Apple has enough cash to buy all its mobile phone manufacturing rivals bar Samsung

By June 24, 2011Apple, Mobile

According to research out by Asymco Apple has just about enough cash to buy Nokia, RIM, HTC, LG, Motorola and Sony Ericsson.  That is an incredible statistic and testimony to the awesome success that Apple has had with its iPod, iPhone and iPad product ranges.  Regular readers will know that I am not a big fan of their (relatively) closed ecosystem model, but I stand back in admiration of their awesome execution.  Time after time they knock the ball out of the park with great product releases and to my surprise I find I am looking forward to the iPhone 5 coming later in the summer.
