We kicked off the first episode of Analyse Asia with Sameer Singh, author of Tech Thoughts. Our first conversation centers on the mobile ecosystems in Asia, focusing on a few interesting topics: (a) the mobile operating systems in Asia with Apple iOS and Google Android leading the way, and the implications for platforms with small market shares: Blackberry, Windows Phone and Firefox OS, (b) a deep dive into two dominant Asian players: Xiaomi & Micromax, (c) what are their core competencies and competitive advantages that they are able to erode Samsung’s market share in the low and middle markets in Asia?, (d) Samsung’s defense against these players and what does that mean for other OEM players such as HTC and Asus?.

Here are the articles which form the basis for our discussion:
