Not just the Asian market...http://www.canalys.com/chart/index.html#display-324And who are these phablet buyers and what do they do with them?http://www.flurry.com/blog/flurry-insights/tides-turn-phablet%E2%80%99s-popularity#.VBcMy4CSxuC
I recall where Jobs admitted Apple made a mistake (ie Mobile Me) but cannot think of an instance of Mr Jobs personally and publicly admitting to a mistake. He didn't really have that type of personality to publicly accept fault IMHO, tho I'd imagine he did so in private on a few occasions. We all do that (hopefully).

With 1.3B people, nearly 20% of the entire world's population, even if only 10 percent can rationally afford an $800 smartphone it's still a massive market.By the way I've no idea where the AI author got his supposed average Chinese gray market prices from :"Currently, the iPhone 6 is selling for about $1,900, while the iPhone 6 Plus is said to be going for around $3,250 U.S." Other sources put the price for the 6 in the $1500 range and the 6+ at $2400, tho the premium...
