The announcement by Qualcomm difficult to generate sufficient volume of the components leading some analysts to believe that this would delay the release of the iPhone 5 in the fall.
Yesterday, we talked about the presentation of the results of the founder Qualcomm and its difficulties in obtaining admission volumes last generation chips with their customers’ terminal manufacturers. The foundry is now an important partner for Apple’s mobile products (modems are already available in its iPhone 4 / 4S and iPad 2 and 3), analysts were quick to make a connection with possible consequences on the launch of the next iPhone. This is the case of Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray and honcho of Apple predictions, suggesting that the problems of volume of Qualcomm are likely to delay the launch of the iPhone 5 ( if that is his name) in October , while it expected a launch in August. This alleged delay the launch, coupled with the announcement of a decline in sales of the iPhone at the operator Verizon in anticipation of a short-term launch of the new model (the waiting for a launch in June at the WWDC developers conference remains strong) continues to weigh on the price of Apple stock exchange, while the company must submit its quarterly results early next week. The future new iPhone is supposed to ship a 4G LTE compatibility, there is very likely that this is again that Qualcomm will load their multimodal solutions with selective activation according to the operators (CDMA / LTE Verizon, HSPA / LTE for AT & T. ..).
