 Doesn't matter... niche is niche. By the way... the 3.5" iPhone 4 was only selling between 13-14 million at the time of the first Note. Anything over 5" was not considered to be a big market... so it wasn't the "biggest market in tech history".
 I'll take that without hesitation.  [ @pazuzu - I know you're here just to grind everyone's gears, pazuzu, and it's probably just a sport for you, but why not up the ante a bit and take one of these bets. You're not trying to tell me that it would actually affect you if you were wrong, are you? If that's true then hmmmmmmmm... ]
 If you're willing to move the goalposts this far before the watch is sold, I can only guess how far they'll be moved once it's on the market.
 I remember not that long ago seeing AI members poo pooing the Note as being a niche product for selling only 5 million in a quarter (I seem to recall sog35 being one of the people denigrating the Note for selling such low numbers). At least now I know that things have changed and selling 2.5 million per quarter is no longer niche and is now considered a massive amount.
 You're right. I was still stuck on this piece of bs: 
 Exclude China and he's in. Why won't you exclude China?
 So... what would you think if the Apple Watch died after 6 hours?
Keep building 5.5 to 6 inch phones and get rid of the Mini.   [ I originally liked the idea of the iPad Mini... then I got older, lifestyle changed... and now I no longer have need for one. I always liked the Note, just because nothing was offered in that size from Apple. In other words... Apple, if you can make me younger, I will buy a 6 plus ]

 When you read something broadly then there is usually a source for citation. My sources say that watch sales are on the increase after a cyclical decline. http://www.businessoffashion.com/2014/08/will-apples-iwatch-rattle-luxury-watchmakers.html
