iPhone 4G – Is The iPhone 4G Overrated?
It is highly expected that Apple (Steve Jobs) will make the announcement for the iPhone 4G at the WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) 2010 on June 7th in San Francisco. The Internet is already buzzing around the iPhone 4G, and the Gizmodo leak last month really contributed to the excitement and conversation around the iPhone 4G.
But is the iPhone 4G really all that?
I’m of the opinion that no, the iPhone 4G is not going to live up to the hype and excitement that is building. Sure, it’s going to be cool to have a new iPhone. I know I was excited when I upgraded from my first generation iPhone to the iPhone 3GS. But with the iPhone 4G coming out, the majority of the excitement around the product has already taken place with the first gen iPhone, the iPhone 3G, and the iPhone 3GS.
The iPhone 4G is, quite simply, an upgraded OS with a video conferencing.
I mean, do you really think we are going to see lines wrapping around buildings to get the iPhone 4G? I don’t think so…
Gizmodo’s Impact on the iPhone 4G
I think that another reason a lot of the potential sales from the iPhone 4G launch were taken away when Gizmodo released the iPhone 4G leak video.
With the world getting a “glimpse” of the iPhone 4G, before Apple has even announced the product, was very damaging to the entire marketing plan. The launch of the iPhone 4G will never be the same after Gizmodo dissected the iPhone 4G and published the results (reviews, images, and videos) on the web.
What do you think about the upcoming iPhone 4G?
So do you think the iPhone 4G is a revolutionary product that will generate the same amount of buzz, excitement, and sales that previous versions have generated?
Or is the iPhone 4G all about evolution and not revolution!?
