Apple Apple isn't exactly known for catering to the lower end of the market, but so far, it doesn't really seem to have slowed them down much. They are selling more Macs than ever, and especially in the ever-growing notebook market, Apple is very successful. However, with people all worried about possible economic downturn, and with the success of cheap, small laptops (netbooks), people are starting to speculate if Apple will enter the netbook market.

Well for a start you can copy paste on a netbook.

but reasonably the main purpose of the iphone is making call, and optionally be a handy gadget . While the netbooks are targeted to cheap ass like me, that don't need extensive computing or graphics capabilities ( main culprit : photoshop UI and games, flash ). That can get apps for free, devellop apps for free, run java and a little of flash for little effects or because some web dev made flash the standard of the web.

I'm not trying to bash the iphone as it has the most capable browser for the device size (forcing web designer to adapt their page to not so mush screen real estate), made touch screen popular ( while it was struggling with other devices ).

But on the same time I could say the iphone don't appeal me as netbook does with you.
