Along with tablet computing, these devices have changed the way people organize their lives and consume content
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
The latest infographic from digital publishing start-up Uberflip comes on the heels of Apple announcing and releasing details of the new iPhone 5. It takes a look at how the iPhone has grown exponentially in many ways since its inception just five years ago in 2007.
Will the iPhone 5 be a game changer like some previous generations of the brand? Most people think so based on sales estimates alone; 10 million units in the first month, 0.5% bump to US GDP – clearly the expectations are high.
Uberflip doesn’t make any predictions, but it does take a look into the past to see how far the iPhone has come in just 5 years.
“When I started Uberflip back in 2008, the iPhone was just a blip on the mobile device landscape, and Apple’s app store hadn’t even opened,” says Yoav Schwartz, Uberflip CEO. “Along with tablet computing, these devices have changed the way people organize their lives and consume content.”
