US operators miss benefiting from Huawei’s Nexus 6P & LG’s Nexus 5X signature Android 6 smartphonesOctober 07, 2015Nexus devices are the signature smartphones for each generation of Android and provide operators, developers and the mobile industry the first exposure to Google’s latest innovations. It's also the first time Google has chosen a Chinese brand to make a Nexus device. US telecom operators are notable among major operator groups in choosing not to range this generation of Nexus smartphones. IHS believes this lack of US operator support is because of misplaced fears. US operators should seize the tactical benefit for their customer acquisition volumes from selling these strong Nexus devices.
Microsoft needs a bold Surface Smartphone, not the evolutionary Lumia 950 XLOctober 06, 2015The Lumia 950 and 950XL are the first Windows flagship smartphone models launched using modern hardware for over 18 months. They are the first high end smartphones launched since Microsoft closed the acquisition of Nokia's devices business in Spring 2014. Now, these smartphones are just one part of a wider Microsoft mobile strategy, encompassing Android and iPhone.
Revamped Android Pay will give big boost to US mobile payments as Google takes on AppleSeptember 14, 2015Google has rolled out Android Pay, its second effort in mobile payments to rival Apple Pay.

Apple Conjures More Success With the “Identical” but Innovative iPhone 6SSeptember 08, 2015With the iPhone 6S, Apple has introduced many more innovations than it added with last years' iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Apple has performed the ultimate conjuring trick: Change everything about the iPhone, but make it look almost identical to the old model. As a result, IHS forecasts the magic of the iPhone business will continue to drive Apple.
Google extends Android Wear reach with iPhone compatibilitySeptember 03, 2015This is not the first time that Google’s hardware is compatible with iOS. Google’s experiment with eye-wear, Google Glass, was also compatible with iPhones in addition to Android and offered very similar functionality. This is a big step for the smartwatch industry. To date, iPhone users’ choices of smartwatches were limited...
Barclaycard’s UK wearable payment plans will struggle to compete with Apple PayJuly 01, 2015Barclaycard, the UK card issuer of the Barclays banking group, is relaunching its bPay contactless payments system in July with three new NFC devices: an updated wristband, key fobs and stickers. The service allows users from any bank with a UK-registered Visa or Master debit or credit card to add money to a pre-paid account online, from its mobile app, or set up auto top-up. At launch, payments will be limited to £20 but will rise to £30 in September when UK limits are raised.
EE's new 4GEE Action Cam will only appeal to a niche marketJune 12, 2015EE is not the first company to try and market a camera as an accessory to a mobile consumer. HTC launched its Re camera last year, Sony had its attachable QX series lenses, and GoPro has been making action cameras since 2009. EE is looking to ride the buzz that live streaming apps Periscope and Meerkat have generated. However, the lack of public broadcasting...
Apple Pay launch will kick start UK mobile payments marketJune 09, 2015Apple Pay is coming to UK in July for iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Apple Watch users in over 250,000 locations.

Apple Watch Success Is Critical for the Success of the Smartwatch marketApril 23, 2015Apple's launch approach with Apple Watch is unusual: With a total of 12 variants, and whole range of bands, the permutations are large, especially for an Apple product. And, Apple is choosing to make it available for sale exclusively online initially. Despite these issues, IHS expects the Apple Watch will be the best selling smartwatch of 2015. IHS forecasts Apple will ship...

Samsung Uses Its Innovative Edge to Maintain Premium SpotMarch 01, 2015With a clearly differentiated form factor for this year's flagship, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, Samsung will hope to see a similar leap to the iPhone shipments' 46% year-on-year quarterly jump when Apple offered a new form factor. To succeed, Samsung must be able to ship sufficient volumes, so it is able to offer a fair price with a modest premium.

Impending net neutrality regulation fails to impede record spending on spectrumFebruary 03, 2015AT&T was the largest spender in the recent spectrum auction in the US. 65MHz of spectrum in the AWS band (1700/2100MHz) was auctioned off with AT&T and satellite operator Dish coming away with the bulk of the spectrum. Verizon spent heavily to gain spectrum in important territories, leaving T-Mobile and others to pick up the scraps. The total spend was much larger than in any previous auctions which stands in contrast to operators' warnings that forthcoming net neutrality legislation would deter investment in the industry.Subscribers Only
Apple's record iPhone results prove no mobile market leader's position is ever secureFebruary 02, 2015Apple has overtaken former market leader Microsoft – which includes Nokia's devices unit – to become the second largest manufacturer of mobile handsets in the world. Nokia led the mobile handset market for over a decade but is now pushed out of the top two. Apple's record iPhone results are also entirely premium smartphones while Microsoft's smartphone shipments represent just 21% of its 50 million handset shipments.Subscribers Only

Apple SIM is a Test for Mobile Operators' Main Business ModelOctober 17, 2014Apple SIM threatens to fundamentally change the relationship between mobile operators and users. Making it easy for users to switch carriers and tariffs makes market competition more efficient and places pressure on operator revenues and profitability. With this initial launch, Apple is testing the business model and technology. If successful, Apple has a number of ways it will look to extend the Apple SIM strategy...
