At the bottom of the iPhone 5, the downside to buying it

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

It’s no secret a lot of people are salivating at the chance to take a bite out of Apple’s newest iPhone. The new iPhone 5 has plenty of new bells and whistles to boast: it’s bigger, faster and has a better camera.

But the downside appears to be on the bottom of the phone.

“The new connector is bitter sweet,” said Justin Saturley, a technician with Tampa’s iHospital.

Dubbed “Lightning,” the connector is smaller than the one that’s used on current Apple products, which means you’ll need an adapter for your old accessories. And Apple will be happy to sell you the new adapter, for around $30.

“There was no way for them to make the phone thinner and better without changing that connector. That 30 pin connecter was so just so large,” Saturley said.

The technicians at the iHospital hope to have them soon after launch. For most, it’ll be a must-buy along with their shiny new phone.

Tech Check: iPhone 5 Fever

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

The big news in the tech world this week has been and probably will continue to be the iPhone 5 announcement. Apple is expected to roll out the newest installment to the iPhone family this week.

Several leaked photos have already hit the web ahead of Wednesday’s announcement. The latest is the new power cord that gets away from the current 30 pin connection. That’s right, you will not be able to use your old cords. This makes sense with the previously leaked photos of a longer, thinner iPhone in the number 5.

The doctors at the iHospital in Atlanta spoke with FOX 5 about what they have been hearing. They say the back is different. The iPhone 5 should have a unibody style, so no more glass fronts or backs.

Will iPhone 5 Sales Reach 10 Million in Launch Weekend?

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

iPhone 5 salesUnless you live on a remote island that doesn’t believe in technology, we’re sure you’ve been inundated with information about Apple’s latest iPhone, the iPhone 5.  This particular unit is proving to be a massive hit among users with an estimated 6 – 10 million iPhone 5′s being sold in the opening weekend. This is according to Gene Munster, an analyst from Piper Jaffrey.  Munster based these predictions on two factors: a) the massive amount of iPhone 5 pre-orders and b) the number of iPhone 4S’s sold last year.  Here’s more of what he had to say:

Given the 2 million pre-orders, we remain confident that Apple can deliver 8 million (range of 6-10 million) iPhones in the launch weekend. The reason we are confident in the 8 million is two-fold. First, initial 24 hour pre-orders for the iPhone 5 were up 100% y/y from the iPhone 4S. Last year, pre-orders accounted for 25% of total weekend launch unit sales. Assuming the same initial pre-order/retail distribution, the pre-order total would suggest 8 million launch units.
