Jean-Louis Gassée, for the Guardian:
Remember netbooks? When Apple was too greedy and stupid to make a truly low-cost Macintosh? Here we go again: Apple refuses to make a genuinely affordable iPhone. There will be consequences – similar to what happened when the Mac refused to join netbooks circling the drain.
Or consider the iPad Mini: a $329 product going up against the $199 competition. That seemed to work out alright for them.
