Same as always, but some small changes
Yes, that will be interesting. See, no matter how small and minute changes Apple makes. They basically own hardcore fans that will dive into the Apple propaganda year after year no matter what. And as usual, that will be the bulk of the first and second waves we'll see in Iphone sales. What's interesting this time around, is that some of them are beginning to wonder if what's being told to them is really true. They're beginning to accept the fact that even though the Iphone 5 might be the best Iphone ever, it is not necessarily the best cell phone ever.
These are the iconic features they used to look up to when encoutering their Android counter parts:
1) The size of the Iphone 4 has been proven to be the best based on human anatomy.
So, unless we have muted and have developed longer fingers, they can no longer use this in an argument. Others might even feel that apple just turned its back on Job's core philosophies.
2) The best screen ever. Well, that's no longer the ase
3) Iphone screen and back made of glass show a superior level of engineering and class. Well, they're now using aluminum. So now what?
In short, all features that were used to describe all that made the Iphone a magical device are quickly being surpased by the competition. If they don't turn around quick to what made them the great sucess they still are, they will loose themselves into the money machine they're now.
Big mistakes this time around:
1) Not adopting NFC. Imagine your self going into your vehicle and simply pairing your phone to your car by simply placing it in a certain area of the vehicle.
2) Wireless charging. The place in which you place your phone in your vehicle is also a wireless charging station. How about buses, train, bus stations, restaurans, planes? The benefits of wireless stations is pretty much endless.
3) Micro USB. Despite how much of a hardcore fans are, they have to see that developing a brand new cable/adapter to power and sync your phone to a PC is an extra source of income. Yes, an adapter to use Micro USB was needed regardless for older units, but standardizing this connection on the phone would have been cheaper for the users in the end as you pretty much borrow these cables from onyone, even the competition.
Apologies for the long read, but I hope I wasn't way off point. Here is to future great competitions between all Phone EOM's which translate on cheaper and better phones for everyone. Thanks!
