I don't think Apple will stick to Jobs plans you can see that in the Ipad mini. And larger phone screens in Iphone. Cook is great at getting the best prices for the newest tech and then being able to keep that advantage over the period of the product life cycle. Apple fight with samsung is going to hurt them in the future as samsung apart from being the one of the largest manufacturers of components also sells its own devices and is able to bring economies of scale into action with newer tech.
