iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C to be most successful Apple launch ever, says analyst

An analyst has said that he expects Apple's upcoming iPhones to set a new record for the company

Apple's expected 10 September event, which will reportedly see the unveiling of the iPhone 5S and a low-cost iPhone 5C, could be the most successful Apple launch ever, an analyst has said.

Apple will soon update its iPhone range.

Trip Chowdhry, Global Equities Research's Managing Director, told Benzinga that he expects the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C to set a new record for Apple.

"The new iPhones will be massively successful," he said. "This will be the most successful product launch ever in the history of Apple."

Chowdhry has based this prediction on several factors, including his research that shows many smartphone users in India, Malaysia and Thailand buy cheaper Android phones but are more likely to buy a cheaper iPhone if one was available.

He also thinks that the ongoing patent battles between Apple and companies such as Samsung will help Apple differentiate its products from the competition.

In addition, Chowdhry has suggested that the upcoming biopic of Apple's late co-founder, Steve Jobs, could "evoke positive emotions toward Apple and its products."

Despite his confidence in the next iPhone, Chowdhry has criticised Apple for lack of innovation. "Innovation does no exist at Apple," he said. "Where is Apple TV? Where is iWatch?"

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
