Before I dare utter another word, I'd like to make it known that when it comes to the battle of the mobile ecosystems, I'm completely impartial. I love iOS, iPhone, and Apple products in general, but there's something about Android, namely Android smartphones, that always has me flirting with the likes of HTC One, among others. There's no doubt, at least, to my mind, that Tim Cook and his team have pushed a pivotal piece of software in iOS 8, adding a number of features that many have long since pined for, but there are still some features that I really miss whenever I'm using an iPhone.
So after all the talk, all the leaks and a healthy dose of speculation, it's finally been announced. The leaks might have left us with less of a surprise than Samsung would have liked, but the Galaxy S5 is now official, and everyone's talking about it.
In about 17 hours from the time I type this, Apple will open the doors at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, California where they will be announcing the next iPhone. We have seen plenty of rumors and reports and leaks over the past few weeks and months which give a definite shape to the illusive device’s hardware, but there’s one thing in the air that is still heavily discussed and, so far, inconclusive: the next iPhone’s name.
Apple has already radically altered a few different markets in its time. The company changed the way music is sold and distributed, for instance, and few could argue that Apple was not the driving force behind the smartphone market as it is today.
