Our -- run we eradicate Mike Rose all joining us here they've been with us this hour to weigh in on -- -- are right.
My -- first tier city iPhone 5 later faster -- here.
Is it really getting -- user experiences as a reason to replace your old four for us.
I do you think it is I mean you're looking at a device that's almost 20% -- is 20% lighter than the -- -- -- which was already a very sleek phoning your hand.
Apple is going with the longer form factor the foreign screen trying to really.
Get a get fashion forward on the diversity of phone models that are out there right now there's a lot of different Smartphones out there from other vendors.
-- really wants to make the case that it's offering the most premium experience.
The LTE high speed networking was mentioned that's going to be a lot faster.
Battery life always a concern with these Smart devices Apple's claiming.
About eight hours of talk time -- browsing time on that LTD cellular network which is huge.
People have before in the -- -- know sometimes you can't you can't get through the day on your battery if you don't you know -- it.
And also now they're talking about I think the gaming performance the CPU.
-- camera has been improved -- and it's actually adding up panorama mode for for taking photographs it's built and so there's a lot of new features for for consumers to look at.
Yet Roger as we're talking right now we're getting more headlines on what's new about the camera and it would if we mentioned that panorama -- also eight megapixels.
What's your reaction what you're hearing so far on this phone -- you.
Elated disappoint and it.
Well I think that they met expectation and probably exceeded it just -- -- -- mean everybody expected almost all the subsystem to be upgraded.
And they were.
But the total package is looking pretty good so for example you could talk about the slightly longer screen and say well that about fashion but you can also -- -- listen.
With a form -- authority highly optimize there's not a whole lot you can do but one thing you could do.
-- give the user just a little bit more real estate in -- highly usable real estate that they can it used to enhance their their experience so.
I feel as if apple has done just about the right things up for example -- battery life is very important with the -- subsystems the radio.
Could be demanding the processor could be demanding but they've managed to.
Optimize all of that so that Barry rifles will be long.
You may not have to have a battery case an extra battery case to get you through the -- that means you can show people your beautiful -- -- as opposed to just having it.
Hidden in some big fat battery case so there's a lot of things they've done right here.
Any word on the price and we heard anything any any dollar figures on this sent.
Is the price.
-- -- and that's the group here I see somebody.
Doing some doing some investigation here.
Because you -- you -- Sampson and Google with this -- high speed forgy accessibility as well also is that we're the strategy comes and anyone and -- -- I as far as I don't know price is usually get those -- good that I might follow I -- -- that it -- an experiment that failed miserably Rhonda that was.
I think that.
I think the idea is that this is the premium market they're gonna stay in the premium market for now I think they may be going into the lesser market.
In for their ipads.
Ten but that right now they they and Samsung -- about 40% each of the market.
This plenty room.
It's not so much about market share though I think they'll gain some market share.
I think it's more about there they got a strong market presence in an expanding market.
And they do and a great job.
My mind is that think he's -- I mean I was with someone yesterday showed neither Samsung android phone they said they'd gone into the store to get night phone.
But this was smaller thinner cheaper they just thought it was at least -- -- there was a lot less money this with some news supposed to be an iPhone customer.
I think there's more back coming.
There's a lot of interesting dynamics in the resell market for the cell -- the carrier.
Outlets sometimes are pushing phones that get them.
More revenue you know the iPhone and -- it.
Is it is a challenge for carriers because they are.
Essentially paying 600 dollars for what consumers get -- -- for 200 dollars so they have to they have to back that -- -- between your contract.
So I mean there there is so much pent up demand for this -- I don't know about my fellow -- but every conversation I've had over the past two weeks.
Has begun with when is the iPhone 5 coming out OK so I don't think.
