Desperate for Innovation & Profit: iPhone Crisis

No doubts about the importance of what PicoP can be.

Better than DLP -- especially when going for smaller and brighter.

Smartphone companies are desperate for innovation -- Apple and all of the other phone companies. (Apple recently made ALL of the profits in smart phones, and enough companies lost money making them that Apple made 105% of the industry's profits.) 

A company that can out-innovate Apple stands to gain hugely, and if Apple is the big innovator, they can continue to enjoy the position they've had in the market.

...the next fantastic new feature.


iPhone bullish: “Apple has recorded an insane mobile phone profit share in the third quarter,” said 9to5Mac, echoing a crush of similar reports that cited a research note from BMO Capital Markets, which estimated that Apple captured 103.6% of total smartphone industry profits, with Samsung a distant second.


iPhone bearish: Then we have recent Apple “innovation crisis” comments from Sharp President Tai Jeng-wu, who is also an executive at Sharp’s parent company Foxconn Technology Group. “We don’t know whether Apple’s OLED iPhones will be a hit, but if Apple doesn’t walk down this path and transform itself, there will be no innovation. It is a crisis but it is also an opportunity,” Tai said to the Japan business daily Nikkei a week ago. Foxconn is a contract manufacturer of Apple’s phones and Sharp has been supplier of displays to Apple.
