Now, that would take a good effort from Samsung to trump Nokia off its perch at the top for number of units. At 9% growth, it might still be some time away and considering the windows experiment, who knows nokia might be able to arrest the trend by then.
For me the interesting comparison will be Nokia's Q4'2010, Q1'2011 and Q2'2011. Nokia has lost so much ground in last two quarters that if it keeps this dismal performance then it will loose out from its rank 1 by this year end.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
