Why This Company Will Be a Mobile Winner

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world. David was struck by a quote in Technology Review from Nuance CTO Vlad Sejnoha recently: "Speech is ideally suited to mobile computing." David believes he's exactly right. Nuance develops voice and natural language technologies. Applications range from dictation to control, with plenty in between. David can imagine a time when voice interfaces replace the keyboard, especially in mobile computing. Think about it: Why do we need to type or swipe when voice commands can do things for us? And the technology is spreading. Ford and others have put it in cars, a place where hands are busy (hopefully). Nuance has also been reported to be powering Apple's Siri. Google has voice-recognition software too in its Android phones, as does Microsoft. Nuance is definitely a leader and may have a big advantage. As more people use its technology, the company can improve it, much the same way Google refines its search algorithms. And if it really takes off, Nuance could be a surprise winner in the world of mobile. Perhaps it belongs next to the other mobile leaders, Google and Apple.

Big tech names like Apple and Google might garner a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
