Will the new $99 Nokia Lumina 900 finally get Microsoft traction in the smartphone game?
jack12 1 year ago
The only question I have when ranking market penetration of smartphones is whether Windows devices are 3rd (ahead of RIM) or 4th (behind RIM). The new Nokia Lumina 900 is a great looking phone just from a design standpoint, but then again so were some of the Symbian OS phones that Nokia put out, and we know how well those did in the US. It seems like an uphill battle to get enterprise users to adopt another platform when many already have to deal with Android and iOS, as well as RIM devices for some companies. I guess if you support BYOD and get enough employees buying Windows phones, it might push Windows support. What do you think, will having what looks like a pretty sweet device at a low price point finally kick in the door for Microsoft?
