Seeing the other brands, if you are tempted to the large screen and a bigger smartphone and that too from Apple, there is no way you will deny this offer. Larger iPhones are on the way, according to a new report. Bloomberg reported that Apple has plans to kick-start production in China within the next few months on two new iPhones that will feature larger screens.

Want A Bigger iPhone?

The new bigger iPhone will hit the market quick because the report indicates the devices will be ready to ship to retailers in September. It will have a screen that is 4.7 inches by 5.5 inches and the device will be rounder and thinner than the iPhone 5S, sources told Bloomberg. The decision of taking larger displays is a bid to enable the Cupertino company to better compete with the larger-screened Smartphones from Samsung and HTC.

Some internet sources spread rumors that a 5.5-inch iPhone 6 suggest the device will not be available in large numbers due to its use of a sapphire display cover, which is not yet available in large amounts.

iPhone 5C Replaces iPhone 5, While iPhone 4S Remains

Posted By: Poketors - August 19, 2013
KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo addressed to investors on Monday regarding iPhone market forecast that the long-rumored device from Apple, "iPhone 5C" could replace the iPhone 5 while Apple will continue sales for iPhone 4 series. Apple's iPhone 5C might not be a "low end" product after all as rumors are concerned. The logic behind that line of thinking was that Apple wanted its entire iPhone lineup to feature larger than 4-inch display screen with faster connector by removing the legacy 30-pin connector from the Apple's product lineup.

The "iPhone 5C" is expected to include largely the same components as Apple's currently available iPhone 5, including an A6 processor and a 4-inch Retina display. Apple is expected to cut costs and boost margins by featuring a plastic back for the device, which is likely to reduce the present rate, but can't expect very cheap price. It will be having fingerprint sensor beneath the home button as well as a dual LED flash component for better low-light photos. Apple has not confirmed anything yest regarding this and we have to wait until the event organized by Apple on 10th September regarding unveiling its new iPhone.

Posted By: Poketors - August 17, 2013
The most discussed over internet and rumored smart watch from Samsung, Galaxy Gear, is going to be introduced in September and it will be available in stores afterwards. According to the report by Bloomberg, it will be unveiled on September 4, just two days before the IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin.

Samsung, the biggest technology company in Asia, is going to to create a new industry of wearable devices as the market for top-end handsets nears saturation.

The Galaxy Gear which will be released next month will not be having a flexible display, though the company is continuing to work on developing a bendable screen. It will be unveiled the same day as Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, a phablet series gadget.

Apple Watch is also in the pipeline and Apple didn't revealed any date of release the product. Samsung became the world’s largest smartphone maker last year, overtaking Apple. But Apple is continuing its release on iPhone series and will be relesing iPhone5C (a low cost iPhone) and upgrades for iPhone5 (known as iPhone5S) according to rumored reports.
So as of now we have a rough idea that two smartphone giants are working on introducing smart watch. Lets wait for the devices and we will get to know more.

Apple Sales: iPhone and iPad Sales

Posted By: Poketors - June 11, 2012
To put Apple’s growth in perspective let’s take a couple minutes to review this infographic on Apple’s sales for the iPhone and iPad in 2011. The sales of iPhone and iPad have been fair enough and has been presented in the infographic. 

iPhone Sales

The iPhone is Apple’s most successful product to date. Since it was first introduced in 2008 Apple has sold more than 200 million iPhones. To put that number in perspective, it is only 13 million short of the number of cars sold in the US since 2008. The iPhone alone is responsible for 40% of Apple’s revenue in 2011, and one of the most successful technology devices in terms of sales in the history of computing.

iPad Sales

The iPad is also one of the most popular personal computing devices on the market. With the release of the newest iPad Apple sold 3 million devices in the first 72 hours it was available. That works out to be 694 iPads every minute or 11 iPads per second.

Facebook Camera apps launched for iPhones

Posted By: Poketors - June 02, 2012

Facebook launched “Facebook Camera“, a photo-sharing app for Facebook users with Apple iOS devices to upload and browse photos on their smartphones. The camera app lets people take Instagram-style pictures that can be shared with iPhones.
It is a stand-alone app, which syncs to the Facebook social network, letting friends consult one another’s photos. It is said that the new app is faster than the primary Facebook app.
The app will show you a feed of great photos from your Facebook friends. You can swipe to see more of any album or tap to enlarge an individual photo. You can crop the photos or apply filters. The app supports uploading multiple photos as well. Users can add captions, mark their location and tag friends.

The New York Times’ Bits blog says that Instagram has 40 million users, while Facebook has 900 million. Thus the Camera app will be able to tap into the requirements of those Facebook only users who are not in Instagram.
