iPad2 Rumor Bingo Card

 

Word is coming out that in the UK carriers are dropping prices of the iPad - implying the iPad 2 is right around the corner.  Plus you know the iPad2 is right around the corner.  This means it is time for the iPad2 rumor bingo card.  There have been a lot of different rumors about the iPad2 - some going back to right after the iPad launched.  The Bingo card above shows many of these rumors.  Some will likely be spot on - most will miss the mark - others are just silly.  Per my thoughts on those above:

 

Likely:

Front Facing Camera

1.2 GHz Dual Core Processor

Gyroscope

Rear Facing 5 MP Camera

Larger Rear Speaker

Finger Print Resistant Display

Same 1024 x 768 IPS Display

Thinner Not as Reflective Display

Lighter Poly Carb Case

Verizon CDMA 3G Version

 

Maybe:

128 GB storage on Top End

Near Field Communication (NFC)

2nd Landscape Mode Dock Connector

1 GB RAM

$399 for Lowest end iPad

 

Long Shot:

2048 x 1536 "Retina Display"

512 MB RAM

 

No Chance:

No More WiFi only iPads

SD Card Slot

Rear Facing 3 MP Camera

Rear Facing 1 MP Camera

7" Version

USB Port

No Home Button

What the Frack is wrong with the NY Times or more specifically Joe Nocera at the NY Times.  Did Steve Jobs drown his puppy and run off with his Wife too?  Not sure how else to explain the "Article" he posted titled - Verizon Deal May Expose iPhone Flaws.  To say it is a flawed post filled with mis-information and is highly biased is really understating how bad this "Article" is.  Did the NY Times fire all the editors?  To start we have this quote 

 

"Yet for all that it offers, the iPhone has always been plagued by serious drawbacks. The “phone” part of the iPhone has never worked very well, dropping calls with annoying regularity. Even when the phone works, the sound quality is often substandard. You would think in an age when fewer people are using landlines this would matter. Apparently not."

 

What is not mentioned by Joe is that the iPhone works very well in other countries on other networks. And even in the US the iPhone 4 works very well depending on where you live.  NY and San Fran - not so much. But in Kansas City where I live the iPhone 4 is rock solid and the sound quality of the calls is far better than my Wife's smartphone on T-Mobile. I have found the iPhone 4 works in areas my iPhone 3GS never worked.  

 

Joe continues with these gems:

 

"the iPhone’s lack of a raised keyboard makes it next to impossible to do serious e-mailing. And users have to worry constantly about battery life; if they’re not judicious, the iPhone’s battery can be drained by noon."

 

Ummm - WOW.  Really Joe you are going back to 2007 to bitch about the lack of a Physical Keyboard?  That horse has not just been beaten to death - the corpse has long since decomposed and and turned to dust which was then blown away.  It is 2011 and to date over 160 Million iOS devices with the virtual keyboard have been sold. Joe - GET OVER IT.  Per the second part of that quote - Battery Life - What the Frack?  Really - you are complaining about the iPhone's battery life - well then you are about the only one.  The iPhone 4 has great battery life, and better than almost all other full screen smart phones.  Battery Life ?  Joe? Really?  Please let us know exactly what other full screen smart phones have a better battery life.  Oh I will do that for you - see this link.  Looks like only the Droid X has better battery life.  Battery Life is not a complaint I get from my listeners.  Surely you are not complaining about the lack of a removable battery? If so see comments above about 2007 and the dead horse.  

 

"They never make design compromises at Apple. They make consumer compromises. Yet consumers have always been willing to overlook those compromises so they can claim they own some of the coolest products on the planet."

 

Joe it appears you just don't get it (understatement of the year).  Even if people were just buying the iPhone because it was cool - that would not explain why it turns up on top of EVERY consumer survey for customer satisfaction. Regardless of the motivation of why people are buying the iPhone - they clearly are very happy once they do get the device.  I will not get into the condescending message your quote sends - but clearly you think iPhone owners are mindless drones.  Which obviously hit you pretty hard when you found out your son was one of those mindless drones - since he wants the iPhone too.  Luckily Joe for your son intelligence comes from the Mother - and that is a better explanation on why your son wants the iPhone.  

 

"As much as anything, the success of Android is what finally pushed Apple into the arms of Verizon Wireless, which got much better terms than AT&T. ... In truth, Apple needed Verizon Wireless more than Verizon Wireless needed Apple. The deal the two companies cut reflects that fact."

 

Is that the deal that does not put any Crapware on the iPhone and does not put the Verizon Logo on the iPhone?  You say "In Truth" like it is fact.  But what about the fact that AT&T was adding more subscribers than Verizon every quarter.  Reality is both needed each other - but Verizon needed the iPhone more than Apple needed Verizon.  Subscriber growth is the life blood for carriers and the iPhone is the key reason why AT&T continually was beating Verizon.  

 

"Mainly, though, the Verizon Wireless subscriber is simply used to a different kind of experience. If they all migrate immediately to the iPhone, then truly I will raise the white flag." 

 

White flags are something you waive in Battle.  Obviously Joe, you feel you are in a war with the iPhone - and that comes through perfectly clear in your very biased article.  However, what is also very clear based on your mis-information and lack of any real research is that you showed up to a gun fight with just a knife.  Remember when you are waiving your white flag to raise it high above your head we would not want you shot by one of those mindless iPhone buying drones or your own son. Metaphorically speaking that is.
