The Samsung tablets are definitely nice hardware. Very nice and incredible for the price.However, I cannot fathom why anyone would buy an Android based tablet. We complain about ipadOS, but really, Android in a tablet is just… weak. And then there is the way apps work.
maybe because I use an iPad for actual work purposes my view is a little distorted, and most of these tablet buyers are doing so to just watch Netflix. I also suspect this list includes e-readers.
I guess in the other category Samsung I presume.
Which means of course, that Apple (and Samsung) are pretty much the only phones sold at a high margin, which in turn translates into high profit. It isn’t just a mark of volume (well, 14% market share is reasonably popular), but how big a difference there is between costs and wholesale price. And to completely beat out everyone else on margins.In the end, we are all paying for this metric.
Never a viable stand alone model. At best churn in and churn out. Meanwhile, losing licensing revenues from more viable streamers. But, MBA weenies have to jump on the latest bandwagon to climb the greasy pole. As long as they have moved on before the proverbial hits the fan, they get to stay clean.
ps, I doubt at this stage Apple TV+ is a serious competitor. Still some years to go for its business model to be competitive.
