Julie McDonald's insight:

Apple operates in the 'premium' phone segment which is falling. In emerging markets smartphones need to be much cheaper. What effect is this having to Apple and their profits? Apple need to make a good profit margin - can they afford to go downmarket? Samsung is about to launch a new Galaxy phone as is HTC - what effect will this also have on Apple? Samsung also have high end and low priced phones so are doing well in emerging markets. The Chinese market is also very competitive, not much room to differentiate.
