Microsoft Smartphone Market Share Fell?

There isn't much for microsoft share to begin with. I don't think theirs shrink; rather, the total market size expand and Android gain more than all the others. Nonetheless, there is still 27% gain worldwide. That's interesting.

The smartphone market in the rest of the world

OK. We all know about China's rise. We also know about Android's momentum.

My question is how those Chiense smartphone manufacturers will genuinely take over the rest of the world. Are the Chinese vendors are sewing up the rest of the world -- India, Africa, Brazil, etc. -- too? Or are we going to see the emergence of some local Indian companies who go directly up against Chinese?

@junko That's an interesting question you might want to get an answer for us readers.

I think a new Chinese startup, OnePlus, has the potential of becoming a poster-child of a new generation of Chinese companies that will leverage not only the Chinese manufacturing scalability, but also the fledgling industrial design talent pool, to compete head-to-head against Western incumbents.

Their very first product, the OnePlus One, sells like crazy among Android fans all over the world. The only thing hampers them now is their own lack of production capacity.

You may want to interview the OnePlus team to find out what their vision is.

Hi Junko, interesting thought India Africa etc. me thinks India's preference to be a service provider rather than a manufacturer might stand in the way. For Africa and Brazil the momentum the chinese and Americans have will make it difficult for them to get traction in time before their markt matures I think. I guess I might find myself sitting on a fence in a couple of years eating my words :-) who knows.

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.
