As many know, yesterday began selling the iPhone in our country. Once again Apple has managed to mobilize hundreds of people, including several celebrities, to the dealers to the big evening sale of the new iPhone.
Unofficially it is said that the new iPhone has sold more units than its predecessor, which leaves us all with a question: What’s behind your success? Could it be for his new pair of cameras, dual-core processor or thousands of applications available? I think not and here show what I think is the secret behind the success of iPhone 2, and in general, most Apple products.
iPhone 4 Construction Quality
If there is something that Apple has carved out a reputation is built on the quality of their equipment. There have been many cases of Macs that resist drops many feet or, more recently, the iPhone 4 who survived a fall of 300 meters.
Lately though the build quality of Apple hardware has fallen (iMacs with defective GPU, the AntennaGate sounded, and something more personal, my MacBook has gone for repair twice in his birthday), the Apple brand has been linked to most of the population as a trusted, whose products are not usually cause problems.
Thus, the iPad inherits the reputation of Apple and one to buy a iPhone can be sure that you have the “Apple quality” and therefore unlikely to be a defective product.
Ease of use
Another factor influencing the success of Apple products is their ease of use. As an example I put the iconic “click wheel” of iPods: the most confusing controls music players used to play music, Apple came up with this new concept which, among other factors, drove sales of the iPod into the player musical excellence.
Having learned a product Apple sells more user friendly than one with a thousand functions cumbersome, in 2007 introduced the iPhone with iPhone OS (now IOS), which became a hit for the same reason that the iPod: while most other smartphones using Windows Mobile and Palm OS operating systems that were very full but nothing intuitive, Apple introduced a different concept which sacrificed so customization terminal to make it easy to use, that captivated thousands of people and introduced them to world of smartphones.
History repeated itself in 2010 with the presentation of the iPad. Although he could have provided Apple Mac OS X as many expected, but the Cupertino company ultimately decided by IOS. The reason is simple: there TabletPCs and had spent years in the market but had failed mainly because an operating system designed for conventional computers, which made them slow and difficult to use. In contrast, Apple’s tablet IOS promised to be fast, lightweight, with very good battery life and, especially, easy to use. Its ease of use made them become the best selling tablet so far and redefine the market for tablets. Now instead of using a conventional operating system like Windows or Linux, tablets manufacturers are opting for mobile operating systems like Android, webOS or Meego.
If there is something you can praise of Apple is its fantastic marketing team, thanks to which has created several gems of marketing. Apple commercials are made so that all the good teams are highlighted, in a way that seems “perfect” their equipment.
And not only is the advertising itself. Another thing Apple has done well to position their products in the media. Simply turn on the TV and watch a movie or American series to see the work that Apple has made entering the means: there are few movies / series where there is an Apple device, be it iPhone, Mac, iPhone or iPod.
Like on TV, Apple is very much on the Internet. Many sites are dedicated to reporting exclusively on Apple, and many more are also those who speak of the company but not exclusively. Also, Apple has a strong presence in social networks. As a result, many Internet users that are unfamiliar to most of the technology they learn the new releases from Apple as well as many other news that revolve around the company. This leads consequently to the last and most important point which I believe Apple products become successful.
Apple is ‘cool’ and AWESOME!
This is because most celebrities do not know whether or not sponsored by Apple using Apple products. And as the celebrity uses, many of their fans will too. This feeling of being ‘cool’ is what makes the iPhone 3G and even 3G still sold quite well having the hottest smartphone market at lower prices. History repeats itself with the iPhone 2: although there are and will better alternatives for the simple fact of having an apple in his back the will be more likely to be a “best-seller” than other tablets.
Thanks to these four factors, I feel that the iPhone and the iPad 3, 5 and iPhone, and the next iDispositivo be big hits. If anything Apple has taught us is that the success of a product is not in their presentations, but how to sell it. There is no point making a super tablet with lots of RAM, a processor and a thousand antics grand more if you do not know how to sell and attract consumers.
The iPad is by far the most popular tablet personal computer available today. Many competitors such as the Xoom have tried to take some of the market away from Apple, but they have been anything but successful for the most part. People love the iPads because they are convenient for doing computing work on the go, wherever you want to.
Recently, the iPad 2 has been released and many upgrades have come with the new version. The device is quite a bit thinner and lighter, but the screen size is actually the same as the original. There is one aspect of the iPad 2 that has people raving at the moment though, and this is the speed it of. The iPad 2 had a dual core processor, where its predecessor was only single core. This is essential for things like multitasking, and it provides an overall much smoother and cleaner experience when using the device. There are also two cameras on this new iPad, so if you are the type of person to take a lot of pictures, or if you like to do video chat, then you will definitely enjoy this awesome new feature.
As of now, iPad 2 accessories are just starting to hit the market like crazy. There are already many accessories available, but within the next few months there will sure be many more to come. Why not drop another $80 or so on cases, chargers, and other accessories if you have already spent the $500 on the iPad 2 itself, right? Keep an eye out for numerous ipad 2 accessories to be released in the very near future. You really can’t take advantage of the device without some important iPad 2 accessories.
Unfortunately, there have been some complaints from iPad 2 buyers since the product has been released though. They aren’t actually complaints however, its more about the annoyance that the iPad 2 is a bit too similar to the first iPad. These devices are quite expensive, and when people shell out around $500 for a new top of the line device, they expect it to be quite superior to the original. You may be interested in checking out some iPad 2 reviews to learn more about what other people have to say.
There are rumors that the iPad 2 is somewhat of a small stepping stone for the bigger update in the future, which will be the iPad 3. Some consumers are crazy about having the new, best performing products, and therefore they are already gossiping about the future generation of the iPad. It is speculated to be released sometime early in 2012, but some sources say it may even be sooner than that. No one but Apple knows when it will be coming though, so we will just have to wait and watch.
Ten applications that make magic in the iPad.
IWORK (U.S. $ 30, or $ 10 for Pages, Keynote or Numbers): Because you can not easily type in an iPad, it can not replace your laptop. But with this software, made by Apple, you will not need to run to your other computers to edit Microsoft Office files. Pages is an excellent application for review and export text files, the application numbers are good (and getting better) for spreadsheets, and Keynote is a useful complement to PowerPoint.
Recall that Apple has already announced that later this month, would be putting the iPad 2, with new advanced technology, while the rumor that iPad 3 launch in September, is becoming stronger among the most knowledgeable.
These rumors suggest that actually, Apple is planning cycle iPad acceleration off, the third generation model will arrive as early as this fall (September).
The rumor has come to life after John Gruber, Daring Fireball, publicly announced the new HP tablet (model TouchPad) would be the perfect kick for the upcoming release of third-generation iPad.
Gruber, who is ultimately responsible for this rumor, it has clarified that the trigger for the next iPad 3 was just a guess, and was not based on any real knowledge.
The Mac maker was helped by the reports that is slower in improving their products in the last platform. The report said Apple is using Intel chipset Calpella, for most of its current models, allowing you to “completely” to avoid the impact. “The sources said that because Apple products have high average selling prices Even if the company is slow in improving their products in the last platform, you will not see a significant impact on prices or gross margins, “said the report.”However, to Hewlett-Packard (HP) Acer and Dell, who rely heavily on the economic dimension, the new platform will help raise its ASP and therefore, these manufacturers will try to launch laptops with new platforms as soon as possible. “
The report follows an exclusive scoop that Apple Insider published on Tuesday, said the company Pros new MacBook is in production and on track for release in early March. Company anticipates that the reports are an overview of the new models come out in two weeks.
Intel, was released earlier this month that an error was discovered in a series of six sets of chipsets, called Cougar Point, which makes the performance of Serial ATA ports numbered 2 to 5, tend to degrade over time in extreme conditions. The issue applies to mobile and desktop processors, and does not affect SATA ports 0 and 1.Apenas a week after the mistake was revealed, Intel announced it had resumed shipping the chipsets for system configurations PC power. The company also said that the new version, with its support chip, will begin shipping the systems that were based on SATA ports 2 to 5 to mid-February. In addition, the company confirmed it will meet to begin shipping dual-core chipsets on 20 February.
