my point in using it was Steve Jobs is like the new every 2 with new hardware Iphone releases every 2 years only .
with software tweaks the off year case in point beta 4.03 for AT&T phones includes the hotspot that the verizon phone is going to have.
iPhone -- 2007
iPhone 3G -- 2008
iPhone 3GS -- 2009
iPhone 4 -- 2010
See the pattern? That's every year, not every two years. I don't know where you got your information from, but it's incorrect.

Plus, even though the 3G and 3GS had the same shell, it was in fact different hardware because of the camera and what was under the hood.
Furthermore, the hardware WAS redesigned after ONE year after the release of the original iPhone when the iPhone 3G launched. Those two phones were pretty different hardware-wise, so even if he did mean it how you said it, it still wouldn't really make sense.

I'm not counting on there being an iPhone 5 released this summer, but if it does happen, I'll weigh my options then. I'm paying full retail for the iPhone 4 and will have 2 lines eligible for upgrades by July 6th. If an iPhone 5 is released and is a big enough of a leap in technology, I'd pick that up and sell my iPhone 4.

okay I did go to the wikpedia web site and read up on the iphone models I stand corrected and admit I goofed and was wrong in my new every 2 statement.
but in reading and having a graph showing each release of iphone it hit me.
the iphone 4 was a major design change in the phones looks so if we follow that graph on wikpedia a totally new looking iphone might only happen every 4 years.
as you say its merely speculation on my part.
gee do you think the screen size wars will escalate to an Ipadophone? lol

I highly doubt Apple/Verizon will release another newer iphone 6 months after. It just ain't gonna happen. Whats the point? They will probably wait a year till possibly releasing an LTE version or GSM-CDMA Qualcom chip phone so as to make only one model.
I still believe AT&T will be 6 month ahead of Verizon for the foreseeable future pertaining to iphone releases.

If so, then that's a significant upgrade as far as performance but most would still consider it a minor upgrade. Like I've said all along, this next upgrade will basically be an iPhone 4S.
