In the last few years the amount of new phone launches that we have seen, has considerably increased. It’s mostly down to the advancements in current technology and what a smartphone is now capable of doing. With each new phone launch, another phone becomes redundant. So you can imagine the amount of old Apple iPhones that get left in the drawer when a new iPhone release is imminent.
In a month’s time we will expect to see another iPhone launch towards the middle/end of September 2012 (after the initial 12th September conference). Will it be the iPhone 5?
