It shouldn't be subtle the internet has been going insane over it.

Wouldn't you wait for the 5 if it's almost here and you wanted it?

I'll probably upgrade to the 5 once there is a JB for it... My 2 year old iPhone 4 feels sluggish since upgrading to iOS 5.1.1 (I was on 4.3.1 until a few months ago.

I finally have my iPhone contracts timed so either my line or my wife's line is up for renewal at refresh time.

Its her line this time so I will be getting the 5 and she will get my 4s

If the leaked photos are the real photos (and for the first time, I hope they aren't), then I will need to do some serious thinking before upgrading to the 5.

I'm thinking of the Galaxy 3, but I've read online that the bluetooth doesn't work with my car, which is a major problem.

Frankly I'm sad they're calling it the 5. I thought they would do New iPhone like they did with the last iPad.

Does the name really matter????

I bought mine for the total package - IOS, hardware, ecosystem, etc.

As for the post comparing the leaked photos and hinting they wouldnt get one if it looked like that - what are you hoping for?? A wide pocket buster that you cant reach the other side with one finger??

The beauty of this design is the simplicity of use....

If I wanted a non-functional, plastic POS I would still have my old BB or flip phone.....

Just my 2 cents - flame away....

Sad?
I was sad when the Mets traded Tom Seaver and when my dog died.
Not sure if a product's brand name could move me emotionally...I guess I'm too stoic

And then what happens next year? The New iPhone S? Or New iPhone 2?

I dont like what they did with the "New iPad" name, everyone just calls it iPad 3 anyway.

Just keep going with the numbers, because how else are you gonna differentiate the models?

I think desktops/laptops are different, because they've always been many iterations of them with the same name.

And now there will always be many iterations of the iPad with the same name.

The numbering is not sustainable. If they stuck with that, we'd have the Mac 4,194,304k instead of just "the new iMac".

It'll lead to confusion at first, but somehow the original iPod, the iPod nano, and iPod touch line has managed to survive in the consumer electronics space without numbers after the name.

Hey now Google Chrome is up to version 21 (since 2008) and SPSS is up to version 20 (since 1968).

It's all in the labeling.

Actually SPSS just managed to catch back up with Chrome, it just got to v21.

Meh,....

A rose by any other name,......

I just can't quite see what they could do to the iPhone 5 to live up to expectation of the namesake.

I don't have an iPhone yet, although I do have a new iPad, iPod Touch and MBP. This may be the point at which I buy an iPhone but I think I might make it a 4S, 4 or maybe even 3GS if I am. Feeling cheap,....

And I just might give it to my loving Wife,........LOL,....... You hear that!!!

It's going to be called 4GS. No reason for the 6th generation phone to be called 5.
Edit: Or the new iphone.

"4G"

This. Even though the MBPr I'm typing on says internally MacBook 10, it's not referred to as such in marketing materials.

And my "sad" comment above is contextual. Obviously, I'm not as "sad" about this as I was when I lost family members, duh.

I wouldn't be surprised for the new name to be iPhone LTE

But looking back at the invite. It looks like it will be the iPhone 5

The folks in Cupportino must be falling out of their conference room chairs watching this and the hundreds of other forums and talking heads....

ONLY they know what it looks like, whats in it and what it will be called.

I would bet they have a team that feeds misinformation, "leaked" parts photos and reports just for occasions like this

That shadowy '5' might be there just for to do exactly this - create buzz.......

If they never showed a real picture and opened the order lines - they would still sell MILLIONS - sight unseen..... And I will be there placing my order with the rest of you

They are geniuses

And get sued by countries that don't have LTE? Like they did with the ipad?
