The Feasibility of Changing Mobile Phones Frequently

Jun 25, 2008
With people anticipating the next generation of the popular iPhone, Steve Jobbs is set to announce the release of the newer installment to the iPhone line tomorrow at Apple's Worldwide Developer's conference. The new generation iPhone has been rumored to have 3G capability along with a thinner footpront that is quite nice due to the bulkiness of its predecessor. The new iPhone is set to be released first in Europe and O2 has signed a contract to be the sole distributor of the phone.

Apple also aims to be a bit more strict with regards to having people unlocking their iPhones for use with another provider. They have shown signals that they would be offering contracts that binds users onto a carrier that is locked for a specified timeframe.

One more competitor for the iPhone, the cellphone has a dual interface (touch screen for most tasks and a keypad for SMS) that allows a fell of a more standard cellular phone while having the same touch screen as the iPhone. You can use your fingers or the stylus to move to and fro applications as you browse and switch in between tasks. It also has a micro-sd card slot for memory requiremnts which allows mroe data to be stored onto your phone. Imagine being able to browse between 20 picture in the photo gallery to the 2 megapixel camera that has 2X digital zoom and a small built-in xenon flash that allows quality pictures. It has the makings of a iPhone competitor by design.

Another model, the HTC Touch Cruise does away with the keypad but sports a bigger display with 2.8″ of TFT screen area. With an integrated scroll key built into the 5-way navigation key, it allows better function.

Sporting the same features as the iPhone with it's touch screen and innovative applications, this may truly be the best of the best competitor that would take a bite out of Apple's share of the cellular phone market. The phone features a customizable home screen (totally void in all other phones in the same class) and many applications from Sprint that adds more function to the older and more expensive LG Prada - F480 which had a smaller screen. iPhone has created a whole distinct niche in the cellular phone industry with the release of the iPhone and cellular manufacturers have been trying to find a way of getting a bit of the market it has. Though initially a flop, the iPhone still managed to top most people's want lists and continues to do so, just hope the newer version can keep its hold on the market share.

T-Mobile has filed a lawsuit against Starbucks Coffee which has been using their service as part of their free customer service. In efforts to boost numbers of patrons, Starbucks has been offering free WiFi access to all customers which brought in office workers in droves with the knowledge that they could still keep tabs on the office on their breaks. T-Mobile argues that they had a license agreement to provide WiFi access for all US branches of Starbucks without the addition of the free WiFi access offer, that has taxed the mobile provider heavily in terms of bandwidth.

The suiot comes when T-Mobile learns that they would be replaced with provider AT&T at the end of the year when their service agreement with Starbucks expires. They are claiming that the free service fvor customers was not part of their service agreement but was restricted to office use only. What is to come out of the wranglings of the two companies is yet to be seen as they conduct negotiations and talks to resolve the issue.
