Thinner? Wider? Details on the iPhone 5 emerge

Jefferies Managing Director Peter Misek today discusses the coming iPhone 5 with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg West.”

Misek spoke with suppliers in Asia and says that the volume ramps are gradually building this summer and that “the timeline and the behavior of the suppliers is very similar, identical, in fact, to similar launches.”

As for pent-up demand, Misek hardly goes out on a limb, considering that every iPhone has accomplished what he predicts for the next-gen iPhone, but states, “We think this could be the largest and quickest ramp in consumer electronics history.”

  1. Interesting – especially the part about falling demand in China. That could have a big impact on Apple sales.

    Emily Chang is so pretty. I watch her every night on Bloomberg West. It’s an entertaining show.

  2. What an ignorant guy.

    There is nothing “mechanical” about current touch screen, and its way of working is not related to measuring “pressure”.

    Apple only uses capacitive touch screens, they brought this technology to masses. Conductivity of finger changes capacity that is formed between hundreds of horizontal and vertical lines.
