    Looking for your opinions on when you think Apple will release the iPhone 5. Will they go with a traditional summer release or follow suit with the iPhone 4S and go with a fall release?

    Right now we can only give a wild guess at best. Considering that the 4S just came out for all 3 carriers at the same time, it only makes sense to think that at least a year needs to pass until the next iPhone is released. So my best guess is next October or November.
    But I could be 100% wrong.

    i think they already did just because they didn't name it ip5 does not mean it's not the 5.

    Next fall. Perfect time for the holidays. I think that was the main reason for shifting the release dates to fall. Get the initial rush out of the way in early fall, and then sales will be sustained through late fall/early winter for Christmas, Chanukah, etc.

    And yeah, I agree that we're really talking about iPhone 6 here.

    There isn't much more they can do with the iPods, so something to bring up the holiday cheer needed to take their place. Summer at WWDC just never made a whole lot of sense to me to be announcing/releasing a new product. That's a time when developers are supposed to be focused on making apps and stuff, not learning about all the changes they'll have to make for a new phone. Although I suppose that can go hand-in-hand anyway.

    I agree with March 2012. This is a fan community. I think the real world will have even more issue with 3.5".

    I think the real world couldn't care less about the screen size.

    Do you think the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 5? Technically, the 4S is the 5th generation iPhone. iPhone 6? Next fall? :)

    All we can do is guess based on past names. If we do that, then it would have to be iPhone 6.

    Really?

    This is the 4S. Plain and simple. Same thing when the 3G went to the 3GS.

    Next phone is 5.

    Who knows what they will call next year's iPhone? It should be LTE/WiMax compatible. Who knows? Maybe next year will be the iPhone 4G. :p (It's funny because I often hear people call the iPhone 4 the iPhone 4G).

    iPhone was the 1st iPhone.
    iPhone 3G was the 2nd iPhone.
    iPhone 3GS was the 3rd iPhone.
    iPhone 4 was the 4th iPhone.
    iPhone 4S will be the 5th iPhone.
    The next iPhone will be the 6th iPhone. Why would they call it iPhone 5?

    I hate it when you're right.
    I'm confused because there was no iPhone2 but instead the iPhone3G.
