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?"

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
