Well, I got stuck in quite a time warp with this one. From this description I much prefer the Fonepad
"His proposed options include removing the rear camera, reducing internal storage to 8 gigabytes, simplifying production of the metal casing, or using a more advanced process to build the A5 processor." The Mini already uses near enough the lowest resolution screen available and the old, even cheaper chipset. Just making the price competitive is what will be needed. As to short supply, well you have short supply to both create hype and cover over supply risk.
"Learn More About In-App Purchases" Yeh, so as to 'leave us kids alone'. But one does wonder if kids really do want to spend $99 a time on those purchases. Suckering adults is obviously well accepted, but using their kids to do it has villainous undertones.
The problem for Apple is that all their stuff is 'non web' and thus more obscure by nature.   They really need to give some commitment to the web.
Google still believes in the web. At least for now.
Britain's regulator tries to help enterprise. So they have avoided forcing networks to switch off the $5 per minute phone numbers by default, despite 99% of the public as likely as not happier with it that way. Again its passwords, with the child clicking yes to "Services that cost you money".
Crossed swords really. Google's strategy is very much the web plus apps, whereas Apple's is apps plus the web.
I still figure they will transition to Intel. Yet there are quite high risks for both Intel and TSMC dedicating themselves to Apple.   Just slightly below that, they might just go with Quallcom+TSMC. No one knows what percentage of the Samsung Exynos like SOCs rely on Samsung knowledge.      As far as I know Quallcom's Krait uses near the exact same licensed ARM design so that path is a very fast option. There are more than 2 licensees of that special but...
Even the Galaxy Grand at over $300 is a heck of a lot of money in India.
There is only one priority when it comes to moving, and that is the cost/profit ratio. The exact same can be said for the long term move from Google maps to IOS maps. The use of a multitude is screen suppliers is also about cost and supply. You can also bet that the rumoured handout to Sharp helped guarantee an incredible cost/quality ration. Reading into those Samsung rumours, costs got cut by as much as 50%
