The iPhone 5 specs are pretty much what the rumors predicted. I think the 4" screen was an improvement but a 4.3" or 4.7" would have been better. It has excellent specs and I think Apple fans will buy them up. I also think this is the end of the line for the iPhone. Future iPhones will reflect incremental improvements but nothing that will make people really stand up and take notice. Jobs had a lot to do with the iPhone 5 but anything after this will be sans Jobs. Jobs left Apple once before and they had to be rescued by Microsoft with a sizable cash infusion. They damn near went out of business. I hope they learned from that. It may be that it was Apple-Jobs Computer that was a cash machine and with out Jobs, it's just Apple.

I think your analysis is spot on. I think that Apple may be in trouble in the next few years. The definitely have product recognition and a fan base, but it seems that they have already starting to take a bit of a beating over the last iPod Nano release, the iPhone 4S release and now the iPhone 5 with marginal improvements.Seems like they are coasting at best. With aggressive international competitors and marketplaces, they really can't afford to think they can stay on top without innovation.
