Hell i do not even know if i will be alive in 2015.I do not like to think so far ahead honestely
Ashura, 10 Oct 2011Yes i agree.This could be a stunt by AppleAfter comparing the best of 2007 with the best of 2011...can you imagine what phones will be in 2015? Maybe some that would make Galaxy and iphone 4 look like some fosils!

Article posted just earlier today.

Waste of time reading the article, full of dumb analogies. Its simple for me really: When I buy something I like to get my moneys worth. But hey in America not everyone thinks the same, that's why apple can capitalize on not so top of the line products and I respect that fact, they're not the only ones doing it. I don't hate apple I buy their products for my kids and they love them, I just moved on to something better when they they failed to impress me.
While we know hardware specs is important to a degree, it's the *experience* of using the device that keeps the sale growing for Apple. The software offerings by the iOS and now with iCloud will no doubt leave others years behind. When will people understand this. We live in the post-PC era now, competing by showing off hardware specs is the only sure way to lose and lose.
That reminds me of the older Alfa Romeos (even the new ones)
All buyers knew and know that after 250 kilometers they will visit a mechanic to replace that torn out cable or to repair a short circuit in the electrical system not to mention that (and that applies to the old Alfas) that they will show rust after six months on the road. But they love the badge and they buy with the heart not with common sense.
The iPhone is not a king anymore but people will buy it because as you correctly said they are suffering from iPhone mania which is uncurable and they will continue buying it because of the badge.
On the other side the BMWs,Mercedes,Porches of the phone (call me Samsung SII and the likes) are for those who buy with the brain and not with the heart.
Ashura, 10 Oct 2011Acording to Apple´s interview Mr Jobs did.but i agree with you it is virtualy impossible... moreHe appointed Cook probably after the doctors told him he didn't have much time left...Maybe he had some ideas that will be implemented in iphone5 but no more then that..just look how much mobile industry has evolved in the last 4 years...from N95(one of my favourites),U600 and D840, w880i, shine...to Galaxy 2, iphone 4, Sensation, Optimus 3D...huge leap!
What can I say..I was right...
Apple knows how to do business and this is just the peak of the iceberg NO ANDROID phone can have these numbers, not even SG2 or even the Nexus Prime.....
Apple is the GOD of marketing......

I love the iPhone...But I dont have one and I will never want one.
I just love it when they get released because I work for a mobile network and there is no better customers than Apple iPhone customers. They dont care about the price, they never complain (because in their mind they have the greatest piece of technology ever invented!) and we sell hundreds!
Its christmas time for phone retailers - and I am more than happy to sell all these customers a slight upgrade to the iPhone 4 if they want to shell out there hard earned cash. Which then makes me happy because I make lots of Bonus!
Love to hate them!
