Ah! El sueño de muchos! Cada vez son más fuertes los rumores pero esta noticia lo hace acercarse aún más a la realidad.
After meeting with top Apple brass at an event, RBC Capital Markets’ Mike Abramsky claims that the electronics maker may shake up its existing business model for the iPhone and should easily pass its sales target for 2008, especially once 3G devices become available.
The analyst notes that optimism for the iPhone’s future was buoyed by a gathering late last week which saw Apple’s iPhone marketer Greg Joswiak, chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer, and Mac desktop manager Tom Boger all meet the financial institution.
While mum on details of what was discussed at the event, Abramsky says RBC now has “further conviction” about Apple’s plans and anticipates the Cupertino, Calif.-based firm selling as many as 14 million iPhones during 2008, easily surpassing the official estimate of 10 million units.
The revision comes from a newfound belief that Apple might alter its existing sales strategy to accommodate both carriers and users: where the company has insisted on a fixed price and revenue sharing, it may loosen its restrictions after encountering resistance to its present approach in some areas.
The company “may be planning to allow subsidized pricing, diminishing carrier exclusivity… and supporting global unlocked iphone sales,” Abramsky claims, explaining that Apple could also reduce the revenue it shares from monthly plans or even drop the split entirely to secure some carriers’ support.
