[MWC 2014] Here we are at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and Stephen Elop has taken to the stage by touting just how well Windows Phone as a mobile operating system has done for itself over the years, where we are now at a point in time when Windows Phone holds 10% of the mobile operating system market, with an interesting snippet that the Nokia Lumia 1020 is the one which is pushing sales. The recent introduction of the Nokia Treasure Tag proximity sensor, as well as the Nokia Lumia Icon launched alongside Verizon Wireless in the US, will help bring the smartphone manufacturer to greater heights. Not only that, Elop also shared that BBM as well as Photoshop Express will be making their way to the Windows Phone platform, although an estimated release date was not shared with the masses.
Do you think that BlackBerry will go the way of Sega, as in they will eventually drop all hardware development and just focus on software? After all, when was the last time you heard someone get all excited about a new BlackBerry smartphone release, and cannot wait to queue up to be the first in the world to own one? Yeah, I guessed likewise, to. Perhaps BBM on the Windows Phone platform would be a strategic and beneficial move for both.
