So we weren’t kidding about being busy. Alongside Chartroom and Benchmark, we’ve been up to a third thing: reinventing business research. Over the last couple of months, we’ve been working closely with Horace Dediu of Asymco, Fortune Magazine’s “King of Apple Analysts” and one of the leading analysts of the smartphone market.
Today, we’re launching an interactive, HTML5 (with Flash fallback), fully data-backed, readable-anywhere research report written by Horace and powered by Timetric. (And we throw in a downloadable PDF — even though, of course, they’re now officially retro).
Here’s what we mean by interactive – total smartphone unit sales, per manufacturer:
And here’s a demo video Horace Dediu has put together:
We think it’s the best way to read business research, and we’re really fortunate to be working with such a terrific analyst. We hope you like it! (We think you will.)
PS: if you’re a writer or analyst, and you want to break free from the chains of resellers and huge research factories — or just make money for what you already do for your blog or newspaper — we want to hear from you. We’re looking for great people to work with. Email us now, letting us know what sector you write about. We’re looking forward to meeting you.
