Report Summary:

The last quarter of 2018 ended was strong but YoY growth was weak.  The forecasts for both Global Business Smartphones and Tablets have been adjusted downwards toward a more conservative growth trajectory throughout the forecast period. As business smartphone and tablet markets continue to mature, mobile devices run the risk of obsolescence if they do not incorporate advanced technology to support the daily life of mobile workers. B2B represents a major opportunity in increasingly saturated and developed consumer markets. To underline the interest in rapidly evolving technology outgrowing mobile devices, much of the talk going forward will be about the future of technology in the mobile phones rather than the phones themselves and that mobile technology is moving into new sorts of devices as part of the digital transformation wave.
