Mark Reschke thinks Apple just dropped a bomb on Samsung:
Forget about Apple’s courtroom battles with Samsung. On Tuesday Apple launched what can only be described as an all-out nuclear attack on Samsung. Apple has taken the war from a nearly broken court system and onto the consumer battlefield. Apple’s dual combination product launch wasn’t just a shot across Samsung’s bow, it was a devastating blow to Samsung’s front line which is rapidly collapsing.
Samsung’s profits have diminished in the past year or so while Apple’s profits have increased and the company has solidified its perch as the premium brand.
With Apple hammering away at Samsung with iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus along with Apple Watch being announced, coupled with Apple moving semiconductor business away from the Asian tiger, all piled on top of Asian competition blasting away at the low-end, Samsung’s future looks dim. Meanwhile, Apple is moving into a new golden area, being rewarded for their innovative efforts, while Samsung 15 minutes of fame has just been blown away.
Samsung wants to be like Apple so much that their executives cannot sleep at night.
