Apple stays strong in the U.S. market, still the top OEM


How can Apple maintain that kind of a market share in the US? It is mind-boggling. Elsewhere, they have practically dropped off the map.

Macrumors post: "Apple is worried about larger-screened, lower-priced Android phones, according to an internal document shared today in the ongoing Apple vs. Samsung patent lawsuit (via Re/code). The document, which is from the company's sales department, notes that iPhone growth could drop due to competition from smartphones that have larger screens or lower prices than the iPhone." Give us a larger screen Apple.

I wonder if MS making windows free for 9" and under devices is going to have a effect on anything. Probably more in emerging markets and overseas.
