Giant Mobile Manufacturers compete at MWC 2015
This week at Barcelona things seemed to be a little bit uneven, and in a way spectacular; although Apple’s iPhone seemed unstoppable, without any of its manufacturers appearing on scene, securing vast majority of sales in pending markets and the entire handset industry, yet competition in the mobile world seems intensifying.
Big phones, small phones, cheap phones, expensive phones, curved phones from variety of brands are trying to catch the eyes of enthusiasts and passers-by.
The new phones from Samsung, the S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge look more polished and luxurious with the Knox service, which is basically an app that allows you to keep work apps and services separate from personal information on a single phone; have all-glass unified body designs, super high-resolution screens, fast processors and a focus on cameras, fingerprint technology and a forthcoming mobile payments service.
Some other companies like HTC and Microsoft are intensifying the challenge with new mobile versions, though Apple has secured a substantial position in that enterprise and is allying with IBM to create apps and cloud services that are more business-friendly.
Microsoft introduced two new lower-cost Lumia phones in face of high cost not-every-employee affordable iPhone.
Strong in security and data centres, Microsoft has built custom applications around them that can’t be applicable for iPhone6 and Samsung.
On the other hand, Blackphone and Silent Circle introduced the second iteration of their privacy-oriented phone.
BlackBerry is also trying to become a software and services company introducing a suite of apps and services that will be available on iOS, Android and Windows devices later in 2015 although propagating a cheap phone, The BlackBerry Leap, a throwback BlackBerry Classic all-touch-screen device.
Xiaomi, Lenovo and Huawei are Chinese electronics manufacturers having their say in the growing markets like China and India with the latter introducing the 5.5-inch phone called the Honor 6.
With Apple’s layer of services that is becoming more powerful than ever, between music and app sales, cloud storage of precious digital items like photos and eventually even control over your smart home or your car, users of the iPhone are less likely to switch away.
The fading away of hardware for the sake of services that are to be the more complicated define the future of mobile generation and its market takeovers, as such why don’t you support yourself with smart mobile apps and online services from Dow Group for not to be caught steeping in a generation up.
