2013 was the year of the ph­ablet, with smart watches, Google glasses and hy­brids on the Win­dows op­er­at­ing sys­tem thrown in. This year, the same trends will con­tinue. “We an­tic­i­pate a surge in the cur­rent mo­men­tum on mo­bile broad­band and mo­bile com­put­ing in the com­ing year too,” says Avneesh Agrawal, Pres­i­dent, Qual­comm In­dia and South Asia. San­deep Aurora, Di­rec­tor, Marketing and Mar­ket De­vel­op­ment, In­tel South Asia, has another view. “Both speech and ges­ture to con­trol the in­ter­face have huge po­ten­tial,” he says. “Wear­able tech is be­com­ing big. Even twoin-ones will grow”. New an­nounce­ments will come in with the Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show in Las Ve­gas in Jan­uary fol­lowed by Mo­bile World Congress. We sum up what are likely to be the next big things in 2014.
