Is Apple's iPhone a Losing Proposition?

In the long run, can the iPhone survive against Google's low-cost, flexible Android strategy? In developing markets (most of the world), it appears that Android has a distinct advantage:

Fat margins squeeze Apple against Android

Re: Is Apple's iPhone a Losing Proposition?

Remember the last time that Steve Jobs was not at the helm? Bill Gates had to bail them out to keep the competition. Steve may not have been all that he was portrayed as, but he did lend the Wow! factor to Apple.

Well, who knows, things change so fast these days that the both the iPhone and Android may be history next year.

One can only guess, a lot can happen. But I would be suprised if windows didn't grow its marketshare some over the upcoming 2-3 years.

Re: Is Apple's iPhone a Losing Proposition?

@birdwatcher Lot of things against android just disapeared from your post.I think you have your opinions and as long the post doesn't really breach forum rules I guess you are free to post.

Just becoz android is using linux doesn't mean you can't post anything against android here.

Hmmm. Maybe so, but flamebait is flamebait, and I agree with birdwatcher's decision and action.

I think MS have the resources to fight and do something like this. I mean, they can splurge money all over the place marketing their stuff and people (some) do like MS products ....

Has everyone forgotten the future market-stormer, Tizen?
