I think hiring an innovative designer is probably a good step for Apple but I have to say, things just are not the same with Steve Jobs gone and I do fear Apple is starting to lose its brand and design power. I am sure Jobs tried as best as he could to ably prepare the company for his passing once he knew things with his health were dire, but history has shown that without Jobs, Apple just isn't the powerhouse it is with him. I love Apple products and have been an enthusiast for years, and am worried for the company's future.

I saw a commercial for this product, Jenn, and they seem to be emphasizing the design. It still seems to me that it isn't the kind of design that Apple's traditional customers have sought.

@shehan - Apple was just named the most valuable brand in the world, passing Coca Cola.  I don't think they are loosing market share. But, they are struggling with creating new markets.

Hiring the designer, Ben Shaffer, from Nike may bring more interesting things in the near future. The comapny cultures are similar.  It should be a seamless transition.

@shehan - I think this phone does look sleek and modern.  A lot of the criticism I hear today sounds similar to what was said when Apple introduced the imac G3 in translucent colours to a world of beige.  Today white/titanium is the new beige. 

Once again, Apple shakes things up.  That's what they do best.

Shehan I do agree with you on this, I believe that if the Blackberry did not move to the full touch screen from the traditional full key pad Blackberry is only a history like siemens phones.

Sehan Lock at the samsung product range, they have so many variations with small differences in features, but they are doing well in the market thanks to the marketing strategy they use.

A,saji in the smart phone market there are plenty of competitors, without catering to the lower income market which is more than the 75% (I think)of the market, apple may not have a future.

Yes tekochi you are right, but any way if it's give a longer battery life I do not care about the size of the battery when compared with size of the phone.
