Now with 4G LTE in play we are talking average speeds over 20Mbps, the processing power have grown exponentially from few hundred Mega Hertz to Giga Hertz in just half a decade, the next couple of decades could be a " Todays tech dream about tomorrow ".

3. Now coming to the "IS CLOUD THE NEXT BIG THING," We have to accept that CLOUD surely has the great potential to lead the next TECH evolution but " Contradictory text"
