"Does it really matter?"
Altuit has tried unsuccessfully for the past 60 days to purchase an enterprise license. Apple has required our company to submit a D&B rating, then they've asked for our Articles of Incorporation. We've been stuck there for quite awhile. I'm told there is also an interview process where you are grilled about the application you're designing.
We've decided to finally give up and let's just require all agents to use Androids. The requirements application for developing Enterprise apps for Androids are... ZIP. Just develop, compile, and away you go. So, I guess it does matter to some.

> Don't forget, the iphone 4 has not been around for that long… Lots of people who carry contracts on their iphones still have a long time to wait before they would be able to upgrade their device.. Calling the new iPhone '4s' might just turn out to be a very clever decision economically since a lot of people might be 'miffed' that completely new model has appeared and that they are still somewhere in the middle of the term of their contract.
> I think that the new iPhone is excellent, improvements in the processor being used, a new operating system iOS 5, 8 megapixels in the camera, longer battery life, hopefully with the antenna being able to switch between signals, err… perhaps it's a 4G handset ! … Here in the UK the '4s' will go on sale in a few days time at a lower price than the iPhone 4 by £12… the cost of an iPhone 4 has fallen by £ 72…

> Thankfully, this to o a liveCode programmer this should not really matter one iota as Edinburgh provide you with the ability to write apps for both the Apple and Android device offerings ? It's a phone, does it really matter ?

>> Based on the feedback here, and knowing I can't wait another 16 months for Apple to announce a competitive phone, I visited the AT&T store today. As a side note, when Apple first introduced the iPhone 4, Android had only 9% of the smartphone market. Now, only 16 months later, it has passed Apple's 27% with an almost 44% share. Wow! Talk about growth and adoption rate.
>> And regarding Apple's lackluster performance yesterday, even the Apple fans agree:
>> The trend is clear. For a short time, Apple owned the market in Smartphones, but no longer. Apples tablet marketshare has dropped another 20 points over the past year. Apple's incredible designs and features have been copied and many eclipsed by the competition-- and for a lower price. Those who are brand loyal stick with Apple. Those who are value and feature conscious will migrate.
>> Back to AT&T. The salesperson told me how surprised he was to see the many of iPhone users asking the same questions today about Android smartphones. And here's the rub: whether you agree with him, or me, the fact is when I switch to Android, I take a whole lot of folks with me. I have 5 iPhone users on my AT&T plan. I influence many other close relatives and family members who look to me to provide advice on these sort of difficult decisions. I also have quite an active social media profile. I suspect there are also many leading edge consumers who are considering a switch which will affect others similarly.
>> So, my prediction. I believe within 3 years of Jobs not being chairman, iOS devices will be in the 30% marketshare for both tablets and phones OR Apple will begin licensing iOS to other manufacturers.
