Really, Apple, a press conference? Well I guess since "everyone wants to copy" Amazon...



Seriously though, I'm interested in iOS5, sort of iPhone5, and plan to upgrade our two 3GS phones once I qualify for a reasonable upgrade price from AT&T.

I like how the image correlates to the stuff being discussed. The calendar showing the date, the clock showing 10am, the location and the phone icon. Fun.

I'm interested in the iPod Touch. My second-gen is getting long in the tooth. I want to see if the fifth-gen's upgrades are worth it.

There are a LOT of rumors about an Iphone 4S, to replace the cheap 3GS in stores.

The new cases that Engadget has up seem to indicate a thinner phone than the iPhone 4 and a larger product as well. 4 inches perhaps on the screen. If that is the case, this phone will become a lot more palatable.

I think it's going to be iPhone 5 for sure, and iPhone 4S. It's one new phone and one tweaked old phone.

I mean come on Apple, there is no way you spent an entire year just tweaking the iPhone 4's design. That's just boring and lame. They are such a powerhouse in the design department there's no way they sat idly by

Phones are going to end up like cars. Marginal yearly improvements.

What I find odd is that iOS5 GM has yet to be released but then again, Oct. 4 could merely be the full announcement, not shipping.

Okay my predictions:

2 Phones, iPhone 4 and iPhone 5. They won't talk about iPhone 4 at all. Basically it'll be upgraded with a few things but pushed towards newer users.

iPhone 5 will be their main focus along with iOS 5. Lots of hoopla about really cool new things and we'll see.

There is absolutely NO WAY that Apple has merely updated the iPhone's ram and CPU after a year plus. They simply don't work that way.

I think what's happening is that iPhone 5 is going to be a true world phone and they have been keeping this phone very very secretive

Also I've figured out why they have the rectangular home button now it makes so much more sense.

I think it's still clickable but it's now capacitive.

Usage 1: Screen unlock, you no longer need to touch your screen to unlock it.

Usage 2: Changing tabs or months of other things

Usage 3: Changing icons

if they can pull of a quad core at 1-1.5ghz. then it will be a very amazing cellphone

Yeah but I'm thinking they have a capacitive sensor on it now. Otherwise there is absolutely no point in making it rectangular. Nothing in Apple is going to lose form over function if there is no function

Why?? What the hell is a quad core going to do that a single core on a frigging CELLPHONE isn't already doing?

I've used Nexus S and the HTC Sensation. I see no difference in performance. In fact HTC actually runs a bit slower.

You are correct.

Apple has NEVER resorted to secrecy to drum up hoopla, speculation and all kinds of discussions about it's products in order to create a lust for it and then release something with marginal improvements at best and claim it was "magical" and "revolutionary".

Just what I was thinking.

Here's the deal: Better performance, G4 and SPRINT. Oh...and the rest of that 'magical' ooh and ahh **** on top.

Yeah but competition was seriously stepped up. Are you seriously thinking that Apple, the company with a 400 dollar stock is going to go up and say "In a year, we've made the iPhone 4S, with just more ram and bigger screen"

They wouldn't shoot themselves in the foot.
