From what I have read Mac OSX will run on the cell.
Apple does has real problems ahead but you missed what is their problem.
Number 1 Cell Linux workstations
Sony (and perhaps others) will build workstations based on
on the Cell. Photoshop and video editing.
Number 2. Xbox PC
It is rumored that one version of the Xbox will come with a hard drive and run MS office, MS owns virtual PC and a port of Longhorn to PowerPC MS is possible in 2007.
PowerPC MS is a modify chip and MS has tried to get Intel to give it a royalty on chip sales. Would IBM be will to pay MS a royalty on ever Power MS chip sold to Dell and others to run windows.
Just think
Dell Power MS that runs windows and Xbox
selling for under $1000.
MS get a payment for Software
MS get a payment for Hardware
MS get a payment for every game sold
MS makes Money on Office and other Software.
Sony and/or Nintendo pulls a Sega and drops hardware and becomes a software marker.
Bill Gates is in Heaven and is still living on earth.
IBM dominates Chip business.
If you were IBM or MS would you consider this path.

How much are you willing to pay for a new smartphone?
I'll pay $1.5K or more for the latest iPhone or Galaxy flagship phone.
I want the latest model, but I can't see paying more than $1K for a phone.
I'm content to buy a slightly older model in the $500 - $750 range.
I don't need an iPhone or Galaxy. I can find a really good phone for $350 or less.
Phone prices are ridiculous. I won't pay more than $100.
I don't have or want a smartphone.
