The iPhone 5 release date is right around the corner, creating a new buzz for the Apple gadgets. But is the iPhone 5 going to be welcomed as much as past iPhones? Or is it possible that other carriers are going to leave the iPhone behind with their latest additions to the market?
According to CNET, there are five strong reasons that consumers should already stay away from the iPhone 4. There have been numerous problems with the iPhone 4 since its release, and we have touched on quite a few of them here at the Yahoo! Contributor Network. The one that received the most coverage was the antenna problem, but dropped calls, a slow network, and limited upgrades have also worked against the latest Apple product.
CNET also already noted that there are two smart phones on the market right now that are just as good or better than the iPhone 4, and these devices are options new consumers to the world of smart phones need to explore. Those are the EVO 4G on the Sprint network and the HTC Droid Incredible over on the Verizon network. Both phones have received very high marks recently, and are creating a huge customer base that has been frustrated with recent iPhones.
Maybe the biggest problem for Apple and their line of iPhones has been the AT&T network, and how it has let down many users. Each new iPhone has had problems with AT&T, and it has soured quite a few users with the Apple line of products. The answer for Apple was pretty simple: to get their products on to a new carrier, and with a new agreement between Apple and Verizon, iPhone fans are about to have the opportunity to leave AT&T behind. Watch out, though, because AT&T has just raised their early termination fee to an obscene $325.
As for the iPhone 5 release date, June of 2011 is the rumored drop zone for the new product, creating a lot of buzz about what is on the horizon for Apple.
The problem, though, is that this could really harm sales of the iPhone 4, and it is definitely a reason Apple has been relatively quiet when it comes to pinning down that premiere. It hasnt stopped the rumors, though, as well as what is expected to be included in the iPhone 5 to get people to buy it.
