It's hard to believe that they are getting $638/phone...

Of course, the purpose of a corporation is primarily to earn money, and I would submit that it is highly likely that Apple's performance in the smartphone earnings category places them even higher than they are in the smartphone revenue category.

When the smartphone appeared a decade back, Nokia handled it as if it was just another sub-segment under mobile phones. They threw in a more revved up version of their OS, an extra applications processor or two, and termed it a smartphone. But Apple came in looking at smartphones as a new product, and started design on a clean sheet of paper. They started from the customer and user-experience and worked backwards to the phone requirements; as opposed to starting from existing hardware & software and trying to evolve it to meet customer requirements. This comes back to the principle that each company needs to have a group that looks at killing their own product and cash cow. From chipsets to OSes to user-interfaces, this group needs to have a startup mentality and without any preconceived notions of what the design needs to look like. But due to internal divisions and company politics, this is harder to do than imagined.

Wait a minute. In terms of total revenue I agree. But in terms of total units shipped, Nokia is way ahead. But this probably covers all of Nokia's phone line (smart, dumb, cheap, throwaway). What the bare numbers tell me is Apple's iPhones cost a lot more than Nokia's. Where do you think the growth is going to take place? Developing countries. Don't throw Nokia under the bus just yet. Look at what is nipping on Apple's heels too. Androids (but that is through lot's of companies). So take these numbers for what they are worth. Impressive? Yes, but not the whole story.

Apple TV has a ways to go -- perhaps they will invest more in bringing it up to the same standard as other Apple products.

Proprietary isn't their undoing -- Proprietary is the engine that drives those huge profits.

Apple has been doing so good in the mobile segment and has so much cash that i am wondering what will do with it. All their products are highly profitable and in some sense revolutionary. Shouldn't they add more consumer products to their kitty.

This would be one major achievement for apple and I think this would be their peak. I hope Nokia will bring out much bigger and better results in the future.

these are pretty relevant and curious questions. Apple has sure taken 4 years to capture this position. They are still not the largest seller of phones. Apple is not only doing wonder in smartphones but in tablet segment also.

Nokia and Microsoft are planning to release first Windows 7 based Nokia phone in 2011. Please see link below. http://blogs.technet.com/b/microsoft_blog/archive/2011/04/21/one-step-closer-to-the-first-nokia-device-built-on-windows-phone.aspx Apple has caught and been surfing on the top of the wave of mobile Internet. Nokia has been lacking behind even though Nokia starts the concept human technology. I can't wait to see how the partnership with Microsoft pay off to the 2012 revenue of Nokia.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
