With CES only a few short days away I anticipate that we will see mobility market corporate positioning like never before.
It will come in a slew of new product launches, patent suit news, good deal announcements, OS/Device upgrades, and yes countless lies and rumors all mostly intended to capture our interest and purchase decisions.
Some will be smoke and mirror announcements that will never see the light of day. Other announcements may be intended to simply slow up or confuse the competition.
As diligent consumers we all need to do our homework and closely follow developments.
