Who is buying the iPhone 5? Is it the old customers or is it a new group that hasn't had a iPhone before. I ask because it is a radical shift from the old standard that has been present in all the other "fantastic" magical machines with their perfectly sized ergonomic 3.5" screens.
Are the people buying the iPhone 5, buying it to gain the new larger screen, or is that something they are just putting up with in order to get these other incremental changes that have been detailed above.
True the width is the same (I think) so the average thumb can sweep across the screen at least in one direction, but the height could create a demand for thumb gymnastics, reaching all the way to the top.
How is that working out. Any users? Any reports.
My lady friend is waiting to see if they put the larger screens in new iPods. Is that going to happen?
Seems like some apple customers can't tell one from the other and have no idea what they're looking at buying (I thought this was hilarious):
