Download This paper analyze key factors that will influence the success of wirelessly connected consumer electronics devices and opportunities for wireless operators and device OEMs as this market evolves. The Consumer Electronics industry is known to favor a single dominant standard for technologies with competing standards (e.g. Betamax vs. VHS, HD-DVD vs. BluRay). In case of wireless connectivity, there is potential for multiple standards to co-exist. However, the standard with maximum penetration in this early phase with the right set of OEM-operator partnerships and successful products will have the upper hand in the next phase of technology upgrade cycle and may ultimately become a dominant standard for connectivity. This paper analyzes key factors that will influence the success of wirelessly connected consumer electronics devices and opportunities for wireless operators and device OEMs as this market evolves.
