Branching out iOS
Oh, my first post on a forum.
An interesting thought cam to my mind the other day. A while ago, I read that Jobs was a fan of Sony design and was open to the idea of exporting OSX to Sony Laptops. Rather than exporting OSX, in this mobile age, wouldn't exporting iOS be a good move, for both of them? I'm sure the majority of the people out there would agree, that Sony is right up there with HTC on building sexy phones, and in Sony's case, good tablets too. The Z2 and the Xperia tablets are definitely really good looking products indeed, it is a shame that they don't sell as well as they should. But when you think about it, it wouldn't be that hard to substitute just the OS in a different phone or a tablet. When it boils down to it, they don't have that different hardware. Same-ish buttons and basic form factors. It would be like equivalent to selling iPhone 5C. But better. No necessarily compete with the 5s and iPad air, but def hold it's own just one notch down? In both feature wise and price points. Be good to have a few thoughts and intelligent discussion on the topic I think . . .
