This would make sense ONLY if iPhone 6 is coming out much sooner then we think. Assuming October be this cycle Shipping date. And they push the next cycle to May/June or even April / May. Which means the Top Model 5S becomes the Middle Model and 5C becomes the entry point.
I really dont like these story telling me how much land Apple owns for its DC. I want to know how much Server Floor Space they have. How many server they could host. etc
I think once completed, they could start offering free iCloud Backup to every iPhone.
Anyone who have any knowledge of the industry and apply some technical knowledge to this rumors and speculation will know none of them are true. Most of these Analyst have ZERO technical background. You are only getting a faster clock, slightly tweaked Swift Core with much better Graphics and Double the Ram. ARMv8 isn't coming for another year or so at the earliest.
Samsung's evilness goes far beyond Google. But this dont get much reported for political reasons. Larry P. isn;t evil per se. But he create evil by saying he does no evil, which he did and went on labeling others evil. And that to me is the ugliest form of evil.
HTC and Lenovo Cant buy it for Political Reasons.
Patents isn't even worth 2B and even they are 1B, It will be a Joint Buying like from Nortel Wireless
Google already has Motorola.
Samsung dont need them.
Microsoft has Nokia.
HP and IBM not in, so who else?
Sounds like really dead in the water to me. Its market value of 5B is highly valued, even 2B is too much.
