I am writing on behalf of a consulting firm that conducts expert interviews in support of industry-wide studies for many of the world's fortune 1000 companies. We help businesses answer questions by engaging with the world’s most relevant experts. So far we have delivered over 1k studies with input from over 15,000 individuals. We are an authorized zintro partner.
For a current study, we are trying to understand the overall dynamics and trends in the smartphone market and ecosystem in europe and the us. More specifically, we are looking into how new technologies are introduced to the smart phone market. We'd like to look at different approaches, different business models and whether it differs by technology. One focus would be on potential 3d sensor technology. Primary questions are:
1. How should a new component/software/firmware player enter the smartphone market, and how does the smartphone ecosystem impact this?
2. What is the current dynamic of players like apple, samsung, qualcomm, independently of each other?
3. What is the key driver for oems to integrate 3d sensor technology into their smartphones?
The geographical focus is europe and the us at this stage, so we are interested to speak with experts from these markets and with experience at one of the three mentioned companies.
Please note that we are only interested in your personal point of view and expert insight and are not seeking any confidential information.
We are scheduling 60 minute discussions with experts in the first two weeks of january 2019 (deadline is mid-jan) and are happy to offer a flexible eur 200 compensation for each interview. Please note that we are handling the standard zintro fee separately, hence the expert is not involved in paying this.
If you kindly let me know your contact details (email and phone/skype), i could provide more specifics on the study and standard process.

topic and prompt
blackberry ltd. (bbry) unveiled the square-screened passport phone at events around the world today, as chief executive officer john chen tries to win back business users even in the midst of a turnaround.
“when you come out of restructuring, when you come out of financial problems, once you stabilize the company, customers and the market will only respond if you’re innovating again,” chen said in an interview before today’s announcement.
The passport is blackberry’s first major new device introduced globally since chen was named ceo in november, the same day that a planned buyout of the waterloo, ontario-based company collapsed. The passport is geared toward professionals, part of chen’s plan to ditch the company’s flagging smartphone sales among consumers and instead concentrate on higher-margin services for corporations.
