 You are kidding me right?  The iPhone 5S, WITHOUT NFC cost $549 with 16GB.  So, you are saying remove the phone bit (which is about $10 or $20 from the BOM), and sell it for $200? 
You mean BlackBerry Pray?  :P
Would you mind explaining why this would happen?  Please make sure it's founded in facts and logic though.
http://www.fcc.gov/document/fcc-adopts-strong-sustainable-rules-protect-open-internetDoes that help?  Or are you looking for the actual Title II law itself?https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/47/201 Exactly which content of what law are you missing?
Yes.  It's called patents.  Intel owns them.  AMD has a license because IBM forced Intel to give it to them.  Cyrix has it for historical reasons.  No one else can make x86 CPUs.  AMD64 CPUs has additional AMD patents on top of it. But this is all moot anyway, the underlying CPU has been a RISC CPU for ages, ever since the Pentium Pro days.  They just hide it with a layer of microcode on top of it. So while it is technically feasible to run a x86 layer/microcode on top of...

Premise is way off base.  Looking at numbers alone, Apple's last quarter jumped up 6 million units.  Xiaomi's units jumped up 12 million units.  Even if all of Apple's increase were to come at the expense of Samsung, that's only a 6 million unit hit against Samsung.  Xiaomi's phones are comparable to Samsung's high end, but priced as a mid end, which is why they're growing so fast.   It is stupid to discount Xiaomi, and worse yet, it appears that profit isn't their...
