Apple Supply Checks Indicate In-Store Accessibility For iPhone 5 Improving In Time For Vacation Sales
Apple is aggressively ramping up its iPhone 5 supply chain in order to make sure that customers looking for the smartphone can get their hands on it easily and quickly come the holidays, according to stock checks and supply analysis conducted by Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster (via Fortune). The analyst and his team conducted nightly checks of supplies at 100 Apple Stores in the U.S., and found that stock levels have improved significantly during the past 10 days, with availability of AT&T and Verizon climbing fast, and Sprint also remaining consistent after having risen previously.
Apple also recently improved the availability of its iPhone 5 models via its online store to two weeks, a slight but significant improvement from the 2-3 weeks it has been promising since earlier in November. Based on current availability trends, Piper Jaffray estimates that Apple will have same-day stock of iPhone 5s in most stores within two weeks, Munster concludes in the note he issued to investors Wednesday.
The last few years have been tremendously successful for Apple in terms of holiday iPhone sales, culminating in banner years in 2010 and 2011 thanks to the new fall release schedule for iPhones, which used to go on sale beginning in June. For Apple to continue to capitalize on holiday shopper appetite for its latest smartphone, the company needed to address supply bottlenecks and reported issues with manufacturing partners in order to make sure that customers shopping for the iPhone 5 could find it in stores and online. Supply chain optimization is one of CEO Tim Cook’s specialties, and it seems like the efforts he and his company have taken so far will indeed help make sure everyone who wants to give an iPhone 5 as a gift this year should be able to.

Oh, Carphone Warehouse– it just can’t seem to keep exactly what it knows about the LG / Google Nexus 4 under lock and secret. Simply days after briefly listing the phone on its website, purported in-store displays for the yet unannounced gadget have leaked out to Android Authority. While practically of the information are the exact same as exactly what we saw last (1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 SoC, 8MP cam, 12-hour talk time score, etc.), the listing exposes that the “sim-free” phone itself will certainly sell for & pound; 390 (about $ 504)– previously we ‘d just seen the per-month prices at & pound; 31, which is additionally discovered right here.

While Japanese Xperia fans might have to wait a little while longer to get their hands on the Xperia GX and Xperia SX, how about some sample videos to make said extremities clammy in the meantime? So, they’re not going to win any Oscars (unless there’s a new category for “Best shaky in-store footage”) any time soon, but the videos over the break give a taste of what we can expect from those 13- and 8-megapixel sensors. In time-honored Hollywood tradition, we’re still wondering if the US remake will be just as good.
It looks as if B&N will beat Amazon to market with the first front-lit ereader. The image here is by way of The Digital Reader and suggests B&N is set to launch an updated Nook Simple Touch Reader sooner verses later. Called The Nook Simple Touch Reader with GlowLight, the signage advertises a Nook with an illuminated screen. This comes just days after Devin spied a very similar Kindle.
The Kindle Devin spotted used a front-lit screen that produced an even glow over the screen. “The screen lit up evenly with a rather cool light,” he said and went on to describe that the glow increased in intensity as the ambient light decreased. Seeing how this speculation is based on of in-store signage, it’s unclear how the B&N version will work but it must be similar. The signage advertises a Nook Simple Touch Reader with GlowLight.
The timing is right for a new Nook reader. The last generation was introduced on June 1, 2011. The new hardware is probably done. B&N is likely putting the final touches on the marketing plan and will release the new models within the coming weeks.

Did you take umbrage with Barnes & Noble’s efforts to hoard all your Nook Tablet storage for its own content? Well, the book seller has made good on its promise to reassign a portion of your 16GB hard drive, opening up 8GB for personal content and leaving 5.5GB for Nook Shop content. As we said before, you’ll need to physically take your Nook Tablet to the bricks and mortar outlets to get the storage tweak. Readers that decided to go for other Android-laced tablets have also been gifted with a Nook app update, adding support for comics and related graphical literature — just make sure that the slab is running Android 2.2 or higher.
In a press event panel that included almost every big studio executive — sans Disney — Walmart announced an exclusive in-store disc to digital conversion service. Starting April 16th, in more than 3,500 stores, you’ll be able to bring your DVD or Blu-ray discs in and have ‘em added to your Vudu movie collection. The privilege of watching movies, you already bought, online via Vudu will cost you $ 2, but if you own the DVD, it’ll cost you $ 5 to upgrade your digital copy to HD. In addition, you can now buy UltraViolet movies via Vudu and watch them via other UV supported sources — we assume this is a two-way street, but it isn’t spelled out that way in the press release (after the break). This is easily the biggest news for the, now beta badged, UltraViolet service but most of our complaints persist until there’s single-sign on and the standard downloadable CFF (common file format) is a reality.

Hollywood’s latest digital ecosystem offers lots of promise, but in the five months since its release, it couldn’t be further from delivering on it. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Walmart will finally make use of its membership to the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem by offering in-store disc to digital UltraViolet upgrade opportunities, for a small price of course. No doubt UltraViolet can use all the help it can get, but this is far from what we were hoping for when we learned Walmart would be in the mix — we were hoping for the ability to buy and watch UltraViolet movies via Walmart’s Vudu. Beyond our personal wishes, this no where near the big revelation that most consumers would actually find interesting: the release of the Common File Format which promises universal offline playback of our movie collection.
