The Apple rumor mill is churning over reports that Apple will not release a new iPhone this summer like they have every year since 2007.
I think that’s a huge mistake. With new Android phones every six months, Apple can’t afford to let the platform stagnate.
I sure hope the rumors are unfounded. My 3Gs is approaching two years old now and it’s time for a new phone. If I can’t get a new iPhone (the 4 will be a year old) then I’m going to be looking at alternatives. I’ve not been impressed with Android so far, but the iPhone is in serious danger of falling behind in the market.
Android phones have larger screens, faster processors and arguably a more open platform. They also have phone company crapware and a fragmented and bizarre app ecosystem. I guess it’s gonna be the usual game of what sucks the least.
