I saw an interview with Steve Jobs, some years ago, in which he makes an analogy between computers, smartphones and tablets. According to him, in a near future personal computers will be as trucks; have iPhones and iPads, as cars. “Some have to use heavier duty trucks,” said Jobs, “but most will use cars, lighter and more versatile.” This phrase of former ceo of Apple hit me like a thunderbolt. Without a doubt, was the highest-placed analogy I’ve ever heard.
The British magazine Stuff, a reference when it comes to technology, elected the Galaxy SIII the gadget of the year. He defeated the iPad, the iPhone, the Nokia 920 and the Nexus 7 to keep the title. But will the device from Samsung really deserved that honor? I think what were the criteria of choice. Maybe the amount of features implemented? Who knows the number of sales of 30 million in a few months? Or the design? No doubt it was an amalgamation of everything.
