News, analysis and commentary from the black left.

Vivek Wadhwa steals the show at ReadWrite mixer, predicting massive change for 2013 from $20 tablet

See on Scoop.itAlt Digital

Vivek Wadhwa was a surprise guest of Dan Lyons yesterday night at the ReadWrite mixer in San Francisco.

 

Last year, Wadhwa made predictions for tech in 2013 that turned out very accurate: slowing growth in social media, Zynga and Groupon’d stock crash, etc… This year he brought in stage the $20 tablet that was recently announced and talked about the powerful change it could bring particularly in developing countries. He also blamed All Things D’s Kara Swisher for not covering the news and missing the most important trend in mobile computing (you can see from the picture she’s not exactly thrilled by his attack).

 

Education, Business, Commerce, etc… : bringing billions online will impact all these areas in a major way. As he pointed out, hundreds of million people in India already invested in a $50 cell phone which became their vital communication device. A $20 tablet could bring even more important change.

 

The revolution is going global.
