Lastly, we all know Apple is successful and profitable. Today. That doesn't justify charging $100 for $7 worth of memory any more than Android's dominating phone marketshare automatically means it's the superior os for everyone. And it doesn't mean they will continue to see such huge profit margins, especially as their market share dwindles. They've been on this roller coaster before after all.
In UK prices:
The difference between a 16GB iPad4 and a 32GB iPad4 is 80 GBP.
The difference between a 16GB Nexus 10 and a 32GB Nexus 10 is 70 GBP.
Does a difference of 10 pounds mean that Apple is price-gouging but Google isn't? Or is Google price-gouging too?
