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.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
