    The fact that an interative improvement is touted as a "very big deal" says a lot about just how lowered people's expectations have become in a saturated smartphone market where each successive year brings lesser and lesser major jumps.

    In many ways this was always logical - and inevitable - so it isn't very surprising. But it's easy to see why Google are half-dissing the smartphone as passé - and especially Sergey Bri - because they are just such a fast-moving company, and the business is starting to feel glacial to them, even if still very profitable. (Glacial in terms of development, not volume).

    Incremental? I'm sorry what do you expect, the mobile phone has existed for over a decade and mobile internet for more than 5 years. I think its a very big deal when a manufacturer can simplify their supply chain and deliver better battery life at the same time with a smaller lighter device.
    Sounds like a big deal to me.

    Some people just like typing bitchy comments, laced with their elitist thought process. Reply
