The other phone companies HOPE that they will have problems like this because it will mean that they are selling millions of 1 phone model in a few weeks.
Not an expert, just my 2 cents worth. The problem is real, but it is not as simple as bridging the 2 points. It is a matter of covering a certain part of the antenna and somehow "blocking" the signal. Many people have latched on to this point and said that maybe Apple should have left the antenna inside the phone but putting it inside the phone would have made the initial signal weaker to begin with, probably not much different from covering it with the "grip of...
I maybe wrong but I doubt Apple will go with another provider in the US unless they all move towards a common network infrastructure in the future. There are a few reasons for this: 1. For Apple to sell through another provider, they will need a different phone since current iPhones are not CDMA compatible, even with T Mobile, compatibility is not 100%. This will mean that they will need to develop another phone for one or two countries. 2. Logistically, it will complicate...
It is normally a good thing when an analyst updates his estimates when new information becomes available. But flip flopping between 2 extremes and sometimes in the period of less than a day is ridiculous. Analysts are supposed to study the market then make an educated guess and not shoot their mouth off every chance they get with inaccurate estimates that they constantly change.
The problem is not his accuracy but the frequency. Talking for the sake of talking just to generate news. In most cases, analysts are rated not by their accuracy because they can always phrase their estimates to cover their asses but by how often they are quoted, by constantly changing their estimates by wide margins, they artificially generate extra quotes and because there are so many estimates made, it is easy to fall back on an earlier estimate and say, I got it right.
I hope you stick to your estimate of 10 and not flip flop to 4 then to 8 etc
Lol!I think it is mostly luck which stores have it in stock and for how long.
US demand seems to be satisfied for now with some stores actually having sets available for walk-ins. First phase of international launches seems to have gone better than expected and the second phase is a month away. I wonder if they can make that date or will it have to be pushed back for stock to build up to have a significant launch? Another thing to note, the new iPhone is supposed to be out soon as well. Apple has been great in phasing and staggering their product...
This is Gene Munster. Flip flop... If I recall correctly, his initial assessment was 2.7 million and then he raised it to 5.6 million and then he lowered it to 4.3 million and now he raised it to 6.2 million. All this in the last couple of months. I wonder how many more flips and flops before the end of the year? I pity the investors following the calls.
Ordered my 15 inch MBP a couple of days after launch, got it in 4 days. Specced with 15 inch hires antiglare display, 8GB of ram and 512GB SSD. I don't think it is a delay, more like they ran out of stock.
