More than half of the devices launched at CES earlier this month were connected. That’s according to the GSMA, a worldwide association of mobile operators and related companies. GSMA calculated that more than 90% of TVs at CES, 70% of automotive devices, 44% of healthcare devices and 30% of cameras were connected.

GSMA predicts there will be 24 billion connected devices in the world by 2020. That’s up from 9 billion today. It identified car connectivity as an especially important product category to watch.

At this year’s CES, more than 40% of the connected devices announced were gadgets such as laptops and smartphones. The rest were non-gadgets, such as those in the “home lifestyle” category, which, according to the GSMA, made up 30% of the connected devices at CES. The products in the home lifestyle category included connected TVs, smart refrigerators and Internet-connected washers and dryers. Read Write Web
