Did Steve Jobs Work Until The End On The iPhone 5?

An inside source says Steve Jobs was on the phone with Apple until his very last day, fueling speculation that he personally oversaw the iPhone 5.

Japanese businessman Masayoshi Son spoke in an interview about a meeting with Apple CEO Tim Cook several weeks ago.

“I visited Apple for the announcement of the iPhone 4S [at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California]. When I was having a meeting with Tim Cook, he said, ‘Oh Masa, sorry I have to quit our meeting.’ I said, ‘Where are you going?’ He said, ‘My boss is calling me.’ That was the day of the announcement of the iPhone 4S. He said that Steve is calling me because he wants to talk about their next product. And the next day, he died.”

Son goes on to praise Jobs’s “spirit,” and his powerful commitment to his work.

Son also emphasizes that Jobs was apparently working not on the iPhone 4S, but on whatever product is coming next. In addition, CNET reports that market analysts are claiming Jobs “was intimately involved” with the next generation iPhone, “from concept to final design.”

What do you think? Does the 4S live up to Jobs’ vision? Will the iPhone 5 be the true “next generation”?
