Aug. 27 — Former Apple CEO John Sculley, IDC’s Crawford Del Prete and Bloomberg’s Adam Satariano and Lulu Chen preview Apple’s product event scheduled for Sept. 9. They speak with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang, who also speaks with John Scully about Obi Worldphone.
In the Apple iPhone category, look for a better camera, faster processor, and force touch — the new interface available on the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch and new Android remakes could put a dent in Garmin’s market with dedicated devices.
Obi Worldphone, co-founded by former Apple CEO John Sculley plans to hit the Non-US Market in October with $200 phones. The Obi Worldphone comes with a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 processor with Adreno 405 GPU, a 5-inch 1080×1920 Gorilla Glass 4 display, a 13MP camera, a 3,000mAH battery, and up to 3GB of RAM. Price range? $200 to $250, with tech features ranging from 16GB to 32GB of storage and 2GB or 3GB of RAM.
Sculley says people in China used to refresh their phone every 6 months, but now people want to wait for iPhones and save their money for 18 months, so they can get an iPhone. So a cheaper phone will make it easier to refresh anyway?
