Charts break down Apple iPhone shipments by region
Apple iPhone 5 release. Singh sees the Americas capturing 22% of Q4 iPhone 5 shipments. With 22 million units of the Apple iPhone 5 expected to ship in the Americas in the current quarter, he forecasts that 60-70 million units will ship in the region over the first four quarters of availability. In Europe, which demonstrates sales patterns similar to the U.S., he sees 40-50 million units of the Apple iPhone 5 shipping in the first year. That drops down to the 35 to 45 million units expected to ship in the Asia Pacific and China region during the next four quarters and the 10-13 million iPhone 5 units estimated to ship in Japan over the year.
For the full year, the bottom line comes out to an estimate of 160 million to 170 million units of the Apple iPhone 5 to be shipped globally. Whether or not Apple iPhone 5 sales hold to this estimate, it still represents a nice bit of change for Apple to add to its current pile of cash.

Knowing Apple, price slash will be non-existent in the first year!!
The EGO still hovers around each Applet.

There was a surge in sales for the iPhone 4S because of the demand for Siri but iPhone5 does not offer anything new design-wise or software-wise. The chart suggests that the previous iterations had a somewhat similar shipment rate except iPhone 4S.
Add to all this the insane pricing of around US $1764 for the 16gb version in huge south-east asain markets like India and China does not help Apple's cause.
If the demand for sale is not there then the shipment numbers automatically decline.
I am not biased, I am just providing a critical analysis.

I think the 4" screen and 4G technology brings a lot more to the iPhone than what Siri does.
I'd like to see this revisited once a couple of quarters are in the books.

I'd agree. I think the 5 is a much more compelling device than either the 4s or the 4. (Though I think those two were better looking)

PA, get your facts straight.
This estimate is for the entire iPhone line, not just iPhone 5, for gosh sake.

Phonearena? More like iPhonearena....
Anyways I also don't get why people are saying the iP5 isn't a worthy upgrade from the 4s when they said the upgrade from the iP4 to the 4s was necessary. With a large screen, LTE, if anything this is the most worthy upgrade yet; although the iP5 definitely isn't the best choice for someone looking for an upgrade.
