» The Samsung slump

The Guardian’s Charles Arthur details the bind that Samsung is in.

“It appears that Samsung has been cutting prices in order to maintain market share but has lost market share anyway,” [Radio Free Mobile consultancy’s Richard] Windsor said. “This increasingly looks like beginnings of the vicious cycle which ended the dominance of Ericsson, HTC, Motorola, BlackBerry and Nokia.”

Wait, you mean that cutting prices and racing to the bottom isn’t a winning strategy? That has to be a typo, right?
