Lead, innovate or assembleThe new role models for OEMs in the post-Android era1. Assemblers: Razor-thin margins10s of assemblers use Android to deliver ready-to-market smartphones with complete service and appsecosystem competing head-to-head with major OEMs. iPhone me-too experience at $100 retail.2. Leaders: unique product experiencesManufacturers who can masterfully integrate hardware + software + services + industrial design into newproduct experiences - from phones and tablets to TVs. Unique product experiences at $500 retail.3. Innovators: incremental innovationThe old top-5 OEM guard. Differentiation is on strong brand, performance, good looks and services.4. Mass producers: catering to developing markets ?Mass producers rely on huge economies of scale to break even at $50, but make up nearly 50% of unit salesin the mobile handset market.

The new world: Innovate or be replacedThe new rules of the handset industry1. Software and hardware is commodity- Software is a loss-leader, monetised by ads (Google), hardware (Apple), content (Amazon), services (RIM)- Software is provided a la carte and pre-integrated by chipset providers (e.g. Qualcomm, MediaTek)2. Points of differentiation rapidly disappearing- Android provides out-of-the-box, complete ecosystems; OEMs compete on equal footing to assemblers3. The search for innovation is onOEMs are search for new models of innovation beyond price, brand, performance and marketing:- communities BlackBerry messaging or facebook deals- made-to-order handsets; copying DELLs PC model- white label services for carriers where OEMs trade service revenues for carrier subsidies- micro-retailing slotting promos across distribution regions and channelsCopyright VisionMobile 2011 16.

The new rules of innovation1. Speed of innovation defined by internet companies, not hardware / networks- Companies from the Internet domain (Apple, Google, Facebook) out-innovate companies from the mobileindustry domain (Nokia, Samsung, Sun) and the networks domain (Vodafone, China Mobile)- Internet players are at top of the food chain and are becoming increasingly assertive- Yet network operators still hold most value (insights and retail channels) in the last mile to the consumer2. Innovation requires new competence and regional presence- California is the center for software and services innovation. Japan/Korea is the center of CE innovation.3. If you cant innovate in software, you will be replaced- The evolutionary game has just accelerated 10-fold.- Players who cannot evolve at software speeds will eventually be replaced by alternatives(oftware has superseded carrier efforts in non-comms user needs, location, billing, discovery, authenticationand mobile termination)Copyright VisionMobile 2011 24.
