Apple's third quarter was light relative to estimates and the outlook fell short too. Is Apple facing a slowing global economy or a big pause ahead of an iPhone 5?
Don't look now but smartphone prices are starting to creep higher. This strategy is going to be tested amid a weakening economy and an iPhone 5 that may sell at $199.99.
From Android outselling Apple's iPhone to the success of Linux and Wikipedia, all are examples of peer-to-peer (P2P) production. According to Belgian theorist Michel Bauwens these new internet-enabled models will transform society, leading to what he calls a P2P political economy.
According to recent reports, Apple's iPad and iPhone are keeping Japan's machining industry afloat — one of the leaders in its economy in the quarter — as well as dominating the touch screen market.
Apple's iPhone brought an entire mobile economy along for the ride with its App Store. Now mobile apps are everywhere as multiple platforms including Google's Android, RIM's BlackBerry, Nokia's Symbian and Microsoft's Windows Phone systems play catch up. To win the app game, mobile players need to keep developers happy, make them money and delight customers.
When the iPhone was launched, the economy was such that people would be willing to pay whatever Apple asked for the latest shiny bauble. It seems that Apple isn't willing to make the same gamble with the Apple Tablet/iPad.
Before all the hullabaloo about Apple's new iPhone 3GS, the company announced a refresh of the entire Macbook lineup, with added features and cheaper price tags. That's big news in this economy.
Right at the end of 2008, Michael Arrington posted some info from his sources on a rumored large form Apple iPod touch/table for sometime in 2009. There is now some information available on an Apple patent for a large display device. Even with these pieces of information and hopes of the Apple faithful, I am highly skeptical of Apple ever releasing an Apple tablet/large display iPod. The iPod touch is already priced at $299 and $399 and the original iPhone (unsubsidized) was priced at US$599 so an Apple tablet would easily be priced at $700+ I am sure. In today's economy that is an unreasonable figure when small form notebooks with actual keyboards can be used to do the same thing for $300.
