On Tuesday, Apple launched its new iPhone 4. Categorically a 5th update to its iconic smartphone. However many investors and analysts considers it as a disappointment in view withthe pattern it has been showcased.
Some critics—Forrester Research CEO George Colony to name one of many—have said the iPhone 4S represents a move from great to good. These observers wanted a 4G iPhone and perhaps a redesign. Apple overhauled the guts, but kept the core iPhone design intact. But let’s get real here: The iPhone 4S will keep an upgrade cycle humming and show up at two new U.S. carriers in Verizon and Sprint. Toss in pricing—free with a two-year plan for the iPhone 3GS, $99 for the iPhone 4 and $199 for a starter iPhone 4S—and Apple will do very well for itself. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster argues that there’s pent up demand for the iPhone 4S at Verizon. Rest assured that demand is at Sprint too.
More or less the new version of iPhone is similar to its older version except it comes with extra 'S'. Neverthless it is claimed that guts are improved and it deploys features and processors used in ipad. Further it also offers enhanced 8MP camera and an advanced antenna.
"It was a big disappointment," comments Kagan,Jaff., an independent technology and telecom expert based in Atlanta. "What we expect from Apple every year is something that shakes the earth. What we had was an incremental improvement from what we had last year."
