Tech Trends | Overview

Tectonic shifts Almost every year, we notice new trends emerging into prominence. In the past few years, Tablets have held centre stage and it is believed in a year or so will also overtake PCs in shipments, yet the spotlight is already shifting away towards new categories. While Tablets will continue to be a fast growing category, IDC believes that the rising popularity of phablets (large screen smartphones) will take away some market from the large screen tablets. In addition, new categories of wearable smart devices like Google Glass, smart watches are emerging and is likely to find significant adoption, especially among youth as these devices will have more aspirational appeal. They may also become statements of fashion. Or they could also be utility devices like the Filip, AT&T’s new connected wearable device and which helps parents keep a tab on where their kids are at all times and provide as well a means of communication. According to Juniper research, there could be great significant opportunities for recurring subscription revenues as well as for apps as these categories evolve further. Sales of smart glasses, smart watches and wearable fitness trackers reached 8.3 million units worldwide in 2012, up from 3.1 million devices in the previous year and are growing at a CAGR of 50.6%, according to Berg Insight. While wearable fitness and activity trackers constitute the vast majority of the shipments today, by 2017, smart watches are expected to take the lead. Wearable technology is expected to shift from being smartphone accessories into becoming proper stand-alone computing devices. Google, Sony and Samsung have already launched products and other major players such as Apple and LG are expected to soon enter the market. A lot many of those concept devices you may have seen in the 007 Movies are now beginning to look more real with each passing day. This hectic pace of innovations is not confined to consumer Technology. In the enterprise markets, we have seen how Big data, the cloud and now trends like SDN (software defined networks) are reimagining the industry as we knew it a few years ago. These are irreversible trends and we will likely witness a quickening pace of how these become an integral part of the world around us.

In Focus | Belkin Overview

Ready to Roll Belkin has made a great strides as a brand and its buyout of Linksys was an important milestone. Belkin Country Manager Youssef El-Arif discusses how Belkin as a brand continues to differentiate and grow Discuss the synergy with the two brands Belkin and Linksys coming together Both Belkin and Linksys brands have been in the market for many years. We are perceived as valuable brands by consumers as well as our channel partners. The channel and consumers trust our brands and we have a wide range of products to offer to them. This is a great advantage for both the brands and I am working very closely with the Linksys team to make sure that we are present everywhere in the region; we both have skilled teams and experienced people in the field. We are joining our efforts by sharing experiences and best practises . How important is the Middle East and Africa to the larger Belkin family? MEA is a very important region to Belkin International.

the challenges in the region, we are still aiming to grow not only our business but also our investment in new product innovation and differentiation. And this for sure will help us differentiate ourselves in MEA where there are many players in the market that don’t have the chance to do that. Belkin also recently opened an exclusive store in KSA. Briefly discuss this development. The Belkin Store in Riyadh will serve as an exclusive showroom to display a full range of products available for sale while helping to increase the brand’s presence in the Kingdom. It will provide customers with the opportunity to discover a full range of products in an appealing display, while a knowledgeable and enthusiastic team of retail professionals will deliver expert information and advice to create the finest customer experience. How do you see Belkin navigating through this maze

of competing brands and nonbrands? The reality is that the industry never stands still, it continuously evolves. The market expands and players come and go. Belkin’s commitment to innovation, research and design has inspired more than 2000 products and 200 patents design. We have lots of advantages which put us ahead of everyone else. You would think that price might be the main reason for a brand to be successful, but in fact it is not. There is a need for innovation, fashion, design, solutions, good quality, peace of mind and this is where Belkin has a competitive advantage. Recently we have partnered with Lego, Vans and Orla Kiely which will enable us to offer a variety of iPhone and iPad cases in collaboration with these big brands. Such partnership opens up a whole new audience for Belkin and we are extremely excited to work with these brands that will inspire creativity and promote individuality in people of all ages.

Innovation pays off Soultim Chen Marketting Director, XTOUCH MEA

Are people looking at owning multiple tablets? Yes, customers are looking for multiple tablets. For example, at the beginning people were using tablets with only wifi function. Later people are looking for 3G tablets. Now most people have the tablet based on IOS and Android operating systems and they use them for the entertainment. We think in the future people will have another tablet with Windows system for Business. XTOUCH will present the windows 8-based tablet with Intel chipset in GITEX 2013. Discuss your success so far in the region? So far XTOUCH products have already been launched in over 30 countries in the Middle East 26

October 2013

Soultim Chen, Marketing Director at XTOUCH MEA expounds on how the company is positioned quite comfortably to take a sizable market share in the booming Tablets Business with its innovative and impressive line-up of devices. and Notes when it comes to picking up their next smartphone or tablet? Yes, definitely. People are more open than those in the past and they are always looking for new brands. For example, 3 years ago in tablet and smartphones markets, Apple had taken up 40% market share with their IOS operating system. However, from the IDC’s research recently, now the market share of IOS is around 10%. It shows people are looking for new innovation, new technologies, new systems and new brands. That’s one of the reasons we are confident that XTOUCH can succeed in this field within a short period of time. In addition, creating a trusted brand is a long journey. You have to dedicate to providing benefits to

have the capacity and ability to develop smart watch in such a short period of time. The demand and feedback from the market is great and we have already sold out 10 thousand units XWATCH in the past 2 months. At Gitex, we will launch 2 new smart watches: WAVE1 and WAVE2. We are sure they will definitely attract customers. The most important thing for XTOUCH is innovation, which is regarded as XTOUCH’s DNA. Also this is the promise for our business partners and customers. As an XTOUCH partner, they will never worry that they will fall behind the new technology. XTOUCH products cover all of the GCC countries, and we are looking forward to cooperating with powerful distributors.
