Amy Worrall’s concept for how Apple can implement app trials on iOS looks great and I’m surprised Apple hasn’t done this already.
Microsoft’s new Windows Phone ad fun, but makes no compelling reason for iPhone or Galaxy users to switch to a much lacking platform.
“More photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera.”
Of that 55.6%, 2 million were iPhone 5s and 2 million were made up of iPhone 4 and 4S sales. It will be interesting to see if Apple will dominiate sales on all four major carriers in the US now that T-Mobile also carries the iPhone.
I can’t remember ever seeing a line at a T-mobile store, this might be the first and all it took was carry the iPhone.
The newly announced HTC One looks stunning. They’ve taken lots of cues from the iPhone and have created a very compelling offering. This is the first time I have been genuinely excited about an Android phone.
In a market that was once dominated by domestic manufactures, and in some ways it still is, Apple is now king.
This is not only for smartphones, but all mobile phones!
Apple’s iPhone is certainly not experiencing slowing demand in the US.
Eric Mack writing utter crap for CNET:
Just to be clear on what I’m saying, my best educated guesses are that we will see a new iPhone this summer, and it will be an iPhone 5S with mostly iterative updates, a choice of colors, and perhaps the lower-cost model of the latest rumors. But the real question is: then what?
My gut tells me the iPhone as we know it will be done at that point. I have a hunch there will never be an iPhone 6, because Apple will be forced to move into a significantly different form factor to keep people interested and compete with the movement toward bigger phablet-like thingies and emerging wearable electronics (lots of us have fat thumbs, after all). Or, there will be an iPhone 6 and it will disappoint.
The iPhone 5 is on pace to succeed the iPhone 4S as a the best selling smartphone of all time and they continue to own 70-75% of the industry’s profits, I think Apple is doing just fine.
Expected! What’s surprising is how orderly Apple was able to make those two million sales this time around.
This is huge and I have been lobbying for this ever since I returned from living abroad. Most parts of the world operated using this model, US being the exception. We pay a crap-ton to use our phone and that’s because there are heavy subsidies baked into our monthly plans and they don’t go away after we have satisfied our contract, they stay! This model is broken and is doing nothing but making the telecoms rich for no reason. It’s going to be hard for T-mobile to get customers to fork over the large upfront cost for a phone and financing will play a big part in making this model successful. I hope this works and I’ll gladly switch over once they get their LTE up and running.
