More analysts agree Apple iPhone 5 unveiling will be the main event, but not Apple’s last one for 2012
If you still haven’t caught the Apple iPhone 5 virus that’s been plaguing all news recently, you’d definitely do so in the coming couple of days just before Apple’s big announcement on Wednesday (stay tuned, we’ll be covering all of it!). But while everyone agrees about this being the “main event,” now more analysts concur that the iPhone unveiling won’t be Apple’s last event for the year.

“All eyes turn to the ‘main event,’ but not the last event this year,” Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White said.

The analyst issues a research note on Monday morning praising Apple and calling the upcoming announcement the “biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history.” While this might sound funny for industry watchers caring only about the hardware, from a financial standpoint White might have a lot of reason.



Most recently, Apple stock hit a record high over $680 ashare and with the usual fluctuations around the launch, analysts are bullish about the company’s future.

"While this might sound funny for industry watchers caring only about the hardware, from a financial standpoint White might have a lot of reason." That is the point. I would hate to see Apple turning into a company that matters in the tech world only for financial reason. But with the iPhone 4S, it did a good job being one.

nah, I'm aimlessly complaining. I love reading articles whether it's about apple, samsung, android, wp, nokia, lg, or motorola. the thing is, there's so many articles today that's all about apple. Can't they just wait for the announcement. Like this one. it's annoying you know..

I think you guys might be the only ones with the "Apple iPhone 5 Virus". I haven't seen any others site with this much coverage of repeating articles.

We know the analysts too well, Apple shares are the biggest cash cow for them so it's hardly a surprise that they try to make big Apple noise from even tiny Apple trivialities. “biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history.” smh

The glass screens of the iPhone 4 reportedly shatter at a rate 82% higher than earlier versions of the phone. This led consumers to bring a lawsuit claiming that Apple ads boasting about the glass were deceptive. The consumers are for now out of luck. So what's next on this front of innovation?

SGSII"s screen was more durable than the iPhone 4, but the SIII is more fragile. I'm guessing their shatter rate is more than 82% higher. Any lawsuits?

Samsung didnt promise their customers magic. when you market something as better than everyone else, it better darn well be, otherwise you open yourself up to all sorts of lawsuits, frivolous or not.
