Bottom line..people are tired of IOS, which is 6 years old....
no innovation from apple. This is why NOK is doing well. People want something new and are buying Window OS. Samsung also offers something 'newer' than IOS.
Apple did NOTHING in iphone 5 but increase the size and power. Now they are talking about bringing different colors in iphone 6 ??
BB10 will definitely do very well in 2013. It has a strong worldwide following, and even in US people will try a new phone with new features. After first 2-3 qtrs, we will have to see how it does against the competition. Reviews on BB10 have been quite positive. All analysts agree it is better than android and comparable to high end smartphones.
RIMM does not need to be the smartphone leader...even if it climbs from 7% to 15% market share, stock will to go $25.
