    3. 3. The iPhone hype
    4. 4. “ The iPhone is the most sophisticated, outlook-challenging piece of electronics to come along in years. It does so many things so well, and so pleasurably, that you tend to forgive its foibles.” - David Pogue The US technology writer as Apple's iPhone hit US shelves, June 2007
    5. 5. iPhone Introduction <ul><li>First launched in June 07 by AT&T in the USA. </li></ul><ul><li>Europe launch followed </li></ul><ul><ul><li>UK, Germany, France </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Press release September 19 th , launched in November </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Austria launch April 2008 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Aggressive launch with plenty of marketing activities </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Share Your iPhone Story </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Suggest new features </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. The iPhone hype in a nutshell <ul><li>Innovative Multimedia Handset </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Touch screen & Visual Voice Mail </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Lacks 3G connectivity, video capture, push mail </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Revenue contribution for Apple - 6% in 08; 13% in 09 </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>H/S gross margin ~ $ 330 (50%-55%) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The 8GB iPhone gross margin is ~ $140 (~35%-40%) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Unlocked iPhones are biting Apple's profits </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Over 1M iPhones were likely to be sold and unlocked </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Key success factor: Innovative UI </li></ul>iPhone is considered a big success despite lack of 3G capability and other advanced features Disruptive revenue share business model… but operators are still lining up
    7. 7. The iPhone User Experience <ul><li>The best user interfaces are those that bring advanced features within the easy reach of inexperienced users. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iPhone as a Phone </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Calls </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Visual Voicemail </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>SMS </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Photos </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>iPhone as iPod </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Music, Video </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>iPhone as Internet device </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Safari Browser </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mail </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Widgets </li></ul></ul></ul>Bruce Tognazzini Founder of the Apple Human Interface Group “ What strikes me about the iPhone interface in general is that it gives ordinary people access to features that have been the private purview of the young and the geeky. For example, cell phones have long had contact lists, but they were typically difficult to build, maintain, and sync.”

    10. 10. <ul><li>Mobile handsets are becoming a personal device combining various functions such as Wi-Fi and third-party applications. </li></ul>Mobile phones will be treated as consumer electronics Operators will have less incentive to hand out phones Handsets – Market dynamics Operators will tend to subsidize less and focus more on services as handsets become more of a personal device. Vendors will be more involved in marketing, setting up demo booths and even sales showrooms. Handset vendors are becoming more involved in distribution ” Pre-iPhone Latin America: The High-End Handsets Market”, Yankee Group Research, Inc., 2007
    11. 11.

Apple sold 270,000 iPhones in the first 30 hours following its launch on June 29, 2007 and 1.1 million units in the September quarter..” - Charlie Wolf Investment Analyst at Needham & Company, January 2008
    43. 43. M:Metrics: iPhone Hype Holds Up <ul><li>According to M:Metrics, the iPhone is already the most popular device for accessing news and information on the mobile Web: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>85 percent of iPhone users browse the mobile Web </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>30.9 percent of iPhone owners watched mobile TV or video, versus a 4.6 market average, and more than double the rate for all smartphone users. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Usage of social networking is also popular among iPhone users: 49.7 percent accessed a social networking site in January, nearly twelve times the market average. </li></ul></ul>Source: M:Metrics, Inc., Copyright © 2008. Survey of U.S. mobile subscribers. Data based on three-month moving average for period ending 31st January 2008.
    44. 44. Mark Donovan, Senior Analyst, 2008 “ The iPhone has certainly delivered on its hype. Beyond a doubt, this device is compelling consumers to interact with the mobile Web, delivering off-the-charts usage from everything to text messaging to mobile video.”
    45. 45. Mobile Content Consumption *Smartphones include devices running Windows, Symbian, RIM or Apple operating systems. Source: M:Metrics, Inc., Copyright © 2008.

    46. 46. Demographic Composition of iPhone Users <ul><li>M:Metrics revealed the demographic composition of iPhone users, which are similar to the demographics of other smartphone owners. </li></ul><ul><li>They are more likely to be </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Male </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Aged 25-34 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Earn more than $100,000 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Have a college degree </li></ul></ul>
    47. 47. The European Market <ul><li>While the scenes of mild hysteria that greeted the US launch were absent, sales were good. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>T-Mobile Germany sold 10,000 units by 8pm on the day of launch. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>O2 only commented that it sold ‘tens of thousands’ of iPhones. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>René Obermann, CEO of Deutsche Telekom AG stated that i n Germany, T-Mobile had sold 70,000 iPhones with contracts (Jan 2008). </li></ul><ul><li>According to Obermann, the iPhone is helping drive up mobile data usage as much as 30 times higher than on other phones. </li></ul>
    48. 48. René Obermann, CEO of Deutsche Telekom AG, 2008 &quot;iPhone customers retrieve weather reports, stock prices, and YouTube videos from the Internet on the go -- all as a matter of course. &quot;The average Internet usage for an iPhone customer is more than 100 MBytes. This is 30 times the use for our average contract-based consumer customers.&quot;
    49. 49. RBC Market and Financial update <ul><li>European iPhone Momentum Better Than Thought </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Contrary to concerns over a soft European launch, evidence points to solid European iPhone momentum. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Compelling Design Overcomes Flaws. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Despite lacking features demanded by the European market (3G/HSDPA, advanced Bluetooth, high price), iPhone appears to be an early hit with consumers, taken with its compelling design and UI. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Outselling Competitor Smartphones. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>iPhone outsells smartphones at 02, Orange and T-mobile stores (Nokia N95 and E-Series, Samsung BlackJack, LG Prada). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>3G Upside Significant. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Once Apple launches 3G (expected 1H/CY08) and the iPhone in other countries, European iPhone sales appear poised for improvement in demand and momentum. </li></ul></ul>
    50. 50. Charlie Wolf, Needham & Company, 2008 “ The iPhone has redefined the smart phone market …. The real value-creation potential of the iPhone lies in the exclusive distribution deals Apple is signing with carriers. The carriers are skipping their traditional handset subsidies, paying Apple an equivalent amount; and these payments are pure profit. Our forecast has the iPhone capturing 15% of its target market, consisting of carriers who generate high ARPU and view the iPhone as their ticket to subscriber share growth.”
    51. 51. The iPhone in Europe - Key messages <ul><li>The iPhone is a key differentiator </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Exclusivity has given operators a huge amount of press coverage. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Operators must use the opportunity well. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The increased number of consumers at their stores a great opportunity to upsell the iPhone or to sell a different, cheaper option. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Competition will be fierce </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Other operators will think hard about their response to the iPhone. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many will come out with strong mobile data bundles, and pushing handsets with similar functionality. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many will use the iPhone’s premium price as a key differentiator. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>It should stimulate the mobile data market in each country </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The iPhone should have a positive effect for all operators attempting to sell mobile Internet services. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Pricing is likely to be an issue for some consumers. </li></ul>
    52. 52. Market Outlook for Latin America
    53. 53. Latin America: The High-End Handset Market <ul><li>Although the iPhone is not yet officially available in LA, its launch is capturing the attention of the market. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>America Movil officially announced it will distribute the iPhone in LA (May 7, 2008) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The hype surrounding the iPhone shows that users are willing to pay top dollar for a device based on status. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This highlights the gap between consumers’ expenditures on services and what is spent on products in this region. </li></ul></ul>” Pre-iPhone Latin America: The High-End Handsets Market”, Yankee Group Research, Inc., 2007
    54. 54. Low ARPU but Interest In High-End Devices <ul><li>Latin America is considered a low-end market based on ARPU comparisons with other regions. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>NA ARPU is 3.5 times higher than LA. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ARPU in LA is 32% lower than the average global ARPU </li></ul></ul><ul><li>However, an analysis of handset portfolios in Brazil shows a different scenario. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>60% of mobile devices in Brazil are not low-end, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This represents 37% of new handset sales. </li></ul></ul>” Pre-iPhone Latin America: The High-End Handsets Market”, Yankee Group Research, Inc., 2007

    56. 56. High End Handset Market Analysis for LA <ul><li>Market Leaders </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Nokia & Motorola lead the pack with a large portfolio of devices, strong relationship with carriers, high brand awareness. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Nokia allowed Wi-Fi connections and created a content network for its Nseries and Eseries devices. Tentative plans with Telefonica for content distribution on Nokia’s Ovi platform in Latin America. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Motorola also has a complete line of handsets available but it hasn’t gotten the attention of Nokia’s high-end smart phones. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Market Challengers </li></ul><ul><ul><li>LG, Sony Ericsson, Gradiente, Samsung have also been able to harness LA’s mobile boom. For this group retail experience is also a factor, with ample experience in retail electronics. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Enterprise smart phones is a growing sector that has caught the attention of mobile operators. With a monthly ARPU 2.5 times higher than the consumer segment, enterprise plans and accounts are a strategic stronghold for all operators. </li></ul></ul>” Pre-iPhone Latin America: The High-End Handsets Market”, Yankee Group Research, Inc., 2007
