Frames and the Personal Cloud

Forrester's Frank Gillett recently published a new report on the growth of tablets titled "Tablets will rule the future Personal Computing Landscape"

Of specific interest to me was Frank's view on how tablets and a new form of personal computer they call "frames" will interact with the personal cloud.

"We predict a new form of PC, called frames, that will rise as a result of tablets and other technology innovations and why tablets will cannibalize laptops but not the new forms of desktop PCs."

This graphic illustrates the interaction between personal mobile devices like phones and tablets with (i) a desktop "frame" for productivity and creation and (ii) the personal cloud.

I like the vision … and believe in the opportunity of synchronized, brokered and context-aware personal cloud services that power today's and tomorrow's mobile devices.
