"Alan Kay, the XEROX PARC computer
scientist, once said, "The best way to predict the future is to
invent it." That
is exactly what the technology industry does every day. We do not let events
happen to us.
We control our destiny because we own innovation and we invent the
January 7, 1927, the first
transatlantic telephone call was made, from New York to London. Today,
billions of people around the world have a wireless phone in their pocket.
Thanks to wireless
innovation, buckets of minutes and mobile data services bring
the power of the Internet to mobile users.
Indeed, the processing power of that pocket-sized device
exceeds that of early mainframes that took
up entire rooms. And you can see it all here at CES, from
wireless broadband networks to applications, fromhandsets to tablets, from
touch screens to OLE D."
Since 1967, the International CES has
been the one
spot on the globe where almost every major in-
novation in consumer
technology has been unveiled.
And are you ready for this? CEA

will be the year that
wireless phones surpass TV

category for the first
Shapiro went on to say:
"But for today, TV is still king. Our
nation completed the transition to digital television in 2009 without so
much as a hiccup. Actually, we completed
the transition twice – once in February and again in June. I
often said that the DTV transition was our industry’s
Y2K – and it turned to be just as much of a nonevent.
What I love most about the
success of this transition is that our industry didn’t look back or gratuitously
celebrate the transition with an end-zone dance. We
immediately set to work on the next-generation of
innovation. CEA is working with our broadcast partners setting
standards for mobile DTV, and we are
getting 3D TV ready for widespread consumer adoption."

said theater audiences have already embraced this new way of watching
films, with four of the 10 films released in 3-D ranking among the
top movies at
the box office. "With 3-D, we give them the feeling of being
immersed in the stories and characters," Katzenberg said.

But I'll tell you, the most important thing, the cell
phone has become the most
widespread platform human
beings have ever created. The cell phone market is
than the market for radios, TVs and the internet and fixed telephones, obviously, so this is the biggest platform in the history of mankind. Pretty
So let's change, let's talk about the internet revolution.
We have this
vision that the wireless internet would fundamentally change the world and it
going to have a more profound impact on the world than the wired
internet. And I think that's what's
happening right now. There's all these app
developers out there, they're bringing tremendous creativity
to mobile devices.
End result is a better internet experience. That's a big change from the early
wireless, when there were only really a few vertically integrated
companies and those companies were
just – they were the ones who defined what
went into a phone. It was kind of a closed system. And as
a result then, there
really were only a few people who could innovate. So what's changed? I mean why
is there so much interest now in the mobile internet? It's because it's about
entirely new possibilities.
It's a change. It's the internet that you take with
you and it's becoming more and more integrated into your
life wherever you are.
It's changing the internet from a sit-down experience to a carry-along
And that's something that's making it real-time, location aware,
changing it into something that has a lot
of context to it and makes it very
personalized. So you personalize the things that you choose to access
things or people that you allow to have information and access to you.
Reports are that China and the
Asian and Latin American will
see huge growth in technology
Today, our industry estimates there
are about 4.6 billion mobile subscriptions
among the planet’s 6.8 billion
people. We’re nearing the day when we’ll be able to declare the entire
connected. Of course, the rapid spread of this technology in the developing
world has occurred
in a fundamentally different way, compared with the West.
Modern western telecommunications began
with the telegraph and then telephone
lines strung across the continent. Access to the Web spread first
over phone lines, then via broadband cable, and now wirelessly.
Executive Officer Steve Ballmer kicked off this year's keynote sessions with an
take on how his company
plans to not only extend its reach in the home entertainment market, but
transform the sector as
well. "From the largest screen on the wall to the smallest screens in people's
pockets, we are
delivering the entertainment people want," Ballmer said.
