Apple's iPhone Monster down the years: infographic

Asymco recently featured a report on how the iPhone 5 is different from the other iPhones iPhone 4s, iphone 3g, iphone i3gs and how does this model differentiate from the iPhone 5 which has been dubbed as the FASTEST SELLING CONSUMER ELECTRONICS  item.
Technology Companies these days “ focus more on “ adding value to their products  and tweaking it rather than launching a new product.There are numerous incentives for making products better but few incentives to re-directing improvements away from the prevailing basis of competition.

 Companies like Apple know that “ a successful product” needs to be reinvented time and again. Last October when the iPhone 5 was expected, iPhone played down its features and decided to disappoint markets, rather than play to the Gallery and launch the iPhone 5. 
For  Apple, the iPhone is a  Frankenstein Monster which it has created and. Tim Cook  knows that “ it would be difficult to replicate the iPhone success . The one thing Apple knows to do, which no other Tech companies have managed to do  is the art of launching a old product in a new version. The features, functionalities, add ons, compatibility, increasing processor speed and  Camera resolution  of iPhone 5 makes it a totally new iPhone.. and the new iPhone 5 is probably the launch of Apple 3.0 ( considering iPod. phone and ipad as Apple2.0 products)

Samsung, Apple Face Ban in South Korea

Apple and Samsung have been ordered to stop selling some smartphones and tablet computers in South Korea and pay damages after a court ruled they each infringed the other’s patents.

Samsung, the world’s largest mobile phone maker, infringed one Apple patent related to a “bounce-back” touchscreen feature, it didn’t copy the design of the iPhone, the court said.

The companies have sued each other on four continents since April, accusing each other of copying products, design and technology as they battle for dominance of a smartphone market estimated to be worth $219 billion.
The sales bans imposed by the court in Seoul don’t cover Apple’s iPhone 4S, its newest iPad, or Samsung’s latest products including the Galaxy SIII phone, all of which were released after the lawsuits were filed.

Based on numerous news reports pointing to a September launch of the iPhone 5, Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimates that Apple will sell 26 million to 28 million devices overall. 

iPhone 5 could hit 10M units sold in September, analyst says | Apple - CNET News: "Should Apple launch its fifth version of the iPhone in September, the company is likely to sell 6 million to 10 million of those devices in the last 10 days of the month, according to an analyst.

Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimated that Apple will sell 26 million to 28 million devices overall in its September quarter. That projection is well ahead of current estimates, which account for slowing iPhone sales and roughly 22 million to 23 million units in the quarter."

For Apple, a September launch would allow it to top Wall Street estimates. In recent quarters, Apple fell short of projections even though it still has raked in tons of cash.
In the big picture, the iPhone 5 timing of units isn't that big a deal -- unless you hold Apple shares. Munster noted that he expects the iPhone 5 to be "the largest consumer electronics product upgrade in history."

 Horace Dideu of Asymco recently posted a  chart on  how iPhone generation ranked in terms of  Sales History

The 3G easily outsold the original iPhone. In fact, it sold nearly four times as many.
The 3GS also handily beat the 3G+original total by a factor of 1.6
The 4 also beat the 3GS+3G+original. As the 4 may continue to sell into the future, the beat will only grow larger.
The 4S is only half way through beating  the 4+3GS+3G+original

As businessinsider writes , The big question for Apple: Is this is a short term jolt driven by the iPhone 4S which came out in October, or is it a long term trend?

iPhone 4S Orders Up By 67%, From Any Previous Single Day Orders

For those of you who thought that ; Iphone 4S , could not emulate the success of first time  iPhone Launch. Take a Bow !! Apple just smacked in the face any theories of an iPhone slowdown, announcing that pre-orders of its iPhone 4S have topped one million in a single day. This is up over 67 percent from their previous single day pre-order record of 600,000 held by iPhone 4.

According to an August 2011 Chitika survey, the iPhone accounts for 76% of all AT&T customers’ phones, and 24% of Verizon customers’ phones. But the news isn’t all good for our beloved iPhone – A July 2011 Nielsen survey showed that the Android operating system accounted for 40% of all smartphone operating systems, while Apple iOS only accounted for 28%. Despite this, the money still flows in,with the iPhone capturing nearly 50% of all phone profits for the past year.

Within the first 24 hours, presales for the 4S have surpassed one million, a record high. As a result, Apple’s stock has shot up, and some analysts believe that sales will top 23 million by the end of the year, and that number could go up if Apple is able to make a deal with China Mobile to carry iPhones. China Mobile is the world’s largest mobile phone company..
