Apple bulls on the run?

I always inquire about smartphone sales whenever I'm out an about, and lately I've notice a shift away from the iphone.  Definitely isn't the top seller anymore, Samsung way out in front.  Now these consumer fads are hard to predict till after the shift has occured.  Apple definitely has a lot more competition today than in the past. 

Some other reports are suggesting the ipad mini is cannibalizing ipad sales, that's not good for sales or margins either.

They'll squeeze margins, but they may sell hell of alot more increasing revenues and earnings regardless.  We'll have to wait and see.  Cheers!

Makes sense if the goal is to get their products into the hands of everyone they can.  Although AAPL could see gross margin declines, as Sanjeev says, they could make up for this with increased sales. 

Because there is no question that tons of people would go with AAPL products over others if the price points were closer to those offered by GOOG and AMZN.

It will be very interesting to see what happens going forward.
