Buyers face Apple iPhone 5 shipping delays

Apple fans already face a wait of up to three weeks for an iPhone 5, it emerged today, as pre-orders opened to huge demand.

By

networks and Apple began taking orders this morning, but appear to be unable to cope with the rush.

Buyers of the 32GB model face a wait of "2-3 weeks", according to the UK Apple store. The 16GB and 64GB versions will be dispatched in two weeks, it says.

All models are supposed to be available from next Friday, 21 September.

It follows claims that Apple faced a shortage of new, taller screens for the iPhone 5 because of slow production at Sharp, one of its major suppliers. The Wall Street Jounal said Sharp had only just begun shipping screens to Apple's Chinese assembly lines earlier this week after difficulties at a key LCD plant.

O2, Britain's second largest operator, also appeared unready to meet demand. While 3, Orange, T-Mobile and Vodafone began taking pre-orders as soon as they were allowed by Apple, O2 batted away requests and criticism from frustrated customers with promises it would publish its iPhone 5 price plans "later today".

The delay is an embarrassment to O2, which must already contend with the fact that EE, Everything Everywhere's new 4G network, will be the only British network compatible with the iPhone 5's faster mobile internet technology.

Telegraph sources said Apple's 4G plans show it will use the iPhone 5 to mount a challenge to its main rival, Samsung, on the Korean company’s home turf.

The model of Apple’s iPhone 5 aimed at Europe includes just one band that can use some European 4G networks, and in the UK is unlikely to ever be compatible with Vodafone and O2’s 4G networks when they are launched next year.

By contrast, the new iPhone includes both the 850MHz and the 2100MHz, which are key for a phone’s success in the smaller markets of Japan and South Korea.

Sources close to the mobile networks said Apple had made the decision to use the 1800MHz and 850MHz 4G bands to allow it to mount a serious campaign against dominant players such as Samsung in their home markets.

They claimed that only the next model of the iPhone would offer 4G frequencies that would be useful for Europe-wide usage. Without the crucial 800MHz frequency, 4G services will be largely unavailable on the iPhone 5 in UK rural areas.

The UK market could suffer stock shortages of the iPhone 5 too, as devices are shipped to the USA and the Far East.

A typical European 4G phone offers the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2600MHz. Samsung and HTC phones already use chipsets that can use these more popular 4G brands, and Stefan Zehle of analysts Coleago said he expected a slightly updated iPhone to arrive as soon as within the next six months.

“Networks are desperate to offload data onto their new and empty 4G networks, and the iPhone users are often the heaviest data users so they’re the most pressing cases.”

He added that any bid to take on Samsung in Korea would be “a hugely expensive PR exercise”, because it concentrated on a smaller market than the 360 million phone buyers in the EU.

“In a way, too, they’re helping Samsung by not offering a credible rival in Europe, Africa and Russia,” he said.

Apple announced the iPhone 5, its first 4G phone, at an event in San Francisco last night. Showing off the new smartphone, Phil Schiller, Apple's marketing chief said: "We've updated every aspect of iPhone 5."

The new handset is18 per cent thinner and 20 per cent lighter than the iPhone 4S but runs twice as fast, with graphics that are twice as fast, thanks to a new processor, said Schiller.

Apple has also upgraded the camera in the iPhone to include new features such as a lowlight mode and a panorama feature.

LG Optimus L9 saunters through FCC, asks for a Martini

LG Optimus L9 saunters through FCC, asks for martini afterward
LG's latest L-series smartphone, the Optimus L9, has just breezed (elegantly) through the FCC's radio frequency trial-by-screwdriver. The dinner-jacket-white clad Android smartphone is part of the "L-Style design philosophy" from the Korean maker, which emphasizes budget panache over brute performance. As such, it's a handsome but plasticky device, with a 4.7-inch IPS screen, ICS, qtranslator language app, dual-core 1GHz CPU, 1GB of RAM, 2,150mAh battery and 5-megapixel shooter. Vodafone in Europeshowed the price as €340 unsubsidized or €50 on contract, but a member of the L-series family has yet to cross the pond. However, a surprise peek of its Optimus L7 sibling as US Cellular's upcoming Splendor shows there's some hope for a stateside cameo.

Meg Whitman says HP has to 'offer a smartphone'

Meg Whitman says HP has to 'offer a smartphone'
HP bet big on the smartphone world when it purchased Palm, but the company fell flat on its face and webOS failed to take off. The reasons for the failure are numerous, but the new CEO Meg Whitman is smart enough to realize it can't simply abandon the market entirely. In an interview with Fox Business, she said that HP "ultimately has to offer a smartphone." Though she was willing to acknowledge that the company is "working on this," she would not divulge too many details about its mobile plans. Whether or not webOS may rise from the ashes as a largely community-powered platform remains to be seen, but we wouldn't be shocked to see HP pivot towards its longtime partner Microsoft, and release a Windows Phone 8 device. Perhaps the best glimmer of hope for the former Palm system was Meg's focus on developing markets. She rightly points out that, in some parts of the world, the first and only "computer" a person may own is a smartphone -- and reaching that audience is essential to Hewlett-Packard's success. Going back to the webOS well (with its open source support) would allow the company to save a few dollars on the cost of a new handset. Check out the video after the break for the full quotes in context.

HTC Windows Phone 8 Specs Leak Online


More rumours have emerged about a potential Windows Phone 8 device from HTC, ahead of a press event which the Taiwanese manufacturer has scheduled for 19 September.
A prominent user on the XDA developers forum, identified only by the username ‘Football’, has posted a image of what purports to be a list of specs for an upcoming HTC Windows Phone device on Twitter. The graphic accompanying the image describes a device with a 4.3-inch display, dual-core, 1.3GHz processor and 8 megapixel camera.
Details of a rumoured trio of Windows Phone 8 devices from HTC have surfaced on the web in the recent past, with the handsets in question reportedly codenamed the Rio, Zenith and Accord. Further rumours emerged last week suggesting that the mid-range device of the three would be called the HTC 8S, suggesting that HTC may be following the same naming conventions that resulted in the One series, leading to speculation that other devices may be called the 8X and 8V.
Other details in the specs list accompanying the most recent leak suggest that the upcoming handset will have Beats Audio sound enhancement technology, feature a microSIM, and 1080p video recording for both front and rear cameras.
Rumours have also emerged suggesting that HTC may be planning a follow up to its Flyer tablet, possibly going into direct competition with the Google Nexus 7 and iPad Mini.

Nokia Flame and Nokia Zeal WP8 Handsets Waiting in the Wings?


Last week saw the launch of the new Nokia 820 and 920, the Finnish company’s first phones to feature Microsoft’s new Windows Phone 8 operating system, however if new reports are to be believed, it may have another pair waiting in the wings.
Fans of Nokia’s Lumia range will be aware that there are four phones currently available – the Lumia 800 and Lumia 900 at the top of the range, and the Lumia 610 and 710 at the bottom.
The new 820 and 920 obviously replace the 800 and 900, so where are the replacements to the 610 and 710?
According to TheVerge, two devices, codenamed Flame and Zeal are in the works, and will be priced at the lower-end of the scale; so could these be the Lumia 620 and 720?
The Flame is rumoured to have a 4-inch screen, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 5 megapixel camera, while the 4GB of internal memory may be increased with the addition of a microSD card.
Nokia’s Zeal is a step up from the Flame, with a rumoured 4.3-inch screen and 8GB of internal memory, but the same 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a microSD card slot.
Nokia appears to be staggering the release of its new Windows Phone 8 handsets, just like it did with its Windows Phone 7 devices. The Lumia 800 and and Lumia 710 were launched during Nokia World in October last year, while the Lumia 900 – for the UK at least – and the Lumia 610 were made official during Mobile World Congress in February this year.
The report says the Flame and the Zeal will be launched in early 2013, so Nokia could be planning a repeat of the above schedule, and we’ll see the pair during Mobile World Congress around February or March.

difference between 3G vs 4G - What are the Benefits?


The UK’s first 4G LTE network has been announced, signalling the beginning of the roll-out of faster mobile data services.
Rebranding itself as EE, the firm formerly known as Everything Everywhere (an amalgamation between Orange and T-Mobile) has unveiled its plans to bring a 4G service to Britain at an event at London’s Science Museum this morning. The newly named company will also be launching a fibre-optic broadband service along with its 4G  mobile network.
While 4G LTE is an evolution of existing 3G networks it offers a faster service which can have marked differences on that which preceded it. The speed at which a mobile device can communicate with its related network and download or upload data is increased greatly when connected to 4G LTE and today’s announcement could see the streaming of HD video and other data-heavy uses becoming much easier.
Currently, much UK network coverage uses HSPA+, one of the latest versions of the technologies which are collectively known as 3G. HSPA+ has a theoretical maximum download speed of 21Mbps, but actual speeds experienced by mobile users connected to the network are much lower, with 2.1Mbps being the UK average.
However, several networks such as O2 and Vodafone have rolled out limited services of an even later 3G technology known as DC-HSPA which can achieve theoretical speeds of up to 42Mbps, depending on the network. While these speeds are again theoretical, it is likely that users have experienced speeds faster than they would have with the earlier HSPA+ networks.
Today’s announcement from EE will see faster speeds being made available to UK mobile users. Olaf Swantee, CEO of EE, told the assembled crowd at the Science Museum: “London will be the first major European city to be covered by 4G.
“We plan to have 4G services available to 20 million in the UK. The EE network will cover 70 per cent by 2013, 90 per cent of UK by 2014.”
We’ve compiled the speeds at which current UK 3G networks perform and compared them to the service EE has confirmed will be available with its new 4G LTE network.

Samsung Galaxy Note II makes first FCC appearance, variant lacks US-friendly LTE bands


Galaxy Note II makes first FCC appearance, lacks USfriendly LTE bands
Samsung pegged its new Note for an October launch in Europe and Asia, in typical FCC fashion, it's passed through those wireless testing labs ahead of its arrival in stores around the world. For US readers, there's a severe lack of compatible US LTE bands on this Galaxy Note II, which suggests this is a global model we're dealing with, likely to connect with other 4G networks -- there's a whole lot of them out there. Aside from that, there's a typical selection of 850/1900 GSM/GPRS/EDGE and 850 WCDMA/HSPA radios inside this GT-N7105 model. However, we're expecting another Note II iteration -- packing friendlier LTE frequencies -- will make an appearance at the FCC pretty soon.
