The new iPhone 5 is expected to support 4G LTE; and not in just one or two countries, either. Rumors from multiple sources indicate that Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will release a new smartphone with international fast networking features.
Unlike the ‘new’ iPad 3, which had LTE that only worked in a few places, the new smartphone will work in many more—but perhaps not quite all.
The gloves are off in the ever-worsening conflict between smartphone titans Apple and South Korean Samsung, and Demonsys.com is reporting live from the scene.
Did the American company rip off South Korean manufacturer’s intellectual property when it released the new iPhone or did Samsung shamelessly copy Apple patents to design the Galaxy line devices with Google’s Android operating system? These are some of the most pressing issues discussed all across the media, and Demonsys.com, through its articles, news and iPhone apps reviews published ahead of the mainstream channels is looking to inform and keep users updated on the most popular subjects in the tech industry.
iPhone is about to be released very soon, but the rumors keep going about it. This time there is an estimate of the units it will sell, which seem pretty impressive, if they are achieved of course.
According to Craig Berger, an analyst from FBR Capital Markets, iPhone 5 will sell 250 million units, which will bring for Apple a revenue of $144 billion! And the numbers can be even more impressive, if you consider that Apple has made $50 million from the sales of all the previous iPhones in the US market, over the last 5 years!
If you are wondering how he justifies his claims abou such a big increase in the sales, there are two major factors. The first one has to do with the loyalty of Apple’s customers. When you own an iPhone you feel the need to buy the new one, evn though you might not need it and even more, even though it might not add any impressive features. This loyalty is important in the smartphone market, since Apple knows that their customers will follow them.
