Landline phones were largely replaced by mobile phones in 2001 and 11 years later it appears personal computers are headed in the same direction. The number of Internet-connected mobile devices are projected to surpass the number of desktop and laptop personal computers in use in 2013.
According to The Economist’s Daniel Franklin, mobile companies received $3.9 billion in venture capital investments in the first half of 2012 -- 46% of all venture capital invested. More funding went into mobile firms in 2011 than in any year since 2001, Franklin tells The Daily Ticker.
