Smartphones, MIDs, and The Smartphone and MIDs OS Arena

Mobile Wireless Data is finally coming of age and mobile wireless subscribers globally are finally able to take meaningful advantage of the high speed packet data transmission capabilities offered by 3rd Generation IMT-2000 radio transmission technologies. The smartphone is playing a key role in enabling this utility. It is no longer just a high end enterprise focused device, but has branched out into the prosumer and consumer segments of the mobile device market and into the mid-tier price category.

This board is intended to be a tightly focused discussion forum and a resource, not a chat room. It is dedicated to intelligent and civil discussion of smartphones and Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs), the competing high-level operating systems (HLOS) that power them, the competing companies that develop and license those HLOS, as well as the semiconductor companies that design and manufacture baseband and application processor ICs providing support for them. Stock quotes, discussions of stock price movements or our personal holdings are beyond this board's focus and are explicitly prohibited here.

All SI members that are interested are invited to post and participate, or lurk and use the board as a resource. Those that do choose to actively participate should be aware that this is not a virtual battlefield where individuals wage war against other participants who favor smartphones manufactured by other than our own favorite branded smartphone OEM and/or those utilizing our favorite OS. Our objective should be to filter "noise" not create it:

Every day I see investors make significant decisions based purely on noise and not good investment fundamentals. rumor, innuendo, chat rooms, whisper numbers, and stock price momentum have replaced strategic planning, fundamental research, discipline, disciplined investment approaches, and risk analysis.
