Mozillar realease a smart phone prototype out, into an industry which has an oligopoly. The industry has low contestibilty because it involves alot of investment and R&D but mozillar have this money. Great Evaluation for contestibility - depends on which type of firm isw trying to enter the market, how much profit they can re-invest to be dynamically efffiecient and whether they are try to expand there company to emerging markets.
