Apple Inc. (AAPL), Google Inc (GOOG) & Other Techies Prepare for Fall 2013 Clash

Companies in the tech industry clash on a regular basis. Just ask Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG), Samsung and others how this feels.

Let’s put it this way: the tech industry is not for the weak of heart. Any company that is unable to take the heat is going to get run over by the competition.

Tim Cook at Apple and Larry Page at Google never back down from a challenge. This is why these guys are great leaders. It is also why Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Google are always talked about as being at the top of many markets.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Smartphone Showdown

There is no way of avoiding it. Apple and Google are on a collision course this fall, with the smartphone market the target.

When early September rolls around, you can expect Samsung, powered by the Android operating system, to release its new flagship models prior to the opening of IFA 2013.

This is something discussed in great detail by Daniel Shin and Steve Shen of Digitimes.

Not to be outdone, Apple is expected to announce details surrounding its next generation iPhone this fall as well.

Cupertino has something else going for it: the possibility of announcing a cheaper iPhone.

Jay Yarow of Business Insider explains that a cheap iPhone could be coming, but that it may be more expensive than many are expecting.

Is it is better to be the first company to announce new products or the second? Samsung is expected to be up first at IFA, announcing its Galaxy Note 3 along with other products.

From there, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is up to bat and all eyes will be on the company’s new smartphone. If a cheaper iPhone is also announced, you can expect Cupertino to steal the show. This is what people have been waiting on, and it will definitely send ripples through the smartphone market (especially consumers in emerging markets).

This fall is going to be epic. What appears to be a battle right now is going to turn into a full blown war, with Apple and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) in the middle of all the action.

The clash of the smartphone titans is coming at us like a train barreling down the tracks. Will the announcements this fall change the position of these hedge fund managers: David Einhorn, Christopher Hansen, and Jeffrey Edwards?

The video below takes a closer look at the potential of a cheaper iPhone:
