Quote Of The Day

The new paradigm was a large phone with a multi-touch screen, ‘PC-class’ OS, relative indifference to bandwidth efficiency, target battery life of a day instead of a week, and durability targeted as ‘well, don’t drop it then’. It was also an MVP (no 3G, basic camera, etc, etc). For all these reasons and more the industry laughed at it, but Apple created demand for a $600 phone on a scale that had never existed before and its cousin Android then drove the same model down to much lower prices. The Symbian model, and the feature phone model, didn’t grow to meet the new, expensive challenge – the expensive challenger model took the top of the market at a new, higher price point, and then (incarnated as Android) got cheaper and took the rest.
