I expect 2013 will be the year that apple starting to be stagnant and irrelevant.

My take on prediction/analyst...
Apple sales 3% less iphone, and drop big time in market share.

Reason.... 4" iphone 5 (or 5S) starting to look uncool compared to 1080p 5" droid. All the cool guy/gal will eventually move to android.

I predict Microsoft & Nokia plant more astroturfer.
I predict MS WP8 will NOT sell well
I predict Lumia series named the most failure of phone 2013.

I predict Microsoft will say WP9 will fix the problem.
I predict BB10 is a 2-months success, after that, no one will buy it.
I predict BB finally bankrupt.
I predict Apple market share will ERODE more than 20%

Microsoft is continuously having a bigger market share with the new wp8 devices and as for Rim,people will still think of buying the new bb devices but it won't be as huge as that of its competitors. And for apple,that is the only thing I agree with you

That is simply not true about Microsoft.
Even if they have 4x increase in sales compared to previous quarter , they will LOSE the market share.
Here's how it will grow compared to previous quarter :
+ 20-35 million units of android (10-15% increase )
+ 20-30 million units of iPhone (up to 100% increase)
+ 8-12 million units of WP8(for up to 300% increase in sales actually)

This would give a quarterly total of:
~ 145M android phones shipped
~ 45-55M iPhones shipped
~ 12-16M Windows phones shipped

Getting the math now?

Wait a minute, is that sarcasm??
Or a true fanboy rant??
That's funny cause i think none of your analysis holds water. Open your eyes boy...
You cannot comprehend what people will do cause you can't get in their head.
Now as much as i want the headline to be true, i'll be skeptical. I don't trusts analysts.

Ha, typical troll you are. Bashing on Nokia and BB on SammyxApple article.

Anyways, time to open eyes. Lumia series won't be a failure. WP8 is getting better each day. Updates are coming real fast, and thanks to quasi-closed ecosystem, the updates don't take months as in case of Android.

Lumia 920 sold very well everywhere. It still is taking away merit in Amazon wireless' sales charts. In china it's outrageously popular. Everyone knows that in Europe it's selling well. Indians, Brazilians are waiting with huge interest.

So, go troll somewhere else. Nokia/MS isn't aiming for top yet, current goals are much modest, knowing bad history of WP. So I'll stick with optimism.

The iPhone has already started the road to stagnation. For us it only sold out on the first 2 deliveries the first week it launched,then the rush was over. Now its outsold by android at least 10:1,the galaxy s3 outselling it at least 4:1. There are still the few random Ifans upgrading from the 4s in the misguided belief they are gettinga totally new product but it seems even the most dormant Ifans have seen the truth

I don't know about US and Europe, but in Asian countries Sammy might get hurt because of rise of local manufacturers who are improving quality while being much affordable even than Sammy. In the markets which don't run on contract system this means a lot.

Just for example check out the daily interest and user rating charts on GSMArena,

http://www.gsmarena.com/

How a local manufacturer managed to beat even globally popular S3. And most of the hits are only from a single country (Which developed words looks down on), India.

I am Indian and I see this company grabbing most of the business here, mostly inflicting damage to Sammy's turf. I see number of people buying that phone.

The one that was hurted the most in low end market were nokia.

Nokia Asha line were good, but not great. It's losing the sales compared to CHEAP CHINA/INDIA android.

In malaysia, low end market now opted for CHEAP android. Nokia is a sure dead.

Agree. Nokia Asha line is also in danger. I never assumed Asha series to be a success but somehow it managed.

And similarly, it's also pulling the customers that were hoping to opt for phones like Galaxy S Duos, Ace, Y, Wave. Even S2! Same goes for all other companies' low and mid tier phones.

Makes sense. I mean such a one aimed portfolio that apple bragged about will ultimately limit sales with less choices.

AGREE!!!!

Apple should make iphone JUMBO instead of iphone MINI.
The current line is too mini if compared to android 4.3",4.5",4.7".

Samsung makes great phones but IMO it'll be better if they'll improve their design and build quality much like HTC's.

For once analyst thinking right at least. Cause Apple knows how to redesign their phone unlike Apply just put a big fruit on their same phone in last 5yrs or so people will still buy it and don't care what the phone looks like as long they get their apps. SAMSUNG WILL CRUSH APPLE again 2013. Can't wait to see their newest commercials

Apple needs to allow customization and choices for its consumers.... It needs to allow people to turn the "iPhone" into a "MiPhone." Samsung (or Android in general) allows options for people. People already complain about being stuck in a 2-year contract with carriers because they can't change it, they're locked in it. Apple worsens the contract because you can't even customize the phone to make it yours. So now, not only are people stuck in a 2-year contract, they're stuck with a phone they can't even make "theirs." At least with android you have more to choose from than just a "round-edged rectangle with a round button inside of it that has a little round-edged sqaure inside that."
