The results of the 2013 Harris Poll EquiTrend study are in, and once again Apple has nabbed the top of the charts for its performance in the computer, tablet, and mobile phone categories. As Cult of Mac reports, the charts in question covered a wide variety of aspects such as brand recognition, emotional response to the brand, and purchasing consideration. So much for all that doom and gloom about Apple losing its edge.
Android's meteoric success over the last couple of years has had a lot to do with its availability to almost every phone carrier, and now it looks as though Apple's finally taking that lesson to heart. Good thing, too. According to the data Kantar Worldpanel released this morning, Apple's increasingly more open attitude toward carrier availability has resulted in a 3.5 percent bump in sales since May of last year.
Apple's iPad has a storied history of leading global tablet sales. Despite a seemingly never-ending deluge of tablets from numerous tech companies, Cupertino has hardly budged from the top spot. But according to one survey, Google's Nexus 7 may have dethroned the iPad for its stake of Japanese market share.
Now that the rumored October 10 date for Apple to send media invites for an "iPad mini" event later this month has passed, we'll turn our attention to a new survey that reveals consumers may not be that interested anyway.
As we all wait to see what Apple will unveil in San Francisco at 10am PST Wednesday, there’s some interesting data just released which shows that most consumers don’t care as much about a second-generation iPad as they do just spending less money on an existing one.
The latest MacBook Air models exceeded the expectations of many, although there are plenty of folks still pining for a built-in 3G modem to make the tiny notebook a true rival for cheaper netbooks. If a recent Apple survey is any indication, Cupertino might just be paying attention to those wishes.
While the world waits and wonders if a Verizon iPhone even exists -- a game we’ve been playing since 2007 when the device first launched -- a new survey suggests that AT&T might have less to worry about from losing its exclusivity than previously thought.
Ahh... the day before an Apple event. The rumor mills are churning and you can smell the freshly baked rumor pies coming out of ovens everywhere. New rumors today suggest that Apple may be overhauling the look of the iTunes Store, bring streaming video coming to iOS devices, and is Predicto really that predictable?
As we all know, the rumors that the iPhone will be available with Verizon are getting stronger. Regardless of how we feel about the carriers, we'd love to see a day when our iPhone network isn't bogged down with everyone and their dog using it (those of you in big cities know how that goes). We can only imagine a few more carrier options would help with that, and it looks like that's what people want--specifically, Verizon.
