Oh I wanna get my hands on it for sure. I can't comprehend a phone that big! I could have gone Android after my last Blackberry... but I went iPhone 4S instead. My first iPhone. I like it. Yes... Samsung is trying to build a brand... but they can't force it. Apple began its journey to become one of the biggest consumer electronics brands over 10 years ago with the iPod... and again 5 year ago with the iPhone. Samsung seems impatient. Instead of earning it... they just...
Samsung spent $10,000,000 on this Super Bowl commercial for the Galaxy Note... and the iPhone 3GS will outsell it.
Everyone says they want competition... this is it. Not only is Motorola competing with Apple... they are also competing with every other Android manufacturer. War is hell...
Tell those other companies to make products that people actually want. Don't blame Apple... Geez... Motorola spent more money than they made last quarter... whose fault is that? Motorola's been in the cell phone game for 20 years... Apple for only 5 years.
Apple's profitability means they will be around another day to make great products for us. Other companies in the industry made no profit AT ALL this past quarter.... (Motorola, Sony, etc...) If we shouldn't be cheering for Apple... should we be weeping for those other companies?
@ a few of you... The big takeaway from all this is that Apple spent time and money over 3 years ago developing the iPhone 3GS... and it continues to sell today. People wonder why Apple makes a lot of profit... this is just one example. R&D for the iPhone 3GS was paid off years ago... and now it's Apple budget phone. Other companies spend lots of money releasing new "cheap" phones every week.
Exorbitant amount of money for the iPhone? Oh crap... I got sucked into Slapppy's troll trap!
Exactly. Here is a video explaining Apple's mindset. It's referring to computers, but the overall message applies to Apple's other products as well. Steve Jobs - "Our goal is to make the best personal computers in the world and to make products we are proud to sell and would recommend to our family and friends... there's some stuff in our industry that we wouldn't be proud to ship... we just can't ship junk..."http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...8gnUCWzE#t=34s
Did you accidentally forget your license? Or do you routinely drive without having those physical documents?
There are price breakdowns of many products.... are they routinely challenged?Whenever a new product is available... the guys at iFixIt and iSupply open them up and see what's inside.If you know the parts that are in the device... it's not too hard to find out what those parts cost on the open market.Sure... it's just an estimate... but it's in the ballpark.
