iPhone 6: The final straw for Android makers eaten alive by the data parasite?

lets look at this in another way..

The article makes some good points, but the argument can be turned on its head.

Why buy a $700 Apple device when a $100 android version will do 99% the same? And if the West's market is saturated with smart phones, where does that leave Apple? Trying to sell expensive hardware into a market like China and India which just cannot support that price point?

Of course Apple will survive, because as has been shown there is a value in the cachet of owning a Apple product, but can it still grow and maintain the same margins?
