  • The number of Smartphone and tablet "rookies" users will increase, also the need for better user experience, better design and more mobile application and media. 
  •  

  • Localization for the Mobile and Social application is one of the biggest trends, starting from Groupon like business to Google and Amazon
  •  

  • Applications will replace the websites, traditional publishers will go mobile
  •  

  • Free content and games application will rule, the adoption of micro-transactions is highly expected and needed to start selling.
  •  

  • Privacy is still an issue, application security and threats will become more important because of the sensitivity of the informations stored on smartphones
