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.

12 Things You Need to Know About the iPhone 5 Right Now

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

iPhone 5 inviteWe are all on pins and needles here at the iHospital anticipating the release of Apple’s newest iPhone, the iPhone 5.  According to recent reports, the iPhone 5 is scheduled to be released on September 12, 2012 at a special Apple event.  When it comes to the iPhone 5, Apple fans across the globe are wondering about what new features to expect, how much it will cost, and most importantly, how exactly they’re going to purchase one! We’ve scoured the Internet for everything you need to know about the iPhone 5 and here’s what we’ve come up with:

12 Things You Need to Know About the iPhone 5

1.  The next iPhone might not be called the iPhone 5. Like The New iPad, maybe the next iPhone will simply be called The New iPhone.

2.  Like we mentioned above, the next iPhone is scheduled to be released at a special media event in San Francisco, California on September 12, 2012 at 10:00 am PT.  Email invitations were sent to reporters. The invite shows a large “12″ with a five-shaped shadow and has the words, “It’s almost here” written above.  There’s been no indication if the event will be live streamed. (We hope so!).

The iPhone 4 Was the Most Purchased Smartphone in 2011

Written by iHospital. Posted in iHospital iV

According to Macworld, the top three smartphones sold in the United States last year all belonged to Apple.  The number one spot went to the wildly popular iPhone 4, the 3GS was in number two and the 4S came in third, even despite an October release late in the year.  The RIM Blackberry Curve 8530 and HTC EVO 4G came in fourth and fifth.

The results are available in ComScore’s annual Mobile Future in Focus Report  and it’s also important to note that Apple is the top-selling smartphone manufacturer in the United States with 29.6 percent of the market share.

Apple’s iPhones only make up roughly 30% of the total smartphone market.   And because there are more than one hardware manufacturer building phones for the platform, Android is holding the number one spot at 47.3 percent of the market.  The ComScore report also suggests that Blackberry users are more likely to switch to an Android rather than an iPhone. Seriously?  (Don’t forget to check out our iPhone repair section in case your part of the 30% and are in need of help!)

BookBook for iPhone

Written by iHospital. Posted in Accessories

Book Book Case AccessoryiPhone Accessory: BookBook for iPhone – $59.99 US – Score: 4 IV’s

What is the BookBook and what do you like about it?

The BookBook for my iPhone 4 is awesome!  This case serves as a wallet, and a protective iphone case. On the left side you have multiple slots for credit cards, a window slot for your ID, and a pocket underneath for miscellaneous items. On the right side you have a housing area for your iPhone to be secured. A leather strap over the top prevents your iPhone from sliding free. The BookBook is made with a high quality leather with some nice gold-embossed features that looks like a small vintage book. This case is sure to get the attention and envy of anybody that see you with it.

The most valuable benefit of carrying the BookBook is the comfort of less things in my pockets.

Why is the BookBook great for forgetful people like me?

Purchasing BookBook combines your wallet and iPhone into one neat package.  Now you can use Apple’s Find my iPhone application to find your wallet wherever you might have left it!  It’s like you have your own Apple-designed GPS for your wallet!

What didn’t you like?

The only thing I don’t like about the BookBook is that it doesn’t have a hole for the Camera and Flash.  I should also note the BookBook is only compatible with iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

Where can I purchase the BookBook for my iPhone?

You can purchase the BookBook from the twelve south website here.

Cheaper iPhone 4 Picture Proof Leaked

Written by iHospital. Posted in Apple News

The folks over at Gizmodo have done it again. They managed to get their hands on one of the new iPhone 4’s said to be released on Tuesday ahead of time. The leaked images show proof of the N90A. The device codenamed “N90A” for clarification is not the iPhone 4S (which is codenamed N94). Although the iPhone 4S is still said to be coming, the photo is of the cheaper 8GB iPhone 4 which is also said to be launching next week too.

iHospital – Fox News Verizon & AT&T iPhone

Written by iHospital. Posted in Media Coverage

Ross Newman talks about the difference in AT&T’s iPhone and Verizon’s iPhone reception.

To clear the air in this sailor sibling rivalry we set out to test these enemy carriers side-by-side. So, we’ve hooked up with the iPhone hospital in Tampa.

Ross: Hey Chris, how’s it going?

Chris: How you doing?

Chris: Ross helps me out because he is plugged in and I’m cheap. My mobile is seriously old.

Ross: Fully extended antenna. Now you’re going to do single test with that and this.

Chris: For my temporary upgrade I borrowed one AT&T iPhone and one Verizon iPhone.

Ross: You’re going to see, what you need an idea for how both networks work around town. So far, right now Verizon and AT&T both have about same signal strength.

Chris: On first glance they’re almost identical.

Ross: They look pretty much of the same.

Chris: Luckily, for our trial.

Ross: This switch.

Chris: These two are different colors so we don’t confuse competitors.

Ross: You’re going to have AT&T as the white, the black is Verizon.

Chris: With that, it’s time to go for our unscientific test we hop in the jeep. Here we go. Place the phones next to one another and drive around Tampa. On signal strength, we find good but not 100 percent performance on both. Verizon boasts better coverage than AT&T.
