This analysis maybe closer to the truth than the other one, The iP5 the best one yet, but incrementally better, i hope wish it's not....! it won't all of a sudden take20% market share, the same way iPhone exploded into the world. That ere is over, now it's head to head competition (which we all win with by having better phones)....!

Just another typical iphone. People should be careful on what they buy, and follow the popular culture

No way it crashes and burns. None. Too many loyal customers. Maybe it disappoints, but even hinting that this new iPhone won't sell well and hold up well just is silly. The only question is: Does it expand the fan-dom? Can Apple hold all it's market share, or do we talk this time in 2013 how it lost a couple more % points of sales?

I hold firm: Apple has peaked. It will sell near record levels at launch, and well all year, but not expand it's sales. It may slip a little. Until they respond to the markets needs, they will lose a little luster.

But this version will be fine. Apple will make its utility bills payment.
