Apple iPhone five Launch Delayed To 2012
Apple can be a primary mobile phone manufacturer which is common for its iPhones. After the unforeseen accomplishment of its iPhone four now Apple is planning to launch its iPhone five that is not formally declared but. It is being stated that Apple has delayed its release to 2012.
Less than two weeks ago, shares of Apple slipped after an announcement by iPhone manufacturer Foxconn that it was freezing hiring at several Chinese factories ignited concerns about falling demand for the Cupertino-based company’s devices.
Taiwan IT manufacturer FoxConn, which makes Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone smartphone and iPad tablet along with Dell and Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) PCs and Cisco Systems (CSCO) networking gear, has opened an investment fund to back startup companies making wearable computing devices, according to a Bloomberg report.
As you know, Amazon has been working on a streaming device to compete with Chromecast and Apple TV. It is an obvious choice. Google’s Chromecast has been selling unbelievably all over the world. The Verge is reporting that the set-top box, which is running a forked version of Android, has been delayed by Amazon and could face a launch beyond the coveted holiday season.
Apple’s primary manufacturing partner Foxconn is said to be increasing its staff, shortly after a freeze on new hires following the holiday season, in order to get ready for a big push come summer when Apple debuts its next iPhone.
Rumor has it – and we’ve confirmed – that Amazon will launch its first smartphone on June 18. The device will be unique in the marketplace thanks to its ability to deliver 3D effects courtesy of four front-mounted IR cameras. What wasn’t known is how Amazon planned to scan our faces to handle the UI elements.
With the introduction of the $499 8.9-inch Kindle HD with LTE, Amazon now has a device with the same price tag as the new iPad. Of course, the devices are very different when it comes to capacity, connectivity and screen size but the consumers will have no choice but to compare them.
Yet, contrarily to what many have said, Amazon is not trying to be yet another Apple wannabe.
Looks like Foxconn will be an OEM behind the upcoming Kindle Fire 2. With this decision, Amazon also takes on selection and certification of the components that will be used. Hopefully this proves beneficial to consumers. It will undoubtedly lower the cost per unit for Amazon. The original Kindle, maufactured by Quanta, was based on the existing design for the Blackberry Playbook.
