 Well, I do pay attention, actually, close attention, and I have seen one. The most popular phone so far that I've seen in the wild has been the Iphone 5 followed by various Android phones, mainly Samsung, quite a few 5s (which still could outnumber any specific Android variety, not sure), some 4 or 4s and then, still, a few blackberries.
Katy sees Tim in a cab and runs after it banging on the window.   Katy screaming: "Tim, will you be releasing 2 new iPhones next year?!"   Tim yelling at the cab driver: "I've told you twice, hit the peddle!"   Katy, still screaming: "You'll be releasing iPhones twice next year?!"   Tim, exasperated: "Go, man... GO!!"   Katy writes in notebook: "Tim said twice next year is a go."
 It seems that Apple likes to bring out the new stuff just when people are getting into the buying mood.
 I know this to be true because not only did Katy Huberty discuss this with Cook but Gene Munster also sent this out in a note to investors. I think it's great that I'll be able to make V8 juice with my iPhone.
"... Katy Huberty..."  
 Although what you say may be true... it still doesn't make this story any more credible.
 I've been around long enough to see all sorts of reports about this company or that company increasing output, starting output, decreasing output, stopping output, to know that there is as much bullshit as there is credibility. Believe what you want to believe.
 If you say so.
 One report is just as believable as the other.
We can stomp and scream all we like about how great the iPad is when compared to the competition but it's news like this, when filtered by the mainstream media, that can kill any momentum Apple might have had in this arena.   I'm guessing the HDX will sell really well this season and I'm thinking the Fire will just continue to get better. Two years ago I thought Amazon would throw in the towel about 6 months after Christmas but it looks like it's in it for the long haul.
