It is very reasonable to see iOS 5.1 release in February since Apple will hold an event in early March to reveal iPad 3.
It is very simple to see long line when new iPhone available in any specific country but have you ever think that it will be with violence? Of course it is in China, when many people rush to buy iPhone but seem like the line won’t work now.
In Beijing Apple Store, crowds of people on the street are so eager to get one iPhone 4S that they can’t wait for their turn so violence occurred. They just fought each other to get to the new device quickly.
Responding to this case, Apple immediately stop selling new iPhone in Beijing which make their fans angry and impatiently waiting to buy one. This time violence turns to direct to Apple that they start to throw at the Apple Store until the police clear them. Wait for another day!

This survey was conducted by ChangeWave which is specializing in market analysis. There were over 4,000 customers in North America were involved in the survey.
This is not something strange since the most of iPhone 4S users are so satisfy with the new iPhone and willing to stay with Apple for the next product. With this success, Apple has a very strong stand on the top even with strong competitors.
However one thing that would make Apple worry is the increase of its main rival, Samsung. Samsung will also experience increase from 5% to 13%. Both Samsung and Apple have done many great job that Samsung has Galaxy S II and Galaxy Nexus while iPhone has Siri on its iPhone 4S.
However we are still waiting to see how the two companies compete in 2012.
