The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which financial and economics sector head Ilan Moscovitz and consumer-goods editor/analyst Austin Smith discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Ilan and Austin discuss why carriers are the big losers from the smartphone revolution. They discuss whether there's any hope for carriers or whether handset makers will keep eating their lunch.

These companies are just one way to play the tech revolution, but there is a better Foolish pick, too. The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that's also absolutely dominating the exploding tech market in China. 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, but you can be among the first to access this just-released report by clicking here -- it's free.
