In the market of smartphone we shall continue to see innovations upscaling demand from the users perspective. Meanwhile, the competition shall lead to consumerisation of technology as it is.
In addition, soonest we shall experience innovations grow to real opportunity within the context of virtualization and security.
1 Virtualization - very recently VMware exhibited a prototype handset which is expected to run on designed Windows Phone 7 in parallel with an Android OS. Amongst the smartphone makers, LG has already commenced work on this aspect - VMware and LG have sealed an agreement for virtualization software to be introduced to LG's handsets. Impressively, what dimmension will this take smartphone markets to? already competition in the world of smartphone is very strong.
2 Security - issues and concern over security of smartphones have not really been tackled or keen focus on security of smartphones from the users' perspective hasn't been met by smartphone makers. RIM - Blackberry maker appears to be the only smatphone maker earned itself kudos on this. RIM has an end-to-end security application experience. The question now is, can virtualization creates a different approach to the markets or make a way for solving security problem of smartphones?

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee.

Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
