When I was at Beijing Airport in November preparing to fly back to Taipei, I couldn’t help noticing a video running in the corner of one of the large digital signage systems there depicting a number of futuristic “smart mobile moments” featuring smiling faces gathered around a tablet or smart phone sharing some amazing new nugget of information or special product discount.

Except, of course, such scenarios aren’t that futuristic at all and will very quickly become commonplace as the deployment of big data, cloud, and wireless technologies accelerates. With its dense urban areas, high smart phone usage rates, and growing cloud infrastructure, China is set to be a global leader in this smart mobility space.
