If the argument goes that Samsung possess irreplaceable engineers that can make the best screens, then surely offering those engineers well paid jobs with Apple is a good use of the 80 BILLION DOLLARS Apple has. Maybe phase two of Tim Cooks component supply plan is to buy up the human talent. Whilst it is true LG and other suppliers also have tablet products, they don't seem to flout the relationship as much as Samsung. But, if you tempted the engineering talent...
There seems something uncomfortable about outsourcing your screen production to a competitor. Yes, Samsung get paid for the screens, but if they deliberately delayed supply by inventing false production issues, causing iPad 3 to be late, might it not be tempting to launch the Galaxy Tab 3 to take advantage -or at the very least use Apple's work as R&D for your own tablet screens? This is a dysfunctional relationship. The sooner Apple spend some of their cash pile on...
Hello? Apple? There is a world outside the USA, you know, and we buy a lot of your products. Any chance of some Euro or Asia centric content? Football (soccer) the world game, BBC World Service etc.
Those who can, do. Those who can't, copy. Do no evil.
Meanwhile, in related news... Android users with buyers remorse could soon be aided by a Web-based back door that would allow a hacker to check the status of their malware remotely..
Will.....?? Become.....?? More.....?? Competitive? Way waay too little too late. Any serious contender needs to bring something different and compelling to the market in the next quarter. Or else they'll be going up against iPad 3.
This could be a big win for HP. HP could strike deals with HTC and others to license webOS In return for closing their handset business. HP seem to be realistic in their tablet aims and prepared to take a loss short term to gain share. Apple would only worry if Amazon joined a HP & HTC alliance, as then the proposition is complete. If the Amazon tablet turned out to be webOS, wouldn't that be interesting. An Amazon/Android/Motorola tablet is considered more likely, but,...
I bet Samsung don't publish sales figures for the revised Galaxy Tab either.
Mere mortals such as us will never know what really transpired in the boardrooms, and who knew what when. I guess I just believe that if Steve Jobs felt comfortable saying, "And boy, have we patented it!" in the 2007 iPhone keynote, he must have felt pretty justified that Apple was bringing something new to the table.
If the job starts mid August, allowing for training, you'd have to assume the big event is in early September, running for a couple of months until the initial rush dies down. I predict iPhone 5 with iOS 5 and iPod touch 5th gen released globally on Sept. 6th.
