My Apple iPhone 5 Prediction

I don’t often comment on tech issues, but I’m a real gadget buff and keep a close eye on tech news. The Apple event scheduled for 12th September is creating the usual vast storm of media interest, possibly even more than usual. Most people are certain a new iPhone 5 will be announced. Some people are predicting a new 7″ iPad Mini to compete with the Google Nexus 7. Some people are even predicting a revised iPod Touch and other iPod models. Here’s my prediction:

Apple will launch a range of iPhone / iPad devices with 4.5″ / 7″ / 10.5″ (approximately) screen sizes. All of them will be phone capable.

Why? There’s clearly a convergence point upon us where a phone and a tablet are becoming the same device from the perspective of consumers. Apple’s only serious competition are from Android devices which have demonstrated a hunger for a variety of screen sizes with devices like the Nexus 7.  By providing a clear variety of screen sizes Apple will dominate the entire sector for another 2-3 years ahead.

My two cents. What are your predictions?
