A couple days ago we posted our predictions for 2013, and we admittedly had some pretty crazy ideas (Ballmer deodorant, anyone?) Even we couldn’t come up with something as crazy as Tristan Louis from Forbes. Tristan says that in 2013 the mobile industry will see a big shakeup. The biggest move will involve Nokia, Microsoft, and Huawei, says Tristan.
He predicts that in 2013 Nokia will realize their bet with Windows Phone has failed. Microsoft and Huawei will be the two parties competing to gobble up their mobile division. They will sell their smartphone business to Microsoft, and their telecom interests to Huawei. Analysts say the darndest things, don’t they? We would be very surprised if this prediction came true. RIM is in an arguably worse position than Nokia and they continue to keep on trucking. If this prediction does ever come true it won’t be as quickly as 2013.
What do you think about this lofty prediction?
