With mobile devices and tablets popping up with affordable price tags, this has meant that mobile casino gambling is the fastest growing sector in the gaming world.
With Apple just winning a groundbreaking decision over Samsung regarding patent ownership, this has set the cat among the pigeons in the mobile industry.
Until now Samsung were undisputed heavyweights and being one of the major handset manufacturers but with this latest judgment things could change in a big way.
However the company with the biggest smile besides Apple themselves is undoubtedly Microsoft. The timing could not be better as they are planning on launching their newest Windows Phone soon. With the legal patents being an issue, it might very well be that manufacturers like Samsung might very well look to Microsoft’s Windows Phone as a viable alternative.
Microsoft is in the ideal position to offer Android vendors an alternative option that will not send them to court with the giant Apple. Many phone manufacturers will do well do put money and resources into Windows Phone which will give them the option of not being too dependent on a single operating system.
While it is not considered too polite to gloat a marketing executive for Microsoft, Bill Cox could not contain his joy at the misfortune of Android’s and Samsung and tweeted,” Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now.”
The old saying of “One man’s misfortune is another man’s gain” could not sum up the current situation better for players like Microsoft. It remains to be seen how this legal precedent impacts on the mobile casino sector as many manufacturers will think twice before adapting similar technologies used by Apple.
