It’s tacit admission, but admission none the less. Wil Gomez:
When you buy an iPhone you get iOS. It’s hardware and software. When you buy almost any other smartphone you’re going to get a flavor of Android OS, and the hardware will vary dramatically between manufacturers (unfortunately, so does the version of Android supplied with each device).
What should Apple do?
Let’s encourage Apple to build an iPhone that has every feature you could want made available with modular components so that users can add or subtract the functions they want or don’t want? Google has it already. I’m sure that would work better than what we have now.
Uh huh. Sure. People are rushing to buy Google’s new modular smartphone.
