Apple set to announce the release of the Iphone 5 on Oct 5

Found this on Foxnews this morning.  Interesting read.  Better late than never I guess.  I hope AT&T has their act together to handle this release unlike the Iphone 4 where everyone had some sort of horror story

Latest rumor. 1 iPhone the 4s. This is based on a picture of the otterbox commuter series packaging.

Re: Apple set to announce the release of the Iphone 5 on Oct 5

I'll be getting anxious here. These big-ticket phone releases are always the best. But the Apple board here is always flooded with complaints about pre-orders, shipping, messed up orders, the system crashing, and all of that other good stuff in between.

How do you guys and gals feel about the name of the new iPhone? Which do you like better - the "iPhone 5", or "iPhone 4S"?

I personally prefer the name "iPhone 5" as opposed to the "4S", but it's totally Apple's decision on what they want to name their new gem. Smiley Wink

I guess it depends what the next phone looks like. If it looks basically the same as the 4, with just a better camera and processor, I think it ought to be the 4S, like the 3GS was to the 3G. If it's a new external design, they should probably go with the 5.

Re: Apple set to announce the release of the Iphone 5 on Oct 5

I say keep it simple in the numbering scheme.  This will be the 5th iteration of the iPhone, so it should be the iPhone 5.  People get confused when referring to the 2nd iPhone as the iPhone 3G.  However, the iPhone 4 being the fourth "generation" led people to refer to it as the iPhone 4G for a long time.  Oh well, it may be confusing either way.

I don't feel anything at all about the name. From what I hear themenw iPhone will be called the 4S, the S meaning speed. This one will be nothing more than a spec bump. It will look the same as the iPhone 4 does now. Rumor has it that the the iPhone 5 won't be out till 2012 and that one will be the real update, with a larger screen and iOS overhaul... Time will tell whether this is true or not.
