Re: Shall I be an analyst for the day?
"That said, they have access to far better market research than I do, and their earnings appear to vindicate them."
They at least say that the choices they are making aren't disastrous. But we can't tell if they might be better still with a range of device formats.
I have a broken 4S - bought from fleabay - simply acting as an SMS/iMessage gateway because they couldn't be bothered to support SMS in the SIM equipped iPad (and I prefer to use the iPad for SMS than my phone)
I suppose that makes it a *good* decision on their part...
The 4S won't see upgrades, but since it does absolutely nothing other than act as an SMS relay (with a prepay SIM) I'm not fussed.
If they ever make an iPhone that I am vaguely interested in then they are likely to get another sale - but the current range don't cater to what I want in a phone - at all...
I can't imagine that I'm the only person who has similar requirements/desires - I'm happy to be niche/unusual/odd, but I doubt I'm unique... (I'm not rich enough to be eccentric).
