I think this prediction will come true. Not because I think it's a great phone, but because I think apple has brain-washed more than 40+M people into thinking that innovation is too mainstream.
If Apple selling 10 million iPhone, Apple should be eternally grateful to Samsung, which manufactures the processor A6 of Iphone.
I dont know why but it could sell.
Shorly no one will of them will have the woooooow factor. Dont forget the battery is not that big, screen is iphone 4s only longer!, no microsd, same camera, same IOS and overall its longer and thiner iphone4s (yep I didn't say anything about the processor as I believe that the iphone4s is fast).
I'm fine with anything that helps single out the idiots everywhere around us.
well for sure it will sell like cupcakes. we need to consider that not everyone actually knows the diversity of the choice available to them in terms of smartphones. also, those who want to upgrade their iphones thinking: hey it got a new aspect ratio: why not check it out.
for sure the iphone5 didnt bring anything new which it can really boast about but hey the community following tech news is just a small group of people compared to the market out there.
if people want to buy it, let it be. its their choice but tbh i dont like the company on the overall for all that nonsense suing going on

Millions of people disagree, you get proofs in few months, just wait and see whats going to happen :)
Coz it will.
Especial as it got the best OS ever, all according to Apple themselves.
Even more so as, the fact that 12 millions of IOS user been hacked and got their private information stolen. Not a single word of that or how unsafe the IOS is. In the big news.
So now you can buy yourself an expensive phone and let hackers screw you over, several times
Eminyang, 13 Sep 2012This is going to be the greatest and smartest phone ever produced. No competitor can match it.... moreOn what basis is this the best, its got a small screen, no nfc, a similar camera to the 4s. its all basically stuff thats been there for half a year or more.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012Dream on... Kinda like android users have to do in order to get their phones to be adequately ... moreI have to agree with you sir, apple has tweaked there software to adapte to there 3rd generation phones, but andriod has been doing this unoffically from a team called cyrogen, they have made major leaps for google in these terms
i would not buy it to be serious as no INNOVATION in it. And its too small for today technology. Apple is doing nothing on this launch no creativity and expecting us to buy it 660 euros. Seriously, is just for the BRAND itself i dont think so this time Apple. Maybe the press or blogger are give some consolation about this matter but this time you're not doing well. Actually, i was expecting to dump my iphone 4s for this. Alas, thats will not be happen anyway. Too bad!
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2012Ruining it? You do realize that Steve was involved with so many LONG TERM projects at Apple t... moreeven gsma disagrees with you.. and i quote..
"On the negative side, the iPhone 5 screen is only 4 inches big, and not only this, but only height was added, which, for instance, would bring no real benefit in most games and would help web browsing only in landscape mode. The camera is mostly the same as on the 4S, and LTE connectivity in Europe is still as scarce as water in the Sahara to be really worth it. Finally, the new sleeker connectivity jack renders all previous docking accessories obsolete and yet, provides no intercompatibility with the all-reigning microUSB. Not to mention the new nano SIM card, which would be a major pain in the butt, if you’ve got an unlocked iPhone and you’d like to swap SIMs frequently.
Honestly, I’m already tired of hearing Apple’s stale remarks how the new iPhone or the new iPod was Apple’s best thing so far. What I wanted to see today on stage was pure innovation, something that would again open new doors and make other manufacturers lose their breath in trying to catch up.
Instead, what I got was a predictable phone with unexciting specs; a phone that I would hardly call cutting edge, top-of-the-line, and all those labels that usually go hand in hand with Apple’s latest. After all, the iPhone has always been the most expensive SIM-free smartphone on the market. "
hardly think the ip5 leaves any new high end smart phone in dust lol
Samsung: Right Apple, I'm going to prevent you from selling the iphone by sueing you.
Apple: Okay, hey TOSHIBA, fancy some new business?
Toshiba: WOOHOO! $$$$$'s
Ya this is possible, if iphone 4 sell in 30000 Indian Rs., I think iphone 3gs would be discontinue or decrease price atleast
This is going to be the greatest and smartest phone ever produced. No competitor can match it. So brilliant. I love it . Can't wait to touch, feel and behold it soonest.
i believe that
Apple is very good at marketing. They make people believe that their products are the best. They say that they know what the customer wants. But the fact is they dictate us what we supposed to want.
My fb friend told me this morning that apple is not about design, but performance.
"oh God, why?"
