Even Siri says Nokia Lumia 900 is best smartphone ever.
I believe, the tiny number of professionals know inside and out of smartphone components. What about the substantial number of consumers ? Whom i think lager percentage of them like to jump in the bandwagon. Why not be on the market watchout for at least Q3/Q4 of 2012 to decide if best fits Nokia.
Its market growth is playing major impact to Samsung success. And it feels creating own software application that would enable its products run on would not cause any harm. If eventually Samsung abandons Android OS what scenario would that create to smartphone market?
Google's Android came from nowhere to become the leading smartphone operating system.
@Bolaji, one of the things that might be worrying Google is the announcement by Samsung that the "company is working on merging its Bada mobile operating system with the open-source Tizen operating system". This clearly shows that Samsung is not comfortable using Android and in the long run they would want to develop their own OS. Nokia wont face this problem because Microsoft doesn't own its own mobile business.
It is surprising that MS is not marketing Windows OS but I am sure it doesn't mean they don't trust their product. Probably they are waiting for the right time and with linkages with hardware manufacturers they will soon come out with a bang. Atleast, I hope so.

Peter Drucker famously said "Trying to predict the future is like trying to drive down a country road at night with no lights while looking out the back window." Yet in the razor's-edge world of electronics—with a lean supply chain and just-in-time demands—the need to know the future is vital.
While no one really can accurately predict the future, we can take guidance from another Drucker saying which is the best way to predict the future is to create it.
You've heard the saying "the No. 1 supply chain risk is your people." That hasn't always been the case. But today's complex global supply chain requires a new type of multitalented employee. It's one who understands, finance, marketing, economics, is savvy with technology, graceful with relationships and can think analytically.
Where are these people? Are universities properly preparing the next generation supply chain professionals? How do train your existing workforce for these new, demanding positions?
Brian Fuller, editor-in-chief of EBN, will lead a 60-minute Avnet Velocity panel discussion that will ask and answer these and other questions swirling around today's supply-chain talent challenges.
