Well...the article says: "Strategy Analytics said the primary reason for slowdown in the smartphone market is a volatile economy, as well as maturing penetration of smartphones among mobile subscribers. In addition, the firm said major operators are tightening their upgrade policies to improve profits."
Steve Jobs - Definitely one of the 20 most influential people in American history.   Not just influential, he was the greatest businessman of the last one hundred years.  To take Apple from a company that was nearly bankrupt to the most valuable in the world is no mean feat.

There you go again.  You are the one who is coming across as stupid.  Like you always do.  Because you just make stuff up !!  I don't recall anybody saying that the iPod, iPhone and iPad were all "half-finished" when first released.  In fact, it was clear to anyone with reasonable intelligence that these Apple products would succeed like crazy.  And they did !!   As for Amazon, their B&W Kindle "eReaders" are fine for the purpose of reading eBooks.  The Kindle Fire was...
WRONG !!   They released a model that was "half-finished" in terms of software, resulting in poor consumer experience.  What most people don't realize is that (other than books and e-books) Amazon has almost no presence outside the U.S. and U.K.
Oh, my!   This from one who has OCPD.  As in "Obsessive Compulsive Posting Disorder!"
