‘Unlikely to Become Dominant’

Richard Wray and Bobbie Johnson on the iPhone’s future prospects in The Observer:

With so much now at stake, some experts suggest the iPhone will soon become the most important technology Apple’s empire has produced, even, potentially, eclipsing the computer business that revolutionised our lives in the 1980s. There are an estimated 1bn personal computers in use worldwide, but that many mobile phones are sold every year and for many people their first experience of computing will be through a mobile phone.

What they do not see is that the iPhone is not something different than Apple’s computer business; it is the next step in Apple’s computer business.
