Market Insights from the Product Marketing Strategy Team

Mobile

  • HTC First, the phone pre-loaded with Facebook Home is experiencing delays in being made available to additional markets than the US, such as the UK and France. Reasons quoted is the poor experience of the app, which is rated on the Google Play Store with 2.3 stars. This comes amid record low earnings in Q1 for HTC, mainly due to delays in launching its flagship device, the HTC One.


  • Samsung announced an event in London for the 20th of June to unveil new devices in the Galaxy and the Ativ lines. In the Galaxy series (Android - based) rumours point to a Mini version of the Galaxy S IV. Due to the records sales of the original Galaxy S IV, it is expected that the lower - end version thereof will do well to capture that segment. The Ativ series is based on the Windows Phone OS and has been opened by the Ativ S, which has been met by moderate reviews.


  • The European Commission has made a series of news on antitrust enquiries, complains and investigations. Regarding Google, the regulator has mentioned they will likely ask the company to improve its proposals around the promotion of goods and services on its search service. On Apple, the authority sent a questionnaire to operators across the region on sales and distribution terms for the company's products.


  • Mary Meeker released her yearly asessment on the development of the Internet.
