85 votes — Josh Nursing: My TMT Prediction is...

Josh Nursing, a strategist and graduate in Computer Systems Engineering, predicts that Google will create a massive disruption in the telecommunications industry. The three key drivers will be: first, the high-tech Google-branded Nexus One smartphone; second, Google’s acquisition of GrandCentral, gizmo5 and admob, and third, the infrastructure capabilities of dark fibre. Google’s disruptive behaviours in offering the free turn-by-turn GPS, Chrome OS, and free wi-fi service in 47 airports suggests that the company likely has no qualms about introducing disruption into the telecommunications industry. Josh Nursing is one of the five finalists of Deloitte Canada’s "My TMT Prediction is..." contest (http://www.deloitte.ca/mytmt).
