THE IPHONE 5: THE LAST SMART PHONE UPDGRADE?

As the smartphone boom comes to an end and carriers make upgrades more expensive and onerous for their customers, the iPhone’s popularity in the U.S. is likely to plateau. Hesam Panahi, clinical assistant professor of Decision and Information Sciences at the Bauer College of Business, is available to discuss how this plateau can effect sales of other smartphones.
