First Apple Watches Launch Today

The first batch of Apple Watches will be shipped to customers who have pre-ordered today, but supply on the high street is extremely limited

Apple will begin shipping its long-awaited Apple Watch to people who have pre-ordered a device today, but anyone hoping to buy one on the high street will almost certainly be out of luck.

The Apple Watch became available for pre-order on April 10, but the first run reportedly sold out within hours, leaving many customers facing shipping delays over over a month.

Apple has not revealed how many Watches have been sold, but market researcher Carl Howe from Think Big Analytics predicts that the initial run of watches was more than 3 million units. read more

Samsung Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge

Samsung Galaxy S6 And S6 Edge

It’s actually pretty difficult to imagine a more important smartphone launch in recent history than the Galaxy S6.

Important in the sense that it was absolutely vital for the manufacturer in question, Samsung, to not only get it right, but to absolutely knock it out of the park.

As always, there was the usual pressure  created by months of hype, rumour-mongering, and the rabid, eager anticipation of millions of Samsung fans, but on top of that you had the fact that Samsung handsets have been a bit disappointing for a while now AND, most crucially of all, the Galaxy S5, the last shot at this, was pretty much a flop. It failed to capture consumers’ imaginations, and did not sell too well at all.

So Samsung knew this time round it needed a BIG hit with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 EDGE –– anything less would’ve been a disaster with dire consequences for the Galaxy S brand and Samsung’s bottom line in 2015. read more
