commendable ang pag-angat ng Samsung. nagbenefit ang Samsung sa kabagalan at complacency ng Nokia.
- Hardware side - hindi sila magaling mag-design. marami silang iphone-wannabe celfone at bumenta itong mga iphone-wannabe kasi marami gusto magka-iphone na di naman afford.
- Software side - they use Android. nothing special. Laggy.
- Hardware side - proven na, they can reinvent. they have outstanding design-Lumia.
- Software side - they don't just use Windows Phone OS. They have special and exclusive agreement with Microsoft and it will be realized in Apollo version.
Ecosystem and its services are deciding factors for customers. Samsung has no strong ecosystem. Samsung is dependent on Google and Google is now tightly committed to Motorola (rival of Samsung). Samsung and Microsoft are friends. On the other hand, Nokia and Microsoft are best friends, Nokia has exclusive agreement with Microsoft about windows phone. Microsoft has huge ecosystem (home, enterprise, gaming, software development). Nokia can benefit from that ecosystem with right execution.
Nokia was the king for 14 years. It can still work on its strength. It can revive itself.
Former Nokia CEO: 10 years ago we knew we had to work on our software, but we didn’t
May 6th, 2012
“It mostly began with the weakness of our software platform capabilities
and the fact that it was not a European strength. We identified this ten years ago,
towards the end of the 90s, at the beginning of 2000, that this should become
Nokia’s strength, but we were not able to build it. Something that would have
exploded the normal, safe way of thinking, a kind of violent shake-up, that would
have woken up the entire organization ten years ago.”
Samsung dethrones Nokia, but can it wear the crown?
April 27, 2012
Services and the overall user experience are what will determine smartphone vendors' fates, not hardware specifications.
"The industry has told us that hardware alone doesn't get you a sustainable position," he said. "They've risen on hardware but that's probably not the go-forward strategy." Moreover, Samsung cannot leverage its scale in content and services, because unlike in hardware, it doesn't have those resources. Its Media Hub platform has been respectable but does not compare to iTunes or even Amazon's library of content. Without a strong and compelling services strategy, Samsung's position at the top will not be secure.
Nokia is no longer the handset king; Samsung sits on the throne. But as Shakespeare wrote: "Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown." --Phil

- Analyst: Raymond James
- Analyst: Bernstein Research's Pierre Ferragu
The studies were compiled by Raymond James analyst Travis McCourt in conjunction with Pierre Ferragu of Bernstein Research, and were based on sales data taken from 15 AT&T stores in the US and 15 separate UK retailers.
It claims that the 900 is selling “reasonably well” in the States and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down.

Canaccord Genuity analysts find Nokia Lumia 900 the second best selling smartphone on AT&T in April
In fairness to HTC One X, it is an adorable unit compared to Galaxy-S3 which is poorly designed.
Apple to Samsung: Copycat!
May 8, 2012
According to patent expert Florian Müeller, writing for his own blog FOSS Patents, the iPhone
maker in court documents underscored “massive sales” of Samsung’s “copycat products”:
While the parties have been readying the case for trial Samsung has vaulted
into first place in worldwide sales of smartphones, with massive sales of its
copycat products. Samsung’s infringement of Apple’s intellectual property has
already resulted in damages that reach billions of dollars. [...] It is critical to
Apple to start trial on July 30, to put an end to Samsung’s continuing infringement.

What is the best cellphone ever?
300+ apps being submitted every day
Now more than 90,000 apps in Marketplace
May 14, 2012
The Windows Phone 7 Marketplace has continued its sprint to 100,000 apps, crossing the 90,000 app mark recently.
WP7Applist.com has been crawling the 65 worldwide Windows Phone Marketplaces looking for the total number of unique apps, and their count has already crossed 90,327 with a dozen more marketplaces to go. This method is different from their usual survey, which does not count all markets, resulting in the number higher than their usual official result.
The last noted milestone was 82,000 announced by All About Windows Phone on the 3rd April and with more than 300 apps being submitted every day we should be well over the 90,000 mark now.
A number of apps in the 6 digit range should go far negate the argument that Windows Phone has no apps, so we look forward to that major milestone, likely in the next 3-4 weeks.
^ I hope the new Windows phone OS turns out great and obtain more quality apps. I'm sick of fiddly, fussy, laggy Android.
Shame on Samsung.
- Samsung Purchase “Lumia” Search Keyword on Twitter
May 20, 2012
This is so wrong but fair game in marketing. Verizon and Samsung have purchased the keyword ‘Lumia’ on twitter. So depending in the region you are located in, when you search for Lumia on twitter, you get a sponsored tweet from Verizon and Samsung.
- Lumia overtakes Droid as Google Search term
May 20, 2012
It looks like in under a year since Nokia had debuted the Lumia series of Windows Phone devices, the Lumia brand is now gaining mind share against more stablished product lines, such as Motorola Mobility’s Droid series based on Google’s Android operating system. According to the latest Google search statistics, it appears that the search term ‘Lumia’ has now overtaken ‘Droid’ on the Internet giant’s search service.
Verizon, which had backed Android heavily with the Droid campaign and is now a heavy iOS player, recently bought the Lumia keyword search on Twitter. When users search Lumia on Twitter, Verizon Wireless would pop up. Similarly, Samsung, which is most well known for its Android efforts in the U.S., had done the same thing and when users search Lumia, Samsung Mobile would appear.

FIRST: Apple’s Siri: the ‘best smartphone ever’ is the Nokia Lumia 900
SECOND: Even Galaxy S III’s S Voice Thinks That Windows Phone Is The Best Smartphone Around
Objectively speaking, Windows Phones are the best phones, as measured by customer satisfaction, which should after all be the only measure humans should use. see study
Now Samsung’s Siri clone, S-Voice, as seen on the Samsung Galaxy S III, appears to be endorsing the HTC Trophy as the answer to “What’s the best smartphone.”
