By this time you may have probably heard so many rumours and leaks about the iPhone 5 that you can write a whole story on it. Rumours after rumours, we have been bombarded with so many that I don’t even remember how many times I have seen the word iPhone 5 this hour alone. Well iPhone 5 or the new iPhone whichever one you prefer calling is expected to be the most anticipated smartphone of this year, and analysts agree on that.
We know that iPhone 5 is going to create a huge impact on the whole smartphone ecosystem and now FBR Capital analyst Craig Berger agrees on that. Mentioning iPhone 5 to be the “most impactful” device so far in Apple’s history.
It seems that every analyst has upped their expectations regarding iPhone 5.
Craig Berger (via allthingsD) expects Apple to sell around 250 million iPhone 5 creating the biggest impact in Apple’s history:
We expect the iPhone 5 … has the potential to generate the most promising device upgrade cycle in Apple’s history,” Berger declares, going on to say, “We calculate that the device represents an opportunity to generate earnings of $50 per share throughout its life cycle. We estimate that Apple should sell 250 million iPhone 5 units at an average ASP of $575, generating nearly $144 billion in revenue, $77 billion in gross profit, and $47 billion in net income.”
Berger also notes that if Apple strikes a deal with China Mobile the world’s largest cellular company in terms of subscribers, iPhone 5 is going to get a huge boost maybe even shattering the record held by the iPhone 4S when it got launched
Well by this time we simply know everything there is to know about the iPhone 5. I’m not sure how Apple is going to surprise us!
