She is saying they will do 2 different release dates- maybe spring and fall- not 2 phones at the same time. Not saying this is true, but just getting your story straight. Your 2nd point definitely still holds water though. :) Although Rogifan did bring up a pretty solid point.
Not to mention you allow the potential new customers the ability to interact with your photos by holding them in their hands and swiping. Great psychological sales work (even if that's not what you knew you were doing).
