Connectivity will be a force to reckon with according to the Yankee Group’s connected device forecast, which predicts more than 60 percent of U.S. households will have a home network by 2013. As consumers crave more control of their experiences, a new era of connectivity is being ushered in with easier-to-use home networks, self-identifiable connected devices and faster home network speeds.

According to the Yankee Group, by 2013, U.S. households will have:

• 30 million connected Blu-ray players
• 50 million connected HDTVs
• 11 million digital media adapters

According to the forecast "Connected Consumers, Connected Devices: 2009 U.S. Forecast, Part 1," moving broadband content beyond the PC will become routine for millions of households, across millions of devices. Wireless photo frames, home audio players, appliances and all other manner of devices will be connected, giving consumers the ability to access multimedia, entertainment and other content when they want it, where they want it.
