Unfortunately, 800 million devices is not nearly enough to satisfy the big investors on Wall Street. I don’t exactly know how Apple is going to be able to sell hundreds of millions more devices due to the fact they mostly deal with the high-end of the market. There’s no way they can churn out Android’s numbers for devices. I’m only trying to be realistic about it. It would be like BMW trying to compete in sales numbers with both Kia and Toyota. Some of those Android smartphones and tablets are incredibly low-priced and won’t have much of a useful lifespan.
