• Where the CDMA iPhone goes next

    After the U.S (with Verizon) and South Korea, Apple is likely to target China, India and Japan

    The iPhone built around the CDMA protocol that Apple (AAPL) launched in February went first to Verizon (VZ).

    That made sense, since Verizon Wireless, with 94 million customers, represents the world largest market for CDMA mobile phones.

    But as J.P. Morgan's Mark Moskowitz points out in a note to clients issued Tuesday, Verizon's is not the MORE

  • Piper Jaffray: Apple's earnings set to grow 25%-30% per year through 2015

    The key, says Gene Munster, is the iPhone's addressable subscriber base

    Apple's (AAPL) shares have dropped $24.52 (6.8%) in the past three trading days for reasons that have nothing to do with the company's underlying business. In a note to clients issued Wednesday, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster tries to bring the subject back to Apple's fundamentals.

    Most investors, he writes, believe Apple's earnings growth will slow to 15%-20% in 2012, and that's MORE

  • How Dell conquered India

    The U.S. computer maker got serious in India only a few years ago -- and then proceeded to thrash HP and everyone else. Now India is Dell's fastest-growing market, with 55% growth.

    By Anurag Prasad, contributor

    In the U.S., Dell originally became a market leader through its online and direct made-to-order sales model. When the computer maker decided to enter India, however, it needed a change of strategy.

    In the B.D. era -- MORE

  • BlackBerry under siege

    Research in Motion's biggest assets face enemy fire: one by foreign governments demanding more control, the other by cutting-edge tech.

    Saudi Arabia and the app economy -- the two don't usually have much in common. But recently they've taken to delivering a joint beating to RIM. And it's been painful to watch, especially when you consider RIM's (RIMM) history as a tech leader. More than a decade ago, the company MORE

  • Going social in India: The rise of Web 2.0 in the developing world

    What does social networking mean in developing economies, where laptops are harder to find and phones are often for texting, not browsing?

    Over lunch this week, I put that question to Vineet Nayar. Besides being CEO of India-based outsourcing giant HCL Technologies, Nayar is an avid observer of the Internet's effect on global business and culture. His answer was thought provoking: We think too narrowly if we look only at services MORE

  • iPhone disconnects in India

    India may have the world's fastest growing wireless market, but Apple (AAPL) didn't set its hopes particularly high when it launched the iPhone 3G there in August. It reportedly shipped only 50,000 units to its partners on the subcontinent, with plans to double that number by the end of the year.

    If so, those partners may have a lot of unsold iPhones on their hands come January. According to a long postmortem MORE

  • Unlocked iPhones: $471 in China, $625 in Turkey

    Hats off to Silicon Alley Insider for their continued coverage of the overseas iPhone market.

    Last week, Henry Blodget plucked a pseudonymous post from a New York Times comment stream and re-published what may be the smartest analysis to date of what's driving the extraordinary demand for iPhones overseas, especially in emerging markets (see "Tantrum" here).
