iPhone: Maybe I should wait for the iTablet


  1. A bigger screened iPod Touch like device that's a great browser, great reader, and great remote control AND uses the same dev platform as the current Touch/iPhone and I think you have close to a knock out punch when it comes to total market influence.

    It's not just about the desktop-style OS anymore. It's about the collective numbers of devices. If Apple continues along this path, it's not going to be too much longer before Dell and HP with their "limited" product focus is going to get overwhelmed in numbers by Apple's suite. This in turn will attract more developers and interesting products in a growing ecosystem. Even if Microsoft maintains its lopsided leaded in total desktop OS numbers, it'll be a shock to the OEMs/industry if Apple becomes number one in total device influence.

  2. "Total market/device influence"... Hmmm... Yes, I think I like that term. And definitely, a tablet with iPhone capabilities will be a major step toward getting that.

    BTW, I think I did HP a disservice by not mentioning them. I think they recognize the threat and are taking countermeasures. If they increase their handheld market and keep up the natural input, they could be a player, but it's not the strongest effort.
