Sadly ifan enjoy the most for resell their iproducts.. Over so many years, none of iproducts is a dud.. All have good sales.

It lead to consumer thinking nothing can go wrong when u spend on apple. Not an easy feat. Gd job

If you can't afford Mercedes (read Apple) buy Hyundai (read Samsung) with bigger and more powerful engine (read bigger screen and more powerful processor). Be happy about it and don’t cry only because Mercedes (read Apple) is expensive! End of story!

The iPhone is cheaper to make but sells for more, so naives like you pay Mercedes prices for a Hyundai :-) And by the way I'm a Mercedes driver and I can assure you that the iPhone is not a Mercedes and I will never buy this cheap gadget.

This growth is not comparable with the previous quarters. Apple has entered new markets (countries) and also the smartphone category is growing which basically means everyone in the category has sales growth. Lets compare their percentage growth with the Industry and Smartphone Segment Growth Percentage.

An analysis should be done on same markets which the iP4s was selling and compare the growth. This will give us an idea as to compare. eg sales in US, UK, EU, Korea, Japan, China, RSA.

The best thing would be to look at whats Samsung, Nokia. LG and HTC's trends are like. Then we can commment as to the achievement of Apple.
