It maybe due to the fact that Apple is close to reaching the quota target and is now making the adjustment.
Munster expected 31 million units. I say at least 35 million based on last year number plus 9 million sales in the last ten days of September.
Agree. How can anybody predict 5c sale as weak when it was only introduced in 9 countries? Plus the big sale will not happen until upcoming holidays.
Inspite of pricey products compared to others, how come Apple is the leading brand in the world? That means there are other factors that attracted people to the brand. If this is true, it can work with China Mobile.
1.after a recount, it was 8,999,999 . Missed by one.
2. Those phones on 2 year contract should not be counted as sold until contract runs out. Rented but not sold yet.
3. Actually it was 6 million. Apple turned the 6 upside down to look like a 9. Brilliant move, TC.
4. 5c plus 5s equals 10 cs not 9.
Bottom line? They tried but failed.
Telling that he was 99& positive about a China Mobile deal announcement that did not happen and left a big mess the next day.
cooler heads will prevail leading to cooperation with its neighbor rather than confrontation, imho.
