  • Analyst Firm Predicts iPhone 5 to Be Made in Q3, Points Out Obvious



    Analysts at FBR Capital Markets are predicting Apple's latest installment of the "iconic smartphone" will be manufactured in the third fiscal quarter of 2011, and released later in the year.

    They are also reporting Charlie Sheen is still crazy.

    And the moon isn't composed of cheese.

    The report drops other bombshells, including the iPhone 5 will have have an 8-megapixel camera, and a single baseband communications chip that will work on both CDMA and GSM networks.

    They then assured their readers water is still wet, and reminded them to take a breath after finishing each sentence.

    Also, the iPhone 5 will sport the same dual-core A5 processor that debuted in the iPad2 and it'll support 1080p video playback.

    The analysts closed the story by thanking their "industry contacts" Google and Search for all the insider information they divulged.

    The only bit of information that hasn't already been plastered all over the web by FBR's "industry contacts" are the production numbers they give. And thats likely because they're estimating based on a roll of the dice. According to FBR Apple will produce 20 million iPhones in the third quarter, with 8 million being iPhone 5s.

    Congratulations on pointing out the obvious FBR.

      Your sarcasm is unwarranted, unwanted, not funny and ridiculously stupid. This is a news site not an editorial site. Idiot.

      Could you please ask them why Sour Cream has an expiration date, and why you park in a driveway and drive on a parkway?

      What's the difference between a bicycle? and why is a couch called a couch?
      what would a chair look like if our knees bent the other way?

      I also am looking forward to the iphone 5, and think i will let the
      4(S) (S)lide!

      In all seriousness, is it not about time for crapple to start retarding our iphone 4's so we get tired of the slow phones and rejoice about the "speed" of the new phone? Watch the updates.

      Think about it... Last year, we find apples protype 4 around this time... Apple also has a rep for releasing things yearly around the same time... I dont think it's far fetched to say that apple is either (a) keeping details as tight as ever or (b) apple is spreading rumors about a fall release so that it would keep attention off the spring, yearly, release... That's just my take. I have a feeling the 4S/5 is coming faster than we think

      This article was funny and sarcastic and all, but isn't that report more for people that don't follow Apple news? I mean, of course it's obvious to US, but probably not my grandmother.

      I don't like sarcasm either, but if you think Modmyi is a "news site", you should probably reevaluate who's the stupid one.

      I used to watch the Great Space Coaster as a kid, and they had a "news" section too. I just didn't take it so seriously.

      I thought that the Saturday nite live and the Muppets had news too! Just to be taken with a grain of salt. Shaken, not stirred

      The only difference between last year and this year for the release of the iphone 5 is a small natural disaster that disrupted the flow of parts. Just a thought. I hope i am wrong though.

      Geez guys, it's a support community that has grown large enough to hire writers for a news section... It's not primarily for news...
