Now, why is that going to be so devestating?
1) A lot of current Note users are ex-iPhone users that just wanted a bigger phone and got pissed when Apple kept dropping the ball. They will come running back. No question.
2) Every current Apple user will have to have this better phone.
3) Anybody that can afford it that hasn't already gotten a smartphone will get this phone.
I'm probably going to be getting this phone. I see that now. This will be the greatest phone Apple has ever made. Because it has to be. The one thing that Apple has always had going for it is that perfectly timed product release magic. This is the perfect time for them to release these phones. And the fanboys will houl. But Apple is going to win. I have no doubt in my mind now.
