The iPhone 5 will be top smartphone in the 2013 smartphone arena, says J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz.
The new iPhone will be launched this September. It will have support for 4G LTE and other upgrades, the iPhone 5 will make a big splash this year, ensuring its dominance into 2013.
“We think that a combination of revolutionary hardware enhancements and software-driven services (i.e., Passbook, Maps, FaceTime over cellular) stand to reaffirm the iPhone as the leading smartphone in 2013,” Moskowitz wrote in an investors note out today.
The iPhone celebrates its fifth birthday tomorrow. Despite several doubts about that initial phone, Apple sold a million of them in the first 74 days. The company has since managed to sell more than 218 million iPhones, generating around $150 billion in sales.
