but the real numbers I would like to see if how many phones MSFT actually sold and how many apps were sold. If MSFT is going to get any respect here it will be when they honestly report the number of phones actually sold. The numbers of apps in any particular store number can be skewed in any one of a number of ways. But if MSFT sold only 100,000 phones, it wouldn't matter if they had a million apps in their store, there wouldn't be the numbers of consumers to support the...
The next lawsuit against Apple will be a class action by developers for protecting the privacy of its users too much. The fastest growing department at Apple has got to be its legal department. Neal
All very true but then why provide any numbers at all if it adds no clarity to the situation? Providing the numbers like MSFT did in this manner makes it seem like they have something to hide. If Apple and Google can talk about activations per day, I would have to think MSFT has access to the same numbers but has chosen not to report them. Maybe they feel the numbers are too puny in comparison to otherOS phones to report or maybe they just wanted to report a large number...
To me, it doesn't really matter. As an Apple shareholder, what matters most to me is that Apple continues to sell a ton of these things. I can be insulted all the way to the bank.
If someone want a 7 inch tablet this year, then this is probably the tablet to get. Some will buy because of the size factor and some will buy because it isn't an Apple device. It will have some success due to these factors. It will be interesting to see how much success it will really have. 1 other factor to take into account is upgradeability. Android has been real hit or miss on this. I wonder how easily this tablet will accept future upgrades. This may limit it's...
Looking around, it is hard to get a real good idea about how well the new phone is selling. There are sellouts in Europe but don't how how many phones were made and how many were sold. I would think if it was a really good number that MSFT would have released it in a press release. No stories of long lines, 20 phones to a store make it a difficult situation to really assess without the bean counters coming up with an actual number. I haven't seen many on the street reviews...
That the windows phone Was already on sale in Europe. If the sales had been great, I am sure the news would have been full of stories about this. With some stores only having a couple of units and not selling out, the response would seem to be somewhat tepid. I wonder how sales were at the msft stores. I am also wondering what the first production run was like. The ad campaign for the new phone seems to be kicking into high gear. The ads are cute but don't show how the...
but could it be that Apple couldn't sell enough/build enough to make this profitable and that is why this line is being discontinued? I am sure that for those that committed to this product this announcement is a real pain. I see some thinking that this means that Apple will stop developing for OS X server but I honestly don't see that. Would Apple have come out with their other server products if this was the case? Who was most of Apple's server business with anyway...
I think Apple bought a chinese software gaming company earlier this year and if that is correct, then this might help with the adoption of Apple iOs devices in China. With the launch of the Apple China app store, this should also help Apple get a leg up in China. As to the other markets, one of the strong points of games made for iOs vs the other console games is the cost. I don't mind spending a buck or two(or slightly more on the iPad) for a game. The console games...
Didn't Apple buy a Chinese software gaming company earlier this year? This could tie in with the other story this morning about Apple's threat to nintendo. It would seem that Apple is serious about this market. The next year in China for Apple should be interesting.
