12th Reason Why Windows Phone will overtake Android in 3 years
So, the news is Apple awarded $1bn in damages from Samsung in US court.
Apple wins … Samsung loses … Google loses … all other Android phone maker loses … customer loses and … Microsoft wins.
Why is it a win for Microsoft?
The reason is obvious – any hit on Android will open a window for Windows Phone 8!
Samsung will be forced to look at alternative to Android … what else is the except Windows 8 phone?
Other Android manufacturer (except Motorola) would also look around … and only find Windows 8 phone.
BTW: Here are the 11 other Reasons Why Windows Phone will overtake Android in Next 3 Years.
Both Google and Microsoft have copied Apple
Google copied the look and feel but had a completely different business model – they got sued and lost.
Microsoft is trying to copy the business model but they have a completely different look and feel – they cannot be sued.
Would Samsung have lost the case so badly had it been a US based company instead of being a South Korean company?
In the 90′, in a similar case against against Microsoft … Apple did not win!
