Quote from Jobs: "“What have you done that’s so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?”"

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?

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.

Please, forget that "US-centric" mindset from time to time. NFC is a framework that brings services for transport, payment, loyalty, etc... For your information, all of the new POS from Ingenico and VeriFone are now NFC compliant and ready for Paywave and Paypass payment applications. Regarding swipe of credit card, just have a look at the level of fraud. It's huge.

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?

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

Rick, the biggest news on the chip side was that the A6 would be based on a dual-core A15, not a quad-core A9. This is significant as it's the first consumer implementation of the A15, and they seem to have cracked the battery life issue.

That is interesing indeed. I did not see the mention of A15 anywhere - is that reliable? If that is true then it opens a wider market for Apple to deploy the A6. E.g A15 gets around the 4GB limit in memory. This means the A6 could appear in smartbooks (macbook air??) sometime soon.

Hmm.. a larger screen size .. which is what the Galaxy from Samsung has had for some time. Could Samsung now sue Apple for copying its design???
