Is the iPad Mini demand failure the beginning of the end of Apple’s success?
- The stock is dropping as investors realize Apple may be repeating its “high premium, high margins” mistake it once lost against Microsoft.
- Android is outselling Apple almost 2 to one in mobile phones and approaching in other segments.
- To compete Apple is moving into more variants of products with lower margins to avoid losing market share.
- Perception of quality is everything in maintaining high margins. Even I cant motivate myself to buy an iPad Mini terd and I make a living off of products for them. (I borrow a friends).
WHAT do YOU think? COULD this change Apples consumer perception and in the future less demand? Did Apples Armour just get pierced. The more products it offers the harder it is to maintain a high standard of quality throughout. Sony and all electronics manufactures have eventually found this to be true.
