I actually get nervous by people defending apple when the know that the 5 is nothing special!!!! Whyyyy cant you people just admit it and buy a s3 for god sake!!!
It's not from supply shortage, it's because some of us are smart enough to realise that the iPhone 5 is not an upgrade, but rather the same as the 3gs, 4, 4s. We habeas nowmigrated to android mad damn we should have done it sooner
Eight Man, 26 Oct 2012The iPhone 5 is a big let down for the consumer, but I hope the mini version of the iPad will ... morebig let down? really? to who? Android users? the reviews speaks for itself. Not including us, because a lot of posers posing as iphone 5 owners as they do not actually own it, but pretending they own it, and making negative comments about it. Its exceeded expectations. 8 billion in revenue? How bout selling 5 million units in 2 days? Not even the Intendo Wii was able to do something like that.
the next quarter will be coming back with new macmini, ipadmini, new macbook pro with retinadisplay and new iMac.
all these should push up the sales to record again.
and all the people who say "apple is going down" will eat their words again.
What do you expect..the are paddling the same thing and no matter how an I- Fan you can be, you get tired of it. Did apple pin it hopes on the IP5 that even the fans are buying and saying i'll return it because one there is nothing really new about it and one i wasted 1 k on a defective phone or is the Ipad mini supposed to show that apple is innovating?
Zak, 25 Oct 2012I love apple but m happy to know they are finally losing .i had high expectations from iPhone ... moreLosing? IPhone 5 selling more than they can make.
You need to remember that q3 results included only one week sales for iPhone 5. So next Q we know how well iPhone still selling, i bet its going to be best selling smartphone ever.
Anonymous, 25 Oct 2012The beginning of a downward trend. Only then will they realise that true innovation is what th... moreLol at the secret Android fanboy wish, this solid quarter was on the back of Google's terrible earnings, as well as Amazon which has also just reported worse earnings than predicted. Seems like Apple is giving solid performance.
In the 1990's Sony was a horrible company selling everything over-priced and closed - they even had their own memory card format! People just bought their stuff because of the name and the consumer products became poor. I never bought their products
Then they lost their reputation and suddenly their products became much better qyality and much more open and now I buy a lot of them (notebook, cameras, sometimes phones and probably soon a TV)
Hoping the same will happen to Apple - a sudden (and deserved) loss of hype will force them to make things which are open and genuinely good. Maybe then I will even buy Apple stuff myself (when they are no longer just fashion objects)
Owning an Android make one become one, come on it is very obvious that Apple Q3 should be lower as everybody hold on to their purchase while waiting for IP5.
The iPhone 5 is a big let down for the consumer, but I hope the mini version of the iPad will be a huge seller - actually replacing my current iPod for music, maps, email, twitter, and camera - great size for car and home use!!
I love apple but m happy to know they are finally losing .i had high expectations from iPhone 5 but it has nothing new to offer . I hope they realise they aren't going in the right direction . Ipad mini is a bigger iPod and 4th gen ipad huh I don't see the point in even calling it a new product. M using ipad 3 n I don't find the urge to even think of upgrading it . I was so happy with my iPhone 4S, when one of my friends told me to give a chance to galaxy s3 before the release of iPhone 5 , I did . After using it I hate to say, but s3 is miles ahead of iPhone . I love iPhone but its saddening to see their new(?) products . I wish they come up with something new so I can get back to my beloved apple and make fun of android . I miss the excitement I felt ,buying iPhone 4 and - even - 4s . Plz bring innovation back to ur products apple .
