BBC News Website's Top 5 Technology Predictions for the year 2008!

As 2008 has set in, companies are busy making various predictions, and foreseeing what technologies, products etc are going to make a mark for themselves this year. There is no doubt that 2007, was the year of innovation, from the much-awaited iPhone to iRobot’s Roomba to the Rock Band Video Game, the year saw it all. Will 2008 be able to keep pace with the year that was, or is it just going to fizz out. Well we certainly cannot predict on that, but what we can do is have a look at the five major developments in 2008, as projected on BBC’s News website.



The five predictions are:

1. The web to go

2. Ultra mobile PCs

3. IPTV

4. Wimax

5. Mobile VoIP


According to the website, next year will see the coming in of more tools such as Google Gears, Adobe Air, and Microsoft Silverlight that incorporate the capability to make rich web content available offline.

A rise in the popularity of UMPCs is also predicted, and in fact Asus has now estimated that it will sell five million of the tiny machines in 2008. In addition, Apple is also said to be introducing ultra-thin Macbooks using flash this year.

Third on the list is the increase of operators providing internet protocol television (IPTV) services.

Also included in the list is WIMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), a wireless technology that has the ability to deliver high speed broadband over long distances.

And finally Mobile VoIP is what the five predictions list by BBC’s News website sums up with. The Mobile VoIP technology makes it possible for users to make cheap phone calls over the internet.
