Top 10 Consumer Mobile Apps for 2012

Ever the would-be high-tech Nostramadus, research company Gartner has picked out 10 software applications it believes will define the mobile computing experience for consumers by 2012. More importantly, Gartner sees the balance of power moving from mobile carriers to consumers, who buy smartphones to access the Web. Gartner Research director Sandy Shen says most mobile users will use no more than five mobile apps, with several killer apps winning out over the riffraff on Apple's iPhone, Google Android smartphones, and handhelds from RIM, Palm, Nokia and others.
