Apple’s latest iPhone probably would be the biggest leap since the launch of the original iPhone four years ago. In the age of mobile internet and apps, Apple has surpassed Nokia and Blackberry, its prominent contenders in the mobile industry. With Facetime , a feature supporting video calling on the latest iPhone with the highest resolution display gives it a high standard for mobile communication. Let’s have a look at how Apple’s iPhone is setting the bar for other smartphones.
While Apple has 3 million more users added to its existing 17 million users (in U.S) RIM has lost 1 million thus falling down from 19 million to 18. While Android with nearly 30 million users is in possession of the throne currently, other companies like Microsoft and Palm too have lost about 0.8 and 0.1 million users respectively.
While Apple is retaining its throne since its launch, certain rivals like Droids, Amazon, Motorola, etc are trying by all possible means to pull down the King from his throne. However Apple which has never been known for being succumbed has decided to give the counter attack to all its rivals in the form of iPad2.
