iPhone vs. the competition

Factors of Competition
Blackberry Pearl Motorola RAZR

iPhone differentiation


Customer segments

Enterprises are unlikely to buy iPhones

Price ~40% higher than Blackberries Blackberries have top-notch push-email

iPhone has features that appeal to mass consumer market However, sales will be gated by network and price

Marketing decisions (I)


Skimming strategy Typically cell phone prices drop rapidly Expect Apple prices to fall slowly


Add functionality, maintain price Versioned iPods for price-sensitive segment

Marketing decisions (II)


Restricted availability to Cingular and Apple stores New iPhones will open channels & drive sales


Cingular iPhone discounts unlikely Expect iPhone voice / data plans

Mobile Device Market

World Sales

Millions of Units


Porters Five Forces

New entrants

Bargaining power of suppliers

Rivalry within industry

Bargaining Power of customers

SWOT Analysis
Style/Brand Sensors User base Rich UI Hype No UMTS First mover

High price / high end

Limited distribution channels Unsafe for corporate use?

Missing features

Migrate people to Apple Port existing apps New social device Distribute iTunes content

Similar devices Highly developed market
