what these latest stats tell us is RIM's market base is in free fall and collapsing, and Windows Phone is DOA. great leadership! stay the course! Apple will get a bump of course with iPhone 5. good goal for next January would be 33% share, which probably will be about where it levels out for good.
oh come on. Amazon itself gave Siegler a hands-on quick look, to boost some hype of course (and boy did he ever gush). he didn't make it up and it's not a fake.
good lord, someone who pays attention to what is actually happening! rare indeed ... welcome. i expect the Amazon tab will sell decently, if it is easy to use. they will certainly push it hard and the price is within reach of more people. but it's still just a 7" Amazon appliance - a niche product. the total of potential tablet buyers who are heavily focused on Amazon as their media source (other than books) is modest. it won't offer the Google cloud services that draw...
that was my point - it's far too soon to be hyping W8. and until the question of forward hardware compatibility for W8 is answered, the hype has already created the uncertainty. you can't put that genie back in the bottle.
to tell you the truth, i can't figure out what people are arguing about. anyway, simple outcome will be that WP 7.0 apps will quickly stop being bought/updated. they're obsolete. and there are just are not that many WP 7 phones in use for them now anyway! most of those small number of current owners will likely update their phone to 7.5 anyhow, and so buy 7.5 apps from now on. they'll only keep running the older apps that are not worth updating to 7.5. like games they...
it's fun to pile on MS. it's fun to poke holes in phony BS. it's fun to tease all the people hyping whatever as the next "threat" to iPhone. and it's pertinent to remind the people now hyping W8 that they better be careful, or they'll get caught in the same trap next time.
look, the issue is simply whether WP 7.0 phone owners can update their phone to 7.5 and use new 7.5 Metro apps and their successors from now on, or not.if "not," they've bought a dead end P.O.S., and all your pissing and moaning about DED is beside the point. there aren't enuff WP 7.0 phones out there to be worth the trouble for developers to provide backward compatible versions of their future 7.5+ apps for. won't happen.oh yeah, they'll be supported for years by MS in...
another Android clone 7" tablet no one needs. not to mention the cheapos from Archos et al that are taking the give-the-kids-anything-to-shut-them-up market Moto can't compete with in price. or the upcoming Amazon 7" shopping tab that Moto also can't compete with in utility. these are just guys trying to keep themselves employed by cranking stuff out no matter what. how soon do you think Google will chop 5000 Moto employees, eh? and "focus" R&D? that said, i do wish...
well yes, this is clearly the general direction, although different companies are following different paths toward it. For Google it's ALL via The Cloud (altho Chrome OS and Android are very different). MS is trying to create a single top level UI layer across everything (no matter what is running underneath), plus a lot of Cloud. Apple is conflating its desktop and mobile UI's more slowly (even tho the foundation OS is much more unified than either of the other two), and...
no, you got it. the problem is that MS totally obfuscated this at the Big Demo a few days ago. the hype got in the way. to add to the confusion, there apparently will be two kinds of W8 apps - those like conventional desktop applications, and those like iPad/droid tablet apps. but both will work on anything running W8, take your pick. the Windows Phone apps, however, are still different! that's CE, oops ... or maybe WinPhone will be converted to W8 OS too. that's ok,...
