Then came the iPod and iPhone, and, in less than a decade, they went from loser to industry leader.

In terms of profit yes.  In terms of market share (particularly in computers), not.

The point is that this was virtually impossible to predict back then.

And what turned Apple around?  A dramatic change in leadership.  That's what it takes: a big change in direction (which hasn't happened yet and almost never happens in Japanese public companies.)

Some are getting a little bigger, but no bigger than what would fit comfortably in a pocket.

One (recently coined) word: phablet.
