Remains to be seen if WP will become a viable 3rd OS for mobile, but so far Nokia has the upper hand in whatever future might come (see link). Not bad for a company that was on the ropes. Consumers win if there is a third strong player.
I'm not sure why we are having this discussion right now. Win8 mobile is out and looks pretty good. It cetainly is 'up there' with IOS and Android and will hugely change the design paradign of the UI from the 25 year old icon based interfaces. Come back in two years - the scenery will have changed for sure!
hey guys, it's time for you all to get down on your foot and try a real Nokia with Win8 or 7.
don't blame it blindly like a group of monkeys.
Anodriod is too boring and simple. I am total sick of the ten's if not hundreads of icons I have to filter through to find an app.
Win7/8 is just more elegant and professional, (of cause I hope they could improve the date exchange experience)
The worst part is, there are millions of eager customers that still swear by Nokia's build quality, photos and brand-value. I think an Android from Nokia would be a best-seller in no time. Its time they swallowed their pride.
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.
