Is the iPhone good enough?

18 September 2012

Horace Dediu on the iPhone's value to the market:

Therefore, how to tell whether a product is over-serving a market is one of the most important and frequently asked questions I get asked. [...]

If you have to add features and drop prices at the same time then it’s likely that the market does not value the improvement. [...]

As the product has been improved along these dimensions, sales have increased and prices have held steady (even rising occasionally.)

As per usual the entire post is great. I especially like to see how each of the original iPhone's features (display, storage, ram, camera, cpu, etc) have been improved over the years.
