Though it is being released in September, the new iPhone 5 , has already started to benefit Apple. During this week itself, the apple stock has risen immmensely and continues to rise. Not only the iPhone 5 is being released but it is also rumored that another iPhone may debut in the fall. This other iPhone may be an immproved iPhone 4 to be used in China.
Due to the population of China, a device targeting this country will immensely help the blooming Apple market. They plan to target China Mobile which has about 600 million subscribers and China telecom which has 100 million subscribers. In a conference call with the COE of Apple, Tim Cook, admitted that they just “scratched the sruface of market in China” and plan on becoming more active there.
I think the iPhone 4s is a very smart buisness idea for Apple since the population in China can positively influence their buisness and help it grow more and also spread the popularity of their company.

This article on PC Mag talks about the new product, The Playstation Vita, being released by Sony Playstation, which will become available in Japan on October 17 but still leave American gamers without a release date. Though it may be being released earlier in Japan the retail price is significantly higher there also, the Wi-Fi version is over $75 more expensive and the 3G version is over $90 more expensive.
Also, since the Playstation Vita is coming out a lot earlier than the Wii U, its main competition from the Nintendo Company, it will have time to fit into people’s lives and hype up gamers more for the American release, an interesting business tactic indeed.
Investors: Sony (Playstation)
Consumers: people that want to play video games on this new device
Competitors: Nintendo with their Wii U being released in 2012
1)Do you thunk the PS Vita will beat the Wii U in sales? If yes, then why?
2) Do you think the sales in Japan will beat the sales in America? If yes, then why?
Hey, Its Harsh. I’m going to tell you guys about Prezi. My Info tech teacher introduced to me in grade 11. Powerpoint and Prezi have many differences and similarities. Some differences are that you can change angles, videos can be added onto your prentation, and instead of slides, paths are used in Prezi. However, they share many aspects, for example, they both are made for making prensentations, they both include transtition methods, and they are both allow you to tranfer shapes, pictures, and words onto your presentation. Presonally I found Prezi much more attractive than Powerpoint and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t mind going that extra mile to make something better. So here’s my First Prezi. Hope you enjoy it!
Hey guys, welcome to Harsh’s blog. More updates and posts to come, thanks for following my blog.
