The Agonizing Wait Continues as iPhone 5 Runs out of Stock The most eagerly awaited smartphone of all times, Apple iPhone 5, finally hit the Indian markets, or rather we should say the legitimate Indian markets, on the 2nd of November 2012. But if somebody thought that the agonizing wait was, at last, over, they need to come out of their reverie. Not a week has passed since the ‘smarty’ landed on the Indian soil, and news is already around the market that Apple Inc. is facing an all-time shortage for their glamorous product. Thanks to the overwhelming craze for this latest release out of the American factory, the phone has disappeared from the face of the international market as quickly as it had arrived. In fact, it sounds pretty pointless to talk about the global markets when our very own Indian markets, despite their ever-existing trend of higher price rates for Apple products, could not avoid the shortage scenario. With iPhone5 price tagged at Rs 45,500, Rs 52,500 and Rs 59,500 for the 16, 32 and 64 GB models in India, the new Apple smartphone seems to be facing no difficulties in sales, whatsoever, despite its extravagant price tags in India.
Taking a look at what has made this newbie an instant heartthrob of the global audiences, the first thing that we notice is its 4 inch (diagonal) multi-touch retina display unit that is not only bigger than the 3.5 inch screen of iPhone 4S, but, with the same 1136 x 640 pixel resolution and 326 ppi of pixel density as iPhone 4S, it offers a 44% improvement in colour saturation as well. Not just the screen, but the body that holds it, too, is worth a watch. Carved completely out of aluminium and glass, iPhone 5, besides getting a very trendy and glossy look, gets to flaunt a very light-weight profile too. For overall dimensions of 23.8mm x 58.6mm x 7.6mm, this mobile weighs only 112gm, which, straight away, makes it the lightest and slimmest phone to have ever emerged from the Apple camp. What adds to the list of improvements and advancements is the shooting unit. It comprises of an 8 megapixel rear camera that comes loaded with a host of amazing features like LED flash, 5-element lens, a dynamic low-light, f/2.4 aperture and a sapphire crystal lens. Besides incorporating all of these in a slimmer package, the camera also holds the ability to shoot 1080p HD videos with face detection and video stabilisation. But that is not all about the camera unit. Accompanying the fabulous rear-end unit is a proficient 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera that excels at recording 720p high definition videos.
Loaded and packed with all that high-tech hardware, iPhone 5 does not lag behind when it comes to the software part either. The next-generation A6 microprocessor performs the task of driving this package of brilliance, easily doubling the speed for processing and graphics in comparison to its predecessors. The memory department, meanwhile, receives no modifications, and remains static at 16, 32 and 64 GB versions. As far as connectivity is concerned, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G LTE serve the purpose quite efficiently. Although, it is disappointing that the fresh addition of 4G LTE will not be functional in India, so no excitement there. Another factor that might cause a problem for the Indian crowds is the requirement of nano SIM cards. While network operators like Vodafone and Airtel have confirmed the availability of a substantial stock of nano SIM cards, chances are that they won’t suffice for the overzealous demands that are arriving each day for iPhone 5. On the brighter side of things, the battery that has been employed for the new iPhone seems to be excellent at its job and promises to supply sufficient power for an 8-hour-long talk-time on 3G, 10-hour-long video and Wi-Fi session, 40 hours of music and 225 hours on standby mode. So, there are plus points and there are minus points for the latest Apple product, and they will, undoubtedly, go a long way in deciding the fate of iPhone 5 over the coming days. But in the end, it all comes down to how well you can resist an Apple innovation that has run out of stock in the very first week of its launch.
