2015 in summary: Microsoft continued its transformation into a business school tale of caution, while Apple once again raked in enough money to make Scrooge McDuck's money bin look like a coin jar.
Apple will no doubt sell millions and record yet another massive profit but this year it was Microsoft whose devices excited me most. Surface Pro has really matured and with the launch of the iPad Pro it no longer looks like such an expensive alternative with like for like capacity costing just a fraction more but including a stylus. The Lumia range seems to be in good shape this year too and rumours of a Surface phone next year too. I think Microsoft had the better device launch this year, I wonder if Apple will have an answer to them next year.
I wouldnt buy water in a desert from Microsoft's Nokia even if they were the only vendor. Nokia is the company that sells high-tech censorship technology to oppressive regimes from the middle east to north korea so they can censor speach and find people who speak out againt the government. Nokia, no thank ya.
You do realize that MS only bought their devices division right and Nokia is still a company that has nothing to do with Microsoft . So your complains about nokia in a Apple v Microsoft are off topic .
They are owned by Microsoft as far as I know. The technologies they are selling to these regimes are cell phone and communications technologies which is what I think Microsoft bought. But that is besides the point. What I'm saying is that I won't buy Nokia things (nothing to do with Microsoft).
Castillo is right, Nokia recently sold HERE maps to BMW, Daimler and Audi. It was only their mobile handset division that was sold to Microsoft a while back.
Microsoft without doubt.
