There has been a lot of rumor and speculation about Apple’s next iPhone, and the claims have come in varying degrees of credibility. Today, Brian White set the bar for the stupidest claim yet.
Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White (via MacRumors):
We also walked away with the view that Apple will release the iPhone 5S in at least two screen sizes this summer and possibly three. We continue to target July as the launch date. Essentially, we believe Apple is coming around to the fact that one size per iPhone release does not work for everyone and offering consumers an option has the potential to expand the Company’s market share.
Nope. If you believe that crap, I’ve got some beach front property in central Arizona to sell you. This “Analyst” clearly doesn’t understand Apple, the fragmentation that this would cause, or their future plans. It’s safe to say that Apple won’t do something like this in 2013, or probably ever.
And to all the sites that covered this with any degree of credibility: What on earth were you thinking?!
