Explain why I can hook up an iPhone to a Mac or Windows box and get all

program to program. This is of course because Apple are in control of
both parts of the puzzle. What is to stop the other guys from doing the
same. This is one of many reasons iPhone sales are doing quite well.

The major difference between the business models (Apple vs Nokia, etc)
is that after the phone sale, Apple has many opportunities for
additional/continued revenue streams, whereas the other phone
manufacturers just hope to control costs (support, warranty).

That difference drives both strategic focus and motivation. It
affects how the manufacturers view their customers.
