Analyst Watch: Three smartphone trends worth watching

A few months ago, before the COVID-19 pandemic broke out, the near-term future of the smartphone seemed obvious. We were moving to foldable devices with the only question being whether these devices would unfold to get to tablet size (Samsung) or fold down to fit better in your pocket (Samsung, Motorola). But with the collapse … continue reading

Analyst View: The coming mobile disruption

There are three technologies that not only will massively impact Smartphone but they are going to have a major impact on PCs as well. They are 5G, Wi-Fi 6, and foldable screens.

Analyst Watch: Will RAZR design cut into Apple’s lead?

Cell phone designs in its first years were incredibly fluid, with only one real constant — users, for whatever reason, hated screen phones.  They were hard to type on, operating systems were a mess, there were no real apps, and they were comparatively expensive.

Analyst View: The advantages of Moto Z

I’ve been carrying the Moto Z from Motorola for several weeks now and I’m really falling in love with the modular aspects of this phone.

Analyst Watch: When smartphones become obsolete

Like all technologies, smartphones are transitory.  They came up from a blending of two-way pagers, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), MP3 Players (like the iPod), and have recently been taking over much of the space once occupied by tablets — which had a surprisingly short run as the “it” product.  We are starting to give wearables … continue reading

Analyst Watch: Picking the strongest product partner

When HP split into HPE and HP Inc. the smart money seemed to be on HPE. That was where the CEO that architected the deal was and were most of the growth seemed to be largely because “everyone” knew that PCs were dead. But HP has been growing the laptop computer and printer segment significantly … continue reading

Analyst View: Motorola’s strategy for a slowing smartphone market

Perhaps it is because Motorola is owned by Lenovo, or perhaps it is simply because there is some cross-pollination between PC and smartphone companies now, but of the smartphone vendors, Motorola is the only one aggressively applying a strategy out of the PC space.
