Sameer Singh of TechThoughts took a look at Apple iPhone sales by region on a quarter-by quarter basis and finds to no surprise that the launch quarter is the high water mark for recently launched versions of Apple's iconic smartphone with subsequent declines in future quarters...

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.
