7.5 trillion mobile communications
My recent post discussed mobile growth areas, as many have at this blog (just search past posts) and highlights the current European trend with smart-phones. A recognition of the British localised trends in the mobile marketplace can be read about here: UK_CMR_2011_FINAL.pdf
A news article about an Ovum report suggests the quantity of mobile -calls -texts -images and video messages will reach 7.5 trillion this year. Moreover, it is reported: "In a new forecast, the independent telecoms analyst also predicts that the market will generate revenues of $153 billion this year, up 8% on last year’s performance."
From analysis of a number of cross-market conditions by various market analysts these indicators provide useful coordinates about the future of mobile forensics and evidence. It is very positive, but there is a natural consequence of that success; adjustments will need to be made. Those trends cannot help but bring change and imply there will be a need for transformation from the current investigatory set up and a shake up of the stoggy and bloated surface-level superficiality stifling and damaging the approrpriate structural processes inherent in the mobile forensics and evidence tree, perhaps illustrated by the way in which honey-fungus of the genus Armillaria variety eats at the very core of a tree.
