Demand for Media Tablets, Notebooks and eReaders

If you're looking for signs that the U.S. economy is recovering and that business technology spending has returned, then you should look at the recent purchase activity on 3G and 4G non-handset devices -- such as media tablets, notebooks, and e-readers.

This segment of U.S. business spending has become a larger portion of the overall business wireless spend. According to the latest market study by In-Stat, overall spending in this segment was up nearly 30 percent in 2010 -- when compared with 2009 results.

"A key take away from the research is that the non-handset spending increase trend seems to be universal across all sizes of business," says Greg Potter, Research Analyst at In-Stat.

Apparently, there are several variations in some of the vertical segments but, they too, share a robust 2010 and have a very healthy five-year forecast.

Additional data points from the In-Stat study include:

Enterprise spending makes up over 62 percent of business spending on non-handset data services, spending over $1.9 billion in 2010.

Enterprise (1,000-4,999) will increase spending in 2011 by 19.5 percent in the professional services vertical.

Small Office Home Office (SOHO) spending will surpass $275 billion by 2014.

The healthcare and social services vertical represents the largest share of spending, over $400 million in 2010.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
