and the iP4 will be even better with iOS 5 and iCloud! well there are high probabilities that the new iPhone 5 will: - be a combined CDMA/GSM world phone (that can be unlocked post-contract?). - support some version of LTE etc. - have an even better 8 megapixel camera. - have the latest even faster A5 processor chip. would that be enuff to get you to upgrade? and there is a real possibility it will also: - add an NFC chip. - have a bit larger screen. would that tip the...
"Everyone Else" and all the pundits gushing over the Fire really should wait until they have the real thing in hand to test and review in detail. a demo at a press conference is never the complete story - haven't they learned that hard lesson yet, after so many other hypes at the announcement phase have turned to flops in real life? just how good a user experience the Fire is in all the ways that matter, and how well the hardware performs in real life, remain to be seen....
the three big things most of the gushing blogsphere is missing (but some do see it) about the Fire are: - the biggest early impact will be on all the competing 7" Android tabs from other OEM's. Amazon is undercutting their price even if it's taking a loss. the extra $80 annual "Prime" subscription ($160 over two years) is the hardware subsidy they don't have. this could become a bloodbath. and next year the full size Amazon tab may do the same thing to 10" Android tabs....
well, first, the hardware is in fact "tired" - it's actually a modified Playbook from the same Asian factory. to keep costs down obviously. and second, it's aimed at the low end of the market, and the "tweener" size subset of that. Kia's compacts do not compete at all with BMW's sedans, even tho both sell "cars." we will see how big that market segment really proves to be in the next year or so. except for geeks and hobbyists, iPad buyers are not looking for cheap stuff....
this is beyond stupid. this is beyond don't have a clue. this is beyond what a total f*cking idiot. this is true all-time-level incompetence. Fortune should change its name to Bus Token.
what these latest stats tell us is RIM's market base is in free fall and collapsing, and Windows Phone is DOA. great leadership! stay the course! Apple will get a bump of course with iPhone 5. good goal for next January would be 33% share, which probably will be about where it levels out for good.
oh come on. Amazon itself gave Siegler a hands-on quick look, to boost some hype of course (and boy did he ever gush). he didn't make it up and it's not a fake.
good lord, someone who pays attention to what is actually happening! rare indeed ... welcome. i expect the Amazon tab will sell decently, if it is easy to use. they will certainly push it hard and the price is within reach of more people. but it's still just a 7" Amazon appliance - a niche product. the total of potential tablet buyers who are heavily focused on Amazon as their media source (other than books) is modest. it won't offer the Google cloud services that draw...
that was my point - it's far too soon to be hyping W8. and until the question of forward hardware compatibility for W8 is answered, the hype has already created the uncertainty. you can't put that genie back in the bottle.
to tell you the truth, i can't figure out what people are arguing about. anyway, simple outcome will be that WP 7.0 apps will quickly stop being bought/updated. they're obsolete. and there are just are not that many WP 7 phones in use for them now anyway! most of those small number of current owners will likely update their phone to 7.5 anyhow, and so buy 7.5 apps from now on. they'll only keep running the older apps that are not worth updating to 7.5. like games they...
