Apple The Wall Street Journal: "Apple has cut its orders for components for the iPhone 5 due to weaker-than-expected demand, people familiar with the situation said Monday. Apple's orders for iPhone 5 screens for the January-March quarter, for example, have dropped to roughly half of what the company had previously planned to order, two of the people said. The Cupertino company has also cut orders for components other than screens, according to one of the people." The WSJ is usually very well informed about Apple matters (and Japanese business new Nikkei reports something similar), so it's a safe assumption that they're not making this up. What, exactly, this means, we don't know; perhaps a new model already? Seems strange they would switch to a different screen this quickly, though. Android (more specifically: Samsung) keeps on growing, so it's only inevitable that Apple would feel a sting there at some point. We'll know for sure on the 23rd, when Apple's latest quarterly results come rolling in.

It's entertaining, if not a bit annoying. Interestingly enough, you were proven entirely wrong in the Windows Phone thread because you failed to read correctly, and then you vanished - without apologies or admissions of 'I was wrong' - exactly what you erroneously accused me of doing.

Don't think you're clever just because you attribute things to people they didn't say. It doesn't maie you clever - it makes you obnoxious.

I get lost in the long sub-threads that spawn off in the comments, and honestly, stopped checking because it was going nowhere. I'm not actively keeping tabs on every reply to every comment I make.

However, if I was wrong, I'll be happy to say I was. I don't mind being wrong.
