@tech4people: at the end, as you said, "competition is competion"; coming back to your previous post, I could agree on what people are saying and I would report also the whole developers' community is quite upset for the restriction still present on WinMob - it appears as platform not open at all.

Wale,

Yes The Major Advantage that Microsoft has here is Scale.

RIM can't match the Scale/Channel partners that Microsoft has here.

Will they be able to Leverage it successfully?

Only time will tell.

Microsoft intends to capture Africa by launching a promotional offers to mobile and desktop applications developers. This may become a tough battle for Blackerry if not for Samsung.  Any strategic and better move than this? I like it. http://tekedia.com/47388/microsoft-9japps-competition-in-nigeria-win-a-kia-rio/

Mfb,

You sure about Windows 8 on the Apps Front???

Do read this to get a good idea how consumers are thinking about this Critical Issue today

http://searchenterprisedesktop.techtarget.com/news/2240179957/Lack-of-enterprise-Windows-8-app-development-tools-complicates-upgrades

 

Consumers are getting sick of this constant cycle of Upgrades without seeing Genuinely Business Benefits (I heard lot of Consumers are putting off Upgrading their Old Windows XP machines simply because Microsoft still offers support till 2014) and once that happens they may move to the Next most Stable version on the Market(That would be Windows 7 today).

I am just saying...

Nothing is clear-cut yet.

Let's wait and watch!

@tech4people, Windows is not only seeing a rapid growth in the number of apps that are being added to the store daily, but also regular updates that include tweaks to make the apps work better.This will definitely attract more number of users to buy Windows phone.

They need one product to take on the Ipad Mini , one to take on the S4 and HTC-One aggressively and one to compete at the Low end with Samsung's innumerable Offerings.

@tech4people, Lumia 920 is directly competing with S4 and HTC-one. Other Lumia series are directly competing with low end android based phones. Hence I believe Windows has sufficient varieties to compete in different market segments.

Would Apple ever cut down its iPhone prices or produce a less expensive smartphone series to cater for low end income earners in both developed and developing nations?

@Wale, eventually they have to cut the prices because it is already facing tough competition from Samsung. Moreover instead of providing innovative features Apple is providing same old features will minor udpates, which end users may not like.
