Setting the size of the display for the applications community is a BIG deal. Here Samsung et. al. vs. Apple will create issues. The camera on the iPod Touch could also shake up the DSC point-and-shoot market...maybe. But LTE and Lightning, that's just playing catch up.

I heard an interesting take on NFC in the iPhone as I was milling about the three-ring circus outside the Apple event. Google has taken the NFC initiative, so now it's actually in Apple's best interest not to adopt it in iPhone. Apple's best bet, according to this theory, is to use competing technology for cashless payment, etc.

Re NFC: I am told there are still a fragmented set of ways to do NFC payments so there is market building to be done, and that's not something Apple does. Also, what does NFC give consumers they don't have with the swipe of a credit they are carrying anyway?

IPhone 5 will sell well. Software is just so well integrated with hardware

What else can we expect on the iPhone5? NFC is not what I want but battery life is. BTW, I like the headphone design. Is the iPhone5 using the new chip scale SIM or the same as iPhone4?

Re NFC, I think you are right. A lot of infrastructure building is required before the NFC phone becomes useful. Of course, if it is a place like Japan, where NTT Docomo can create a closed NFC environment, your NFC phone works everywhere, and it is actually pretty cool.

For those of us looking for practical NFC implementations, there is a way to do it -- China style. China Mobile is using SIM card to embed NFC technology, so that consumers need to just replace their SIM cards instead of phones. Read the story I just posted here: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4396106/NFC-enabled-mobile-phones---China-style

RF-SIM wont work with the iphone as there is no microsim design. Also CMCC SH has stopped the RF-SIM service, according to 10086

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
