New Apple iPhone on tap but may fail to dazzle

SAN FRANCISCO, June 3 (Reuters) – Apple Inc’s (AAPL.O: Quote, Profile, Research)
next-generation iPhone, which CEO Steve Jobs is widely expected
to unveil on Monday, will have to really set new standards in
multimedia content and function to wow Wall Street and
consumers.

Apple’s challenge may be to dream up game-changing
innovations, since the iPhone is already an unqualified
blockbuster that is the company’s main profit growth driver,
and its share price hovers near record highs. The bid is made
tougher with the early success of the iPad tablet computer,
which many say has already created a new market.
