Google's Android is eating Apple's lunchPhys.OrgA store employee holds the Apple iPhone 4s (L) and a Samsung Galaxy S3 (R) in Seoul.
The core question for me is midway through this article. Is Apple being out innovated? In the end the Apple brand stands for innovation, so to lose even a tiny bit on that core competition means Apple entire brand is at risk.
This is the innovators' dilemma. How do you keep innovating at a pace that made your brand in the first place when it is easy to fall back into incremental improvements. If I had to bet on open source vs. command and control open source (the Apple Apps are watched like a hawk by Apple) then I choose open source as millions seem to be doing especially in those places that surf the first wave of cool tech (far east).
