Link: The meaning of really cheap Android

Benedict Evans makes an important point that is getting lost in the “Android has blah blah market share, Apple doooomed” derpery that passes for “analysis” these days.

This is science fiction level cool; and yet all the pundits and analysis care about is a fucking horse race.
