====================================

Many consumers believe smartphones will cease to exist within five years, according to new research carried out by researchers on behalf of Ericsson.

The company's ConsumerLab questioned more than 100,000 customers in its native Sweden and 39 other countries, seeking their views on their technological desires for the future.



Smartphone sales stutter across Europe


Half of the respondents said they thought mobile technology would be a thing of the past by 2021, with increasingly prevalent artificial intelligence superseding many of its functions.


Rebecka Cedering Ångström of Ericsson ConsumerLab said: "A smartphone in the hand, it's really not that practical. For example, not when one is driving a car or cooking. And there are many situations where display screens are not so good. Therefore, one in two think that smartphones will belong to the past within five years."


She also predicts that evolving technologies will enable customers to enhance their leisure time.
"Just imagine watching football and being able to choose from where you want to see the game from different places in the stands, or perhaps even from the pitch. Shopping is also an area where you could [virtually] try on shoes and see how they fit on your own feet."


Ericsson ConsumerLab's new report, 10 Hot Consumer Trends for 2016, claims to represent the views of 1.1 billion people across 24 countries.

Michael Björn, Head of Research at Ericsson ConsumerLab, said: "Some of these trends may seem futuristic. But consumer interest in new interaction paradigms such as AI and virtual reality (VR), as well as in embedding the internet in the walls of homes or even in our bodies, is quite strong."

"This means we could soon see new consumer product categories appearing - and whole industries transforming - to accommodate this development."

Very good and insight news. Like self driven cars, the phones could also be self controlled. Technology is being introduced every where. Thanks for the info.

May be true. Technology keeps changing on a very fast track. For eg. Pager was a very short lived gadget. And if we see mobile technology has also gone a drastic change over the years. Who knows may be the next decade belongs to projector phones or even sort of chips planted on our bodies?!!!!

The next decade would test and taste technologies from Google on VR (Virtual/Augumented Reality) & Microsoft is working on Hologenic Display (Holographic Display) the patent for which they have aquired and product is yet to be shown. Mostly mind driven (Brain Controlled).
