rumors were correct.


Until Apple officially announces it, they are still just rumors.  Why the need to continue spreading drivel?  We will all know the truth this time tomorrow... just chill out people.

The Wall Street Journal goes a long way in my book to believe what they print.

 

This isn't the New York Times we're talking about.

Re: Screen bigger, but resolution worse

Anyone think the antenna issue is going to get fixed?  The bumper cover was a poor excuse, IMO. 

 

Hope they'll make a new one and not just a rehash of the current model. Smiley Sad 

 

Definitely needs a bigger screen!

Re: Screen bigger, but resolution worse

Even if they use the same design as they iPhone 4, they addressed the antenna issue in two ways.  The Verizon versions antenna was changed to not have the issue to the extent as the original version. I would expect this antenna design to be used going forward. (All phones have the issue in one form or another.)  Second was education on how to hold your iPhoneSmiley Tongue

Re: Screen bigger, but resolution worse

I thought the Verizon phones had slightly different antenna designs due to the CDMA radios, not because they were trying to fix the antenna problem, which according to Apple, never existed.

I would say yes and no.  I am no expert in antennas but If I had to guess, it addresses both issues!  iFixit will be able to tell us for sure once they tear it apart.

Does it really bother you that much if some folks choose to speculate, to the point that you have to tell them to "chill out"?  Yes, we know that they are rumors--no need for you to keep parrotting the same old "It's not official until/unless Apple announces it" drivel over and over.

Re: Screen bigger, but resolution worse

it actually does bother people i think. along with people who come here and vent about the problems they experience with at&t. why it's such a big problem for people to get things off their chest if they need to is beyond me. it seems like every time i come here there are the same 4 or 5 people that either respond with 'until apple/at&t announce it, it doesn't exist' or 'you should have read your contract/box/website'. telling people that after the fact is simply self aggrandizing. yes, we know it's in the fine print. yes, we know you guys are top notch consumers. you didn't have to make mistakes like these to learn. actually, you guys were born with the knowledge that companies are in business to try and screw people and so you've always protected yourself. one day, if we try really hard, we can be like you guys. for now, we'll just have to band together, a lovable bunch of losers and try to hobble through life without losing our shirt.

 

thanks for at least letting us hang out here.
