re: iPhone 5S Likely Evolutionary, Not Revolutionary
The truth is that Apple is facing a lot of competition these days: Once it was Revolutionary. Now, there's a lot of different companies making products for people to chose. iPhone is just another product on the shelf and an expensive on at that.

Another factor, is what "revolutionary development" is left in the smartphone market unless there's a quantum breakthrough, holographic image sharing, and and a direct cerebral link - telepathic in nature.

I see people with three different types of phones from different companies. They'll be talking on one, looking at Facebook on another, and trying to take pictures of themselves or texting with the other.Maybe, Apple developers will figure out a way to combine all functions in one App - plus simultaneous cerebral texting capabilities. That would be Revolutionary.

Why change anything when you know people will be lining up ungodly numbers of hours before the device goes on sale just to have the first one? Just another example of Apple firing up their money machine to make sure they show profits before the end of the year.

How long will it last, that's the big question...

Evolutionary is too little from Apple, especially at the prices that they charge.

I think we've hit the law of diminishing returns now, where there simply isn't much disruptive things you can do with a phone. Next up, Google Glass!

Apple doesn't even have to change one thing except rev the name label on the iPhone to 5S and the fanboys will all queue for miles to trade their 5s in.

Apple should switch directly to make the Iphone 6 which is an Apple version of the Samsung Galaxy, and I am sure a lot of people will love it.
