    I'm following this on the tech pages ... and the entire market is crapping their pants. Nobody is even close to positioned to support the market without the Note 7. Huawei is the only one even close. And if that happens, the entire bottom third of the market evaporates, and the top end gets smashed... and China dictates to everyone.

    You can't get there from here.
    What, the market goes crazy if a new model of a cellphone is withdrawn? What killer app did it have that no other cellphone can do?

    It has exactly zero effect on me.

    I support a fleet of 6000 Notes ranging from ver 2 to ver 4. The moment we put any new phone in the field, we immediately get a rash of busted phones .. techs deliberately smashing their phones (unionized) to get the new bling. Happens when we get a new model laptop too. People are stupid.

    They actually jumped the name Note 6 because Apple was ahead of them with the iPhone 7 and they didn't want to appear to be older tech. Windows skipped Win9 because Win8 was so awful they wanted to appear further from it. Similarly Win ME (imho, a falsely maligned OS) ruined the lettered versions idea. XP survived because it managed to convince people it was the eXPert version. Did I say people are stupid? Consumers are stupid. Most people are consumers.
