++ The iPhone is beautiful as it is delivered by Apple. Putting a case on it just makes it ugly.
But that is going to almost triple the weight in comparison to aluminum. So a steel cover with 1/3 of the glasses thickness has still the same weight. I think they still can save some weight but a lot less.
The only real pro for aluminum on the back of the iP5 is weight. Getting rid of the glass on the back could save Apple quite some weight. And yes I like the design of the iP4 as it is now.
So that pretty much confirms the new high res screen for iPad2!
I don't think it will be a big problem for t-mobile. When you believe the report on n-tv http://www.n-tv.de/technik/Telekom-i...le1376536.html t-mobile has a backlog of 9 weeks for the IP4. When the other carriers run in the same problem there not much of a threat.
It wouldn't be the first time that Apple is chasing design goals, thus increasing (cost of manufacturing) the ASP until they lose the consumer and instead of refining the product or the price they just kill it all the way (Cube anyone)!
That could get really entertaining!
If you can believe the numbers on this site: http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-...m-and-cdma.htm then GSM is about 4 times the size of CDMA worldwide. But I think that 270 million possible subscribers should be big enough to recover costs for the development of a CDMA phone. And as far as I know even with 4G they would need CDMA for those providers because CDMA would be their fall back strategy when 4G is not available. And I think Apple shouldn't hand a walled...
I now tried to match the Mini with the cheapest iMac. CPU in the Mini is 400MHz slower. Same HD capacity, same RAM size, Magic mouse, wireless keyboard. iMac has the 9400M. Without a monitor the Mini is already € 150,- more expensive than the iMac missing 400MHz in CPU speed and a Monitor. If Apple wants me to buy the iMac why don't they just EOL the Mini? At the moment I just can't see where Apple wants to go with the Mini???
I just hope that the others don't copy too much from Apple on that front. I believe that the unibody approach made the products better for mobile use. But from an environmental point of view I don't believe Apple's arguments. When you think about how much Aluminum has to be produced and recycled because of the milling process and you take into account that China is producing most of its energy by firing coal I don't believe that this argument can hold its ground. Next they...
