Better go get in line! This announcement should get the fanboys going. I'm up for a new phone but pigs will fly before I buy a crapple phone.
Being that Apple is the only one who is designing iOS phones unlike the open source Android it does not surprise me at all that we are already approaching the 5th gen phone. If Apple fails to keep pumping out updated devices they will not be able to compete with the thousands of Android devices.
you are right draco, i mean the new iphone will have a redone back and a new dual core processor with a 8mp camera. These things pretty much come standard on all cellphones now. Apple seems to be losing a step with the iphone now. They seem to be behind the curve with the hardware, and the software they basically just stole the best things from other phones (BB, win7, and android) and stuck it in iOS 5. They also messed up by not putting it on tmobile. If they made a true world phone, their sales would be off the charts.
