  • "iPhone 5" Is the 6th Top Google Search of 2011

    The iPhone 5 was the device that never came to be...yet.

    The iPhone 5 was one of the top anticipated items of 2011. Google search histories (thanks to the new Google Zeitgeist feature) show that the term, "iPhone 5" was the 6th top Google search of 2011 which really illuminates people's lust for such an item. Apple was expected to unveil the iPhone 5 at this year's event having that they waited so long to unveil the device instead of their usual time in June. The iPhone 4S was announced this year in October which is a significant jump. It's no doubt that many were unhappy with the announcement as we heard and continue to hear cries about the size of the screen, not having 4G cellular service, and also looking the same as the previous iPhone.

    Unfortunately, we do not know exactly when the iPhone 5 will be released or if it will. There is absolutely no proof supporting that an, "iPhone 5" will be released, but that is our speculation of the ideal. There will certainly be a next iPhone but there just isn't any evidence pointing to the fact that it will be an, "iPhone 5." It's just an educated guess.

    While the demand for an iPhone 5 with completely new chassis, features, and radio technologies is still high in the air, Apple is being pressured into making such a device. While demand is high for a device with a four inch screen, 4G cellular technologies, and upgraded specs, the iPhone 4S continues to sell out at places all around the world and it is the bestselling iPhone yet according to the sales numbers of the first weekend launch.

    With Google searches for the iPhone 5 having risen dramatically from the year 2010 to this year (1,658% increase to be exact, as Mac Rumors reports) there is no doubt that the iPhone 5 was dubbed one of the most anticipated things to have in 2011. Many Web Sites, graphic designers, and anticipating Apple fans created Photoshop® artist renditions of what the iPhone 5 may look like and the picture of this article is one of the nicest. Unfortunately, until the iPhone 5 is released, we can enjoy our iPhone 4's and iPhone 4S's.

    How many times did you Google search the iPhone 5 this year? Share in the comments below.

      And calling people *mod edit* is HIGHLY educated right?

      Anyway......I'm sure the reason the iPhone 5 was so highly searched is because people were expecting an iPhone 5.......not a 4 1/2.

      I laughed when I read what you posted but looking through all of your nine posts it seems all you do on here is run people down. Not to be rude, but I think you have some growing up to do yourself.

      Can they give it a rest already? iPhone 5? There will not be an iPhone 5! Why? Because the next iPhone will be the sixth generation, and it'd be stupid to call it 5. Now, enter the idiots complaining about the iPhone's name scheme! Well, let me explain.

      iPhone - The first one, later called iPhone 2G
      iPhone 3G - Because it had 3G capabilities and the G had nothing to do with "Generation".
      iPhone 3GS - Because it was an improved iPhone 3G and again, it had nothing to do with a timeline or anything.
      iPhone 4 - Because it was the fourth generation, although its model number was 3,1.
      iPhone 4S - Because it's a slightly (very slightly) improved iPhone 4.

      So, why in the world would Apple call the next iPhone, iPhone 5? It wouldn't be the fifth generation and there's no 5G mobile broadband service, so drop the iPhone 5 nonsense already!

      But, Apple has proven with the iPhone naming scheme, which you provided, that they do not care what "generation" the phone is in. The next iPhone will be called the iPhone 5, making the jump to iPhone 6th, or 6th generation isn't logically sound by Apple standards and would be a huge marketing faux paus.

      But, I do agree the iPhone 5 nonsense got out of hand before and immediately after the 4S launch. No reason to argue over it. Until Apple makes an announcement, which will not be for a long time, there isn't much sense speculating about supposed devices title.

      Apple needs to come up with "the next big thing", not a 3G phone that runs at 4G speed. The next iPhone should set the new standard (IMHO.)

      You can glean the name of the sixth generation iPhone from the history of the iPhone. If it has a 4G radio, it will be called 'iPhone 4G'. Since Apple is slow, but not completely reluctant, to embrace new (cellular) standards, the sixth generation iPhone is very likely to have a 4G radio. Thus the next iPhone will be called 'iPhone 4G'.

      What they should and what they do are clearly 2 different things and what it will and always comes down to is highest revenue for lowest output device! Just look at the iphone 4s, top sellling iphone of all time. Why? Becuase it's 3megapixels better then iphone 4 at half the price? Because it has a program for lonely losers that have no one to talk to can now chat with their phone, lol? No, because it's the "New Thing from Apple" device so everyone has to buy it. They can come out with an iphone 5 or whatever u want to call it, still have no 4g service, still have the same crap size screen, still have some features as previous, but maybe slightly faster and better camera and guess what, it will also be the next best selling iphone ever. Why? Back to point 1, its the "New Thing from Apple" and everyone with no brain has to have the new thing from apple. I'm very satisfied with my iphone 4 and if the new one does not have a bigger screen, 4g service, and more options overall, probably switch to a new brand phone. Apple seems to be more hype now then ingunity. How about a phone that can be jailbroken forever without a patch for every update? Yeah that will be the day. Sure soon there will be no jailbreak possibilites from apple with now jailbreakers turning to the dark side and getting onto Apple's payroll. Then i'll for sure never buy an Apple device again.

      You guys are over thinking this "generation" nonsense. Who cares what it's called... I know one thing for sure is that it will be called an iPhone.

The experience is polished. Why are there soooo many androidians on here doing nothing but bashing apple?? Dont ppl talk about apple enough on xda?? I guess not. Get ur google phone and move on!
