11:50 – 12:50 GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE AND VIEWPOINTS

VIEWPOINT: TECH TRENDS: THE FUTURE OF HARDWARE

How smart is the smartphone (or the tablet or the PC)? With more and more intelligence moving to networks and software, how will the device of the future differentiate itself? Do devices run the risk of becoming “dumb” terminals—or does tech stagnate without hardware innovation?

 

Discussion leaders:

Chen Xudong, Senior Vice President, Lenovo Group, and President, Lenovo China

Jessica He, Chairman, Chengdu GoldTel Industry Group

Lei Jun, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Xiaomi Tech

Steve Milligan, President and CEO, Western Digital

 

Moderator: David Whitford, Editor-at-Large, Fortune
