9.9.2014 Apple Event Rumor Bingo

Click to get larger version

 
First - I would like to point out - not everything on the bingo card are things I think will happen. Some actually conflict with others. However, these are the top rumors out there leading into the 9.9.2014 event.  And no there is no Apple TV listed - it actually just missed the cut.
 
For those items I think are most likely to happen they are:
 
- 4.7" iPhone 
- 5.5" iPhone
- A8 Processor with M8 Motion Processor
- Sapphire Glass - even if just for one or two specific options of the iPhone.
- 13 MP rear Camera
- iWatch - announced - and it being available in Dec 2014.
And
- 128 GB Version of the iPhone finally.
 
Those are the ones I think are the most likely to happen - and if they did - we get an X on the bingo card.
 
Others likely to happen.
 
- iPhone 4S killed off.  But I think the 5C and 5S remain active and for sale.
- iPhone Power button moves to the side of the iPhone from the top.
- 4.7" iPhone available on Sept 19th.
- 5.5" iPhone not available until the end of October.
- iPhone 6 and iPhone Air are the names for the 4.7" and 5.5" respectively.
- a Barometer is added to the sensors 
- Camera Sticks out of the iPhone and is not flush with the back.
- 2 GHz clock speed for the A8 - but not actually announced at the event.  
And
- Apple introduces a reversible USB cable.
 
 
Others that might happen listed are:
 
- Light up rear Apple logo
- Wifi 802.11.AC - hold over from last years bingo card.
- 4k Video recording and 4k video out - also hold overs from last year
- NFC - again a holdover from last year and the year before.
- 12 Hr 3G talk time - Yup Hold over from last year as well. 
- 2 GB Ram - You guessed it hold over from last year. 
And finally
- iPhone 6 and 6L are the names used (I don't think that will happen)
 
Again Definitely not all these rumor will come to pass and if history repeats itself most will not.  But some will. 

 
 
For those sight impared here is the actual layout of the bingo card going left to right.
 
Top Row:
4.7" iPhone

Thanks to Listener Ryan F for finding this bug in iOS 7.0.2 

When you force quit out of apps and then reboot the apps come back from the dead.  Sometimes.  

I was able to replicated this about once ever 3 times I tried.

IDC reports and Google confirms that over 50% of All Android Tablets are not selling.

How is that for a link bait / attention grabbing title?

But if you look at what IDC just reported and what Google has reported - it is a title that you can actually justify - even if it is meant tongue in cheek.  

Let me explain how I came to that title.  IDC reported that last quarter Android manufacturers shipped 28.2 Million tablets. 

Google on the other hand when announcing the Nexus 7 (2) showed a chart of All time Android Tablet activations 

The absolute best you can get out of that chart is 14 Million tablets activated last quarter.  That means some 14.2 Million (greater than 50%) Android tablets were not activated - i.e. sold.  

We could have also said Google confirms more iPads were sold last quarter than Android tablets.  Again going with those numbers.  

And if we look at IDC's numbers - for Windows tablets - they have 2 Million Windows tablets for the quarter.  Yet from Microsoft's own 10K report we know at best there have been 1.6 Million Surface tablets sold as of October 2012.  If we went with 500k Windows tablets last quarter plus 14 Mil Android tablets and 200k other.  That would work out to a market share for the iPad of 49.8%.   

This is a far cry from the Link bait - truth twisted headlines we are seeing on the Fandroid sites - 

Here 

Here 

Here 

and 

Here 

In this upside down world where everyone seems to be beating up Apple and misreporting stats from research firms.  I found it really surprising that one of the best breakdown on the numbers per Tablet shipments / sales side, came from a post on an Android site.  HERE 

But again - one has to wonder what happened to those missing 14+ Million Android devices.  Seems lots of shelf space is being taken up by all those unsold Android tablets.  

To put into perspective how many unsold Android tablets there were last quarter - if you took all of them still in their boxes and laid them down end to end - they would stretch from New York city out past Salt Lake City.   Just Sayin.
