The iPhone 5 is close to shipping, driving Apple stock to an all-time high -- and I think it's an unsustainable high (although the P/E ratio of around 16 isn't as out of line as I thought it would be).
With far less fanfare, Windows Phone 8 is also imminent, having gained release-to-manufacturing status. I guess it takes about six weeks for OEMs to turn these things around. The launch date is now expected to be Oct 29, with shipments soon after.
I still hear good things about the phone, but I think the real movement will come from enterprise customers who may see tight integration with corporate apps, and some aggressive moves by OEMs such as Nokia making us offers we can't refuse.
Do you see a Win 8 phone in your future, perhaps tying it into Lync? Mail me at [email protected]
