[Reuters] Apple stumble seen opening door for rivals - Page 5

post #41 of 140
I want the 3d and 4g.

At least sprint will be able to get ahold of the iphone which will benefit them quite a bit with their pricing structures along with features.

You have to remember that most carriers only offer two year contracts now. So unless you were to purchase a new phone outright, your stuck with it. Also, in two years time, 4g will most definitely grow. So by the time ip5 gets released, it'll be behind the times again...

Unless it's launched next year (For people to upgrade from the iPhone 4), no carrier will get a massive amount of LTE coverage in a year.

It looks like they are flipping the switch pretty regularly. But the major cities (that already have 4g coverage) have a much higher population to equip with 4g phones. I would think that in itself would warrant the push for 4g hardware. I mean, with all this talk and publicity about 4g lately, what is the average consumer supposed to think when they go to the store and see that it's only 3g?

Public perception is already shifting towards 4G technology, or at least the presence of this elusive LTE network. The viral campaigns of Verizon and user first-hand experience with LTE is proving to be a success, as far as I can tell.

So yes, they will care more if a device will have 4G at this point, especially as more cities have the service activated.

My point exactly.

I wonder if the world of "newest, revolutionary" tech apple created will end up coming back to haunt them with this? Or maybe the backlash after the announcement shows it already did?

I guess you don't know about Apple's history?

If Apple wanted to do it right - they would have pushed out a 4G phone, because everyone has been waiting for 4G for what, two or three years already?
4g does not exist- It's a marketing term. For all intents and purposes my left ass cheek is 4g.

4g isn't real, this has been known for some time.

LTE is, However, an actual standard

The hardware refresh was as good as could be expected (besides perhaps not more RAM) and the software is a HUGE update. Also, a big push of Apple right now is the foreign markets. They're doing just fine locally.
Hey, do you have a source for the RAM? Been trying to find a legitimate source about it, I am hoping for 1GB but I am still preordering it anyways.

Apple intentionally gimps the 4S so suckers will buy it and feel left out when the iPhone 5 is released with "4G" and a bigger screen. Also, 1GHz dual core? C'mon. Could have been faster than 1GHz but I'm sure some iFan will come in here to tell me it's perfectly fine as is as they always do.
