Cook says there is room for more Apple iPhone growth
posted by Alan F. / Feb 12, 2013, 10:58 AM
Cook pointed out China as one area where the Apple iPhone has made some great strides, but has a long way to go. In other emerging markets, the device faces competition from cheaper Android models, which makes us wonder if Cook's comments are being done to plant the seeds for a cheaper version of the iPhone, expected to be made of plastic and launched this year at a price of $250-$300 off contract.
As long as I stay alive, of course they will... Cupertino here I come :D

I never liked Apple, but what you say is stupid, we need competition in the market, and i hope Apple starts changing a lot ( OS, restrictions, price,..) Then in 5 or 10 years I might consider buying the iphone.

@phonearenauser, as much as I never offense your comment, can you do me a favor for replace your current avatar into healthier one? Please? :p btw, the court case already happen since 90s where Apple sue Microsoft as making a Macintosh clone os... So don't hate because it's their culture... The court case ended after Apple decided to kick Steve jobs out due to several reasons back then... history repeated after Apple appoint him back :(

@wendygarett, why don't you change your avatar as well? Yours isn't very healthy. Also, I see on here where nobody likes you at all. So why dont you try to be a little nicer, or take your a$$ to cupertino where all of the other a$$holes are. Apple is going down b!tch.

Most of what everybody puts out is copied nowadays. Rite now the innovation engine is mostly stalled, save for a few small things from Samsung, popup vid, multi window. We r looking at a few years before revolutionary innovation occurs again. Ted what do u think the next game changer hardware/software wise will be?

Seriously i don't understand apple haters, even if you say something good about apple, they THUMB YOU DOWN, they treat you of a f*g, an iWh*re, an iFanboy, that you are retarted and that you s*uck tim cook's d**k. And even if i like both Android and iOS EQUALLY, when i say that there's something wrong with android ( precisely lack of apps polish or tablet apps ) they tell you you're ignorant or to go F*ck yourself. Really Android fanboys, and apple haters generally are worse than apple fanboys. I never saw a singe comment with more than 10 thumbs up (or even 5) and no thumbs down that tells something good about apple. And when a news comes out about the iPhone, they rush to bash it and get tons of thumbs up, like if they even care. Seriously they also say that "iPhonearena posts too many news about the iPhone" while the iPhone has 362 articles while the S3 has over 400, and we knwo how arly leaks were. Seriously phonearena should do this, they should make seperate sections for every platform, so we know who the fanboys are. And a little message to apple haters : you guys are pathetic, if you think your platform is better than the olther, keep it for you, of you see a news about apple, don't click on it, you hate apple, right? oltherwise, you're just a troll that has no life.

I understand the idea of the post, and there is some truth to it, but it most definitely is not the post of the year. Two requirements would require it to be properly written and punctuated. The way it is written makes it a touch hard to read....... Both sides of the argument have some very mean spirited people. These are phones for crying out loud. It isn't worth getting worked up about.

Fine,lets try this then... I will try to be as unbiased as I can possibly be. I love the build quality of Apple products and sometimes I wish my SGS3 was built with similar materials as an iPhone 4 (Not the 5, that thin cheap aluminium is worst than plastic lol). I also love the amount of quality apps available compared to the Google Play Store, however, what I don't like is that some apps tare being charged a fee while Android gets it for free (eg. Dolphin, Angry Birds, Whatsapp etc). And yes, Apple changed the mobile industry with the first iPhone by being the first smooth and user-friendly touch screen phone and made mobile-broadband mainstream with the iPhone 3GS. However, due credit has been given when these 2 devices were released and Apple should stop living in their past glory and start innovating or at least keep up with it's competition again instead of stalling and giving excuses (eg. Samsung's new Smart Stay/Rotate, Popup Play, Multiwindow, Apple only has Siri, which is still doesn't work right and Apple Maps, their excuse for both these 2 products for being bad is it's in "Beta"). Do they need to have Samsung beat them in build-quality (I imagine a metal built Galaxy SX?) too before they realize they can't keep holding tech back to keep their products "new" within their closed walls? Yes, Apple changed handphones forever with the iPhone, and so did Nicolas Joseph Cugnot with the first steam engine powered car, but do you think we'd get this far with cars if everyone just stalled and not improve on the steam engine car? There, lets see how many hits this gets, I believe this is a fair judgement on Apple (I've already left out some stuff like the endless lawsuits and patent trolling)

A true and fair judgement really...!!! I think I'll use your opinion on my blog. You are so right on your steam engine example and what I think is with Apple's products quality and OS and Samsung's functionality's integration there will be a perfect smartphone. Btw Apple is an old player in this field and it still has much more money in reserves than Samasung, I strongly believe this. And all those people who are saying Apple this Apple that should know that the one who is on CEO post must be someone genius and must have something on mind. Always know that an organisation sometimes have to sacrifice short-time success for long term plans. And besides if thats it, if Apple is losing from their competitors, they can have a come back, they stand very firm on financial grounds. Btw that was a one sided statement. Sincerely I am a iFanboy since I bought iPhone 2G it was something I had never seen. But now at this point I have iPhone 4 I've also seen iPhone and used SGS3 too, and I was really fascinated by the functionality of S3, it really is something and somewhere in the corner of mind I thought of buying S3 but I won't I'm used to Apple's products so much. And Samsung's products are so appreciable, way to go Samsung, its really gonna be an amazing battle and the best part is it is gonna decrease prices down ;) lol
