from July 2012, Review
Henry Blodget is at it again, throwing out his less than savvy reasoning as to why the iPhone 5 will be a big loser for Apple – because of it's looks. In Blodget's latest column, If The iPhone 5 Really Looks Like This, Apple May Be Screwed..., his "big idea" is that the iPhone 5 looks a lot like the iPhone 4S, which was virtually the same design as the iPhone 4, thus Apple's iPhone 5 will be a flop. Blodget's "logic" stops there.
Blodget ignores the fact that the iPhone 4S blew away smart phone sales figures, yet looked nearly identical to iPhone 4. But the ignorance continue. Blodget also seems unaware that the largest iPhone upgrade cycle in Apple's history will be this Fall, and avoids mentioning China's amazing growth story for Apple. "In short, the Galaxy feels like a next-generation phone." says Blodget. Sorry Henry, but truth be told, the Samsung Galaxy IIIs looks like a smashed down retread of the iPhone 3 and 3GS.
