Page 2 of 2

Just how cheap the Moto X will be is still speculation, but a device selling cheaper than any other smartphone would increase the odds of the gadget catching on in developing countries. This is a market Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is rumored to be interested in cracking by developing iPhones made out of cheaper material. Lowering the production costs would allow the company to sell at a lower price — one that those in developing nations could afford.

A Changing Landscape?

So while Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Samsung continue to duke it out, it may be a surprise upset by Google that really makes the biggest impact on the smartphone market. After all, when a company with a market cap of about $292 billion, such as Google, decides to enter the ring, the competition should be scared, because this battle has just gotten started.
