quote: So two years after everyone else has LTE standard and fully functioning, Apple finally joins the fray... ..and they can't even get THAT right.
quote: I point is that Apple manipulates these "sell outs" for pre-orders. How do I know this? Simple. They never release the amount of said pre-orders. This is just for more hype on a lame-duck product to convince the simple-minded masses to purchase one.
quote: We shall find out the truth once and for all. I mean we already know but just to be 1,000% sure.
quote: My response is that you are talking out of your ass.
quote: Get over it.
quote: I go along with Horace at Aysymco and think his projection of around 6 million iPhones sold for the launch weekend is sound.
quote: Funny how you 'magically' know the HIGHEST analyst projection for iPhone 5 sales. You must indeed work for Apple PR.
quote: Meanwhile in the real world AllThings D offers a first week sales estimate for the iPhone 5 of 10 million.
quote: HIGHEST analyst projection
quote: zero evidence that Apple artificially restrains supply in order to create 'sold out' hype
quote: When you are in a hole stop digging.
quote: I hope that doesn't crush your ego too much.
quote: And yet, the iPhone 5 pre-orders have sold out.
quote: I think that's being a bit harsh. Some people just may prefer the iPhone.
quote: What it really boils down to is that by using this single Tx chain, Apple is able to support a ton of LTE bands (more space for PAs and fewer transceiver ports used on SVLTE for CDMA networks) and also do it without making the iPhone very large. Moving to an architecture that works with SVDO and SVLTE would require an additional transmit path and antenna, and incur a size and weight penalty.
quote: Allowing simultaneous voice/data on Verizon/Sprint would have resulted in increasing the size of the phone.
quote: He actually managed to put together all those technologies to just have an awesome setup which would take even an advance Wintel PC user a ton of time to put together, and yet still have to fiddle more even after .
