This week, a reader sent me this link to an interesting breakdown of just what goes into and comes out of the global iPhone cycle. I love my iPhone, so it almost makes me feel a little guilty for owning one, but I put my phones back into the consumer market when I upgrade, so I’m not all that bad.
Of course, it’s not just iPhones. The overall market for smart phones cycles pretty rapidly these days. It used to be that I’d buy the best phone on the market and wait 3 years for something good enough to make me upgrade. These days, the upgrades seem to be thrust upon us so fast that its hard to keep up. I love advancing technology, but it’s also part of the problem this moving infographic seems to point out.
In any case, here it is for you to check out.
