 Nothing new. Carriers have always pushed Android the iWare for one reason or another: they cost more, they can't control the platform, Apple won't let them load them down with crapware . . .  And Apple is squeezing them hard because it wants more sales of iWare to go through the Apple stores. The problem that the carriers have is that people want an iPhone, but they settle for an Android. It's not an ideal situation for them.
 ... and yet hardly any of them ever show up online. Remarkable.
An NFC chip? No, I don't think so.
And it'll probably demand access to your location every time you try to use it.
 That's got to be the worst reason for buying any company. So you think that they should drop $8Billion (and contrary to popular belief, 8bill is a lot of money in anyone's book, including Apple's) on a company that will hang around the company's neck, swallowing resources until they can sell it for a fraction of what they bought it for? When folk press Apple to drop huge amounts of money on companies because everyone else is doing it, they forget one thing: Apple doesn't...
They're sueing … for that? Wow.
 And that's why the results of a single survey shouldn't be examined in isolation. I was working on an application years ago. A survey told us that most of our users wanted more customisations. Our usage stats from the app told us that most of our users had never even accessed the customisations screen to see what was available.  My first thought was that they couldn't find the customisations. We moved it, and then our users wanted to know why were 'complicating' things by...
 Interesting, but I don't think it's a big secret that Apple does market research; the question is how do they interpret the results better than anyone else. The company rolls in staggering revenues with a ridiculously small number of services and products. Samsung boasts similar revenues, but has to do it by throwing everything at the wall. Secondly, I'm not convinced by your assertion that Apple does comparative analysis with competing devices to see where they should...
 Some good points, but I'm not seeing this as something Apple will be looking at.  One thing that you have missed when looking at Apple's strategy is that they focus on consumers and creative professionals. They do not service the needs of nerds. There are just not enough people who play games at this level to make it worth Apple's time. Maybe that will change, but right now, spending that kind of money on something like this not the right way to go.  And the fact that...
 I'm astounded by the number of people who think that Apple builds phones just for them. It's worth bearing in mind that Apple probably has access to a lot more user information than you.  They know which demographics buy lots of apps, music and videos, and which demographics just want two or three apps and bit of occasional surfing.
