As Apple continues to find ways to ward off the competition, in actuality, Morgan Stanley analysts believe that Apple actually has a two to three-year lead over its rivals, according to Cult of Mac.
Utilizing a 92-slide presentation, 27 Morgan Stanley analysts presented a seminar on "The Mobile Internet" with the stars being Apple and their users. "Apple has a two or three-year lead," analyst Katy Huberty told reporters who were gathered at the conference call. Apple's 57 million iPhones, 100,000 App Store entries and 200 million iTunes customers have contributed to that head start.
One of the graphs during the slide show showed just how astronomical the adoption rate of Apple's environment has been, especially with the iPhone and iPod Touch. Apple required a mere nine quarters from June 2007 to reach 57 million users.
Even though they only account for seventeen percent of smartphones, iPhone and iPod Touch users make up sixty-five percent of global mobile browsers and and fifty percent of mobile app users, according to the firm.
