This week we're doing a special best-of edition of Research Rewind, highlighting content and services from Pyramid Research and Heavy Reading that have attracted attention in recent months. If the content and services are new to you, now's your chance to get caught up during these lazy, hazy days of summer (at least in the Northern Hemisphere).
One of the most discussed predictions in recent Pyramid history has been our prediction that Windows Phone will become the leading smartphone OS in the coming years, surpassing Android and all others. Senior Analyst Stela Bokun blogged about the reasons why we expect to see the rise of Windows Phone, and we recently published a lengthy research report on smartphone operating systems to provide even more background and context.
Brazil is one of the most important emerging telecom markets, as illustrated by our recent successful telecom event there, and our recent Country Intelligence Report on Brazil explains why. As a reminder, you can download free excerpts of this and all 60 of Pyramid Research's Country Intelligence Reports, one for each country we cover. There are five-year telecom forecasts for developed and emerging markets around the world.
Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research also have joined forces to launch new 4G Consulting Services. This couldn't be more timely, given the positive review of Verizon's 4G-LTE network from Senior Analyst Gabriel Brown at Heavy Reading and Pyramid's recent report on the push for LTE in Asia-Pacific.
