Technology and data consumption are evolving faster than mobile networks are able to adapt; what we at iPass are calling “Mobile Darwinism.” The survivors of this evolution will be those who are able to quickly and continually adjust to change. Adaptation will not only be required by the network providers and device manufacturers – look at the decline of Palm and more recently Nokia and RIM/BlackBerry as examples of those who could not adapt – but by enterprise IT departments that rely on mobile services for their workforce. Mobile employees are now using more and
higher resolution data consuming devices, using them more often, and in more places. It’s now Darwin vs. “More-More-More’s” Law.
