When the news of the Nokia Acquisition came, I thought of the above diagram and how true it will be in the years to come. Now the Game of Phones is about to begin.
Google, Apple and Microsoft are going to go up against each other in what will be one of the biggest fights in the technology space. The outcome of that battle will determine which platform will be used by the mainstream.
In the end, I hope the winners are the users and developers. This year, I will be sitting on the sidelines as I try and get an understanding of the implications of the Nokia Acquisition.
In the meantime, I will have to review my toolbox for the coming year.
