April 5, 2012
Forrester Research Senior Analyst Sarah Rotman Epps blogs about the release of the Nokia/Microsoft Lumia 900: "The smartphone market is ripe for disruption — Palm is dead, Symbian is sunsetting, RIM is faltering, and every player in the ecosystem (other than Google and Apple) want a third player to wedge between Google and Apple. Windows Phone, led by Nokia, can — and should — be the market disruptor."
