By now every single soul must have heard how awful Apple Maps is in iOS6. With thousands of complaints worldwide, this isn’t an area Apple is claiming to be proud of either. Nokia seems to have taken this opportunity and remind everyone, how good their Maps is, in the meantime.
Apple’s online store now says that iPhone 5 shipments may be delayed by 3-4 weeks. With 2 million pre-orders in just 24 hours, this isn’t quite surprising though. However, there may be plenty of users who initially thought to upgrade their phone to an iPhone 5…may begin to get confused. 4 weeks delay may be just too much for their patience!
When Google introduced Google+, a lot of people thought…”oh no, not another Facebook clone!”. However, 12 months since its inception, the company has proved to be a contender for Facebook. At 400 million users in just a year, Google+ is certainly doing good!
Apple stocks (AAPL) hit a record $700 a share, after the company announced that the iPhone 5 pre-orders surpassed the 2 million mark in just 24 hours. Stocks peaked at $701.90 a share today.
In spite of all the complaints against the iPhone 5, all the mockery, all the stat comparisons, the world’s best selling smartphone still seems to be…well, the best selling smartphone. Apple today announced that iPhone 5 pre-orders exceeded 2 million units in just 24 hours. That is almost twice that of iPhone 4S for the same period.
Samsung recently responded to Apple’s iPhone 5 with this rather ironic ad that says “It doesn’t take a genius“. After the expensive defeat (over $1 billion) to Apple, Samsung is ready to take the battle to the next level.
iPhone 5 pre-orders start tomorrow at 12:01am (PST). The actually shipment start September 21st and start at $199.99 for 16GB models for two-year contracts. Want to see it before you buy it? No problem. You can do that at any Apple store in the US at 08:00 am on the launch day.
The mobile phone that Apple is most worried about, a.k.a. Galaxy SIII, is currently Samsung’s most successful, ever. With over 20 million sold in just 100 days, things look really good for the $143 billion Korean giant.
If you think that Apple’s iPhone is the only phone that sells in 10s of millions, you are wrong. Samsung, a.k.a. Apple’s deadliest enemy, is all set to get its 10 millionth Galaxy S III in the market by July.
