Apple orders millions of iPhone 5s for September release
Insiders blabber again
Apple has allegedly ordered 15 million iPhone 5 handsets from its Taiwanese manufacturing partners with a view to start shipping the gadget in September.
Well, that's what those familiar unnamed insiders from Taiwan's component world say. Apparently, notebook manufacturer Pegatron Technology has landed the Apple order, Digitimes reports.
It is claimed that Pegatron's plants in Shanghai have started to increase their workforces in preparation.
Anyone looking for another complete revamp may be disappointed, though. The sources insist there is little difference between the iPhone 4 and this September's successor, giving credence to the impression this is merely an iPhone 4GS. ®
Re: RE: Why wait?
So you don't own an iphone, have just upgraded to not-an-iphone, don't want to own an iphone, and you can't see why people would be waiting to buy an iphone?
You are definitively the target audience..
Depending on what it is like, I may finally upgrade my three year old iphone 3G.
3. It isn't HTC.
They've mucked about with the bluetooth, and they recently tried to abandon any pretence of continuing to support the users of the HTC desire. HTC is best avoided IMO - they might have nice shiny new gadgets out now, but will they still be supported in a year's time?
same old rubbish spouted...
Go to a shop, buy an Android phone. Give Google no details. Turn phone on (no PC required) and use. Simple.
Want to download apps? OK, sign up for a Gmail account. Provide Google with a name (could be yours, but, who says it does?). No address, no date of birth, no credit card details, no telephone number.
Activate the Market with the new anonymous Gmail account. Download apps.
Now... what details exactly can Google sell?
So far I have had zero spam emails, zero spam sms, zero spam phone calls. If they are selling my info, the people they are selling to are probably the most incompetent marketeers on the planet.
Re: Why wait?
Depends on what you define "better than iPhone". Rather a lot of people like the consistent and slick user interface and the absence of bundled crapware and ugly skins which only serve to slow the phone down. Not to mention functionality that isn't half baked and a past history that gives you the confidence that you're probably going to be seeing up to 2 years worth of software updates.
Send from my operator untouched, unlocked retail HTC Desire HD which still hasn't seen one update since I bought it 9 months ago...
I DON'T CARE
It's the best phone.
It's 3G and has the WiFis.
