Why do you think the Internet of Things and M2M will succeed in a country that has lower average bandwidth per user compared to global standards?

There is a lot of demand in the market for this. I think there is enough bandwidth already to carry out some of the basic functions. Upcoming technologies like 4G, which provide much higher bandwidth, will mature by the time IoT becomes a reality.

What does this mean for embedded Java developers? What can they look forward to?

We see a lot of interest in application development in this area for new kinds of applications. The key areas will be the collection of data from such multiple streams and to process the data by performing operations on the same.

In India a vast majority of portable connected devices (which will all become a part of IoT) run Android, whose development is also based on Java. The number of such developers is rapidly growing. How can they best invest their efforts and time in embedded Java?

While Android is pretty easily available, there are a couple of issues. For example, it cannot get as small as Java can. This becomes important when you are talking about devices which are simply supposed to work as sensors, which are an integral part of M2M. Developers might want to take a look at Java ME.
