For BarCamp Sydney 5 #bcs5
Sorry, no OpenMoko, Maemo, Moblin, Blackberry or WinMobile
Battle of 2 marketing powerhouses? VS
I’m not saying evil empire….
….But others might
Tyranny of Coolat first you are unique…you stand out in the crowd
Tyranny of CoolThen everyone gets into the act So….Where Apple take you go next??? More at the Top: 3GS More at the Bottom: $99 phone 1 million phones sold in 4 days Continue to hook user dependency on eco-system – only iTunes? (or PUSH)
And More Chinese Handsets….
Appstore as revolution or sharecropping? Incredible Innovation ms-dos + download.com rolled into one Micro-payments InApp Payments 52K Apps, 23.4% are free, 67% cost less than $1 and 97% cost less than $10 Average App price $2.85 White Noise generator (just too many applications - a power law will apply to developer wealth – most developers will be poor) Source: 148apps.biz Developers get to be Sharecroppers Apple Margin 30% per app approximately US$45m to date Not seeing too many retiring iPhone developers, Not seeing Exits in the startups Apple Developer NDA Approval Process (Average approval time 7.02 days over last 30 days) Moral Approval Process (No Adult) Credit Card Chargebacks (Developer repays ALL, Apple keeps the margin) "Over the past two months, Apple has blocked our breakthrough video camera app, iVidCam, and our attempts to dialogue with them." A very upset iPhone developer, GP Apps, has gone public with its battle with Apple's legal department, and has informed the press (including NewsWireless). "undocumented API call” – one developer’s experience of Appstore approval process – Apple later release a competitive product (at a price)
SafeAndSurf – rejected for protecting user passwords (AES 128 bit crypto)
OS/App Extensibility Giving the user better UX between the App and the OS On the iPhone – how do I share a Web Page?.....I share the way apple wants me to share On Android – I share the way I want to. (this screenshot is the “share” menu option on my Android browser)
YOUR CHOICE(as developer, entrepreneur and consumer)“90% Of Waking Hours Spent Staring At Glowing Rectangles”The Onion
The Magnificent Cathedral To admire the magnificent architecture and live by the dogma? As designed by the landlord/priests You are granted individuality at the Application level You need a 24 month contract to belong…
Or the chaos and diversity of the bazaar Do we buy our coffee from starbucks? (in Oz, no) Still get Uniformity and Choice at Application Level Bad and Great UX – but custom OS UX is possible We will see Mediocre and Great Form-factors Heterogeneous Everyone can join: Contracts Pre-Paid SIMs Wifi only
