Apple, “Somebody stop me!!!”

Not far long was the announcement of the Verizon iPhone. The iPhone community all over the globe are beginning to hear news that incorporates Apple’s plans to prepare the iPhone 5 and iPad 2 based upon a newer and faster dual core processor that would support much higher resolution in an astonishing way.

So much for the iPhone community being able to enjoy games and applications on their iPhone that incorporate high resolution, it wasn’t long when people were left awed with the iPhone 4, the iPhone 5 is assumed to be very much around the corner. The newer and faster dual core processor can very easily inherit the legacy of the A4 (the processor used in iPhone 4 and iPad) and the chances are high that it would be called A5.

Apple has been working along the Blue Ocean strategy for long. It is their high quality and distinctive interface upon which they prepare their products that really matters. The non-compatibility of major applications has allowed Apple to stand out of the ordinary. Apple, be it iPhone, iPad or their systems, has always considered its competition as well as its customers irrelevant.

Alongside Apple, another highly successful interface is that of the Google Android. Android has done wonders with respect to its growth and success in recent times. But most importantly, Google Android has not yet been as quick in terms of development as the Apple and its iPhone.

Think of a 10-inch display screen that incorporates features and high resolution that a 24-inch monitor displays. This sort of development and expertise in technology is something that is not usually heard of and if anyone has had the potential to do it, that anyone surely cannot be any other than Apple who can make it happen. Similar technology is reportedly to be utilized in the Apple TV and it would further augment the productivity and effectiveness of the iPad 2 as the usage of this technology would make the iPad 2 compatible for all GSM, UMTS and CDMA networks.

T-Mobile USA iPhone 5 release date: All signs point to mid-April at the latest

“There is good news for those who are waiting for the Apple iPhone 5 to make its arrival to T-Mobile as the CEO of the carrier said that the device will be coming earlier than what was first anticipated,” Dwayne Madden reports for Autoomobile.

“He said that the Apple iPhone 5 could be in T-Mobile stores within the next 3 to 4 months instead of 6 to 9 months,” Madden reports. “If all goes well you should be able to get hold of the device by the spring.”

Madden reports, “Just last week TMoNews said that T-Mobile had told employees there was to be a black out of 4 weeks from the last 2 weeks in March to the first 2 weeks in April. In the past a blackout has meant the release of a new iPhone and so it looks like the blackout at T-Mobile will see the release of the Apple iPhone 5 on the carrier by mid-April latest.”

Apple to release two 4-inch iPhones featuring in-cell touch in 2013, say sources

“Apple is planning the release of two iPhones in 2013 that are likely to be sized 4-inch and feature in-cell technology, according to industry sources,” Siu Han and Alex Wolfgram report for DigiTimes.

“Previously it was said that Apple would release a lower-cost version of its iPhone with a bigger screen in 2013,” Han and Wolfgram report. “But the sources claimed that Apple is indeed developing an iPhone with a bigger screen, but that will not be among the models to be lancuhed this year.”

Han and Wolfgram report, “However, the sources noted it is still yet to be determined if Apple will have adequate supply of in-cell touch panels in 2013 for a lower-cost version of the iPhone due to mass production issues…”

Apple iPhones accounted for 6.2 million of 9.8 smartphone sales activated by Verizon in Q412

“Verizon released their Q4 2012 earnings today, and as we already knew, the carrier announced that they activated 9.8 million smartphones in the quarter gone by,” Yoni Heisler reports for Network World. “But what we didn’t know, until now, was what percentage of that figure were iPhone activations.”

“All told, Verizon activated 6.2 million iPhones, with nearly half of them being the iPhone 5,” Heisler reports. “Put differently, the iPhone accounted for 63.2% of all of Verizon’s smartphone sales this past quarter. That figure represents the highest proportion of iPhones sold in any previous quarter.”

Heisler reports, “Last quarter, Verizon activated 3.1 million iPhones, which accounted for approximately 46% of their total smartphone activations.”

Apple suppliers to work during Chinese New Year as high demand for iPhone 5 and iPad mini continues

“Taiwan’s United Daily News (via Brightwire) claims that Hon Hai Precision Industries and Flexium Interconnect will keep certain production lines open during the Chinese New Year to keep up with demand for Apple’s newest iDevices,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.

“For 2013, China’s most important holiday will start on Feb. 10,” Campbell reports. “A move to keep production facilities online during the holiday would be an indication that supply is just barely meeting demand, as evidenced by the U.S. Apple Online Store’s one-week wait time for all iPad mini models.”
