If someone likes Apple, they will buy the Iphone 5, If you are looking for the latest and the greatest smartphone, you will buy a Samsung.
As far as Tablets, I had to wait 2 weeks to get 2 Amazon Kindle HD's, the best by far in value for the dollar, the screen quality is way better than the Ipad Mini. Apple has a real problem on their hands this year, 20 tablets to choose from and 10 Smartphones better than the Iphone 5. Timber Cook has let shareholders down passing off old, obsolete products to compete with super products on the market for less money.
I gave you an honest report from Best Buys and Target, no Ipad Mini's were sold in 2 hours at BB and Target sells about 5 per day, right from the head of sales for the department. The big tablet seller at BB was a $79 kid's tablet. Any Analyst that tells you Apple products are selling like hot cakes, is a LIAR.
You take the first month of Iphone 5 sales and I bet RIMM sells more BB10 phones than Apple.
Last year Apple sales in the U.S. were 17% of their business, this year I bet U.S. sales will be 50% of their business, there is no growth outside the U.S.
Look at this last quarter, Apple has $117 Billion cash and $57 Billion in Debt, what is Timber Cook doing to this company?
Samsung has over 19% of the market in China, read about it. Samsung is selling phone to China Mobile, Apple sells zero. Apple lost the China market, an Iphone costs $1140 dollars, Apple is not selling in India, Samsung is #1 in Europe.. Apple can't even sell one phone in Mexico, they are banned. Other than wall street hype, Apple is on a big down hill, everyone can see that but the brainless shareholders.
Wait for the numbers, then sell.
