If what is about to be released has the power to be revolutionary, as it appears to be, this will cause an earthquake in a lot of markets and several big names will be really screwed. Expect those companies affected by the launch dismissing the product(s). The only problem is that, as they dismiss and laugh, they miss the train passing over them. When they wake up, they are screwed.

Just as an example of two well established and solid companies screwed by Apple's iPhone in a matter of 2 years: Blackberry and Nokia.

In one day, in 2007, just a couple of months after the iPhone announcement, Blackberry stocks dropped from $220 to $80. Today it is $10.
