Flying in the face of the initial disappointment of analysts, orders for the soon to be released iPhone 4S are flooding in from markets all over the world as a result of what the same analysts are now saying is pent up demand for the Apple smartphone upgrade. Apple reports that about 1 million units of iPhone 4S were pre-ordered on the first day it began accepting them.
Apple has rejected an out of court settlement offer made by Samsung over sales in Australia of the Android powered Galaxy Tab 10.1 challenger to the iPad 2 tablet, which Apple claims infringes its patents. The snub of Samsung's offer signals that Apple intends to go for broke like it has in Germany and try to ban sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 in Australia indefinitely.
It seems but a distant memory but it was only a month ago that HP withdrew its Touchpad tablet from the market and subsequently caused a frenzy among buyers who snapped them up for $99 in a fire sale. Looking back at that experience, if Apple is not concerned at the emergence of the new Amazon Kindle Fire then it should be.
This is an unbearably good headline :-)
Great Stuff Sam - I wish this could go out to a larger audience.
5G will save us, and the NBN will have to be redone anyway.
As always, a great article Sam.
I will never forgive him.
