    • Noodlez: @michael well it's a pity there is no english article about this topic. IDC was wrong on their MSFT estimates numerous times.

    • domi1kenobi: IDC is about marketshare.. has nothing to do with the price.. sigh
      5/17/13
    • Noodlez: yes, right. and how does it refute IDC's biased estimates? :>

    • domi1kenobi: I'd rather trust IDC then Gartner lol - been in IT for 20 years and Gartner has a track record of being wrong..

    • Noodlez: then do yourself a favor and googletranslate the article above. it's your decision which numbers to trust. certainly i don't trust IDC.
      5/17/13
    • Noodlez: btw can you provide a link for gartner's lack of credibility? would be interesting, as open minded as i try to be.

    • alphaRAJU: People......just go to the Microsoft stress and observe, then go to the BBRY Store......oh wait a minute.

    • alphaRAJU: Microsoft Store, I meant.

    • Noodlez: just go to the google stores and nokia stores and observe... oh wait a minute. amazing how you measure turnarounds.

    • ArZa: alpha: 'Microsoft stress'? . . . Uhm, what would Freud call that?
      5/17/13
    • domi1kenobi: Noodlez: Nokia sells 80% of all Windows Phones. Can you spot the link between them now?

    • Noodlez: Oh Christ, it's him again. If you're referring to that Shop trolling, it's illogical to refer to the question who has retail shops. Nokia
      5/17/13
    • Noodlez: Has none, so alpha points to msft shops, although msft only supplies the OS. If this is his benchmark, where are the Google shops, while
      5/17/13
    • Noodlez: Google being an OS supplier itself and an ATH stock price. Shops = no benchmark.
      5/17/13
    • Noodlez: Msft has way more than WP8 in its assets. It's important to understand it's way more than phones. So don't feel butthurt and stop trolling.

    • domi1kenobi: Noodlez: the IDC stats are ONLY about the smartphone market
