Strategy Analytics's tech predictions for 2011

Strategy Analytics' tech predictions comment for year 2011 goes like this:
"Connected TV will not be going away, in spite of early glitches: Google, Apple and Microsoft may be joined by Facebook in the race to develop a world-beating cloud TV service. Apple's iTunes will enter its second decade with challenges ahead, and Nintendo will have to decide what to do about the decline of the Wii. Social networks will pass one billion users, $10bn will be spent on Blu-ray discs, and more than 500 million connected TV devices will be in use. Revenues from tablets will exceed netbooks, but on the downside, only 20% of 3DTV owners will be watching 3D content."

"2011 promises to be another exciting year in the evolution of the digital home," says David Mercer, Principal Analyst. "Many of the key elements of the next generation home are now in place, such as connected devices, high speed broadband and advanced user interfaces; it's up to key players to pull these together to create compelling experiences and drive added value."

He continued: "The battles between content owners, technology vendors and service providers for access to consumer revenues will continue. The field is still wide open for any of these players to take a leadership position in the emerging ecosystem. And there will always be opportunities for new players like Facebook to appear from nowhere and threaten established positions."

Among all the predictors the word can't get away is the word "tablet".
