Scalado co-founder talks about Nokia purchase and what the team has achieved

Nice read. I love where Nokia is taking the mobile industry to. Their advances has only been mimicked by many companies and they will ,for at least right now, continue to innovate and direct the industry.

I wish Steve Jobs were alive to watch his iPhone get leapfrogged by Nokia and Microsoft from the product perspective. Sure, Apple's profits are still fantastic, but I believe when WP Blue is released Apple will be in the rear view mirror from a sales perspective also.

One could argue that if Steve Jobs were still alive, Apple would still be innovating therefore the leapfrogging of which you speak may have never occurred.

Don't know about that, the iPhone would still have a 3.5" screen as Steve himself said that bigger isn't necessary.

 

He also said that a tablet smaller than 10 inches would need sandpaper to file down your fingertips to use. Hello iPad mini!

To be honest..i doubt if WP BLUE will bring many enhancements to WP8. Don't get me wrong..i have a Lumia 920 and i absolutely love it. But seeing WP7 and WP8, and their excuse for not having a notification center, and many such small yet important improvements, i am guessing they'll run out of time for many such improvements. And that's when I'll run out of patience too. WP is gold, but it needs to be groomed and shaped so that it glitters, as gold that doesn't glitter isn't the gold that i desire. :)

This is more like WP7 to WP7.5 than WP7.5 to WP8.  We can expect significant advances in the OS.  WP7 was totally unusable and only for the fanboys, whereas WP7.5 was actually decent.  Same will be true about WP8 and Blue.  (I hope!)

If Steve jobs alive, Apple even bigger. MS innovative as well, but their slow to adopt is their downfall.

Smart purchase... Now develop some amazing but must-have (not vital) tech, and refuse Google and other Android OEMs licensing. Make the Pro Camera app something that consumers demand day in and day out, heck, let Firefox, BB, Sailfish and Ubuntu license it, but fall silent on iOS/Android.
