  • Apple May Lose The Smartphone War To Google [View article]
    It seems to me that those comments which say that Apple is a luxury item, a unique item, a high-end item etc are only proving my point - my point being, that Google's total effort has been to bring the smartphone to the common people. There's a 7 billion strong market out there, and the high price, the hardware-dependence of Apple has made it unable to penetrate that market. Hence, even if, arguably, Apple is the best smartphone there is, it is going to lose the business war, even if it gets brownie points for design and other things. I give it 5 years before it becomes an ultra luxury item that very very rich people pay ugly prices to own. The market, however, will be dominated by Google, IMHO.
