Rest of 2013 for Apple: No Retina For iPad mini And Other Products We Can Realistically Expect
Tim Cook said no major Apple product launches happening until fall of this year. So, I find it funny that we still need posts from analysts or pundits affirming that. The latest is that from the MacDailyNews/Cult of Mac stating that no new iPhone models will be coming. What's interesting is that the two posts above quoted the same analyst, Peter Misek, as saying that Samsung will carve out a bigger piece of the high-end mobile device market from Apple. It remains to be seen if that is so. The thing is that bigger screen smartphones are gaining steam but there is evidence that they're limited in terms of adopters who really want something that big. On the other hand, Apple's customary 70% of the mobile profit share has shrunk to 57% while Samsung has picked up nearly all of the rest (Fortune).
Let’s go through realistically what we can expect in 2013. More at On Apple.
