I decided to spend the whole day trying to do my work only using the GN2. And, to make the challenge more exciting – no recharges!
The key paragraph that Cook must heed:

And don’t think just about that phone. There’s the Galaxy Note 8.0 coming up. It will probably be as much of a whore with accessories as the Galaxy Note II phone. How many things will it be able to do that the iPad Mini can’t? Multi-window capability can be compelling.
Everyone has talked about tablets replacing PCs. But what about phablets replacing PCs — and phones too?
One of these days, Apple is going to be in real trouble.
Microsoft already is.
