Genuinely interested if you remember the source. I'd like to read about that. Also, what does break even mean in this context? Cost of raw materials to make the app/comparable salary if staying at day job/something else??
Has any other handset maker started using 32gb as a baseline for their premium smartphones and tablets? Plenty of mid/mid-high phones still start at 8gb and the mid-range 5c gives you 16gb as a minimum.
It's amazing how much people complained about free stuff this year. You aren't owed anything! If you don't like the free stuff, don't download it. The Sesame Street Season 43 episode that was given away a couple days ago got its rating hammered (like 4x more 1 stars than any other rating) because people were mad that they didn't get something better for free.

In the Czech Republic all carriers started a price war over the summer and now they have unlimited talk, text and 1-1.5gb of data for between $30-35. Also when you hit your data limit you get throttled down to 2g speeds, not charged more. It's a pretty sweet deal.
