Iphone 4 Sales To Jump Due To Its - Show Me Now - Time Response Application

Updated on December 6, 2013

The iPhone 4

The iPhone’s launch was marked with hype and great expectations. The phone’s advent was well received with a few misgivings over what it could not accomplish. There were loud outcries about its pricing, absence of Wi-Fi and 3g connectivity among many other complaints.

The manufacturer (Apple) took criticism constructively and re-modified the phone to a level where few producers could afford to compete with it. The phone was gradually accepted as more and more users purchased it for the very first time. Soon enough, supply could not meet demand.

The dawn of 9th of February, 2011 saw Apple announce “iPhone 4 on Verizon is here”, to the chagrin of other worthy competitors. The coming of a new version of the iPhone heralds higher standards to live up to by mobile phone manufacturers. This, of course, is never regarded as welcome news in that it poses insurmountable challenges that conjure nightmares in the minds of many phone makers. A casual look at its specifications might lend credibility to this claim.

The Real Time Response ‘Show me Now” Application

With the many questions we need answered, Apple has just added a "Show me now" application that is set to revolutionize the phone's use. I believe the phone’s utility has leapt upwards with promise of more hands stretching out for the iPhone due to its ability to respond to your urgent questions. Just activate the application and the phone shows you how to do almost anything.

The allure of a phone that can address your needs without interacting with experts turns the phone into a mobile expert. This application enables the phone to help the user to solve a myriad of problems. It turns the iPhone into a valuable asset you will not want to leave behind.

Apple says you can now buy the phone online and even get free shipping. If you can’t collect it immediately, you can make reservations for a latter pick up at your convenience. The other option is that of physically buying from your favourite store on a first-come, first-served basis.

Other appliances accompanying the set are Apple earphones with remote and microphone, dock connector to USB Cable, USB power adapter and documentation.
