So the iPhone 5 finally debuted with a larger screen, which is what all of smart phone users need. Considering that the Apple brand is a luxurious one, it is weird that Apple took so long to realize that a big screen was necessary.
Marketing strategy? Nah. I knew firsthand when the first iPhone came out that it would be a hit. When the first iTouch came out, I was already impressed with it. I thought that if they could expand their first generation iOS to something more, the ability for developers to create apps and such, then this would be a worldwide hit.
And a hit it was. The iPhone’s hardware is nothing new. Many Android smartphone models have better ones. The factor for me is within the operating system itself. Apple did pave the way for the smartphone revolution to really take off but then they have been stagnant when it comes to innovation.
iOS is boring. Nothing new and the look stayed the same. They could at least show some more pizzazz by showing something new with the graphical user interface. Apple is lucky that so many fanboys still worship their gadgets as something from the heavens.
A smartphone’s success really lies in the apps. If there are no apps, a phone is just a phone, nothing more. Apple’s devices are hits because of the sheer number of apps that are developed daily by just about any developer.
Now … the iPhone 5 is a good product. So is the iTouch. But the Nano? Who the hell would buy that weird looking gadget when the price difference between an iTouch and a Nano is only $50. The Nano is a waste of money and environmental resources. Go get the iTouch. Its 5MP camera and CPU all the more makes it a tempting product.
I am sure everybody’s looking forward to the next iPhone model, dubbed the iPhone 5. The iPhone 4S is disappointing. It certainly cannot compete with Android phones that came out this year. I, for one am holding on to my wallet till that elusive iPhone 5 comes out.
I am sure the hardware specifications will be way different than the current model.

Pegatron has already earned enough trust from Apple to start manufacturing the iPhone 5, part makers said Monday night. The company is due to make at least 10 million to 12 million CDMA iPhone 4 units but has reportedly been picked for an initial iPhone 5 order of “at least” 10 million units. The time interval for making the new devices wasn’t mentioned by Digitimes’ insiders, but production might start in May.
The former ASUS manufacturing wing is not expected to be alone in making the iPhone 5. Earlier talk since corroborated by the Verizon iPhone’s appearance has suggested that Pegatron will share the manufacturing duties with Apple’s longstanding manufacturer Foxconn and thus that the initial batch of iPhone 5 units could be much larger.
Pegatron’s involvement supports notions that the 2011 iPhone redesign will support CDMA from the start, though it is not yet certain whether that involves a dual-mode chipset with GSM included.
In making the nearer term, CDMA-only iPhone, Pegatron may be taking extreme steps to meet Apple’s order requests. Company chairman TH Tung has supposedly gone against tradition and would not stop for the Lunar New Year. Instead, employees due to work that period at the Shanghai factories making iPhones will be paid triple their usual rate. The demand is such that plants in Suzhou normally reserved for notebooks should handle some of the extra workload.
