Do you think Mobility is booming sector ?
yes - You are Right.
Do you think IBM plays in Mobility ?
No - You are Wrong !
Most of us feel that Mobility is all about the handset (Mobile phones) and the cool features associated with it...the understanding is wrong !
Mobility and handsets is just like what internet and browser was a decade ago. If you remember there was a big browser war and everyone thought that
having the collest browser is the real play - but it was not.. its what business magic the enterprise plays with this commodities - and that's
where IBM comes in.
If you ever travelled by Air Canada and have used its cool mobile based business functionality - well you are working on IBM code.
Mobile banking on banks like ING - well you are working on IBM code.
there are many such manifestation. The point to note and take away is that the entrerprise play for mobility is beyond the handset
and bunch of API's associated for it. That's exactly where the big blue waves in with its acts on technology.
