Moggy, more and more I get the impression Apple are acting like a bloated monopoly, believing in their own hype and failing to push. Why bother when the money is rolling in? Failing to innovate will be their downfall. This is similar to Microsoft the the 90s. There is also a simile there too by copying other peoples ideas. The huge legal budget they are throwing around globally just serves T stifle innovation so they are not left behind, Just a few months it was highlighted they hadn't really increased the R&D budget that much. Then you get the iPhone 5, though much hyped, didn't really meet expectations by being that little bit taller. Frankly it sucks.
Also another thing. When you can deploy IOS to a legacy device and all the new features, does that not make the new model slightly redundant?
Where the mobile platform does work over Android is that it's patrons are prepared to pay for apps, so the environment is more geared toward innovative development.
I use an iPad 4 by the way and like it for the above reason, but I've never had one before or a tablet. I certainly wouldn't buy an iPhone and happy of the features my superior HTC Android gives me over the 5.
Wish list for the next iPad. Two speakers instead of one. Also Gorilla Glass please.
See how they wheel, bank and glide? Perfect. All in one.
