wild speculations

The S5 could be a rocky road for samsung. I hear many customers each day saying how they are sick of iphones, and they just went through the "fumbling fives". Consumers are just starting to get Ess-Foures, do they really want to aspire to the Ess-Five?

Iphone is going to have to name its device something other than "Iphone six" because it doesn't sound as good as the "phone phour" or the "phone phive" (alliteration, homies!). People are "sick" of that by now.
[Same with android, eventually they need to change their distro-names because zanex cupcakes don't sell. release "w" will be a hit though.]

It seems like any imagination that marketing departments may have had has been perescuted to oblivion by the cult status of the iphone (and apple) in the marketing world, so they are reacting so conservatively, and trying to solidify their products place in the marketplace with a certain regularity and custom which will be outgrown fast by our attention spans if they're not careful.

All the companies will release about the same devices, that look about the same, and work about the same.

Blackberry is going to show us foxconn produced phones for the asian market and stock investors will see if they're gonna make bank.
