Research and Markets: 2013 Report on the Rise of Media Apps in Smart Mobile Devices

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "2013 Report on the Rise of Media Apps in Smart Mobile Devices" report to their offering.

Smart phone device shipments will surpass the total number of computing and digital media devices shipped in 2013. However, the challenge posed by smart media devices is not about the devices themselves, but rather the software platforms (i.e., Apple iOS, Google Android (News - Alert), Windows RT and others) upon which they run. They have become the basis for establishing a whole new series of media applications that are fundamentally changing the relationship that consumers have with their media service providers and the digital content they want to access. They afford consumers more control in managing access of their overall relationship with digitl media content.

They incorporate many of the computing, Internet, cloud and social media-type application features that help consumers find and access more of the type of digital content they want to see. These two phenomena pose a number of threats to the existing media service delivery business models, but, in particular, they shift some emphasis from broadcasting digital media over delivery assets to streaming digital media through over-the-top distribution assets, deemphasize the use of broadcast and digital media devices technology as a means of controlling consumer access to digital media content and establish a new context for media service providers to create direct relationships with individual consumers.
