Never forget this basic axiom of modern life. " Everyone is out to get your money ." One consequence of this is this. " Apple is a hardware company ." See how the two fit together?
Apple wants your money by selling hardware. Despite the growing service group (who wouldn't have much income or profit if Apple didn't have hardware to sell), Apple earns the old-fashioned way. By selling you something. Thanks to this hardware DNA, it's a feature you won't find on a future iPhone.
Nirvana has many meanings and many states, but the one who understands most is buried in the official sense. 1
One can argue that Apple's behalf gardening system where various products, software and services all live in harmony is a state of Nirvana for the company's customers. Maybe so, maybe not, but a version of Nirvana that caught both eye and novelty is the so-called Nirvana phone.
A Nirvana Phone concept refers to a smartphone that can be docked with external displays and keyboards to create an alternate desktop or laptop computer system. This is not a particular type of phone or software, but it defines a new category of mobile device with the option beyond a regular smartphone computer.
Wait. What? It actually sounds like a very cool idea.
NirvanaPhone provides the processor, storage media, display adapter, communication channels and operating system. The docking station provides power and connection. To be useful, NirvanaPhone differs from a single smartphone by having significant processing power, high-resolution video output, plus keyboard and mouse input. A smartphone is generally accepted as a device that has both mobile phone function and an operating system that can run applications such as email, web browser, media player and personal organizer.
If I understand the concept correctly, it means I could sit down at a desk with my iPhone plugged into a small dock connected to a keyboard and mouse screen. In other words, it would be akin to a Mac in your pocket, where iPhone acts as the only device I need to run most Mac or PC features.
Great idea, right? Instead of owning a Mac or two, plus an iPad, I can only get along with using an iPhone as a smartphone, and connecting it to a docking station connected to a monitor, and it becomes my desktop computer.
It will never happen.
Wait. Allow me to fix it. It will never happen on Apple . It has already happened in the Windows world with HP's Windows Continuum-enabled Elite x3 and a Windows phone.
Continue means the phone becomes the primary mobile device and a desktop device since it runs Office, email, browsers and many other applications. What don't you think of this idea?
Well, there are some warnings.
First, it requires a Windows phone. It's getting out in the wild, so it's clear Microsoft is desperate to get Windows phone sales moving north toward southern directions in recent years, and tethering it to a screen, keyboard, and mouse makes the Windows ownership suggestion more tempting.
Secondly, it also means that you may not buy a genuine Windows PC, instead of relying on a Windows phone, but it's probably OK for Microsoft as the company makes money in both ways. And right now it doesn't make much money on Windows phones.
If an iPhone had this type of Continuum built in, I could connect it to a dock and have it connected to a monitor, Bluetooth keyboard and mouse, and might not need a Mac. Or, even an iPad. See how much money Apple's customers can save. And that's exactly why Apple will never build a Nirvana phone.
Apple sells hardware and will do everything it can to design, build and sell more hardware to its loyal to fanatic
fan base customer base.
