It's not that they can't shipped more devices than Apple, because many oem's can. The question is at what price point and profits. Apple can sell and ship more iPhones if they want to lower their margins and profits, but why? Why should Apple ship more products only to make less money. What no oem's will be able to do is shipped more devices than Apple at the same price point. Why can't people understand this, Apple will not sacrifice their margins for the sake of market shares.
It's a big win for Apple because the EU pretty much confirm platform owners can keep their 30% cut and continue as business as usual. The only part the EU took issue with is something Apple already addressed with their changes to the appstore already. No government is going to dictate to a private company how much their should charge for their platform services no matter how much some folks scream about it.

Why is Apple Insider worried about Apple's growth. As a fan and user, that is the least of my worries. Only stock holders should worry about things like that, and if they have a problem then they should get out of the stock. This is my biggest worry with Tim Cook being in charge because with him in charge, he has shown a tendency to listen to wall street far too often at the expense of us users. Lately Apple have began to be too much about margins and profits at the expense of the users and the experiences. You see it with their inssistance on shipping 16gb models even though they know it kills the user experience for a lot of users. They are many other examples.
