As there is apparently an insatiable desire for iPhone market research, which may or may not surprise you, there is no shortage of analyst opinions or survey results to write about. The problem is that, most often, they aren't worth writing about. There's little information on which to base market research on at this point, mostly due to the fact that Apple and AT&T have been less than forthcoming with details about the iPhone.
Apple relaunched a reformatted iPhone site today which includes some new demos, pictures of the iPhone, and other information. Though the new site isn't brimming over with new details - it does provide on very big, very juicy piece of information: the Apple iPhone will have YouTube.
Come tomorrow, everyone will be saying "10 days and counting", or "the countdown has begun", or something like that. We're getting ever closer to the launch and just when you think the buzz couldn't grow any more, it does. Each day more and more news is out there about the iPhone, so much that it's getting hard to
sift wade through it. Most of the information is, as usual, is non-information - but there are a few new items worth noting.
In a press release issued today out of Cupertino, Apple announced an improved iPhone battery as compared to their preliminary announcements. The new battery, according to Apple, provides 250 hours standby time (10+ days), 24 hours of music playback, 8 hours of talk time, 7 hours of video playback, and 6 hours of internet use.
