4:01 “..I see a huge change in the mobile sector. It’s not about devices anymore, it’s not about mobile devices; ok the dialogue about new devices and functionalities is always there from the big vendors; but the biggest thing I see evolving is the convergence of all this communication and connected devices between them. So, the ex M2M play, machine-to-machine play is now transforming into IoT. The biggest trend that is evolving in front of us. It has been discussed for many years and has been an expectation through the research community and also the industry but I see here that there are already some companies positioned, offering products and promoting their technologies and I see that as we progress, year by year, we will see Internet of Things transforming the whole mobile space into something way bigger than we have ever imagined…”
