Yeah, can’t sleep yet and my RSS is empty except for today’s news in the SCMP.
While Hongkongers had to wait a full year for the first “official” version of the iPhone (black market models, of course, came sooner) the iPhone 5 will arrive here on Tuesday.
The iPhone 5 arrives in Hong Kong on Tuesday? As in Tuesday September 18th? When Apple has announced that the date it will first be available for sale to the public anywhere is Friday the 21st? When the Apple HK web site shows this?
Is Amy Nip just making it up as she goes along or is she privy to some information that no one else in the world has?
Analysts surveyed by Bloomberg expect Apple to sell 58 million iPhone 5s this year – nearly 15 million per month.
Given that there will be just 3 months and 1 week left to the year when the iPhone 5 comes out, I think that’s a tad more per month than 15 million.
Actually it gets even stranger. There’s a quote from some guy, Erwin Huang, CEO of some company called WebOrganic. He claims to be the first person in Hong Kong to have had the original iPhone. And these days he says he loves it because of a Canto-pop streaming app called KKbox.
“Last year I was with my wife at the Eiffel Tower, and we played a game of remembering love songs about Paris. KKbox has more than 10 Canto-pop songs on the strange topic.”
Love songs about Paris is a strange topic?
The photography programme Instagram became a US$1 billion business within months on the back of its iPhone app, while apps have also helped the development of websites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Instagram launched in October 2010. Instagram had no revenue. Almost two years after launch, it was purchased by Facebook for $1 billion (mostly shares of stock, not cash).
Someone was paid to write this nonsense?
