Wale, 

What keeps you indecisive in the smartphone choice?

I have been using Nokia for a while, i also got Blackberry but unused often anyway. At the minute still meditating on which to grab next it could either Samsung or iPhone.

Wale, 

I bet you are going to have a Nokia phone for a long time. If one thing is good about Nokia is the quality of its hardware.

The fact that, good things only exist in the minds of those who appreciate them, does not necessarily mean majority of consumers do not prefer quality over quantity. No doubt, i have an admiration for Apple's products upon which i'm still sticking to Nokia(phone) in as much as no degradation to its functioning parts.

Dont forget that - the only permanent thing in OEM industry is change, this operates at a very faster rate. No matter what price would become an important factor too no matter the level of quality designs you have out there. If not now but soon.

Wale, 

"Apple's iwatch would try to beat the existing and extreme low price ones. But can it? If yes, how?"

No, I don't think Apple is worried about beating the low prices of other products. That has never been Apple's strategy. Bringing interesting and innovative products is what Apple looks for. The question now is what is Apple going to come up with, with all these other smartphones already in the market. 

Today I saw a demo of the Pebble smartwatch. It left me well unimpressed. So, I thought then that Apple is going to deliver something worth whatever price tag it has.

There's panic amongst the top players in mobile industry and it might continue to affect them one way or another. As innovations emerge on daily basis so also prices drop of electronics devices are creeping in steadily. Surely, Apple's iwatch would try to beat the existing and extreme low price ones. But can it? If yes, how?

Bolaji, 

". . . it cannot underdeliver. Not even when it didn't promise!"

Exactly. I believe Apple has to feel under pressure. Maybe for the first time? If Apple undelivers it might be the first step downhill. This time is better not to rush a product --as it happened with Maps--.

Susan, You identified the Apple mystique and it's still great. It also points to what's ailing Apple today; it cannot underdeliver. Not even when it didn't promise!

Flyingscot, 

Why are you sceptic that Apple can make a successful smartwatch?

I am not convinced even the great Apple will make a truly successful smart watch. However I am usually wrong and it would be interesting to see this new product on the market.  Does anyone have an ideas what the spec of the device will likely be?
