It can be considered the Super Bowl of Product Watching. The unveiling of Apple’s next Generation iPhone scheduled for tommorrow promises to be a pr\ivotal event for the whole mobile communications industry. It will set the mark to shoot at for all smartphone competitors foreign and domestic and determine the top choice for technology concerned consumers and involved developers.
It will disappoint some and enthuse others, but in the end the iPhone 5 will provide a baseline for what smartphones are about.
On the other front it will also send strong indications regarding Apple’s course in a post Steve Jobs era.
I am anticipating a surprise or two and hope to learn more about Apple’s plan for the Cloud, iOS 5, possible phone versions and who knows what else.
