That iPhone 5 appeal (or, confessions of a swayed Galaxy S III owner)

That iPhone 5 appeal (or, confessions of a swayed Galaxy S III owner)

I'm an Android user. I love my Samsung Galaxy S III. So why am I punching my details into the iPhone 5 reservation site every day? For the past week or so I've been using a borrowed iPhone 5, tracking how it holds up - and where it falls short - to the Android experience I've grown accustomed to. During that time I've been frustrated by Maps, impressed by the camera, and generally had my expectations of iOS shaken up some. It's always good to mix up the status-quo every so often, too, and along the way remember that there's more than one way to skin a metaphorical cellular cat.

Define Failure: 26m iPhones, good or bad?

Define Failure: 26m iPhones, good or bad?

26m iPhones in a three month period. Apple's Q3 2012 results are out, and while the huge year-on-year growth for iPad is an eye-catcher, it's the shifting sales of the company's flagship smartphone that have split opinion. For many - Nokia, for instance, or HTC - 26m sales would be the very definition of "a good problem to have", but for Apple it's not so straightforward. While the company has seen 28-percent year-on-year growth for the iPhone, its also seen a 26-percent drop quarter-on-quarter. So, is the iPhone stumbling, or is this all entirely understandable?

I think that's still true." Cook's comments come at a time when critics have been relatively silent on manufacturing plants such as Foxconn, while Walk Mossberg continues to question him on the subject.

The chipsets that are, in particular, seeing a strain on supply at the moment are their new 28-nm modem chips made to power the next generation of LTE speed devices. Qualcomm Chief Executive Paul Jacobs spoke to analysts saying that "demand went so far ahead of availability that we've decided to start spending more money to get more supply as soon as possible."
