Microsoft launched Windows 8 yesterday, and yes…first impressions are cool, although I didn’t work with it the presented features look fresh and new. Windows 8 doesn’t look like the old and outdated Windows anymore! So productwize, Windows 8 can be a winner with an easy to use interface using tiles, has a fast start up (so they say) and is easy to integrate with smartphone and tablets, thanks to the already existing Metro operating system (which has a huge influence on this new Windows version and his integration with smart world).
So how does Apple help Windows to become the ‘new’ market leader (off course they still are, just looking at sales figures). Thanks to tons of pattents Apple has installed on it’s products and features, it’s battling Samsung’s android based tablets and smartphones….and they are winning huge in Europe! Samsung’s devices are to much a look-a-like of the Apple tablets, and Apple button for navigation, according to the European judges. Therefore with a huge competitor out of the picture, Apple helps the late market entry of Windows in smart market operating system….Windows will probably gain huge market shares in no time with this new OS.
With the joint venture of Windows and Nokia we’ll have to wait of there will be a real challenger for iPhone….but for now: everybody who expected Windows to be out of the game, WRONG, they made a big comeback and their future looks bright again….now let’s see what Nokia can do with this new operating system on their phones?!
