But, but, but...
Dear Grasper- I thought you told us we had passed peak Apple already? Presumably that was just a smaller peak in a range of summits, plateaux, cliffs, and other muddled and meretricious mountainous metaphors.
Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Precision Industry Co, has embarked on a hiring spree in Taiwan and will welcome more than 15,000 new workers through its doors during the coming year. More than a million people now work for Hon Hai, which builds iStuff for Apple. The new staff will work in 4G wireless services, cloud computing …
is the carriers' stupidity. At least here in Japan. If you take an IPhone on a 2 years mobile contract, it is about 500yen (~£3) per month cheaper than if you choose Android, - with the exactly same conditions. (They don't offer any windows phones, btw). Japanese carriers also offer generous cash-backs, if you take an IPhone. You could nearly buy a new IPhone from the money I was offered, just this weekend.
No doubt they contracted for huge volumes and got surprised that their fellow carriers did exactly the same. As a result they dump them and the cheapest Android is still much more expensive on a contract than even the IPhone 5s.
I wonder how to call this - war for Apple share? Apple war? Anyway, as long as it lasts there will be enough work for Foxconn, I suppose.
Largely contradicted for the UK here.
It would seem that it is not because you have something that everybody else does too.
Does that make you feel cooler ?
By the way, it is also contradicted for the US here.
So your post is wrong on both counts.
But hey, at least you have one !
