Four for all
There will be four connected devices for every person on the planet by 2020 according to a new survey from Strategy Analytics. They predict that there will be 33 billion devices connected to the internet by the end of the decade. Currently, there are 12 billion online machines in operation, equating to 1.7 devices per person with the PC making up 10 per cent of this figure. Strategy Analytics say that the mix will continue to move away from both PCs and Smartphones with wearables and smart devices connected to the ‘Internet of Things’ representing the core areas of growth.
