What’s NOT Going to Happen in 2012?

Oyster Bay, New York - 13 Dec 2011

​As 2011 comes to a close, ABI Research is back again for its seventh consecutive edition of “What’s NOT Going to Happen.” Instead of trying to predict what will unfold in the next 12 months, ABI Research’s analysts are traveling off the beaten path to provide their best insight on all of the progress we will not be making this coming year.

2011 proved to be a turbulent year for the global economy. Although the economic downturn is reported to be officially over, the global economy still sits on shaky and uncertain ground.

With this in mind, predicting exactly what 2012 will bring seems difficult. ABI Research’s analysts, however, are a little more sure about what exactly we won’t be seeing from the technology sector in 2012. From mobile devices and apps, gaming and 3D, LTE and WiMAX, the connected car and hybrids, and much more, our analysts will take a stab at some of the questions on our minds as we head into 2012:

Will anyone stop Apple from bullying operators?

Will RIM pull its ailing tablet business from the market?

Will 2012 be the year of the smart city?

Will LTE finally take the lead in 2012?

What’s the prognosis for NFC?

How will the home automation market shake out?

ABI Research’s “What’s NOT Going to Happen in 2012” provides an informative, decisive, and occasionally humorous read on our analysts’ expert opinions for 2012.
