Apple: Like iPad Mini, iPhone 6 Will Silence Skeptics
Chris told me he's not a cynic, at least not yet, but color him cautiously optimistic with a hint of "show me."
Intel needs to show us that its living room ambitions are not absolutely absurd. RIM must show investors that we're not just seeing a dead-cat bounce on Blackberry 10 anticipation. Microsoft has to show people it can do a smartphone -- via a partner or solo -- that actually sells.
Apple doesn't have to show us a thing.
Chris is reasonable so I'm not directing the rest of this at him, but, speaking generally, didn't we learn anything from iPad mini? Just about everybody thought the thing was born to lose/destined to fail, especially if it was "expensive." I was one of the lone voices to predict success for a premium-priced, slightly smaller iPad.
The same thinking that put me on the proper path vis-a-vis iPad mini guides my iPhone 6 or iPhone 5S -- whatever they'll call it -- thinking.
Sadly, I need to keep beating this horse: Apple has no competition! Other than Samsung's Galaxy, name a smartphone that gets large numbers of people excited.
