How Tesla’s new Pi Phone will kill Apple’s iPhone 14 and why it should be your next choice as well. How does the Tesla Pi Phone stack up to the iPhone 14? Read on to find out!
3 Reasons Why Tesla’s Pi Phone Will Kill Apple’s iPhone
Reason #1: Tesla has a huge advantage in hardware. While Tesla was developing its phones, it was also pioneering electric cars and solar energy. All that experience working with hardware and software means there are few limits to what Tesla can do with its smartphone.
Reason #2: Tesla’s business model will make better use of a smartphone. The Model S is proof that when it comes to using technology like your smartphone, you don’t want to be locked into only one company for software updates or apps. While most smartphones come with operating systems like Android or iOS built-in, those are separate from software companies (like Facebook or YouTube) that provide services on top of those platforms. Tesla will let users choose which software they want—so if an app needs an update, Tesla can send it over the air rather than requiring users to download a new version of an OS. Reason.
Reason #3: Tesla already works with high-performance batteries… Most people expect their phone battery to last about as long as their car battery does—about 8 hours per charge—but automakers have been able to extend that range significantly in recent years due to advancements in lithium-ion battery technology. There’s still room for improvement though, and Tesla could benefit from upgrading existing lithium-ion batteries or inventing new ones entirely. The same is true of other features too. While modern phones are powerful enough to play video games on a small screen, they haven’t yet matched what you can get on a home console like Xbox One or PS5; Tesla’s AI chip would be well-suited for improving those capabilities. Tesla would also be one of few companies capable of building a smartphone with Qi wireless charging built-in—which lets you wirelessly recharge your phone by putting it down on a charging pad like those used by electric toothbrushes.
A Few Details on the New Tesla Phones
Tesla’s new phone will be launched soon.
After months of anticipation, their official press release has given us a few details on what to expect from their flagship phones. The new phones will be called Tesla Pi Phones. They also announced that both of these models would run Android 2.0—not something I was expecting but what can you do? We should all expect one model with a4G connection and another with 5G. This is good news for those who are looking for fast speeds and high data limits, which is usually something we don’t see in major carriers like AT&T or Verizon Wireless here in America. As far as screen sizes go, there were two released: 5 and 7. These measurements translate into 18cm and 22cm respectively—so they’re pretty small! The biggest concern most people have about these phones is how much they’ll cost and how it compares to other similar devices like an Apple smartphone.
Elon Musk has been very secretive about pricing, but I think we can expect to see something around $699 for a 32GB model of their smaller phone and around $799 for a 64GB version. Tesla’s phones will be produced in partnership with Foxconn Technology Group—one of China’s largest contract manufacturers who also produce Android phones under Google and Apple’s watchful eyes. They already have ties with other tech giants like Amazon (you know, Bezos?) so I don’t see why they wouldn’t work with Tesla. The phones will start shipping on May 21st so if you want to check out how small these bad boys are, be sure to keep an eye out for them! But really, what do you guys think?
The Pricing and Potential Features of the New Tesla Phones
Tesla has announced that it will release two new smartphones, both expected to be priced significantly lower than top-of-the-line phones from competitors like Apple. The devices, known as Tesla Pi Phones, are both rumored to have a broad range of features but especially impressive battery life and water resistance. The phones will support wireless charging and solar energy. Tesla is looking to price its phones at about half of what comparable products cost; for example, Apple’s iPhone13 pro max retails for around $1099 while some expect Tesla’s phone to sell for somewhere between $600 and $800 dollars.
Both phones are expected to have most of their components manufactured by partners with some elements coming from startups founded by Tesla itself. Just a few years ago, Tesla was on the brink of bankruptcy. Now it looks poised to become one of America’s fastest-growing tech companies. So how did they do it? According to Tesla executives, We formalized our process from start to finish so we could remove all uncertainty surrounding our business ideas and execution. We here at name consider that if you haven’t formalized your process yet then you’re leaving money on the table because Elon Musk won’t tell you his secrets–you’ll need to figure them out yourself!
What does this mean for Apple?
With Apple poised to launch a new phone in 2022, investors are giddy about prospects for record smartphone sales. But should you join them? Before breaking out the bubbly, consider that there’s another electric car maker launching its own smartphone soon, and it could be a real threat to iOS. Why? It’s Tesla Motors Inc.’s NASDAQ: TSLA Model S dubbed The Pi, short for personal Internet devices, which may be announced as early as next week and will run on Google Inc. NASDAQ: GOOG Android OS 13 Tesla is slated to begin selling its Model X crossover by 2022. iPhone owners might feel safe now, but Tesla just launched an effort to sell out of most of its inventory of 2021 models by year-end
Once 2021 is sold off, most Tesla showrooms around North America will have little inventory remaining until much later in 2023 — when many predict Apple’s product release will be happening. And then comes my prediction: A mass migration from Samsung Galaxy handsets or other smartphones toward what I predict to be a $600-800 MSRP Tesla mobile device running stock Android with few apps initially installed beyond essentials. Sound crazy? If Tesla can get 10 million preorders, who knows? Anything could happen. On top of that scenario being possible, here’s why such a thing would wreak havoc on Apple: No multiyear exclusive contracts: There were no exclusivity deals for Windows 95 PCs vs. Macs back in 1995, so why would one exist today between Apple and any carrier willing to accept non-iPhone payment plans? Look at who was first in line when AT&T Inc.’s exclusivity expired last month: Sprint Corp., followed by Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile US Inc., U.S.
Some people have a love/hate relationship with Tesla.
However, there is one thing we can all agree on and that is Tesla’s recent $2 billion purchase of SolarCity was brilliant. The acquisition will allow Tesla to sell their solar panels to owners of their electric cars. According to Tesla’s latest quarterly earnings report, SolarCity contributed about $1 million in revenue for every one Model S it sold. While that might not seem like much, if you consider that there are over 5,000 Model S’ out on roadways today, you could see how it adds up quickly—and why investors liked what they heard from Elon Musk last week.
In addition to telling Tesla shareholders he planned on ramping up production of new battery technology at Tesla’s gigafactory, he also let them know his company would be releasing its first smartphone later in 2022; which he promised would change everything! Just how big of an impact will Tesla’s PI phone have? Let’s find out… Over 75% of Americans say their next phone will be a laptop, tablet, or hybrid. Mobile devices are increasingly taking on computing tasks traditionally associated with PCs. As many as 65% of Americans say mobile devices do a better job than PCs at things like online shopping, personal email, and paying bills online.
This means that, when it comes to buying a mobile device, you’re going to want one that lets you do all of these things—as well as display your favorite pictures and videos in high definition. Unfortunately, most phones available today can’t keep up with consumer demand. The screen resolution is too low, there are no USB ports for connecting peripherals, and many devices don’t have enough RAM or processing power for people to multitask effectively. That’s why consumers prefer tablets over smartphones for accessing online media like movies and music.
In light of these findings, it’s no surprise that 86% of consumers think it’s important to have a mobile device with a high-resolution display. Consumers also feel they should be able to use their phone as a primary PC, with 67% reporting that they don’t mind giving up some battery life in order to be able to multitask efficiently. So, what’s so special about Tesla’s PI phone? First and foremost, it has more pixels than any other smartphone on sale today. That means you can watch your favorite movies and listen to streaming music at home or out and about without sacrificing quality for convenience. The average consumer spends around five hours per day interacting with media on their devices.
At 10-inches, Tesla’s PI phone has a screen that’s 40% larger than your average smartphone. Because it has a higher pixel density, you can enjoy even sharper videos and photos. If you have sensitive eyes, you may also appreciate its anti-glare display; which makes it easier to view your phone from different angles in bright sunlight. Another thing consumers like about Tesla’s PI phone is its versatility. Thanks to built-in USB ports and an HDMI output port, consumers can connect all of their favorite peripherals—including a keyboard, mouse, printer, or external hard drive—to expand their mobile experience.
As of 2022, people who have a desktop PC spend an average of 6.5 hours per day using their device to interact with media. In other words, your next phone isn’t just for taking pictures and sending text messages; it’s also supposed to be your primary means of consuming online media. By releasing Tesla’s PI phone, Elon Musk is letting consumers know he understands how they want to use their mobile devices—and that he plans on making sure his company meets those needs going forward.
