Apple’s Product Line Versus That Of Samsung’s

Apple presently sells three variants of the iPhone, the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and the free iPhone 3GS. That’s one up from their last year’s product line up which featured just two models.

How many phone models does Samsung, the world’s top smartphone vendor, presently sell in the U.S.? 134!

Their lineup includes flip phones, Android phones, WP7 devices, Bada OS based phones and a lot more.

Have a look at the images below to know the difference between the product lineup of the two companies:

As MG Siegler puts it:

“Choice sounds great until you have to choose.”

While at first that statement might seem outrageous, choosing a phone amongst say, a dozen models, does seem a tedious task. Apple’s focus on a few devices means buyers have well defined parameters, on the basis of which they can make a choice.

That doesn’t mean that an extended product lineup isn’t good. In fact, to increase adoption, a wide product lineup is essential, which is why Apple didn’t discard the iPhone 3GS, more than two years after its introduction.
