New initiatives in wearables and mobile payments take time to mature, gaming and video content distribution is evolving to address new consumption platforms, and device, service, and technology vendor competition is tied to meet the demand for both legacy and emerging technologies," said Greg Ireland, research director for IDC's Multiscreen Video program.
