Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster says the iPhone 5 has nothing to worry about with regard to what appears to be a serious new challenge from the Samsung Galaxy S4.
How does he know this? As it turns out, the resident Wall Street Apple watcher did an analysis of Twitter reactionS to the iPhone 5 versus the Samsung Galaxy S4.
The iPhone had 5X as many tweets as the S4 had on each phone's launch day. Therefore, Munster believes, "that the standard iPhone will essentially maintain its market share in the high-end of the market through CY13 (low 40% worldwide)."
Munster, however, believes this was the case because "the iPhone 5 was well telegraphed, thus some consumers may have been let down that there were no surprises."
