Competition Awaiting Apple iPhone 5

February 29, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

A lot has happened since the birth of the iconic iPhone. The smartphone industry has evolved, with more manufacturers and millions of customers loving or hating them. As people’s attitudes have changed, so have their needs.

The original iPhone won over many hearts back in 2007, but will the newest iPhone, the iPhone 5 will be successful in the same way?

There is no reason why it should fail. But the battle will be tougher than ever for Apple, with strong competition with the tags of Android, larger screen, quad core chip, LTE, and of course, the new Windows Phone.

Android has had a blast last year, and it is getting bigger and better. MWC 2012 is seeing a whole lot of Android smartphones that would lure customers, some with four cores, like the HTC One X and the LG Optimus 4X. But concerns of battery life prevail.

Availability of bigger screens is one advantage of Android devices, as compared to the 3.5 inch screen of the Apple smartphone. iPhone users also expect the next gen smartphone to sport a bigger screen.

LTE has been left out as well, but the chipsets might soon make it to iPhones, with smaller size and more power efficiency.

And, we should mention the potential competition the Nokia/Microsoft team up would give Apple. Windows Phone is Nokia’s revival plan in the smartphone space.

It is expected to work wonders and if it does, there’s another rival for Apple.

Back to iPhone; word has it that Apple may redesign some of the internal components of the next iPhone to allow for larger batteries. Apple of course is silent, as everyone else is all talk about a fall launch of the iPhone 5.
