The smartphone has largely taken over our digital lives, but if the Ericsson Mobility Report is anything to go by, mobile devices and other smart gadgets will continue to grow in prominence over the course of the next decade.

According to Ericsson, IoT devices are set to overtake mobile in the connected devices category by 2018.

The IoT space will maintain a hefty compound annual growth rate of 23 percent between 2015 and 2021.

Video is set to play an increasingly important role in our mobile lives.

People in the 30-35 age range spend four more hours on average watching TV than do teens, something that has remained true since 2011.

Tablets, for example, are generally used for watching longer videos more, while tablets and smartphones are used equally used for watching short videos.
