Apple’s New iPhone 4G: Profits could be damaged

We have a new report on the Apple iPhone 4G device to share with you now, which reveals that future Apple sales of the upcoming device could be ‘immensely damaged’, as a result of the prototype leak by Gizmodo.

According to this article from CNN Money, new court documents have been released, in which Apple’s attorney George Riley has condemned Gizmodo’s actions and warned that the leak would have a serious negative affect for Apple.

A quote from him reads: “By publishing details about the phone and its features … people that would have otherwise purchased a currently existing Apple product would wait for the next item to be released, thereby hurting overall sales and negatively [a]ffecting Apple’s earnings.”

You could argue that the phone was always going to be released anyway, and that this isn’t really an issue since everyone will still buy the handset regardless of if it was leaked or not.

Riley added that the estimated loss of earnings for Apple as a result of this leak could be ‘huge’. Give us your thoughts on this.

Do you think Apple are being slightly greedy, or do you believe Riley’s comments that sales will now be seriously affected?
