iPhone 5 pare sa afecteze vanzarile terminalelor Android

  Terminalul iPhone 5 lansat de catre Apple in SUA pare a fi o adevarata problema pentru producatorii de terminale Android, cel putin in SUA, analistii locali sustinand ca noul terminal a afectat serios vanzarile de terminale Android. De la Samsung Galaxy S III si pana la HTC One X, toti producatorii de terminale Android ar fi fost afectati, iar cei de la RIM nu ar fi scapat neatinsi. Analistii sustin ca stocurile de terminale Android incep sa creasca in magazinele din SUA, totul dupa lansarea oficiala a iPhone 5, un dispozitiv care si asa se gaseste destul de greu in magazine.

In September, several smartphone vendors aggressively discounted their high-end flagship Android devices to mid- and low-tier pricing, but “this largely led to disappointing overall results. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 Android smartphone continues to sell well, but inventories are rising faster than sales. Taiwan’s HTC had to aggressively discount its Android smartphones last month to compete and clear out a relatively high sales channel inventory, Faucette said. Handset vendors HTC, LG and Sony (SNE) are likely to see continued weakness in the December quarter. Meanwhile, Research In Motion (RIMM) continues to struggle with its BlackBerry devices. RIM has slashed prices on its phones in Western Europe to reduce high inventory levels. In the U.S., carriers are stocking fewer BlackBerrys.

  Vanzarile de terminale Android ar fi scazut impreuna cu intentia de achizitie a unui asemenea dispozitiv, insa in general acestea sunt tendintele cand un iPhone nou apare pe piata. Producatorii se asteptau la un asemenea raspuns din partea consumatorilor, multi vor pregati alte terminale in viitorul apropiat, insa in perioada sarbatorilor de iarna e greu de crezut ca un alt smartphone ar putea ajunge iPhone 5 in vanzari.
