12 APR 2011

Qualcomm chief executive Dr Paul E. Jacobs used his keynote presentation at the GSMA Mobile World Congress to state his belief that the mobile industry is on the verge of undergoing another step in its evolution with it being positioned as the hub for connecting with many other devices. “Our phones will become our ‘sixth sense’, and we’re at a similar stage of evolution to when the mobile Internet started to happen,” he said. Jacobs claimed there will be hundreds or thousands of things around us that we will be able to connect to.
