JUST MAKE THEM BIGGER !!! That is it ! Aapl is so dumb that they can;t figure it out. Just make the iphone BIGGER.
this is true. Everyone i know who has a samsung s3 tells me they bought it because of the larger screen. The thing is, not everyone wants a larger brick in their pocket. But then again, a good number do. Particularly teens who watch youtube all day and many over 50 folks who's eyes are starting to fail. Report was just out saying how baby boomers are choosing samsung due to larger screen so they can see better.
Bottom line is apple needs two phones. A 4" and a larger 5". I think the length on the iphone is fine but they need to widen it a bit.
RIMM was successful long after its prime because it was entrenched in the enterprise--the same situation Apple finds itself in today. Apple would have to have RIMM-like lack of innovation combined with an Apple-like competitor to dethrone it, and even then it would take years.
MSFT? Good luck to them. They are having a hell of a time getting developers interested in making apps for their phones. Google has all but said f-off.
Apple can afford, at least for the moment, to be a late adopter. People are buying more iPhones than Galaxies.
This is good for Apple in that it extends their product roadmap, gives them ammo in reserve. Why release a large screen or NFC in 2012 when they can wait a year and have that be their "new" phone? Not great for consumers, but they aren't complaining too loudly yet.
