I want to make it clear when I say we are in the post-mobile era, I’m not saying there is some magical device that will replace the smartphone. In this vernacular, the post-mobile era is not like the post-PC era where the smartphone displaced the PC as the primary computer for the masses. There will be no single product that will sell 1.5-2b annually like the smartphone. And whatever is beyond the smartphone is five and maybe even ten years away from mass market adoption. What’s more, connecting the next billion humans and beyond remains a critical initiative, but it is one that will be much more difficult than connecting the previous two billion.
