I spoke to a friend of mine. He told me that he saw Apple 4 phones in China with native Apple apps installed on them. Around $50. Wonder if this can be true. I know that there are clones around with a cranky software (Windoze or so) on them, but this was new for me. Is it a rumor or can this be true?
And if true, what the heck can we do about this? These Chinese copy (thus steal) almost everything. Quite worrying!
And where exactly will the Chinese get the A6 chip? You think Apple will sell it to them? if you change some of the components, it's not a 4S. Chinese copy phones may look the same, but they do not run apps...they are strictly for status, just like their fake Rolexes
Inside of iphone 4s is very clear. Many Chinese companies could copy its design.They only need change some components which could cut down the cost, then sell it with competitive price in the market. I personally think that the terminal selling quantity for apple phone could not surpass the copy manufacturers' in China. Actually, the brand of Apple is the key value. If not, it is the same as many other cellphone in China market.
Samsung and others copy Apple. It takes them at least a year or two to catch up. That's what makes Apple unique. Apple never seems to run out of new ideas that differentiate them from the me-tos. The only "good" idea Samsung ever had was to copy American and Japanese companies for their products.
As it says on page 2, Qualcomm RTR8605 multimode RF transceiver, which goes with the Qualcomm MDM6610 baseband.
The article indicates the Qualcomm baseband was already used in iPhone 4, but i think the RF may have kicked out an Intel/Infineon peice of RF
great set of design people created this piece. But it seems Samsung supplied A5 processor. He is trying to compete Apple. Who will be the winner?How apple has the mind set to buy an ic fom his competitor?great people and community.it is good.
