Rumors of delay for the Apple iPhone 5
More suspense surrounding the time (AAPL) Apple will release it’s New iPhone 5.
Adding to the excitement of Wednesday was a report saying that the touch panel manufacturers Apple has not received any word from Apple on the iPhone time to stop 4 and start work five iPhone production, according to Taiwan’s DigiTimes daily. Because manufacturers need several months of waiting time to prepare for production of a new product, lack of notification of Apple suggests at least two possibilities: The iPhone 5 is delayed, or the iPhone 5 is almost the same as the iPhone 4.
Normally, Apple introduced a new iPhone every summer. But the World Wide Developers’ Conference this year, to be held in June, Apple is focused on software, leaving observers and analysts believe that a new iPhone will be a no-show. Apple is enjoying strong sales of its IPAD two now, and the launch of the iPhone 4 Verizon in February was undoubtedly a boost for sales. However, any delay or minor rehash the next iPhone has implications for large investors, who saw it as a threat to strong sales momentum for Apple.
With more muscular Google (GOOG_) Android phones hit the market sporting dual-core processors, 4G LTE speeds and 4-inch screen, Apple iPhone 4 is lagging behind in the arms race. And if the iPhone 5 will not arrive before the crucial holiday shopping season, which is concerned could argue that the smartphone is left behind in the sales race. In the past month, while the Nasdaq was up 1%, Apple shares are down 5% on fears that, among other things, spell the iPhone on the market can be carried out. More delays on hold and still not help to recast that spell.
