Sculley? Surely you're not talking about that guy that drove Apple into the ground. No one cares what he has to say, and should go back to selling sugar water.
I loved my iP4. Gave my nearly flawless iP4 to my sister a week ago after using my new iP5 for a month. I still think it's a great design and I prefer the durability of the glass panels as opposed to the aluminum my iP5 is made from. However, on the flip side, the thinness and light weight of the iP5 makes the iP4 seems like a brick. I love the 4" screen. It's only slightly larger than the iP4 screen, but still a one-hand-use device. They really did a good job on it. 4G/LTE is great.

But honestly.... if they have limited capacity to build phones, and limited people, and more money is made on the iPhone 5....
If I am Apple/Foxconn i am putting my people on making iPhone 5s, letting the 4 inventory levels run a lower.
Here comes another of my bad analogies...
Reporter walks into McDonald's and orders a Fish sandwich, and is told they are out of them. The clerk offers a burger instead.
The next morning, the New York Times reads "McDonald is selling more fish sandwiches than hamburgers."
As Microsoft gears up for a 2013 update to the Xbox platform, we are surprised to see that the original XBOX product is outselling the XBOX 360!
This is based on our channel checks which indicate that when trying to purchase an "classic" Xbox, all retailers indicated they were out of stock!
Ok, now I am being silly.
This is based on our channel checks which indicate that when trying to purchase an "classic" Xbox, all retailers indicated they were out of stock which clearly shows a much stronger demand for the 11 yr old original Microsoft gaming platform.

oh and iPhone4 is sold out!!!! , does that mean its too complicated to manufacture for Apple deliberately keeping inventory low BS, of course not. , oh duh, where are the trolls now, evaporated as usual. that along with Cramer saying that Apple is a buy , just watch the stock test 705 again, just in time for all the fund managers to start their cyscliovcal "Dump and Diss" then "pump and dump" a few weeks later, so they can make their quotas.

xuseplla, I found it quite funny that I wasn't the one to delete that comment. Just saying.
Also, one "L".
If that the case then fu#k those salesmen. I also notice that every time I go to wireless stores to ask for the iPhone, the salesmen there always try to sell me something different, mostly Samsung phones. I guess because of better commission they get from Samsung.
right there with ya regarding the 4S... I personnally do not care for the 4" form factor. I like the smaller form factor for jogging etc.
I am curious to see how durable the that case is. My 4S is same as new... its a rock.
4S+ LTE go with a tad thinner glass ala i5 to lose some weight.
IMO they are leaving money on the table without a 4.5/5" inch phone(not that I want one but others do).

It was one of the original reasons Apple got into retail: they used to be entirely at the mercy of retail salespeople at the big box stores (CompUSA, Best Buy) who would push Windows PCs over Macs. It isn't always about commissions: sometimes it's just the individual preferences (or in some cases, prejudices) of the salespeople.
You don't really seem to know what you are talking about. People do not decide between iOS and Android according to "I text more or less". There are other factors that are a WAY bigger difference. The OLD iPhone costs as much as one of the most advanced and spread smartphone right now (S3). Anybody who does not like iPhones only because of brand, or other extremely subjective factors, will not hesitate for one second to pick up an android, after comparing what those two phones actually can do.
Furthermore I find it hillarious how you basically name 80% of the things that make a phone a smartphone (calls, text, social sites, navigation) and continue with "but apart from that". And of course web browser on a big android screen with full flash support is a much better experience. Mobile purchasing has nothing to do with which OS you have, unless you are stressing that many free Android apps are paid on the Apple store... so yeah, more money is going that way.
We need to stop pulling stuff out our behinds in order to convince ourselves that certain things we don't like to hear, don't exist. If you want to argue, focus on the things we are actually winning at and stop make us look like some japanese mad guy found on a remote island who still thinks he's fighting WW2.
One of the things that could slow the S3 menace down for example, is the sudden Death syndrome - that somehow seems to appear, right on time for christmas. That is a big issue. Do you really want to buy a phone, not knowing if and why it might just break down and never wake up again, any moment? Or worse, what happens if the guarantee has expired after a year (or is it two years?). This is a big problem for Android's posterchild right now, and they are trying to keep it under wraps by "charming" the customers by exchanging the broken phones immediately, no questions asked. But we will hear more from that!
