Gartner sees sunny days ahead for Windows Phone, which it says will reach 10% worldwide market share by 2018. Is that an on-target prediction, or is Gartner far off the mark?
Google Auto partner Audi will integrate Apple's CarPlay for iOS 8 inside future cars in addition to support for the Android in car system.
Samsung is trying its best to become, if not the sole purveyor of Android devices, certainly the top source. With all the usual sound and fury, the company has announced its latest tablet: the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, a new high-end device with sleek lines, an impressively light weight and a very bright, sharp screen.
I'm researching crowdfunding at the moment, so I thought it would be useful to share a few ideas to help developers (and investors) exploit the huge innovation opportunities Apple will reveal at WWDC.
With Apple's price cut of the least-expensive 11-inch Macbook Air to $899, it now carries the same price tag as Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 tablet. Given that they cost the same, which is the better machine for you?
Microsoft may say that its future lies in devices and services, but at the moment it's losing big in the devices market: $300 million and counting for the Surface in the last nine months. And the more Surfaces it sells, the more money it loses. Is this any way to turn around a company's mobile strategy?
User interfaces won't be defined by what you see on the display forever, of course. Voice and gesture recognition will become part of the user interface equation -- this absolutely makes sense when the challenge of developing logical user experiences for wearable devices really takes off.
Yesterday's announcement that Windows Phone and Windows for small tablets will be free for device makers was an admission from Microsoft that its mobile strategy has failed. Will it help save the company in mobile, or is it too little, too late?
One big reason Windows tablets and smartphones don't sell well is the app gap: There are far fewer apps available for Windows tablets and Windows Phone devices than for iOS and Android. With Microsoft's announcement of universal apps that run on all Windows devices, though, that may well change.
