If they announce it too soon, iPhone 4 sales will drop faster than they want. They do this every year, it's just that we're used to getting the phone in the summer rather than the fall. They typically announce it two or three weeks before it goes on sale.

Apple is known for blowing people away with their brilliant products. You shouldn't be concerned about whether or not it will be good or not.

All good questions. Suspense works best for Apple. We just have to wait and see what Apple has planned for its 5th gen device.

I am both LOL
I love the surprise and anticipation. Love to speculate and think about what is coming next. (Holographic display & keyboard PLEASE)
If you knew me, you would know: I like to plan ahead ALWAYS (already bought all my sons and some of hubbies christmas presents). I really just want the date! I could plan for once maybe to camp out. I want so bad to go and hang with fellow geeks in front of Apple store for hours or even days

Seems pretty typical of Apple on keeping things on the DL with their new products. You either love Apple or love to hate them. I like the build up and hype and would love to see a who was right and wrong thread about all the rumors that Chris mentioned on a podcast a few months ago.

I think they are taking the piss. Especially as it wasn't a June launch. Hell, it's not even going to be a September launch. The iPhone 5 better be good and blow me away.
Based on the rumors....doesn't look like it will blow you away. Unless you are running a 3G. :)

I told people in April to just wait until July for the iPhone 5. They're not very happy. I find it hard to believe the iPhone 5 isn't even announced yet!

We knew in the spring that it would be a fall release this year. We also know Apple typically waits until 2-3 weeks to announce the new phone. So I don't know why anyone who spends time on iPhone forums is surprised that it still hasn't been announced.

Yeah i know, I just have no patience. LOL fingers crossed they will come out with news soon !.

Europa, do you think we will be waiting till next year before the iPhone5 comes out or do you think it will be out this year ?
