 In what way does it limit the device from an end user perspective. And to counter your question about 256mb of RAM, What is wrong with you? Why are you demanding only 4GB. Why not 64GB of RAM? Or 256GB of RAM? Or Gazzillion GB of RAM? Like most things in life, you need to balance out several different consequences. And Apple has decided that 1GB allows them to meet that balance the best. And considering the success they have had (and that their devices have always been...
 Agreed. Qualcomm aint going anywhere. You can't be in the cellphone business and not see some of your money go to Qualcomm. Apple would be stupid, at the very least, to dump Qualcomm based on these comments (even if they don't use Qualcomm CPUs and SoCs, they do use their networking chips, which are the best in the business and will only get better).
 RAM sucks up a lot of power when idle. Adding more RAM than necessary is a surefire way to battery power hell.
He basically just said that his own companies major products provide "zero benefits" to customers.
 You gotta understand Qualcomm's perspective. 5 years ago, Apple wasn't even in the chip business. However, this is pretty much ALL Qualcomm does. The A4/A5 CPUs were a little behind the contemporary processors, but made up for it using the GPU. A6 and variants almost caught up to the contemporary chips. The A7 has taken a leap forward which demonstrates the unique advantages Apple's integration gives it. Something Qualcomm just cannot replicate. Like the guy points out,...
They would not be right based on the information in this article alone. For all you know, the ipad is an even bigger money generator. And the Mac makes even more money (we know both aren't true, but I am talking about the logic of your statement based solely on the information provided in this article).Until we know how much money Apple makes in other business lines, it is impossible to call them a 1 trick pony.
 I can't get over a Blackberry enthusiast complaining about innovation at any other company... (except maybe Moto and the Razr).
Really? What specs? Heck, the Galaxy S4 barely surpassed the year old iPhone5 when it was released a month ago. The iPhone 5s absolutely crushes the latest Androids. Crushes them so bad that Samsung went out and released a press statement Osborning their current product ("Hey, we will have 64 bit soon too!!!").
I think the issue with the media and the "analysts" is basically that Apple is an unconventional company.   Apple has ALWAYS done things differently and not listened to the pack. The analysts wanted a cheap phone, but Apple does not DO cheap. This is netbooks all over again. The only difference is that when the netbooks phase was happening, the Apple CEO was Steve Jobs, and by virtue of his LONG and extremely SUCCESSFUL track record, the analysts knew that only they...
Good points. Yours was probably the only decent response to my comment and brings up a point I did not consider. (The fact that someone managed to read my words and think I was implying the 5c is a failure is crazy. How does 9m phones in 3 days ever mean failure?).I am trying to determine the Apple strategy with the 5c.I speculated that based on the fact that it didn't outsell the 5s in the first week apple either mispriced it (unlikely) or they never wanted it to be the...
