    wooo, that unibody mockup looks lovely. strong while thing. love those hard edges.

    hopefully Apple will follow their flat back design, iphone 2G, and 4's design are much better than 3G/s'.

    having a 4 myself, i won't be upgrading unless the casing design is much improved. improved to the point where a case is not needed. (think iphone 2G's design, i've dropped that a few times without problem)

    We're locked in on contracts for the 3GS and 4 so we may have to pass ... unfortunately :sigh:

    More storage? Christ, I'm happy with the 16GB on my iPhone 4, I don't need 128GB!

    Also Bit-Tech, you're not paying attention. You say it will have an upgraded processor in the iPhone 5 (namely the A5 chip used in the iPad 2), and then in the next sentence you go on to say that the wish list of things that it won't be getting includes a dual-core CPU.

    Yet the A5 is dual-core. Duh.

    The A5 in the iPad 2 is dual core (and very snappy it is too thank you very much). But why says apple can't release a fast single core version and still keep the A5 name?

    And... this article doesn't mention A5, it just says "faster".

    (Oh but I'm with you, I think the "iPhone 4 GS Ultra Wicked Uber Extreme HD S" (If they take their naming cues from BT) will get a dual core chip)

    MY 1932 western electric allows me to talk to people just as well as my 3G
    PLUS
    the handset makes a great weapon in case I have to crush someones skull in.
    I can't do that with my 3G. Madey I'll wait for the 10G.
    Who says I have issues. lol

    iphone 4 is horrible to hold so I will wait to see if they have improved the ergonomics at all (basically back to the 3G shape would be great)

    Agreed, it's the one thing I dislike about mine, and the fact I'm s**t scared of dropping it. 128GB of storage would be nice, I have far too much music/apps.

    Que the standard apple loving lemmings defending this blatant grab for more money.

    In all honesty i think apple have got the UI perfected, their devices are fast and do what they indended them to do. I just feel that they could have released this as part of a new version rather than causing a mass purchase of the new model purely because it has a higher number attached to it. Apple products are a trendy thing to have. They are "the in thing" as my parents would say. I hope one day people buy things because they need them or they like how they work rather than "<insert standard peer pressure figure here> wants one"

    I'm fairly happy with my I4 however my next purchase will be android based. The I5 does look interesting though.

    Youve gotta be pretty desperate for an iPhone if your're gonna get one now. even if it is just a minor spec bump it would still suck geting an iPhone now for it only to be the previous generation in a couple months time.

    Im starting to doubt if ill get a iPhone 5 now, my 3Gs still works fine and bar the better screen the iPhone 4 had no real benefit to me, iOS isnt really that resource intensive as it is (unless you have a 3G). I guess ill just wait another year.

    What apple needs is an app that tells you a phone with a decent camera:)

    ??

    Of all the things to pick on about the iPhone 4, why the camera? Takes better pictures than many brand new phones.

    More storage, a more durable design, better battery and a DEDICATED CAMERA BUTTON are what i'm wishing for. Dual core A5 isn't too important I'd say. I don't get any lag with the A4.. Better graphics chip from the iPad 2 would be nice for 1080p out I suppose.
