How Cool must the iPhone 5 be in order to kill the Windows Phone 8 Launch?

Microsoft is set to arrive at new heights this fall with the release of Windows 8. Along with Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 is supposed to finally catch up with Google Android and Apple iOS. The install base of Microsoft is amazing in size. With Windows 8, customers will get a single user interface across PCs, tablets and smartphones. This will drive many Windows users to adopt a Windows Phone 8 device this fall. 

The iPhone 5 could stop or slow the rise of Windows Phone 8 if it is a complete stunner. So far though it does not look like it will. Based on the rumors so far the iPhone 5 will be a solid upgrade from the iPhone 4S, but not a quantum leap. It will have a larger screen, possibly LTE and more horse power

Apple fans will love it, but I do not think it will stop Windows 8 adopters from getting a fitting smartphone to their Windows 8 laptop.

Unless Apple still has a secret we will soon see three smartphone OS that have similar market shares. Both Android and iOS will lose market share when Windows Phone 8 launches.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
