MobileInfo Comments and Advisory: Smart home market could be huge in future. But it won't stay protected for Sony and HP. HP has the overall IT expertise to develop inter-connected appliances and home devices in a network. Sony can create the devices but does not know how to build networks. However, Sony can purchase a smaller niche company that it does not have. There are a number of niche players here and there are other big players who will enter this market, including the appliance makers.
