In a recent article, TechCrunch today discussed the Q1 2012 ad data released by InMobi. There are few interesting points about Nokia and Windows phone that can help us point to the future of Windows and mobile world. Or rather Nokia/Windows partnership and how that can impact iOS and android markets. With about 35% of market share in the global device market, Nokia has a dominating position which it can utilize with Windows 8 in the coming months.
With the dominance in hand in Operating systems, Microsoft can still claim more developers willing to develop products using their platform. Combine this with the large market share of Nokia, the Microsoft/Nokia partnership can be a serious threat to the iOS/android dominated mobile market in the coming months and years. We consider this data in line with what we wrote earlier about Windows 8 and mobile innovation.
