There is no argument that Apple iPhone 3G set the beginning of smartphone era, which date back to July 2008. Sales record shows thriving since Q4 2008. By 2013, smartphone era will have its 5 years anniversary. The product will likely enter the commodity stage, thinner profit margin and, steady growth or slow growth of the over all market size. If it is true, Schmidt prediction of price dropping will come true. Questions then 1) What would Apple do to maintain their high profit margin status? Will they create a new product and a new market? What would it be? 2) How would Nokia-Microsoft alliance react to the change of the market? 3) What's the market share going to be like before end of 2013?
