Who will intro the iPhone 5?
OK so Steve Jobs has stepped down as CEO of Apple and Tim Cook is now CEO. So I wonder which one of them is going to intro the iPhone 5 on stage? It could be Steve Jobs to show everyone that he's not gone just around or it could be Tim Cook as a show that although he is now CEO Apple is still the same. So who do you think it will be?
I say Steve Jobs but really I'm still 50/50 on it. He's been taking a back seat at keynotes and since Tim Cook is the CEO who knows. I still feel like they will want to capitalize on the Steve Jobs phenominon to bolster sales and create buzz.

Scott Forestall (probably spelled wrong) the head of iOS.
But I would not be Shocked if Steve came out and did it. Nor if he did, by not doing the keynote it would really signal the change of the guard that he is no longer going to be there for every thing and only major decisions. At this point everything is already decided so showing it off isn't something that would require his presence.

I voted Steve, but he's a pretty class act, so I won't be surprised if he steps back and fully lets Tim take the reigns to show solidarity with the new CEO. Of course he could also take the stage first then do the official changing of the guard.

As much as I'd like to see Steve on the stage, I really don't think he's going to do it. He is not CEO, he's Chairman of the Board, and the Chairman of the Board does not give the Keynote presentations. At the very least, he might introduce Tim, but I do not think he will announce the iPhone 5. That's not his job anymore. People want to see Steve, yes, but they also want to know that Apple can flourish without him.

I say Apple goes out and hires Morgan Freeman and he introduces the iPhone 5! Who's with me?
Seriously, I say Tim Cook. As the CEO and future visionary and chief, it is his proper place. Furthermore, continuing to rely in Jobs' charisma may send the wrong message to investors. Apple needs show the world that Cook can handle the future for Apple.
