The Best iPhone Today Money Can Buy :iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5C

I

Its been a a tale of two Tech Giants competeing for Consumer Mindspace as BlackBerry has agreed to go private in a $US4.7 billion dealwith Fairfax Holdings Limited. The deal won’t go through for a few more weeks, and BlackBerry can still accept offers from someone else. 

The news comes on the same day Apple, the company credited for the disruption of the mobile device industry that helped cause BlackBerry’s downfall, posted record opening weekend sales for its new iPhones. Apple sold 9 million of them. 

These  9 million iPhones which have been sold in the lat week  are a mix of both models, the top-tier iPhone 5S and the cheaper plastic iPhone 5C. 

But even if most iPhones sold were the cheaper model, Apple brought in at least $US5 billion in revenue from its iPhone business last weekend. And that’s being conservative. So, in short, Apple generated more revenue from iPhone sales last weekend than all of BlackBerry will likely sell for.!

iPhone 5S release date, news and rumours | News | TechRadar: The iPhone 5 may only be a few months old, but we're already hearing information about a successor, which may be known as the iPhone 5S in keeping with Apple's naming convention.

According to Telegraph   Apple  is said to be looking 'to release iPhone 5S in August'

Apple plans to release the iPhone 5S in August and could release new iPads as soon as next month,

Japanese blog Macotakara reports (via AppleInsider) that Foxconn is ready to ramp up production on iPhone 5S and that it would be built on the same production lines that currently build the iPhone 5. 


Sources familiar with the company's plans told the tech site, iMore that the iPhone 5S will feature the same basic design as its predecessor, but will sport a more advanced processor and improved camera.Apple  is also also rumored to have a fingerprint sensor on the home button and improved flash for the rear camera. 


According to  ibntimes canada Apple may launch the next generation of iPads in April and the successor of iPhone 5 in August, according to a report by iMore.


Nevertheless, it's more likely that the iPhone 5S will hit stores in the latter part of 2013, following the trend set by the iPhone 5 and 4S. It's even possible that Apple will skip the iPhone 5S and hop right on to the iPhone 6.

"15 Million iPhone 5s " To be Available by Sept

iPhone 5 Features : Speculation and Rumors
Source: StatCounter Global Stats - Mobile OS Market Share;
This Interactive  chart  from stats counter shows the Global marketshare " Across the Globe"  for the last 18 months.Note how " the iOS  market peaked during January,2011 with approx 25% marketshare and seems to be plateauing in May-June . Note on the Other Hand"  Android's peaking marketshare from 3%  during May,2010 to almost 18% in May 2011, which is a growth of " 15% in the last twelve months.


Apple has placed an order for 15 million iPhone 5s to ship in September to netbook-maker Pegatron Technologies, a supplier, according to DigiTimes sources.

Taiwan-based notebook maker Pegatron Technology is estimated to have landed orders for 15 million iPhone 5s (iPhone 4S) from Apple and is set to start shipping in September of 2011, according to sources from upstream component makers. In response, Pegatron declined to comment about its cooperation with clients.

Due to its cooperation with Apple for iPhone 4, Pegatron, in 2010, significantly expanded its plants, human power and equipment aiming satisfy the orders for 10 million CDMA iPhone 4s; however, since the Apple's CDMA iPhone 4 sales were lower than expected in the first quarter of 2011, Pegatron shipped less than four million CDMA iPhone 4s, causing the company's utilization rate to drop to only 50% with its gross margin also drop to 1.8% in the quarter.

The sources also said that the iPhone 5 isn't very different from the iPhone 4. Pegatron is a big Apple supplier, and worked with them on the iPhone 4, which allowed them to expand their plants. Businessinsider has a very interesting take on  about how Apple uses its cash to help its suppliers expand plant and equipment, and get exclusivity and discounts on components in exchange

"When new component technologies (touchscreens, chips, LED displays) first come out, they are very expensive to produce, and building a factory that can produce them in mass quantities is even more expensive. Oftentimes, the upfront capital expenditure can be so huge and the margins are small enough (and shrink over time as the component is rapidly commoditized) that the companies who would build these factories cannot raise sufficient investment capital to cover the costs."

What Apple does is use its cash hoard to pay for the construction cost (or a significant fraction of it) of the factory in exchange for exclusive rights to the output production of the factory for a set period of time (maybe 6 - 36 months),
