Top 9 Wireless Predictions for 2009

I was browsing through the wireless blogs and I came acorss this article by Fierce Wireless dot com, where they have predicted top 9 events that "may" happen I 2009. The opening paragraph starts with disclouser saying that these pedictions are based on market research and analysis, etc etc .... Well i found first two predictions very interesting. The first prediction says "Motorola handset division will cease to be"... Now what the heck! I use a Motorola phone, I was completely surprised to read that prediction. Anyway mine a very small phone with very limited features. I like its design though, its a flap phone small and cute. Honestly i dont even know its model number. Well, I will be switching over to Nokia soon, plans are to buy Nokia N97.

Next prediction says "The end of the clamshell phone's dominance". They predict that companies will no longer be interested in making small handset with flip feature. But in india where a person below poverty line use a phone, i doubt this trend. Small phones are very much required in india and companies get most of their revenue from there. I was always a fan of flip and slide phones. The big slide phone used in The Matrix is my all time favourite. You finish talking on the phone and hit the silde with other hand to pust it in, and the sound it makes ..aah..awesome. Lets see what 2009 is going to be. Here are the rest of the predictions.

Prediction 1: Motorola's handset division will cease to be - 2009 Predictions
