AS AN APPLE afficionado who owns everything that Apple makes (apart from an IMac), I think Samsung is doing well because of the following.
Apple guys build their products so that you end up buying all of them. In other words, when they release a new iPhone, they leave out something that they will put on an iPod. And on the iPod, they leave out something that they will put on the iPad. And on the iPad, they leave out something which they will put on the iPod Nano.
The new IPod Nano has a radio. And a great radio, that can pause and rewind live recordings. Just like the DSTV PVR system. Only problem? It is only on the Nano. None of the other Apple products have a radio, let alone this advanced one. Nano has no camera.
The iPod Touch has video. Very good quality. Only problem? It’s not on the Nano. It used to be on the Nano, but when they incorporated the radio, they removed the video. The Touch also has no camera.
The iPhone has a phone. Which is neither on the Nano or the Touch. It also has a camera, rather poor quality.
The IPad is like a large iPhone. Except that it doesn’t have a phone. Originally (iPad 1) didn’t even have a camera.
The MacBook Pro laptop has all the above. Except the phone. And the radio. And the Camera.
Net result? One has to buy all these to get the full Apple treatment.
Samsung, on the other hand, has everything. Whatever Samsung you buy (whether S2, Galaxy, Galaxy Tab) everything they have is on everything. All devices have everything. So, you buy one, you get the benefit of all their inventions.
Ergo, if one able to afford only one Samsung item, just buy any Samsung.
If you can only afford one Apple item, what do you buy? the Phone? The Tab? The Nano? The only one which may not be a first choice could be the Touch. But arguments can be made for any of the others.
