“Forget about Apple’s courtroom battles with Samsung,” Mark Reschke writes for TGAAP. “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.”
“Price and size is likely to make the 4.7″ iPhone the volume selling model, but based on media reviews the 5.5″ iPhone Plus may be a surprisingly solid seller for Apple, carving out chunks of Samsung’s Galaxy Note market share,” Reschke writes. “The high-end smartphones market is the only money making segment in the industry, a space that only Apple and Samsung have been able to derive profitability from. Apple’s all-out assault on Samsung in their only profitable space should have the company’s executives crying themselves to sleep in fear.”
“iPhone 6 and 6 Plus will take pound of flesh from Samsung’s rapidly eroding profitability, but it is Apple’s new smart watch, Apple Watch, that will also stall Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smartwatch sales,” Reschke writes. “The Apple Watch will push many of those who are on the fence over the edge to Apple’s greener pastures, as the wearable device is generations ahead of Samsung’s offerings.”
