Consumers are dumb and Steve Jobs knows how to take advantage of their stupidity better than anyone, I'll grant him that.
Anonymous, 25 Jul 2010Nokia has no market in developed countries like US and even in EU, samsung outselling nokia in... moreMaybe before you said that USA is the most advance market, you really need to see this: http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/brands/2010/07/att-cto-claims-us-leads-in-mobile-paging-truth-police.html
In the country that more advance than USA, iphone can't sell well. Only in a country that were behind in telecommunication evolution iphone still praise as the best smartphone... if user already learn about smartphone before iphone, then they know iphone is junk.
note: the blog is not mine, it's by the most respected phone analyst.
John, 22 Jul 2010The reason why Nokia profits is less, is b'coz Nokia actually loves their customers. Yes Nokia... moreNokia has no market in developed countries like US and even in EU, samsung outselling nokia in mid range. Nokia is used by mainly second and third world. Comparing nokia to apple is the same as comparing ford to rolls royce. Both can do the work but rolls royce cost more than its manufacturing cost.
Dimi, 23 Jul 2010Strange but no one is concerned that Apple has so huge of a profit! 15,7 billion dollars reven... moreOne question why other manufacturers can't overprice their phone? They are too afraid they will lose iphone. (Everyone likes profit) To date iphone os still the best. Don't tell me android and its music players sux and chokes all the time. Remember how ipod dominate market? Apple forever.
John, 23 Jul 2010Let the sophisticated N8 come and then we'd see what you jealous IFans have got to say. Hey... moreLet's see how N8 has same old problem like 5800 had. 600MHz was 3Gs era. N8 fails with processor alone. Inconsistent UI, laggy, no good apps, lousy web browser (Lousiest among smartphone), copy cat music player, lousy display just a few. Nobody will use 12MP pic camera with mobile's phone lens. Iphone has brilliant backlight illuminator for low light photo. For flash, try focus object in very low light b4 take photos with xenon flash LOL. For audio output, iphone4 is unmatched. Signal problem is only in US bcuz of at&t. Android and Iphones will top smartphone market soon. Nokia is for poor countries like India
I wonder why GSM would say that iphone and Mac sales up...
routers have make a good observation, and post that apple loosing on the market count on iphone.
Let the sophisticated N8 come and then we'd see what you jealous IFans have got to say.
Hey IFans, what are you upto,
Go download the dedicated iPhone 4 Case Program app from the AppStore. Then sign in with your account and choose the case that suits you best. Currently Apple is offering a choice among seven different cases: a black Apple Bumper, Incase Snap Case, Belkin Shield Micra, Griffin Motif, Griffin Reveal, Speck Fitted and Speck PixelSkin HD.
When your doing this, pls dont hold the IPhone 4 the wrong way, else the wifi would drop to ground ZERO and your App would not get downloaded and oh you would not rec your free IBumper. Apple LOVES it's customers, so go grab your free case. Come on, go quickly, before the free bumper run out of stock.
Go go go, aahhleh aahhleh aahhleh.
Just do it now. Lol!!
So now we understand why the App Store has 2000,000.00 Apps. Itz v'coz IPhone users are so dumb, that for everything they need an app. probably there wud be various apps on how to turn on your ph, how to get ur free IBumper, how to hold the ph, how to send a msg, how to make a call, how to end a call, how to flaunt the flawed IPhone 4, etc, etc, the list goes on.
John, 22 Jul 2010The reason why Nokia profits is less, is b'coz Nokia actually loves their customers. Yes Nokia... moreNokia Loves their customers! You must be having a laugh. N97 was a disaster, Nokia never bothered recalling the damn thing. I don't care what company it they all just your money, that's why they are in the business anyway. Stop kidding yourself mate Nokia don't love you, it's your maoney they want.
Nokia simply had to cut prices to compete. Samsung are now officially shipping more mid to low range phones in Europe than Nokia are. The last successful Nseries phone was the N95/N95 8GB everything after's been nothing but junk.
Strange but no one is concerned that Apple has so huge of a profit! 15,7 billion dollars revenue and 3,25 billion dollars profit - wait a minute... does that mean that the price of their products is way higher than it should be? So it turns out that their devices are so expensive not because they are costly to made (advanced technologies and high quality materials) but rather because Apple is making a huge profit.
I don't blame them, I don't blame the people who are buying their products... it seems everybody's happy. Just wondering if Apple fans are aware of that.
Yeah they deserve it..
They are the most competitive and innovative company in the world with ..talking about cool and high-end eelectronic gadgets..
Huahaha.. Nokia profit plunge 40% and you guys compare it to Apple?! Come on.. LOL !! Nokia doesn't have loyal customers like Apple http://www.gpsbusinessnews.com/Nokia-Profit-Plunges-40-amid-CEO-Replacement-Talks_a2381.html
Well this is no surprise despite the antenna issue, their products are still very popular internationally.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010Apple Is One of the Top Largest TECH Companies On the Planet
Its not just MOBILEPHONE company... moreapple just surpassed them after what..........20 years like come on
Win7 sells every 7 seconds
Apple Is One of the Top Largest TECH Companies On the Planet
Its not just MOBILEPHONE company (in may it even surpassed microsoft
even though microsoft is a software based company everyone compared apple crossing microsoft)
nokia apple microsoft sony samsung etc everything are tech companies which improve technologies beyond developing electronics and portable devices
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2010haha no one actually cared about apple's sales...after all those news regarding the reception ... moreHey dude only, 0,5% said they had antenna problems, which I guess were: GSMArena(who, as I saw, hates Apple), Google, and other competitors. Apple is Great so nothing is gonna stop them. GSMArena even the last year wasn't happy about Apple and, it's seen guys, their sales have doubled. The fact that they sell more says that more and more people switch to them, and actually switch to something better.
The reason why Nokia profits is less, is b'coz Nokia actually loves their customers. Yes Nokia really respects their customers and they have proven this by lowering the price of their smartphones, on the other hand, Apple only claims to love their customers, but in reality Apple like ripping of their customer, left/ right/ centre by overcharging them for their FLAWED IPhone4. Apple only believes in making profits, no matter what happens. I understand that any and every cmapny would be very keen on making profits, by as long as they make profit in an honest way, itz ok, but when they overcharge the innocent people with a huge profit for a flawed stuff, that is where the problem comes in.
Apple & IFans shame on you. Yes Shame on IFans, for being so dumb and trusting each and every word that Mr Jobs quotes. Learn something from Nokia.
aai.. dnt u all see.. there is no such thing as bad publicity... & apple is using this publicity to there advantage.. big up for apple.. (give credit were it is due)....
Apple deserve this .... its all its hard work ..giving them results ..lucky too :)
