The Intel + Apple combination can be sufficient to push this: 1) Intel makes it all really cheap, by providing the controllers in their chipsets itself. 2) Apple can push it by (a) bringing it to the market. Apple commanding the majority of the premium market (where peripheral sales are likely to be reasonably high) means that a lot of peripheral makers are going to target this. Consider a scenario where Seagate is selling only USB3 drives, but Western Digital has...
This is really simple folks... 1) Verizon has already had 2 online launches before this. 2) Sales are spread between Apple/Verizon/Best Buy/Walmart 3) The hardcore Apple fans are probably on ATT already 4) People found out about this 1 month ago. They are still waiting to get done with their 2 year contracts to upgrade (even the original iPhone had a 6 month warning, so folks whose contracts were ending in the 6 months preceding the launch could wait for it. For...
Wow...kinda puts Apple's growth in the last 3 years into perspective...
Its not the OS. The fact is that the baseband is completely abstracted away. The network chip has enough wrappers, that no one, outside the people creating the wrappers, cares about which network its actually running on.
More importantly, though, its a better product than Verizon's alternatives...
I agree with this comment. I mean, Verizon is handing out to Droid phones for $200. Assuming they give Motorola (or HTC, or whoever is making them now) 4-500 for each unit, they are still far better off receiving only $200 for an iPhone (which probably costs them around 7-800$).
If there are complaints of that nature, they would be terrificly wrong. That would be like calling Android a walled garden because Amazon has a curated store. iOS isn't a walled garden either (although the iOS application system is) because the internet (represented by the standard technologies its based on) is completely unfettered.
Lol...You nearly got me in trouble at work...
Ahhh... Not used it yet, but it doesn't seem up to the par. That being said, Apple's idea of Beta is very different from Google's idea of Beta (and what people have come to expect of Betas, for that matter). Hopefully the issues will be worked out when it graduates from Beta.
First person I am hearing that from... What is wrong with FaceTime's UI? (Or are you talking about the availability issues, i.e. only on WiFi, etc.?)
