Yesterday, I watched in horror, as Gizmodo posted the above video of an iPhone being used, with a hammer of all things, to crack a nut on!
What looked, at first, to be an utterly nutty thing to do, of course, was nothing more than a demonstration of Buff Labs new protective, anti-shock, coating that gives devices like the iPhone the equivalent of an armor suit, and this is the kind of thing that I would surely hope that Apple would, hopefully, add to the next iPhone, which, by the way, some are saying will be the ".... Will Be The Biggest Smartphone Release Of All Time."
As Bill Shope at Goldman Sachs, and also reported by Business Insider noted :
"Apple is ready to release a new iPhone (he calls it the iPhone 5) in the September-October time frame, and Shope says,"the iPhone 5 launch is likely to be one of the most important smartphone product cycles we’ve seen to date."
He's right. Everything is set up for Apple to have the biggest smartphone release of all time. It will be on more carriers than ever. It will probably release a phone that runs on LTE, the high-speed wireless network. It will probably get a hardware refresh making it look brand spanking new."
In conclusion, I too have the sneaky, gut feeling that Bill Shope is right on the money, and that the next iPhone, or whatever it's called, will indeed be one hell of a dozy of a phone, and one that will have the competition quivering in their tracks, with a larger screen,and quite possibly employing the use of liquid metal, an incredible material with some pretty incredible qualities.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this cloudy Thursday, April 19, 2012
