Apple’s annoying policy of delaying the iPhone 4 intentionally

On Friday, Apple’s iPhone 4 was made available to 17 other countries and cities. Among them, New Zealand was also included. But, strangely the iPhone 4 was not available for the New Zealanders.

A representative from Apple said that the iPhone 4 sale would begin later in the day during the course of their website being updated, but the representative had not said about the reason for the delay.

Apple iphone 4 delay

Apple’s act of refusing to say about the launch of the Multimedia tablet in advance would have made everyone obsessive but upset buyers were wandering around the stores on bigger cities to know where the product will be launched.

Now again, same thing happened in the case of iPhone 4 as well. A seller from a store also commented that this policy of Apple looks frustrating.

She said that, “This policy drives us mad sometimes”.

Apple is already facing the problem of reception issues with the iPhone 4 when it is handled in a particular position. Apple has now said that, they would issue free bumper cases to solve the issue.

Theory of Apple for iPhone 4 White Antenna fix

Apple controversies are seems to be never ending, yet more interesting. The new controversy is about the iPhone 4 white models. “Is the delay for the iPhone 4 white models has got anything to do with Apple’s attempt to address the signal problem?”

Apple iphone 4 signal problem

This was not said by me. Business Insider’s Jay Yarow had deduced this theory about the delay for iPhone 4 White, “Till the end of September, Apple will be giving away free bumper cases and the iPhone 4 White models will not be available till the end of this year”.

This may look concurrent! The theory is that, “Apple do not want to end up giving away free bumper cases for all, they just want to find a fix for the reception issues in iPhone 4 and implement it for the White iPhone 4 when it becomes available for the release again”

The problem in the iPhone 4 is that, when you hold the phone in the bottom left hand corner between the gaps of the antenna of the phone, the signal goes down. The reception problem can be seen clearly in poor signal areas and can be eliminated by using the free bumper cases provided by Apple. According to Apple, the estimated cost for giving free bumper cases amounts more than 175 million dollars.

If any other problem comes, even after giving away free cases for iPhone 4, Apple will not consider it again and also is not going to find any fix for the problem. There is main whole in the antenna theory for the white iPhone; Apple is actually selling more iPhone 4s than what it could really supply. Even if Apple is having the White model iPhone 4s, they do not want to supply them, and so they need not have to give away free cases.

The other acceptable conspiracy is that, the only possible way to reduce giving the number of free cases is to sell lesser iPhone 4 models in all colors available. If you ask me, the gain that Apple had selling the iPhone 4s is many times more than the loss they have for giving free cases. So, it is better for Apple to just fill the demands of people for iPhone 4.

Sharp issued a statement that, “This new generation XMDF will help you to view multimedia contents like audio and video and will adjust the layout of the content automatically to meet and match publishers’ needs”

Sharp is going to release 2 kinds of e-readers in Japan by the end of 2010 (this year) and will then sell it abroad, in an aim to face up to the Apple’s iPad and iPhone.

Sharp’s senior official Masami Obatake has said to a press conference that, “e-publishing businesses are now getting lot of recognition and launching the e-readers by the end of the year would be apt”

When asked about Sharp’s ability to deal with competition, Masami said “The e-readers has got new advancements and so it will be sufficient to deal with the competition”

“In order to get established on the e-reader field, we have established agreements with top Japanese newspapers and publishers to provide the contents for the e-reader”, Sharp said.

During the end of May, Sony said that it had got a same plan and so joined with the Asahi Japanese Newspaper, the Toppan publishers and the KDDI (telecoms operator) with each having 25 % share.

This was announced before the iPad release in Japan and rest of the countries (leaving out US), where news paper advertisers having a decrease in advertisements and so found these e-readers as a way for success.

The e book market of Japan is now worth 500$ million with most topics covering conventional PCs and mobile phones. E-readers soon will prevail in many hands.

iPhone 4 real reason for reception issues

Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs’s announcement of free cases or refund for their previously bought cases might be an eye wash to take cover for some time.

The solution for the “Death Claw” (reception problem) is free bumper case for all (unless again the phone is hold in the similar way, as said by jobs in the email sent while the issue was overhauling).

iPhone 4 reception issue

According to jobs, “the antennagate” the way media refer it, has been overemphasised” and he says other smart phones were also having the similar problems. When you hold them in the wrong way, the signal bars will begin to dip. Jobs has defended by saying, they had not received any complaints from other models regarding the same problems. We may have a bigger verification in the future about this.

We can understand that, Apple is under the scanner now and so for every step that they take, they will be scrutinized and the products that they release will be watched over by the media.

The reason for failure of the iPhone was poor testing? Apple used 100 $ million anechoic chambers to test their iPhones reception (which is really good). But the iPhone was not tested in rigorous environments to estimate the way in which the iPhone reception was working. The iPhone should have been tested in a place having bigger building, terrains, and constantly varying cell towers and over stretched networks, which may not be possible. Apple is just like other companies, which do not perform field testing of their products. They test in a way like “phone found at the bar”. Apple tries to build the iPhones in a way avoid the antenna to come in contact with the skin or you can call it as no signal issues. The cases surrounding the iPhone act as a signal booster and so will eliminate the signal issues.

Apple’s way of giving free cases was to take care of the issue temporarily in order to take care of its upcoming products. It is really bad that, Apple who is well established has missed out a variable that is essential for the iPhone i.e. signal strength.
