iPhone 4S is the Most Sold Among Carriers

Although many have their sights set on the iPhone 5, lets not forget the phone that many are using right this minute. We all know that the iPhone 4S would be a success but one tech analysis company has the data to back it up.

Canaccord Genuity says their research tells them that the iPhone 4S was the top selling smartphone on all three carriers (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T) in November. What’s more is that Apple’s devices among carriers have taken the top spot the entire year thus far. Samsung has been making strides with their products, coming in second most months but has yet to surpass the iPhone 4S.

Rumor Mills up and Running, iPhone 5 to feature Edge to Edge Screen

A Chinese manufacturer has the Apple rumor sites buzzing, although it’s clear that some Apple news sites will jump all over any story with the words “Apple” in it. Alibaba.com is responsible for iPhone leaks in the past and it looks like their at it again. Rumors are surfacing that the “iPhone 5G” will have an edge to edge display.

This information conflicts with an earlier report from analyst Peter Misek “We believe the likelihood of the iPhone 5 launch in September including LTE [Long-Term Evolution] is now remote” “According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ [Evolved High-Speed Packet Access] support.”

It looks as if we can only state the obvious and probable improvements but the Apple fans are all over the place with the name of the next iPhone.

White iPhone 4 Goes on Sale April 28

After almost a year of the original black iPhone 4 went on sale, Apple confirms that the elusive white iPhone 4 will finally hit the market on April 28. Apple states that the white iPhone 4 will be exactly the same as the original just in a slick white exterior.

The long delay was excused by Apple having more difficulty making the white iPhone 4 working and ready. It seems as though this may be a new pattern in color choice for Apple products, white or black iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The issue is now, does one who is capable sign-on for a white iPhone 5 or wait till later in the year for the iPhone 5?

iPhone 5 and iPhone Nano Rumor Overload

It’s been suspected for some time that Apple may be working on a lower-cost iPhone. This could be achieved by cheaper hardware and inner components without sacrificing the outer design and size. Apple Insider reports that Avian Securities has word that Apple is not only considering a low-cost iPhone but have it on roadmap. Some speculate that this alternate iPhone could hit the market late 2011 or early 2012.

The iPhone 5 is busy with rumors as well, the same security company claims that the iPhone 5 will start production in September while other sources in the far east suggest that production will start soon.  Sony CEO indicated that the 8-megapixel Sony Exmor R camera, Sony’s best smartphone camera, would be used in the iPhone 5.

Verizon Takes Nearly 13% of AT&T iPhone Users so far

When the iPhone was first available on Verizon, AT&T’s iPhone user-base went down about 3%. This was much lower than most had expected but it seems as though Verizon is slowly eating away at AT&T. A whopping 12.7% of AT&T iPhone users have now made there way over to Verizon.

This is largely do to AT&T customers waiting until their contract ends in-order to avoid steep early termination fees. Some may forget that the core reason for switching is to hopefully receive better cell coverage and less dropped calls. So far, Verizon’s network is holding strong, but for how long?
