Thread: iPhone 5 Prototypes Secretly being Tested by Wireless Carriers

  1. #21
    I love the hype. Kinda like what will the next model of a sports car look like and what engine will it have. You get all these spy shots of a mached up test mule. Then it is release at the big auto shows. It is just exciting.

    I think they should pick random people from all over the world to test it(me) lol
    And if they can keep it a secret then they get to keep an original ip5 when out...would be nice but never happen
    Wonder how long it would be a secret for

    The secrecy builds suspense, which equals consumer curiosity and spending. Apple has mastered this tactic. Not to mention the hush hush nature gives them a brief head start on copy cats like the Galaxy series :]

    No, I think the secrecy is so that the current iPhone 4 sales won't take an instant hit. If people have no knowledge of what the new phone will have or when it will be released, they will be more inclined to just get the current model.

    Competitors could copy Apple's technology, samsung as you probably know has been sued for "allegedly " copying Apple's tech.

What on earth COULD happen if specs were leaked? Specs from other phones are leaked weeks/months in advance all the time/ What's the big deal?

    Apple is very stupid
    No, they aren't. Apple is one of the fastest growing companies in America. They know what they're doing.

    The body changes are completely pointless ?

    fastest growing? they been growing since the late 70's/80's... they just took off in the past decade is all b/c of the mp3 boom. if they weren't innovative w/ the ipod and say ppl like the creative nomad better or something... apple wouldn't be where they are now imho.

    No, it's people that get on national television and say they will buy whatever apple puts on the shelf.
    I love my apple products cuz they work for me not because of the hype surrounding them lol

    It is absolutely amazing and crazy how much hype and hysteria is built up over a cell phone. Steve Jobs is a marketing genius! Lockboxe's, secret cases, and all of this crap is expertly done by Apple simply to build hype, and it works!
