This guy is saying Apple will release THREE new phones...
AliensWanted - my tech life: Steve Jobs will have more than 'One More Thing' to announce next month - there will be THREE new iPhone models released
Never heard of him and he may well be a crackpot... but this is what he is saying:
Steve Jobs will have more than 'One More Thing' to announce next month - there will be THREE new iPhone models released
I believe that Apple is going to launch an all-out assault on the market in September/October.
Three new iPhone models. Yes, I said three.
This is the primary reason that a new iPhone was not launched on schedule.....there's more than one. Makes perfect sense.
Here they are, in order.
iPhone 4S $49 on contract (with possibly $350 off contract as a pre-paid phone)
iPhone 5 $99 on contract (possibly $149)
iPhone 5HD $199 on contract
Here’s my take and why I believe this is the truth.

We've seen the plastic faced one. That's the 4S. Then the 5 model is stated to be the same casing, possibly being tapered but sharing the same footprint (save for depth/tapering) and then larger dimensioned models..
Google it. That's how I found everything I did....and I vetted the information through various sources to ensure it wasn't the same story being repeated.
It's all out there.
Does having three models upset people here or something? I think it's a GREAT idea, one that would make me consider an iPhone. Currently, I hate the smaller screen size - I use an Inspire with a 4.3" screen and I am spoiled by that screen size, so if Apple decided to offer larger displays, they're catering to the crowd that cannot and will not move to Apple due to that one fact alone.
You can't tell me that Steve Jobs isn't considering this. He's too smart..

And your reasoning behind the 4s and the 5 is somewhat reasonable and credible but it isn't definite. And you're idea about the "larger dimensioned models" is false because you have to look no further than the threads on this website to find that there credible sources stating that there will not be an iPhone with a larger screen. So, please before you read another false source and write an article about it, do some more research and make sure you're not spreading false information.

As I state all along in the blog, it is my opinion and nothing more. I simply see things very clearly and I see that there will be three phones and if I am wrong it won't bother me.
I was a longtime Blackberry user, now an Android user and considering webOS and iOS....I am shopping ecosystems. I am all about the purity of the experience and so far, no one makes the perfect OS.
And thank you to those who took the time to read the blog, hopefully you found it something worth reading. I try to write from a device agnostic point of view.

I highly doubt there will be 3 models. That is way too confusing for the consumer. Nobody would know which one they want.
I'm pretty sure they are going to do the iPhone 4 but with a cheaper body (it's too expensive build-wise right now to be a budget model) at $99.
Then the iPhone 5 will be the standard model with the high end construction and new features.
The end. Unless they are going to explore completely different form factors, like a significantly smaller phone or a physical keyboard phone, I don't think they would want to introduce another phone at the risk of confusing the consumer.

I still stand by what I wrote, not that I am some genius, but the signs point to it. Excellent point about confusing the customer, that has legs to me, which means there's probably going to be at least two. The new iCloud phone could be that third phone.....but I still believe there will be a larger form factor, there are simply too many large-screened phones for Apple NOT to compete in that size. I will not use a small screen (3.5") after having used a 4.3"...simply too small. Feels like a BlackBerry screen.
