Who Will Build the Next iPhone?
Posted by Bob Warfield on December 22, 2008
There is clearly an opportunity. Nature abhors a monopoly, and the iPhone is swiftly building to one. Every carrier that doesn’t have the iPhone or a real iPhone-killer would give their right arm to get one. Likewise the handset makers are in the same bind.
So who is it going to be? Palm just got another $100M. They have the money. Do they have the vision? There’s a poll on that link and when I looked, the pollers don’t think it’ll be Palm.
Someone will build one, and it’ll be big. It may not unseat the iPhone (avoid that Western “only one must win!” tendency), but it will be very big.
