Apple Buzz: iPhone 4G vs. iPad

For those of you that are planning to jump straight into the iPhone 4G when it is expected to release this Summer, we have an interesting article for you to read, which states whether Apple will be able to create the same kind of ‘buzz’ that it did for their iPad tablet.

As reported from DeviceMag, the launch of the iPad was considered a huge success for the company, with over 300,000 units sold on day one alone.

DeviceMags suggest that the iPhone 4G won’t create as much interest as the iPad, as they feel customers already know what they are getting with the iPhone 4G – from a software point of view.

Give the fact that the iPhone 4G will not come with 4G speeds and only one rumored feature (front-facing camera) has surfaced so far, will consumers really go crazy for the iPhone 4G, like the iPad?

This is quite an interesting debate. I think that Apple will once again surprise us with the iPhone 4G and demand for it will surpass the iPad easily.

Let us know your thoughts on this. Read the article over at DeviceMag then drop us a comment.

    I'm getting both to fulfill my portable media needs. Here's how I break it down:

    iPhone HD/4G – phone calls, camera still/video, and ipod (music)
    iPad – internet browsing, reading, movies, and games

    Now syncing the two may be questionable since the iPad doesn't have USB 2.0 ports. But then again, I guess Apple's MobileMe answers that 😉

    Hah @ that crazy article. Lot of people with original or 3G (not 3GS) phones that are waiting for the new phone to update. Lot of people that don't have an iPhone yet that are waiting for the new hardware to lock in for the 2 year commitment. I'd bet they sell waaaaaaaaaaaay more iPhones than iPads, probably millions in the first weekend versus 500,000 in the first week. The iPhone is a very established product, highly rated by consumer reports and other reviewers and with an established market for cell phones/smart phones and a ton of apps already available. The iPad is in an emerging market, with a full-featured multi-tasking release expected in the fall, developers still ironing out kinks in their apps (around 3500 iPad-specific apps). iPhones are selling at around 30 million a year, iPad expected to sell 5-12 million this year….
