Why the iPhone matters: 8 questions for Horace Dediu

Here’s a brilliant interview.

Here’s his site. His insight and charts are unmatched.

  1. Excellent businessman: He sums up what is needed to grow in one succinct paragraph…
    “Apple will reach 1 billion users by increasing distribution and improving the product in meaningful ways. It will also maintain older products in production and thus offer lower price points. What I don’t know is how soon they will reach all the available markets. The product does depend on high-quality 3G network availability and agreements from operators to be used on their networks. Also their media consumption model depends on the availability of media downloads — something which is very slow to grow internationally.”

    Thank you for a stimulating post 🙂
