Meeting Summary

As of February this year, 85% of adult Americans utilize smartphones (nearly 300 million).  In 2020, 126 million new phones shipped to users.  Approximately 84% are Android users and 16% Apple users.  There are 3 million apps on the Google Store and 2 million apps on the Apple store.  There may be as many as 9 million apps worldwide.  These statistics demonstrate the vastness and challenges for e-discovery experts.   This presentation will highlight some of the current trends and issues associated with mobile devices in the e-discovery process, from identification to collection and processing.  Devices beyond cellular phones will be addressed as well.
