  • iPhone 5 launched – reaching India in november

    Posted on September 13th, 2012 Dimakh No comments

    The much hyped iPhone 5 has been launched by Tim Cook in a grand function in san francisco, but the overall impact seems to be tremendously diluted.

    We do not see any new fancy features or any new innovations.. All routine stuff but just in an upgraded version and a taller version.

    Below is a coverage from iPhone launch review – the first impressions

    By Edward C. Baig

    The new iPhone 5 has the same retina display as on its predecessor. But Apple finally upped the screen size to 4 inches, up from the 3.7-inch display that was on all its predecessors. That permits a fifth row of app icons on the home screen. It’s still a smaller screen than the display on many rival Android devices. But the extra real estate is welcome, just the same.

    Apple says the new device a little taller than its earlier models and is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever made — 18% thinner, in fact, than its immediate predecessor, the iPhonje 4S. And the iPhone 5 is one-fifth lighter than the 4S. It is made entirely of glass and aluminum.

    And yes — as had been rumored and as I had hoped — the iPhone 5 can tap into speedy wireless 4G LTE networks. Apple will be working in the U.S. with AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless, as well as several other carriers in Canada and overseas.

    Apple says users will get up to 8 hours of 3G talk time off its battery

    The new iPhone runs off a zippy A6 chip, Apple says, meaning you can launch photos, music, and various apps much quicker. I’m anxious to compare this to its predecessors.

    It has an improved iSight camera that Apple says increases performance in low light. Apple says it can capture pictures 40% faster than before. Apple’s Phil Schiller joked about the pictures you can take with the new camera: “Kids look happier.” (I’ll let you know if I’m happier after taking my own pix.) With the new phone, you can also capture panorama images. On stage, Apple showed a stunning 28-megapixels panoramic image of the Golden Gate Bridge.

    Apple also improved the front-facing FaceTime camera. And the phone has three microphones, and what the company says are better speakers. Apple has incorporated new “wideband audio” technology to bolster sound by filling up more of the frequency spectrum.

    Now a controversial topic: iPhone has used the same 30-pin connector that has been on the iPhone since 2003. Of course, there are now lots of other ways to connect — Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi syncing. And now Apple is evolving the connector to something called Lightning, playing off the name of Apple’s other emerging connector, Thunderbolt. The new connector is 80% smaller and Apple is working with Bose, JBL and others. But what of all the accessories you have that use the older connector, like those in your car. Apple is coming out with an adapter that would let you hook up those other devices. But this is a potential inconvenience, and it’s not yet known if Apple will throw in the adapter for free or charge for it. Either way, it’s just something else you have to worry about taking with youâ??and not losing.

    At the core of the new iPhone, of course, is the previously announced iOS 6 software upgrade. Apple is late to the party with turn-by-turn audio directions, a feature that has been on Android phones for a while. (Third-party developers have helped fill the void on the iPhone up to now). But better late than never, and the built-in Maps and directions in iOS 6 are very sweet. You can zoom in to get virtual photo-realistic tours of an area through Maps. During the event, Apple zoomed in on London’s Big Ben.

    IOS 6 made enhancements to Notification Center and Safari. Through iCloud Tabs, you can access webpages that were open on your computer back home. Among the new Mail features is the ability to make certain senders your VIPs, so you can easily access their mail amidst all the junk.

    I’m particularly high on another iOS 6 addition called Passbook, a repository for boarding passes, coupons and such. You can even display your boarding pass from the iPhone lock screen.

    With iOS 6 comes Shared Photo Streams. As the name suggests, it’s a way to share images with friends.

    Apple has also made improvements to Siri, letting you ask the phone’s chatty virtual assistant for sports scores, movie recommendations and to launch apps.

  • iPhone 5 launching soon may reach India early in October 2012

    Posted on September 6th, 2012 Dimakh No comments

    Apple today sent members of the media invites to an event in San Francisco next week, where the company is expected to unveil the next version of the iPhone. Just like its iPad reveal earlier this year, Apple is holding at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts Theater.

    iPhone 5 launchThe invite says only “It’s almost here,” with a shadowed “5″ underneath the September 12 date. The event will begin at 10 a.m. in San Francisco. Many bloggers and websites will cover the event with a live blog, so mark that time and keep watching out for updates and live coverage from various sites.

    Its also expected that the iPhone 5 device would go on sale nine days later on Friday, September 21 and may soon reach India in the month of October.

    We will also see an official launch of iOS 6 by Apple.

    Now that the launch of iPhone 5 has been almost officially declared by apple, Analyst Predicts 10M iPhone 5 Sales During First Week.

    Analysts have been predicting that the iPhone 5 could be one of Apple’s biggest product launches of all time. But in a note on Tuesday, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster, estimated that Apple could possibly sell up to 10 million iPhone 5 units in the first week.

    While the ship date for the next-gen phone has not been confirmed, Apple is expected to release it on Sept. 21, nine days after it’s announced.

    “We believe that if the 21st is the actual ship date, Apple could sell 6-10 million iPhone 5s in the final week of September barring supply issues,” Munster wrote.

    Each new iPhone model has logged stronger first weekend unit sales than the last. The iPhone 4S, for example, sold more than 4 million units in its first three days on the market, while the iPhone 4 sold 1.7 million, and the iPhone 3GS sold more than one million.

    Munster further estimated that Apple could sell between 26 million and 28 million total iPhones during the September quarter. This is higher than the current Wall Street expectation, which puts iPhone sales between 22 and 23 million units during the period.

    As Munster noted, Apple may be able to hit these high sales numbers as long as its supply chain can deliver. Reports have cropped up, however, that Sharp delayed plans to start shipping iPhone screens due to manufacturing difficulties.

  • The new iPad in india

    Posted on March 8th, 2012 Dimakh 1 comment

    The launch of a new device – a remodel of earlier iPad just termed as new iPad has been launched by Apple at an event. The much hyped launch turned out to be a not-so-surprising event and the crowd was left for “wanting more” . The new iPad just seems to be an upgraded version in terms of adapting to the new technology.

    The new iPad is priced at $499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64GB. And $629, $729, and $829 for 4G. It will be available on March 16th in the US and available for pre-order today. It will be available from March 23 for 32 other countries. The iPad 2 will continue to be sold for $399 in a 16GB flavor and $529 for a WiFi + 3G 16GB model. India still not is a preferred country for Apple and not sure the date of launch for iPad in India. The new iPad may take time to reach India but may be the iPad 2 price will drop by $100 or rupees 5000 in India. So this is a good indication for price in Indian rupees for iPad and a god time to buy the new iPad.

    The new high-resolution display runs at 2048×1536 at a pixel density of 264PPI. That’s 3.1M total pixels. The new display is powered by an A5X processor with improved quad-core graphics capabilities. The processor itself is dual-core.

    The new iPad maintains the current 10 hour battery life with 9 hours on 4G. It’s 9.4mm thick and weighs 1.4 pounds.

    There is also a brand new feature in the iPad, an iSight camera on the front and a new rear camera that runs at 5MP, with a backside illuminated sensor, 5 element lens and a hybrid IR filter. It looks to be the same camera equipment shipped in the iPhone 4S, aside from the slightly lower resolution sensor. This allows the new iPad to record HD movies at 1080P.

    The new iPad also has quad-core LTE 4G capabilities, allowing for much faster network access and download speeds. The new chip is dual-mode and includes 3G HSPA+ for up to 21Mbps, and dual-carrier HSDPA for up to 42Mbps. But we have to wait and see when we get 4G in India

  • iPad HD or iPad 3 – what will it be called

    Posted on March 6th, 2012 Dimakh No comments

    As the excitement for the launch of next generation of iPad hypes. We have a new speculation of what would be the actual name of the new version of iPad. Just a few hours before the official launch we have started getting rumors that iPad3 will not be actually called as iPad 3 but will now be called as iPad HD.

    Below is a fresh posting from the blog of computer world. This covers a lot of information and gives us an insight to the launch scheduled for March 7 2012.

    So sit back and read. All the information comes from – http://blogs.computerworld.com/19834/the_complete_apple_ipad_3_ipad_hd_pre_launch_guide

    Apple has already shipped 55 million iPads, and this seems set to grow exponentially on the release of the new SKUs. Nearly one-third of mobile Web users told ad network inMobi that they intend purchasing Apple’s third-generation iPad. 44 percent of these wouldn’t even consider another brand of tablet. (I won’t dwell on the competition in this space being toast).“The analysts” already expect Apple to shift its 100 millionth tablet this year. Oh, and it’s pretty likely there won’t be enough of the new device to go round, as display production has been more of a problem than expected.
    What’s it gonna be called?
    The jury’s out, but the intensity and frequency of most recent speculation makes me think it likely this release will be dubbed the “‘iPad HD’. This leaves the door open for Apple to offer versions of its existing iPad 2 (at lower price points) while also providing a faster, more graphically intense iPad HD, twinning this with professional apps, such as, oh, I don’t know: Microsoft Office and Final Cut Mobile, perhaps? Oh, and the iPad HD seems set to make an even bigger dent in corporate America.
    What will we get?
    The potential features of the device are already much-traveled ground for bloggers, analysts and media outlets large and small. Here’s what you can definitely expect:
    – A faster processor, possibly the A5X, rather than the quad-core A6 chipI’d been expecting.
    – A better screen. A so-called Retina Display capable of full 1,080HD. Purty. (And offering 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, according to MacRumors).
    – A super camera: After all, you want a decent-quality HD-savvy 8MP camera if you’re going to make nice, crisp HD video on your iPad HD. Does anyone remember Flip?
    – Graphics to die for. Well maybe not die for. Feel pretty pleased with, I guess. To enjoy, I suppose. But definitely better — thanks to new graphics advances from Imagination.
    Yeah, but what about 4G?
    I know most people reading this are in the US, and I recognize that in some small but vocal areas of the US 4G (LTE) networks are already being deployed by some carriers. LTE is also available in some key external markets, but as I’ve said before, it isn’t yet a universal commonplace the world over.
    A recent 9to5Mac report claimed that Apple intends offering three varieties of the device, suggesting this means LTE-enabled iPads will be made available, but don’t buy 4G on strength of that — check the deployment situation in those places you are likely to use your shiny, hopefully rubber-clad new Apple tablet. You may not need it (yet).
    LTE will be far more widely available at the end of 2012, beginning of 2013. This means that, despite its promise, LTE support shouldn’t be seen as a deal-breaker, yet.
    Will it be thinner, or thicker?
    I don’t know. All the reports I’ve seen are equivocal. I can imagine the LTE model might demand the iPad be a little thicker (we’re talking in millimeters), not just for the LTE radio but also for the additional battery life required to run 4G. This could also mean 4G iPad users may complain of comparatively poor battery life (though only in comparison to non-LTE iPads). Apple may deploy a Thunderbolt connection in this new iPad.
    Will it support NFC?
    I don’t see huge immediate purpose in such support being enabled at this time. In future I can imagine it, in order that retailers be able to use their iPads to take payments from NFC-enabled devices. Take a look at this solution from Square to get an idea of how this might work. It is possible NFC support will be built-in, though, as the company attempts to seed the market with potential payment terminals pending introduction of the iPhone 5. (Take a look at this info graphic for a few ideas of why NFC may matter).
    Siri?
    Siri is in beta. Siri is in beta. Siri is in beta. Just ask Siri — it will tell you (probably, if the servers are available).
    This means:
    • It will be improved in future.
    • That it doesn’t always deliver.
    • That it is constantly learning.
    I’m expecting wider support for local searches to be introduced, perhaps in conjunction with the iPad launch. I’m also predicting a new version of iTunes will appear magically in the next hours (or at some point prior to when the device hits the shops if there’s a slight delay) to support the new iPad and to implement other enhancements in Apple’s world-leading intelligent assistant. Drop me a line when it appears.
    I’d certainly like Siri to be an element to the new release. Though as I often say during those many laugh-a-minute dinner parties I’m so constantly invited to, “If wishes were stars, the night would be brighter than the day“.
    Apple TV
    An Apple TV? Probably. An Apple television? Not yet.

  • ipad 3 in india

    Posted on March 4th, 2012 Dimakh No comments

    iPad 3 is all set to launch on march 7 2012. We will get to know the launch date for India only after a week from the official release. India is now a growing and strong market of all apple products including ipads and iphones.

    Apple Inc’s next iPad, expected to go on sale in March, will sport a high-definition screen, run a faster processor and work with next-generation wireless networks, according to three people familiar with the product.

    The company’s manufacturing partners in Asia started ramping up production of the iPad 3 this month and plan to reach full volumes by February, said one of the people, who asked not to be named because the details aren’t public. The tablet will use a quad-core chip, an enhancement that lets users jump more quickly between applications, two of the people said.
