What's worse, the largest cellphone market-China find different service (including sale service, maintenance), or lower service than other markets in iPhone; this situation happened on Sony too, what's the result? A serious mistake for Apple company.

@tirlapur,

Nokia had lost it long time before now in Nigeria..

Blackberry and other smartphones are a major cause of that and despite the release of Asha series by Nokia,the market is still never the way it used to be.

I agree with you but also Africa market battle is keenly contested between Samsung and Blackberry. I think winning the emerging markets firms must have good weaponry in their arsenals and cut-through strategy for all classes of people which Samsung is using and deploying tactically.

Even, the giant old IBM not left out of the ongoing largesse there - 2 years back a visit to a friend at IBM's Africa office said IBM's server PCs werent selling as such but now a different sweet and mouth watery stories, its machines are becoming toast in town ahead of others.

Companies like Samsung are gaining more popularity in the market.

@Clairvoyant, I agree with you. A new study by Upstream looked at the preferred mobile brand among adults in Brazil, India, NIgeria and Saudi Arabia and found that Samsung was the most desired brand ahead of Nokia and Apple.

Quite possible, Mr. Roques. Companies like Samsung are gaining more popularity in the market.

I agree, they have that with the iPhone but the "problem" is that its too mainstream (beyond that closed community). I believe they will eventually fade out of that super high market share and get to a more MAC-friendly %.

Good point Mr.Roques, Apple has setup a sort of community people  very closed and fond. This have put in place an incredible strategy for doing that and collecting success. As of today other players haven't reached that point.

Well, a lot more than US$200... but the fact that its selling at that price is a clear evidence of the market competition. I believe an iPhone user is more likely to change to Android than a Mac user to a PC.

@Mr.Roques: it is a good question and I would like to analyze from an additional perspective? How much does it cost an iPhone production, including intangible topic such innovation is?
