Analyst forecasts concerning iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S



Gene Munster, a famous analyst, has published a research note concerning his thoughts about the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S.

According to Munster, the iPhone 5C will not boast  Siri and it will replace iPhone 4S and will be selling for $300 off contract.

In terms of the phone itself, we expect the cheaper phone to have a plastic casing, 4" display, and lower end internal specs (processor, camera, memory, etc.) than the 5S/5 line up. Additionally, we believe that Apple may exclude some software features, such as Siri, which we note was not an option on the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4 upon launch.

According to the Associated Press, the court denied Apple's request to suspend the ruling in the E-Book case.

A judge on Friday refused a request by Apple to temporarily suspend her ruling that it violated antitrust laws by conspiring with publishers to raise electronic book prices in 2010.
Judge Denise Cote, ruling from the bench in Manhattan federal court, declined to withdraw the effect of last month's ruling while Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple Inc. appeals.

Last month, Apple was found guilty for conspiring with publishers to fix prices in the iBooks store instead of using the typical agency model.
