Maybe it's a new trend, maybe the giants are not invulnerable as they seem, but lately it seems like many mistakes are being made by the technology leaders:
Microsoft – Killing the Kin (after achieving poor sales numbers)
Apple – iPhone 4 (OK, I know they are selling well, but hey, the antenna issue is a total fuck-up)
BTW, there are now rumors that the original Droid is nearing end of life too, which is quite faster than I would expect from such a successful model… I guess the tight competition is indeed costly, and old devices just cannot last…
And besides, it seems like the life period of a handheld device these days is much shorter than it used to be 2-3 years ago, don't you think?
