The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which research analyst Lyons George and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics around the investing world. While the smartphone market itself is constantly growing, the list of companies dominating that market is shockingly stagnant. In today's edition, Lyons and Isaac discuss a new player in Apple and Google's sandbox: Microsoft. From a new mobile operating system designed to leverage Windows 8 technology to a newly introduced tablet intended to reassert the company's cutting-edge image, Mr. Softy just might be the dark in horse in this super-competitive race.

Big tech names might gather a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
