Well this is a f rank question that I want to ask from you all, I just want to know how long will this 2 companies last in these 2 departments as we can see today phones and tablets are largely dominated by apple and android. I need to know when companies like Microsoft and other small companies come in their department? That’s what I want to know from you all, so what do you all have to say about the same, can you please tell me something about it. if you can see the statistics almost 70% of the market share has been occupied by the apple and the android with almost 50%occupied by android, 27% by android and rest others like nokia, dell and many more. If you could have seen the earlier graph then nokia’s symbian was occupying almost 47% of the market share and now it has jumped down to 16% and all these transition happened in a span of 3 years. With android occupying almost all its share and now android have replaced nokia’s symbian with its own android system. A large credit has been given to the open source nature of the android’s operating system such that people can willingly open and experiment in it. also many applications are available in the android phones and that too in a very smart price which people think is affordable to buy. Well the same is the case with the RIM as well which upon one time was a market dominator with 17% market share now it is only 12%, the story of Microsoft’s own windows phone is nothing different. It had a market share of 20% few years back and now it has considerable reduced to 1%. Thankfully nokia and Microsoft have collaborated and are bringing some good lumia smartphone’s. hopefully they would be able to catch up with these new phones. People did not liked the interface of the windows phone and now with the windows phone 7 it has been simplified considerably, so that people can get used to it very easily.
Still I haven’t come to the main subject, I just want to know till how long will these companies dominate the tablets and the mobile departments that’s what I want to know from you all. Apple has always been a king in tablets and mobile phones but what about Google’s own android will it be able to stay a longer time in the market with stiff competition coming from the HCL, Dell, Nokia-Microsoft, Sony and many more? I just want to know what do you all have to say about the same. I have spoken about my opinion. I want to know what do you all think about the same. Waiting for the response from your side. Make sure if you are expressing out your opinions out over here then be precise on what you say that would be better for me to understand.
