Apple missing
So Apple has continued its tradition set by Steve Jobs to stay away from MWC. So 30% of the world Smart phone and tablet market will not be there. But the other 70% would be.

RIM is still living in a different world
Blackberry still expected to showcase another passport! No Please. The world does not want another BB device. But perhaps RIM is still living in a different world.

Re: Apple missing
Nasimson,

Its true that Apple is a big-big player in the Smartphone and Tablet space;but they are'nt the only one there.

As long as Samsung,LG,MSFT,Quacomm are involved with MWC it will continue to be extremely relevant and Big-big news in the Telecom Space.

Especially at the Bottom of the Pyramid(where majority of the Growth is going to come from going ahead);these Players(especially after MSFT decided to partner with some Asian OEMs to give away Windows Mobile for Free there) are going to matter more-Much,much more.

Re: RIM is still living in a different world
Nasimson,

If you actually look at Blackberry's Strategies going ahead you will be quite surprised especially their Intense focus on Services and Secure Software(where they remain very,very good).

Its true that their Handsets are'nt that great but a lot of Executives continue to swear by them(you will be surprised).

BBM is'nt quite dead yet.

Not Yet.

Nasimson,

Not yet.

As Long as there remains a market for Extremely Secure Communication Handsets -Blackberries will continue to survive.

No one else(amongst the Major Manufacturer's comes even close).

Re: Apple missing
@nasimson,

You make a very valid point.... but maybe this is specifically Apple's strategy.

And actually...that's a good strategy to see what competitors are doing, and take your time to do the R&D to be able to answer/provide comebacks

What's amazing is that even though Apple is absent from this events, it's still dominant in many areas. It's market share may not be the biggest, but it's reputation is impecable.

Trying to hard?
Not sure if it's only me, but from Samsung what I see when they launch one or two (or three) phones in a year is more of a desperate effort than actual ingenuity.

It feels they're trying to cramp every possible feature that would pls consumers, yet not really deliver in a good overall experience, specifically refering that even though Samsung phones have every bell and whistle imaginable, it's still running Android, meaning it's still sharing the same pool as many other competitors.

Don't get me wrong...I love Android (have a Nexus 7 and absolutly love it), but when it comes to OS, I find both iOS and Windows Phone to be more polished, fluid.

And the thing is... whatever Samsuing enviels, it'll only be in peoples mind for three or six months, and then the next guy will have the same feature but with less fat.

Both Windows Phone and iOS keep things well integrated, meaning that the experience will go beyond the first month of use (this at least has been my experience).

Re: RIM is still living in a different world
@Ashu: RIM'S perceived security is more than actual security. In almost all countries, it has provided LI legal Intercepts to government and agencies.

"Don't get me wrong...I love Android (have a Nexus 7 and absolutly love it), but when it comes to OS, I find both iOS and Windows Phone to be more polished, fluid."

 

@mejiac: I think this trade-off has always been there. While Andrioid is less stable and does have bugs, it is also less restrictive and gives more freedom to the users. Most users would appreciate that. I know many people who feel frustrated at how there are so little options in iOS compared to Android.
