Apple looks to try to reinvigorate sales
Q2 proved a rarity. Usually it was Apple, Inc. (
) who left analysts moderately bullish forecasts looking like silly bears. But in Q2 Apple saw the analysts scoring a win, as its sales
fell short of expectations
It hopes to right the ship with the iPhone 5, which according to numerous sources is rumored to be announced on Sept. 12. An October or late September launch will likely follow.
is already known
about the iPhone 5, Apple's sixth generation smartphone. It will pack
a bigger screen
, an LTE modem, more DRAM, and a slightly faster processor. But it offers much less improvements in the user interface department managing only
baby steps with iOS 6
As Google Inc. (
) begins to roll out devices with the super-slick
Android 4.1 "Jelly Bean"
on board, it remains to be seen whether Apple's modest hardware upgrades and bare-bones software updates are enough to keep up.

RE: Keep up with Android? What a joke.

While I am somewhat onboard with most of your comments, the last paragraph makes me think that you are Tony, just posting under a different name.
Just because more money is made on iphone apps does not make them better. I have yet to find anything that runs better on my wifes iphone than on my galaxy nexus, and with the small screen (and much lower resolution) that should not be hard. Most times I can get apps cheaper, since I have multiple sources - Amazon's app of the day is awesome, and they are just as smooth, if not better than my wife's phone.
I have more apps with more functionality for less money than what my wife has. The company is not making more money, but that just means I get more for my money, I don't care how much the company makes, as I don't own google or apple stock. I just want good value and apps that work.
I am not married to any one company, and when it is time to get a new phone in a year or so, I will look at what is all out there and make an informed decision.
Don't just spout off sheeple propaganda, as it makes you no better than the android fanboys.
