iPhone 4S

The article will provide a user with information and guidance on iPhone 4S.  There are three different versions of iPhone 4, they are the original one, the Verizon iPhone 4for CDMA networks and a slightly different design and the white iPhone. The latter has a different proximity sensor and some users claim there are more differences.

It is predicted that the release of iPhone 4S will boost iPhone’s popularity once again. It will be available in black and white, its dimensions will be 115.2 ? 58.6 ? 9.3 mm / 4.5 x 2.3 x 0.37 in, and it will weigh in 140g / 4.9 oz. – it’s the same size but it’s a bit lighter than the predecessor. All the accessories that a user has got for his/her  iPhone will work fine with the new one from cases to stereo systems at least for a year.  iPhone 4S uses a dual reception/transmission system.

Camera
iPhone 4S uses an 8MPix camera with autofocus which can be set by touching the screen, facial recognition, an LED flash which also makes a good flashlight, 1080p video recording, geotags etc. Photo Maximum resolution is 3264 x 2448, it features new and better software, new lenses. The A5 processor can make the first picture in 1.1s.  In iOS 5 a user can make pictures by pressing the volume rocker but it will affect picture sharpness.

CPU
iPhone 4S uses the A5 processor and Apple and it is fast.  It is not just in regular apps but in games also.

Storage
The storage space will be 64GB.  It will help when a user wants to have lots of apps, video and, especially, games and who have learned to save storage space will certainly appreciate the extra 32GB.

Assistant
The Siri system can answer any questions about weather, it can help a user type a message or a memo, create a route etc.

Apple iPhone 4

The article will educate readers about Apple iPhone’s functionality and features.  Let’s start by looking at the strengths and weaknesses of Apple iPhone 4.

Strengths

• Insanely high-resolution screen
• Improved email handling
• Longer battery life
• Wonderfully easy to use
• Blazingly fast
• Simple multitasking functionality
• Much improved camera

Weaknesses

• Video calling that only works between iPhone 4 handsets over Wi-Fi
• Signal drops when a user holds the phone in a certain way
• Doesn’t feel as thin as it is
• Expensive
• Tied to iTunes software

Case

Apple’s case protects the phone and should help with reception problems caused by obscuring the antenna
Despite its flat front and back, and a case that’s only 9mm thick, the iPhone 4 feels solid and sturdy, even though it is the thinnest smart phone out there.  The iPhone 4 includes an extra microphone for noise-cancelling purposes. The output of the iPhone 4′s speaker is asier to hear than that of previous iPhones, and a user doesn’t have to place it against our lugholes.

Retina display
Apple’s calls its display as a ‘retina display’, and it has a 960×640-pixel resolution, which is quadruple the number of pixels sported by the iPhone 3GS in the same 89mm (3.5-inch) area.
The phone’s display is good and when comparing to the stunningly clear, 480×854-pixel screen of the Motorola Milestone, the iPhone 4′s display has the advantage because of its bright whites and midnight-dark blacks.

iOS 4
The iPhone 4 runs the latest version of the iPhone operating system, iOS 4.  The multitasking feature offers advantages, even without updated applications.

The iPhone’s email app has also improved as a user can now read new emails from all the accounts in one combined inbox, and group conversations as in Gmail. A user can add wallpaper to the home screens and sort the icons into folders.

Camera
The resolution is 5 megapixels, and an LED photo light to help out in dark situations. With a steady hand, it’s easy to get decent shots with the iPhone 4 and the shots in dim conditions are good because of the LED light. The on-screen controls for the LED light are easy to use.  The iPhone 4′s camera has a super-fast shutter speed as it takes only a split second to capture a shot after a user has pressed the on-screen shutter button.

720p video
The iPhone 4 also records 720p, high-definition video at 30 frames per second, and video has the same tap-to-focus feature that previous iPhones only offered when taking still photos.

Apple offers an easy-to-use interface that makes video calls easy to make and control. FaceTime has plenty of pleasing features, including the fact that the image of users friend’s mug rotates automatically when a users chum rotates the handset.

The iPhone 4 also ramps up the Wi-Fi speed, with support for the latest 802.11n standard. HSPA connectivity enables fast downloads and uploads over 3G.

Nokia to Sue Apple

Finland’s mobile phone giant Nokia is planning to sue Apple for their failure to pass on royalties from their sales of the immensely popular iPhone.

Apple are said to have infringed upon Nokia’s mobile phone technology patents when developing the iPhone.

How much Nokia will be seeking has not yet been confirmed, but expert analyst Gene Munster from Piper Jaffray predicts that Nokia will seek 1-2% from every iPhone that is sold.

Over 30 million have been sold to date which would generate between $6 and $12 per iPhone, potentially totalling $400m.

Apple has recently announced third quarter profits of £1bn with the iPhone delivering a 7% growth, having to pass on 1-2% of its iPhone royalties would be relatively insignificant.

On the other hand, Nokia revealed a loss for the last quarter due to a downturn in sales; the first in a decade.

Nokia has confirmed agreements with approximately 40 companies, which included the majority of mobile phone handset makers, allowing the use of its technological advancements, but Apple had not signed the agreement.

Ilkka Rahnasto, vice-president of legal and intellectual property at Nokia explained, “the basic principle in the mobile industry is that those companies who contribute in technology development to establish standards create intellectual property, which others then need to compensate for.”

“Apple is also expected to follow this principle.”

Mr Rahnasto went on to say, that Nokia has actually invested over £36bn on research and development in the past two decades.

Highly respected Apple expert Mr Munster has confessed that a sum of $12 per phone was “unlikely,” but if Nokia did manage to prise such a high figure out of Apple, it “would not change our positive thesis on the iPhone and Apple.” He went on to add, that “ultimately, the resolution is uncertain.”

The BBC sought further information from Apple, but a spokesman for the technology giant revealed that the company didn’t comment on pending litigation.

Nokia have alleged a total of 10 patent infringements, applying to all models from the iPhone range since its 2007 launch. Some of the patents that have been allegedly breeched include wireless data technology, speech coding, encryption and security. Nokia went on to accuse Apple of “trying to get a free ride on the back of Nokia’s innovation.”

France – unlockable iPhone sells, but for a price

France is going mad over the whole iPhone liberation that has taken place over the last couple of weeks.  Apple is notorious for bringing out its iPhone in many countries around the world but only allowing one network to release the phone, providing somewhat of an interesting monopoly.  However, France has recently abolished the monopoly in their country as it was deemed unfair.

Now, French businesses across the country are stocking the iPhone, however, the price does not bring such a big smile to ones face.  The law in France states that anti-competitive actions, such as the ones that Apple brought into effect, and the law has been a fly in the ointment for Apple ever since the iPhone came to the market.

Orange won the contract to offer the iPhone in France, however, by offering the iPhone on an unlockable contract for the price of 649 Euros and even offered to unlock the handset for the quite extreme price of 100 Euros.

However, now that the iPhone has been allowed to be sold by just about anyone the price of the iPhone has shot up and some people are paying up to 900 Euros for the 16GB version.

However, although 900 Euros seems like a fortune to pay for the iPhone, compared to the United States for example the price is quite reasonable.  In the United States, if you want an iPhone you have to sign a 2-year contract with AT&T as well as shelling out $199, and then over the next couple of years you will be paying up to $100 a month.  At the end of the two year contract you will be looking at close to £2000 for the whole iPhone experience – so $1,200 for the iPhone isn’t too unreasonable after all.

The iPhone has enjoyed major success since its release.  The iPhone has become a household name and has even been battling as a major contender in the handheld gaming arena, against the likes of the PSP and the Nintendo DS. The iPhone has also enjoyed major success in the 4th quarter of 2008 as sales have sky rocketed past any other quarters sales.

However, Apple is being forecast to have difficulties through 2009.  It has already been announced that Steve Jobs will not be talking at Macworld in January, which is already being taken as a clear sign that this is due to Apple having nothing new to bring to the market.

Although many analysts are claiming that Apple is in a good position to survive the storm of the coming year, some analysts are concerned for the future of AppleYair Reiner, analyst for Oppenheimer, claimed that, “The question isn’t just 2009, it’s what happens after that.  What are going to be the next set of products that continue to drive the shift from Windows to Apple?”

Apple will be nervous entering 2009 as the economic downturn has already seen the end of establishments and can cause disruption even to stable firms.
