Apple to Introduce IPhone 5 September 12
So, the Apple critique continues. Love it or hate it, people will probably be checking for this device. But the move to up the ante in the number of releases per year is tellling, and consumers seem to be optimistic yet wary. What's it mean for Apple? That the company will have to continue to challenge itself in new ways to remain in position. Funny that economics seem to make no impact on new phone releases, though. Hmmmmm......
Apple is reportedly planning to officially introduce its new iPhone on Sept. 12. A September release would be slightly ahead of Apple's established one-iPhone-per-year pace. Slightly larger screen and a smaller dock connector are among the new features that are speculated the new device will have. Another expected feature is NFC technology that would make it easier for shoppers to make payments through their phones. The iPhone is still the most popular handset in the smartphone field, but Google's Android is catching up in terms of sales. Lots of talk on this one.
What Others Are Saying...
I'm looking forward to the next iPhone release but let’s face it: … NFC, better notifications, better processor … is what everyone is doing today. … Apple is falling to follower status. The 4S was absolutely nothing to brag about. ... The last time Apple showed everyone "how it was done" was a few years ago.
Like every other device in the world Apple uses their rivals to build their products. Let's take away Apples orders for Samsung products and see how well Samsung does. … No company manufactures their entire product start to finish
iP4 user here who is likely to get the next iPhone. … The leaked images are meh, but I expect what will get me is the whole package. ... I really do think android phones are winning (dominating) the feature wars... It would be nice to see something that puts the wow back in the iPhone, but sadly I don't expect it this September.
