Trial docs show Apple worries cheaper Android ‘phabets’ will hurt iPhone sales

Apple’s sales team is genuinely concerned that iPhone growth will slow due to the growing number of Android smartphones with larger screens — at least according to recently released internal documents.
The internal Apple documents, which came to light today during round two of the Apple v. Samsung trial, were prepared by a sales team member for a fiscal 2014 offsite meeting.
Specifically, the documents called out the variety of Android devices with screens larger than the iPhone that cost over $300 and others that are under $300. There was also some concern over the large amount of money Android makers are spending to promote and market their devices.
During the trial, Apple Senior VP Phil Schiller did note that he didn’t agree with the sales team’s assessment — suggesting that others on Apple’s leadership team might not be that threatened by the rise of Android handsets.
