The launch of Apple’s second generation of its iPhone device is espected in San Francisco this week at the Apple World Wide Developers’ Conference.
Analysts predict the new iPhone will have faster 3G wireless connectivity after the original was widely criticised for its much slower 2G connectivity.
Apple has sold more than five million iPhones since June last year and the firm says it is on course to sell 10m iPhones by the end of 2008. Raising its share of the global market (currently 5%)is a key target. It is also anticipated that the company will allow mobile network partners to subsidise the cost of the iPhone to achieve this aim by reducing the cost to teh consumer dramatically!
