But how does a sim card slot imply a phone that will be compatible with both GSM and CDMA?

First Gen iPhone > iPhone 3G = Minor update
3G to 3GS = Major update
3GS to iPhone 4 = Major update
iPhone 4 to iPhone 5 = who knows. Most likely minor things.. RAM increase, 8MP camera, minor processor speed bump?

I seriously hope the next Gen iPhone is a bigger step up from the iphone 4, if its not i am going to be extremely dissapointed.

look at the different colors of the frames...the iPhone 5 frame is a little lighter in color than the previous gen. this is only because apple is using liquid metal on the new model..it will increase signal and rid of death grip. mere speculation, but highly probable.

Also, as far as crapping bricks, people said the same thing about AT&T years ago when they were about to lose Motorola RAZR exclusivity. I think AT&T is gonna be just fine.

Not enough changes for the iPhone 5G, maybe it's the 4GS model"We don't need bullets, We need Pie's"

Then when I replaced it with the 4, I noticed that everything worked better. It's noticeably faster, has more usable memory and the GPS with Google maps has a function that keeps your location in the center of the screen while moving the map in the background. Plus, the map changes direction as you make turns. So even though it looks like minor changes on paper, the functions work much better and the phone runs apps much faster. That may not sound like major changes to you, but since I use my phone for work, contacting customers and going to locations I am not familar with, this is a major upgrade for me.

On the other hand, First Gen to 3G was major and it got the ball rolling. It introduced 3G to the masses (even though it wasn't the first 3G phone), it had a total redesign, and had a larger battery

The misaligned Mute switch screams fake. There isn't a chance in hell Apple would replicate all aspects of the phone then move the placement of one button, thus rendering nearly all iPhone4 cases and form fitting accessories as incompatible with the iPhone5. Either the form factor is identical (e.g. 3G & 3GS) or it's a totally different shape.They can have my jailbreak when they pry it from my cold dead fingers.

This section should be called speculation, there's never any really news anymore, just you mods tweeting crap to keep the site hitting the top of google.
IMO iPhone 5 will look different otherwise it would be called a 4s or something, when have apple ever change to another gen without changing the looks? Never.Follow me: @Nips19

And those of you clamoring about the SIM slot apparently have never seen the Droid2 Global or the BB Tour/Storm/Bold. CDMA phones with SIM card slots.

WOW. True ignorance right there! So, £30 (or US equivalent) up for a decent case is acceptable so that you may hold a phone to not lose signal??? As if you buy something as desirable and good looking as an iPhone 4 then immediately proceed to cover it in an ugly case JUST so you can hold the bugger in a way you'd hold any other phone! GTF'outa here, man lol.
