Was it ever Apple’s goal to have market dominance? Aren’t certain choices: 3 models only, one carrier guaranteed to leave them as not having market dominance. Would Apple have been aware of this from the beginning? Are they not still very profitable in the way they have chosen to compete?
CORRECT. These marketshare stories are all the same:
Mine's bigger than yours is (market share, # of units sold)and carefully ignoring the fact that Apple doesn't give a d@mn about market dominance. Never has, never will.
The others only know how to count number of units sold. They don't care about -what- they're selling.
Apple is mainly concerned about inventing or developing the BEST product available. Some say the coolest; I have tremendous respect for their engineering and industrial design.
Oh, Apple gives marketshare some lip service, but the obvious fact is Apple's business model is based on the high-end of the market, which will never be the winner in terms of raw numbers of units.
These tech writers are idiots. All they can do is count units. But the Apple-haters eat it up, and post such articles with great glee, not realizing how silly they look, gloating about low-margin non-Apple phones just because there are more of them. *sigh*
