ripple effect of iphone?

January 9, 2007

yeah, i’m writing about the iphone just like everybody else. i agree with most people that this is definitely a net positive for all of us in mobile…it can’t help but shine the spotlight more on mobile content & mobile data services.

i won’t discuss the iphone’s features b/c there are tons of people already doing that. i wonder, though, what impact this will have on mobile phone sales between now and june. i’d imagine some people are going to delay purchasing new phones and/or signing up for new contractual commitments until the iphone comes out in june…so look for some short-term softness in high-end mobile phone sales in the U.S.!
