I dont think that BlackBerry should compete with Apple and Samsung head on but that they should rather fix on targeting their phones to businessmen and people who type a lot because of their USP which is the keyboard that enables rapid# typing.

nokia owns 80 percent of the windows 8 phone market , however windows 8 is the least popular of phone operating systems , and i believe this limits there share of customers in the overall smartphone market .

it would certainly be good for samsung to have there own operating system and not depend on android , however , it is most likely that it would take time for customers to get used to the new operating system on samsung , and it wouold need to have acsess to all the apps available on android devices.
Lena Ivkina's comment, April 15, 2013 4:06 AM
I think us sung will be fine as long as they can develop an operating system which will be easy to adapt to for their users which probably means that it will have to be pretty similar to android
