But reception had 2 bar difference between the two demo's(old batch and new). guess its better.
    Glad to hear it. I had one of the first iPhone 4's on release day, and the signal was dreadful (with or without my hands on the phone!) I bought an HTC Desire after a week of use as the poor signal made it useless.

    I've recently got a new iPod Touch 4G and using it has made me want another iPhone... so I was going to get a new iPhone 4 in the next couple of days and was hoping the problems had been sorted. I can't really find much info about whether they updated the hardware at the end of September like it was rumored that they would.

    I don't think that current iPhone 4 will be able to compete with that monster of a Android phone coming to at&t. That Motorola Atrix 4g has a 2ghz Dual core processor with 1gb of ram. Not to mention Verizon will be getting something similar to the Atrix 4g in the Droid Bionic.
    *off topic* Did you see the video of that thing in the dock?! It can dock to your Monitor/Mouse/KB and give you a desktop experience... it can dock to your home theater with HDMI and a remote... it can dock to a laptop shell.

    A phone that is powerful enough to do this and versatile enough to be a hybrid PC / Phone might prompt me to get one as least as a second line... still can't live without a jailbreak

    Orig IP compared to the IP 3G was minor updates!? It activated the 3G network on it! I think that was pretty major have you used edge? Lol

    *Off topic* That sounds years ahead of the iPhone. I haven't had a chance to use Android yet though, so I don't know if I'd take it over iOS.But wow. That could literally replace my desktop unit and have better specs.

    *Back on topic* I wonder if it's true like that one guy said that this is just a fix for the antenna.

    Surely they wouldn't be producing a new chassis for an antenna fix in January, when a new model is likely to come out in June / July?

    I thought the antenna issues were supposed to be fixed back in September?

    Default maybe YOU should READ the whole article

    If it is the new verizon phone it would need a sim slot for LTE so it can support the new 4G Verizon network. CDMA doesn't use a sim but LTE (their 4G network) does. So any future Verizon 4G phones WILL use a sim most likely. So yes this could very well be the new verizon iPhone. Maybe you should read the article before you say its wrong because they mention how it could be an LTE verizon phone which would need a sim card slot.

    It's not really that exciting. Basically all the guy says is that the bands are repositioned and it's structured a little differently.

    I think people are confused and I want to clear something up. There are currently 4 generations of iPhones.

    1st gen - Apple iPhone (2G network)
    2nd gen - Apple iPhone 3G (3G referring to network, not generation)
    3rd gen - Apple iPhone 3GS (upgraded processor ram etc)

    All the above iPhones have the same form factor, these did not change until the:

    4th gen - Apple iPhone 4

    So my question is, why does everyone assume that Apple will change the form factor of the 5th gen iPhone? They didn't do it for the first 3 releases, so it's unlikely that they will again until perhaps the 6th or even 7th gen.

    iPhone 7 anyone?

    My guess is at least the 5th generation will keep the same form, they'll just upgrade the internals. Cross your fingers and perhaps in another 12 months they'll start thinking about a new look.

    I have a feeling that it's more likely the iPhone 4 Verizon edition

    Would apple even have a comparison photos like this? They don't seem useful for them
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    ya that was pretty mind blowing, If i bought that phone I don't think I would need a netbook anymore.

    Back to the topic.

    I still believe it's a rework for the Verizon iPhone.
