Yes. The interesting thing is that Apple got the Touch patent verified AFTER the Nokia deal. Every single touch phone infringe on Apples touch patent. The Apple/Nokia settlement was very smart by Apple. Apple pay a 3G fee. By next year all iOS stuff will be 4G. Apple have those patents.
Yes. Original iPhone had proximity sensor. unobtrusive notification: this will be fixed in iOS5. Android copied this idea from an app on Cyndia store. Apple hired the programmers to make a official iOS version. 3D = I would like to see a 3D version iPhone. I have a 3Ds + 3DTV+3D computer. In one year I have seen 4 films in 3D. It's a gimmick. SD card is a gimmick. Space is no issue with the cloud. iCloud automatically pushes out all your photos, movies, books, mp3, radio...
HTC loves to pay licensing fee to MSFT for every sold Android. Why are they paying MSFT but not Apple? We are seeing something funny happened in the Android market. 2 weeks ago Apple got the Touch Interface patent. Since then Android makers have been desperate to sign up with Microsoft. They hope that MSFT patent portfolio will protect them from Apple. MSFT is in this case a mafia organization. You pay them protection money and they will take care of the other....
You do know that all digital traffic is monitored by your government? You do know that US does not follow all telephone standards? The Verizon iPhone for example. It's not Apple's fault if the leaders in a country make decisions you don't like.
Android has 1 advantage. Tegra 3 can drive "retina" display. A5 can't. Samsung manufactures the 10 inch retina display. Why not use it with their own Galaxy series? Android makes does not care if you only get 5 hours battery time instead of 10-11 with iPad. (quod core on 40nm will draw 50% more energy + display draws more) Android market to geeks who look at numbers: dual core 1.2ghz, 8 megapixel and so on. "look. I can get a tablet that have 1.2 ghz instead of 1 ghz. It...
Todays A5 is to slow for a high density display. We all know that 28nm is not ready. But. PowerVR6 is ready. ST-Ericsson start to sell Dual core Arm9 1.5-1.8ghz with power6 series graphic later this year. Apple got back test chips from TSMC last week. Could this be A5+? Higher clocked and a new graphic core? I thought the test chips where 28 nm quod core chips that are going to be used for iPad 3 next year. Someone call TSMC and ask them?
Apple would never allow a "free" Iphone. It cannibals the value of the brand. It would be strange if Apple used the 3Gs frame since the parts in a 3Gs is not much cheaper then an Iphone4. A cheaper Iphone SKU should be a Iphone4 without Retina display and only 4 gig flash memory. Flash memory is not important with Icloud and is one of the most expensive component in the Iphone. A4 chip is cheaper for Apple then the 3Gs chip since A4 is an Apple own design. A4...
The gross profit is wrong on apple stuff. People seems to forget that Apple makes loads of money from their money "in the bank". The 70 billion Apple have loose. Apples gross profit without money is 22%. With money it is 32%. Other companies have larger gross profit then Apple: Marvel, Intel and so on. And of course, there are companies whit less gross profit: AMD, HP and so on. To many incompetent expert that forget that Apple have 70 billion in the bank...
No info about the CPU in the new version? The problem with the old version is that the CPU is to slow. When you connect USB drives to the device you only get 8-12 megabyte transfer rate. With an A4 CPU we would get 25-35 megabyte. The internal disk would also speed up considerably with a faster CPU.
When MacPro was released in 2006 an Xeon processor costed about 300-400 dollar. This meant that you could get a dual CPU system under 2000 dollars. With I7core Intel raised the Xeon prices dramatically. The slowest dual capable processor costed almost 700 dollar. Dual processor macs started to cost 3000 dollars. Thans to competition from AMD, intel has slashed the Xeon prices back to 300-400 dollar. We should be able to get a dual processor MacPro that is 600-800...
