The hero’s attitude: take the lead while everyone else follows. Smartphone subscribers were expected to comprise 46% of the global population by the end of 2016 according to Forrester. The market opportunities will decrease quickly, but those who understand the trends will stay ahead. 2017 is not so much about new as it is about the increasing intimacy of our relationships with smartphones.
