- How many iPod Touch computers were given away each year under this program?
- Are students selling these handhelds, or are they using them in tandem with their laptop computers?
- What impact do these machines have on the competitive advantage of the iOS? How much do they help Apple in their competition against Android and other OSs? How much of there is a "lock in" factor because a significant number of apps have been sold?
- Are iOS developers creating apps that can shift/sync fluidly between the iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad? Should Apple encourage developers to create a single "universal" version of their apps to help encourage "lock in" to the iOS platform?
While this program has clearly been effective, I haven't seen any business analysis of what the promotion has accomplished.
