Is it going to be this week?
yes for sure in terms of the announcement but 4s or 5 I don't know :/
I want the os not the phone, we've been using mobile me which has been rubbish and slow. That and cordless synching although this is now millions quicker with my mac book pro!
I really hope it's not the '4s' because I would quite like a re-design.. even though I *do* love the iPhone 4... My contract is up next month so will have to see how the pennies are then
Ive had the software for ages so nothing new there for me BUT it is brilliant and I kinda forgot that yeah, it'll be a huge deal when it comes out for everyones phone.
I imagine they'll announce it tomorrow.
I really hope for a redesign too Josh but Im not sure it's looking promising
Was in Florida Mall Apple store couple of days ago and staff in there either knew nothing or were saying nothing.
being week 2 without my iphone after it took a trip down the loo and my contract now finished I just want them to announce anything so I can make my decision on what to get next quickly!
That's typical Malcolm. I think Apple threatens them with hot bamboo shoots under the fingernails if they so much as breath a word.
Of course, the real truth is that they probably haven't got a clue yet either.
Remarkable visual on that one! Would loved to have seen your face!
Tom macwave:... is there a market for iPhone life preservers? )
I had a good friend who worked at an Apple store in the US and he swore to me that they usually didn't know anything other than they may get told to expect a delivery and to leave it sealed until date x/y/z.
They sometimes hear rumours and occasionally get a hint like "no one can have oct 22/23rd off and we'll need a shop floor area for a new display" etc....
Same things I've heard. Apple is known for it's secrecy. And it's vengeance should anyone open their mouth.
But it makes for great drama.
Tom macwave:... ohhh... and one more thing...)
every rumour seems to be saying iphone 4s - 8mpx camera, A5 cpu, 1GB ram and dual worldwide cdma+gsm.... probably a modified antenna as well.
That's OK but not really the iphone5 I was kinda hoping for ;-) although quite what more I need on a phone is debateable
Ain't that the truth.
I look at my iPhone 4 and ask myself "how can they make it better". Sadly, I don't get much of an answer. Voice recognition would be the only thing that I'd really like and that's rumored to be part of IOS 5. No new iron required.
Tom macwave:... good morning iPhone. Fix my coffee, wouldja? Yeah. Right.)
IOS5 is brilliant thats for sure. It's a great upgrade for those who havent yet tried it, imessage/text interface is in itself pretty great. Awesome to see when someone has read your message etc . Lots of goodness in ios5 and SURELY that must be out today for everyone? or if not, in the next couple of weeks.
More for a phone hmmm... maybe a bit lighter but then too light and you start forgetting it. Perhaps edge to edge display but not TOO large or it taxes your thumb stretch-ability. Speed is always nice.. battery life... camera well there's a limit with those tiny lenses so more mpx doesnt bother me.
I don't have a clue what any of that means! I will still be able to play Angry Birds right?
What's the difference in a name? 4gs, 5g?
Well it's more that the 4s suggests relatively little is new whereas a 5 would've been a larger upgrade. (and indeed so far, there's not much in there to make an upgrade worth doing)
4G referring to speed of data down load, currently we are at 3G.
S referring to speed of the phone itself...
dont think it actually is a 4GS though, it's a 4s AFAIK
