iPhone 5 to be “biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history”

I didn’t need an analyst to tell me this one. But for anyone that did need it, Topeka Capital analyst Brian White has told us that he believes the iPhone 5 will be the ”biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history.” If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t really know what will. The report talks about how he is estimating there to be 5-5.5 million devices sold in the first 3 days, breaking the iPhone 4S record of 4 million in 3 days. For the September quarter alone he is saying that they will sell 10-12 million total iPhones.

The iPhone 5 is expected to be announced this coming Wednesday at Apple’s special event, with the name being hinted at in the above invitation. It is expected to include things such as global LTE, a taller screen, and a smaller 9-pin charging port. With rumor after rumor coming in over the past few months, I am beyond excited to get my hands on the device.

What do you think? Do you agree? Are you preordering the iPhone 5? Let us know in the comments.

    This is most likely an overenthusiastic exaggeration.  Biggest iPhone upgrade, yes.  Biggest Tech upgrade, eh… doubtful.  With that said, I love Apple products and am excited to get my hands on the new phone regardless of any “Oh, Android already has that” upgrades.  Apple has never really been on the bleeding edge – what they do do (and do well) is take the leading edge and refine it into a wonderful user experience.
    Who knows, maybe Apple has been able to keep something truly amazing under wraps and this isn’t an exaggeration.  We’ll see tomorrow morning!
