Can someone pass me a trash can so I can dump these rumors once and for all? Seriously there is just a bit too much of iPhone all across the web and the rumors are now turning from interesting to downright unbelievable and worse; boring. The latest round of rumor has gone the limits to state that Apple will be releasing not just the iPhone 5 [and the iPhone 5 unboxing], but the iPhone 4S, a cheaper version of the iPhone 4 based on the CDMA technology and the iPad 3. Now if only has Steve Jobs has lost it, we might actually see this happen, but Steve Jobs is sick, not losing his sanity.
There are numerous reasons why this rumor is nothing short of a baseless mumble. A couple of reasons are:
- Apple has waited for a year and a half to release an update to iPhone 4, be it the iPhone 4S or the iPhone 5. And it wouldn’t want to compete its own line of product with having 3 similar [almost] devices in the market.
- The iPad 2 has only been around for a mere 6 months, it is doing great in terms of sales, is a wonderful device and hence it makes no sense for Apple to kill this product with the release of the iPad 3.
Of all the above stated points and previous discussions the iPhone 4S sounds a more believable rumor. Primarily because it will be a low cost option for iPhone lovers, then this iPhone 4S could probably be sold at flat rates without the necessity of being tied to carriers [if it’s not CDMA only]. Lets see what Apple has in the plate for all its fans.
The rumors also mention that the announcement for these will be made on September 8, which is barely a month away. The Apple event would announce the upcoming devices with the same being available towards the end of October. Whatever Apple product is coming up; be it the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S or the iPad 3, it better be worth it.
What is your opinion on this?
