What is the hype about this new iPhone 5?
So what is all the buzz about? Haven’t you heard about the iPhone 5 release?
On Tuesday, October 4th at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California, Apple will be making the big announcement on the new iPhone 5 release date. Pretty much the same information has been circulating through articles and blogs. In case you have not had a chance to follow the new iPhone news, there are rumors that there could be two iPhone’s released, one being the iPhone 4s and the iPhone 5. Presumbly, the iPhone 4s would be sold at a lower cost. There has been speculation about what we can expect from the upgrade.
- Possibly a larger screen
- New design
- iOS 5- over 200 new features
- Newer Apps
- Faster Performance
- A better quality camera
Also, there are speculations that Sprint may be offering the iPhone with an unlimited data plan, leaving them the only carrier to offer that package. Android still holds a larger market share than Apple. According to Nielsen Co. Android accounts for 43% of the U.S. market for smart phones operating systems, while Apple has 28%.
In today’s society we want instant gratification; we love to stay updated with the latest and coolest technologies. I am going to be honest if Sprint jumps on the bandwagon, I will be getting the new iPhone depending on the new features and so forth!
My questions to you are:
- Do you think that this new iPhone will be much different than the previous one’s?
- Do you currently own an Android? If yes, are you going to switch to the new iPhone if your contract is almost over
- How do you feel about Apple introducing a new iPhone every year opposed to Android every now and then?
