Expect iPhone 5 AND iPhone 4S: analyst

Analyst estimates there are 1.5 billion potential customers for iPhone 4S

Rumours have been circulating about the next-generation iPhone, with many expecting an iPhone 5 and others speculating a more subtle change to the device naming it the iPhone 4S.

Computerworld Australia: iPhone 5 launch expected on October 7

But Deutsche Bank's Chris Whitmore has told clients to expect both an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 4S. In a note issued this morning, Whitmore wrote: "With Nokia and RIMM struggling, the time is right for Apple to aggressively penetrate the mid range smart-phone market to dramatically expand its total addressable market and market share," reports Fortune.

Whitmore estimates that there are 1.5 billion potential customers in 98 for the iPhone 4S, which would come unlocked (not connected to a network) and have a pre-paid voice plan. The iPhone 5 would be a full-featured newly designed device with many improvements that is predicted to appear in September.

Whitmore's predictions follow Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty's note yesterday, which claims that the iPhone 5 production will begin in August.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
