Today, more than ever, people need to be connected. Connectivity is more than just staying in touch with one another via email; connectivity (and being able to be accessed via solutions from vendors such as NeWeb) is integral to business success, too. Wireless mobility is at the forefront of this connectivity trend, and in fact, by 2014, mobile internet usage is expected to exceed desktop internet usage, making mobile technology the next big thing in technology and NeWeb news. The trend is so big that Apple sold 58.3 million iPads in 2012, and they are on track to sell more than 88 million in 2013.
In addition to staying connected, mobile technology leads the way with how consumers get news (eighty one percent of mobile users say they consume information daily on their mobile devices) and how consumers receive information. Consumers also spend money via mobile avenues, too. According to a report from eMarketer, U.S. mobile payments will reach $62.24 billion by 2016 (payments are currently at $640 million). According to Nielsen research, purchases of smartphones have doubled since 2009, and nearly half of those mobile users go to their wireless mobile device to search products and promotions, and ultimately make mobile purchases. These numbers underscore the importance of integrating proven solutions from technology vendors like NeWeb.
The question is, how do businesses stay connected and in front of the face of consumers? Wireless communication companies akin to Wistron NeWeb Corporation can show us how. As more and more network users migrate to mobile and digital platforms to access the internet, email, and social networking sites, (81 percent of mobile users use their device to access news and information each day) a resounding need for websites that are mobile friendly has arisen for any company with a website. Companies like NeWeb provide hardware, software, and design solutions to help customers remain at the forefront of this burgeoning technology.
