    The iPhone 4S was an upgraded iPhone 4 which is why it wasn't called the iPhone 5. Similarly the Playstation 3 slim is just a new version of the PS3 it doesn't warrant the next Playstation to skip over the 4 and be called the five. This makes perfect sense to me although I really thought it was going to be "The New iPhone"!

    Doesn't make sense. Under your explanation this iPhone would be just an iPhone 4 because there was a 3G and a 3GS.

    Why are we still bickering? I'm excited and I do not care what it is called I'm so excited. Apple will call it whatever it wants and we will all be happy.

    I agree! I'm sure I'll love the iPhone 5, whatever they decide to call it.

    I used to care about the naming... Technically this iPhone will be the 6th one released, thus I never understood the "5" naming. I could care less now, as long as its mine!

    I could care less, but where would the fun be in that?

    I'm calling it the iPhone 5 4G LTE 6th generation just so there's no confusion. wink2.gif

    I can't help that Apple screwed up by naming the second iPhone the 3G! Ha, ha!
