Apple iPhone 5 Poised to Blow Away Samsung Galaxy S III as Release Date Nears

Editor's note: Please click here for our latest roundup of iPhone 5 speculation.** Is the much-ballyhooed, head-to-head battle between the upcoming iPhone 5 and the just-released Samsung Galaxy S III really much ado about nothing? Will the new iPhone blow Samsung's latest Android device out of the water – or "put it to shame" as one high-profile executive says it will? Android-philes would likely protest, but that's exactly what Terry Gou believes. Gou is the CEO of Foxconn, the Asia-based manufacturer that develops, among many electronic devices, Apple's iPhone and iPad. So obviously this guy has a personal stake in his "shame"ful comment. Gou also has a well-publicized feud with Samsung, which he says has "a company with a track record of snitching on its competitors," according to Focus Taiwan, which quoted the China Times. Gou was talking about Samsung's decision two years ago of reporting the actions of a handful of Taiwanese companies to the European Commission, which was investigating price-fixing. It led to a fine of 434 million euros. Gou urged customers to wait to buy an iPhone 5 this fall – although no, he didn't offer up an actual release date. He made the comments as he announced an expansion of Foxconn's relationship with Sharp, the Japan based provider of televisions, copiers and other electronics. It's a team-up that Gou says will help push the two companies ahead of Samsung in five years' time. Wishful thinking? Yes. But certainly ambitious. wholesale accessories,ipod accessories,ipad accessories,iphone accessories
