I was reading this. An interesting read, but I couldn’t stop thinking: what if Apple starts building phones?
Apple is able to build a simple user interface in a modern stylish package. So maybe they are able to build a great mobile phone. Who knows?
Anyways, I think this is spot on:
The iPod/iTunes system will move into a niche with Macintosh computers because Steve Jobs has again stuck with closed architecture and total control. This will happen quickly because mobile phones are being turned over about every year.
It will be interesting… those years to come 🙂
