iFans forum member kofmasters seems to think that Apple’s release of the iPhone 5C could be a secret weapon that destroys Android. He of course is referring to how Steve Jobs promised to “go thermonuclear war” and do anything to defeat Android, which he considered a stolen product.
While it is obviously a stretch to say that the iPhone 5C could be catastrophic to the success of Android, it will be very interesting to see how the mid-range handset performs in emerging markets like China and India. With a cheaper off-contract price, and wide availability of colors, it could very well be a success. If anything, it will help Apple eat into the market share in regions that Android partners, namely Samsung, have long dominated. Do you agree or disagree?
