If you haven't seen it yet, I encourage you to check out Paul Jackson's latest report entitled, "The Convenience Quotient of Portable Computing." Here's the abstract:
It's an intriguing report, but don't just take my word for it: James Kendrick over at jkOnTheRun posted a nice piece about this report as well, and other media outlets have been banging on our door.
Clients: Paul would welcome the opportunity to discuss this report with you — just follow the normal process for setting up an inquiry.
Also: We've got other CQ docs in the works, and we'll be sure to let you know when they publish. CQ isn't just for tech products, either. My forthcoming CQ document applies the methodology to customer service, by examining the consumer benefits and barriers associated with various modes of resolving a customer service issue (live phone, email, online chat, etc.).
Do you have questions about Convenience Quotient, or need help understanding how it could be useful for developing your own product strategy? If so, please reach out to me, James McQuivey or J.P. Gownder. We'd be happy to help you figure it out.
