This is roughly what the mobile device market is going to look like next year:



If you plan to listen to investment advice from PatNY or Barron's "analysts," you may as well throw your money in the toilet.

Again, how people get paid for this and how people can take this industry seriously is beyond me.
Isn't it funny how you poo-poo other people's comments, while offering yours as godsend? Your chart falls into the "so blatantly obvious as to be worthy of printing on the inside of a fortune cookie" category.

Yup. Should be so obvious that it doesn't need a thread started about it.

I wonder what Apple is going to do about this. It seems like they've already surrendered to the will of the people by increasing the length with the latest iteration. I wonder if the next one will be even larger or if they're going to hold the line.

There's a rumour making the rounds that apple will offer a range of sizes this year. For whatever it's worth.

That chart is wrong. You have overlapping numbers so that makes the entire chart incorrect and invalid. May as well just delete it.

The problem Apple has is the accessories. If Apple does what's right and makes it wider, then it definitely won't fit in the docks/speaker systems and that means that manufacturers will have to make yet more new devices for the new phone. Apple is in a lose lose situation unless they include a dock with each phone that then connects to the speaker system or whatever so the current models can be discontinued and new accessories made only once.

Read my post again. That's not what it says. It says your chart is wrong and needs to be deleted. You have doubled up on the categories and thus invalidated all of the data. You've made the chart worthless and evey piece of data is wrong. You blew it big time.

'Tis just someone having a bad New year... hey, mod your chart to say 4-4.9999" then 5-5.9999" etc and it might be precise enough... some get your point but I guess others just prefer nitpicking rather than intent...

I think Barclays and other analysts are right. Apple will bend further to the pressures of market forces and come out with a 4.5-5" iPhone by mid-2014, if not this year.

Excellent point. But has backward compatibility with third-party accessories prevented Apple from changing their designs in the past? I think selling product will be more important to them than pissing off customers with older iPhone docking accessories.
