For these consumers, insurance is key to avoiding the downtime from a phone loss.
ATLANTA, Ga. (PRWEB) August 11, 2012
Excitement is building for the release of the new Apple iPhone 5. According to a very recent Reuter’s news report, Sharp who is the maker of the iPhone screens has just started shipping new 4 inch screens to factories in China for their final assembly into an iPhone. Product shipments could start as early as September but more likely the formal roll-out could come in October or November as dealers inventories begin to fill for the official fall launch.
Besides a new larger 4 inch screen, to stay competitive with the larger format Androids, it’s speculated that the cost of a new iPhone could be as much as $800. This is a sizable investment and along with that investment a buyer should consider taking steps to protect it from loss.
According to a New York Daily News report “half of the 16,000 robberies in the first 10 months of 2011 involved technological devices, and that iPhones account for over 70 percent of all stolen cell phones on subways and buses.” The new phone will be like walking around with $800 in your pocket, and thieves will target device owners. But there is more than the issue of theft to worry about; there is water damage, breakage due to drops out of purses and pockets without the owner’s awareness.
