    These folks that went to android phones will be saying the same thing about their new phones after awhile. To me the vivid pics of each icon is soo much better than the android, amongst other things. Guess we'll all find out in a month.

    It's a crazy theory, but I can hope. Otherwise I am stuck using my 3GS longer than expected.
    I have been thinking the same thing lately. Especially with more and more conflicting info that we hear each day. Feels like they are trying to cause mass confusion so that another Gizmodo/lost iPhone/no 3GSs are sold (ip4) doesn't happen. The majority of the public doesn't even care, or know, about a yearly iPhone refresh. But with what happened last year I think there are many who now do. Hence the misinformation.

    Considering sales figures, I think it's pretty safe to say that the vast majority of iPhone users are on 4 right now, which means that nearly nobody's going to be out of contract should the iPhone 5 hit this Summer. Sales of the 5 would initially pale in comparison to last year's model, so I figured they'd push the launch back as far as possible to rope more people into the early upgrade window.

    Or they want the Verizon and AT&T versions to launch simultaneously, and the Verizon phone isn't done yet due to whatever reasons (i.e., LTE, CDMA radios, etc).

    Or building supplies are limited due to Japan's recent catastrophes.

    Also consider that it'd be silly to launch a different-colored version of last year's model 2 months before announcing the new model. They're staving off the iHungry crowds with the white phone.

    These are not your 2 cents. There is no statement here, only a question.

    With that said I do agree with you. I believe that if the iPhone 5 is delayed so will iOS 5. Every new iOS coincided with the new iPhone. Don't see Apple releasing iOS 5 (in June/July, like before) well before the iPhone 5 (if delayed as rumors insist).

    All very plausible points. Good post!

    No June or July, but what about September? Im with everyone else, still stuck on 3GS and really hope when they do release a 5 it isn't just a "super magical" iphone 4S or something.

    So I shpopped around for a good Andre phone with some good plan as I use 3- 4 minutes a month on att. So my bill is 139 a month with att.
    finally I have got Tmobile 4g with UN talk,test, web for 79.
    Mind you, 4G speed is blew me away.
    And Tmobile gave me a credit of 175 towards my bill because I will be paying 135 to att, for early termination
    And I purchased LG G2X phone. Wow I loved the phone.

    This phone is rock solid twin.core with 4G.
    You can check it out, and AI also saved some $45 q month and did not suffer a penalty.
    What you guys think. Did I took the right decision.
    No you did not. Take it back. You do not deserve a phone.

    Apple for sure will release a dual core phone this year, they'd be crazy not to.
    I come bearing a gift. I'll give you a hint. It's in my diaper and it's not a toaster.

    I'm not sure what you guys are doing with your iPhones to make them boring... Maybe if you were unjailbroken??? I love my iPhone and I can't think of one time i have been bored with it. Lol just ask my fiancé


    On another note I am not going to believe any rumors because I like being surprised. I hope apple surprises all of us.

    I dont believe anything unless it comes from steve jobs. If they postpone the launch till september i will be very surprised. But i guess we will all wait and see

    He found it in the bootloader.

    sure with apps yes it's not bored. but the design and not much of an improvement from one to another generation. yes i can see for those who don't have iphone and planning to get ip5 but i can't see those who had ip4 and eagerly wanting ip5 so bad. yes an A5 but still your data connection is sux. as i mention earlier, it's like you have a super faster pc but with a dail-up moderm. i can't speak for 4G since mind is 3G att and it sux compare to the price i pay for data.

    I've purchased every iPhone so far, I'm happy with my mods on my iPhone 4. No interest in the white one, I purchased the white kit months back. I'd really like to have a clear front plate if that is possible. I purchased a clear back plate last week, its pretty cool. I just believe the white iPhone 4 was this years release of the iPhone, 2012 we'll see the 5.

    Honestly, the employees at AT&T and most of the Apple employees know nothing what so ever or act as if they don't know when a new device is coming out, iv been told numerous times by AT&T and Apple that a device wasn't coming out when in fact it was. Sooo until theres true and confirmed evidence that the iPhone 5 isn't coming out this summer its not necessarily true.
