It is unreal how on the ball Tomi is. I don't know how he does to keep up with everything in the ever rapidly growing industry. He always seems to be ahead of the news and where things will end up. It's nice to get a perspective of how these mobile wars are playing out. It makes you wonder if it's a battle of the OSs or battle of Hardware. Who will be the players that last? Who will die off? Will there always be this much competition? One thing is for sure. Tomi is there to cover it all! keep up the good work.

Depending on what you are looking at the operating system numbers for Apple should be doubled since the itouch runs the same operating system and, while no one but Apple knows for sure, seems to be selling at a somewhat faster rate than the iphone.

Speaking of the future, there was an interesting article pointing out that the itouch servers as a "farm system" for the iphone. All of those preteens and teenagers using itouch's getting ready to move to iphones. I certainly see that in my daughters high school.

No one else has such an eco system and I suspect it spells problems for others in the phone industry.

Look at Apple, they more than doubled their market share from 7% to 15% in just one year, I think they're on a roll and who says they won't double it again in 2010? iPhone 4G anyone? 5 bucks they'll do it and in a year from now you'll be reporting Apple with 30%, RIM with like 22% (i dont think they'll grow much due to competition from others and their phones are ugly and clumsy to use), Nokia will go down to around 35% the way they've been innovating the last few years comes at no surprise and the rest who cares those three alone make up almost 90% of the market, Android will grow and eat all of WinMo's shares and some of Nokias and RIM's.

I obviously think Apple has the platform of the future since almost everyone I know has an iPhone or wants their next phone to be an iPhone (Switzerland here), it's crazy but Apple has brought out a MUST-HAVE product as it appears to be and although I don't own one I also want my next phone to be an iPhone. I like the fact that the iPhone has an integrated iPod, that I think is the biggest selling point and then the ease of use and pleasure to the eye (software and hardware). However, they can only grow with that propensity if they cover all their bases; For one, they need additional form factors because with only One phone it's tough since a lot of people hold back due to lack of a physical keyboard, then there are lack of basic functionality like multi-tasking, they also need to get rid of exclusivity deals with carriers, they need to put iPhones in every shelf of every carrier.

These data from mobile phone market surprise us. The competition between different brands of the mobile phone becomes tight.

but I do have a 'bombshell' in the big picture mobile phone handsets market share picture. We have a new entrant into the Top 5, and obviously one of the global brands that for ages has been thought of as a 'big 5' is no longer a big 5 handset maker. Obviously Nokia, Samsung and LG are too big so they are safe.

From listening to music, to taking and editing pictures of teachers, the young community have found various ways to misuse the new technology being made available to them in such small and compact mobile phones.

This is a great blog document and much needed in ensuring
that projects lead to value. It would be of great help to have some generic
examples of benefit maps etc included in the guideline. I have just started out
in the benefits management areana, find it very useful, but am still finding my
feet on the practical application.
