Cellular Broadband One of Gartner's 10 Mobile Technologies to Watch in 2010 and 2011

One of Gartner's 10 Mobile technologies  "that will evolve significantly through 2011 in ways that will impact short-term mobile strategies and policies" is Cellular Broadband.

Here is what Gartner (Nick Jones, vice president and distinguished analyst) say about it:

"During 2010 and 2011, the availability of multimegabit wireless broadband performance will continue to grow as mobile networks enhance their broadband performance. Continuous improvements in wireless broadband performance will increase the range of applications that no longer require fixed networking, and make cellular broadband a more effective fallback when fixed connections fail. Embedded cellular networking will become a standard feature of many corporate laptops, and will enable new types of network-connected devices and business models, such as e-books and media players". 

See the other 9 mobile technologies, many of which will also impact the use of mobile data, here.

I believe that mobile broadband will be even more substantial, not only as a fallback but as a real alternative to fixed broadband (DSL, Cable) for home users.
