It’s no secret that Apple will be releasing the iPhone 5 or iPhone 4S. If it’s not this year, it’ll be next. That much we all should be sure on. However, what’s a little more baffling is whether or not Android users will stay with Android or leave. When the initial flood of Android users emerged, it was primarily on Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile. At the time, no iPhone was available on either carrier’s network, and Android was the smart choice. However, T-Mobile may be acquired by AT&T in less than a year, those two year contracts are ending, and the iPhone 5 is lurking on the horizon.
Just think about the possible inclusions on the iPhone 5 that’s being rumored and confirmed: 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE), Near Field Communication (NFC), larger screen size, new case design, better cameras, etc. I’m not saying that these aren’t already in devices today. I am saying that Apple has a way of reengineering features, and bringing out the best in them.
Personally, I waited on the Verizon iPhone until my LG Voyager told me to upgrade to something else – the HTC Droid Incredible. Take away the crappy battery life, and I couldn’t be happier. Android is getting better every day, and the development community is getting stronger. But will I stay? Will you stay? Does the mystique of the iPhone lay in your heart still?
