So you're telling me that the expected minimal upgrades have made the iPhone 5 "boring", whatever that means, but that they're flying off the shelves.
My response would be, "Yeah, so?"
Nobody thought the iPhone 4S was a great improvement or a big surprise over the iPhone 4. Still, when it was released there were long lines, sellouts and long waiting periods. And the iPhone 5, which offered incremental improvements over the 4S, still lacks features from its rivals, and offered no great surprises has long lines when it was released, sellouts and long waiting periods.
Lack of real innovation seems to have no real impact on the iPhone's merchantability. No surprise there -- Apple has, with the exception of AppleTV, been able to sell the bejeezuz out of just about any iDevice it produces. Being "boring" doesn't seem to have anything to do with it.
