So if we get 16/32GB options in Black & White (if they get it out on time) with the same display size & resolution and the ONLY change is the camera then its not "effing" big now is it.
I am not bashing it, but I am also not a sheep, the phone costs big money and I do expect big improvements. That is my personal take on it.

I agree completely with you redraider133. I just want the best hardware period and I want to see Apple push themselves to release the best hardware but they cannot live on the same footprint 5+ years later. Its time to make that next big jump, I do agree with what many say it likely won't be this year (disappointing) but I do hope for a screen bump and memory bump if nothing else. Since I will be paying full retail I do want a BIG reason to buy this year instead of using what I have as a hold over phone to keep my unlimited data plan going.

Glad to be back in the fray though.

Given the rumor of a global iPhone so they only have to make one version for all networks they are likely waiting for LTE radios to be better suited for their designs. Sucks big time, but its their ball.

That is what I thought you were saying, but I wasn't sure. My apologies if I came across the wrong way. I like to try out different devices, OS's and see what I can get the most out of. Its shocking how a cult mentality can be formed around anything today.

It better be a hybrid! I have been spoiled with this blackberry/verizon "advantage", and I'm looking to move to an iPhone. As weird as it sounds, without LTE or at LEAST cdma/gsm this would be a step back. Also I love the current anti-bias in the thread, there is nothing wrong with having open debate about what the best available is, regardless of who makes it.

From a design and mfg standpoint wouldn't be easier and less expensive for Apple to make a wold phone capable of CDMA/GSM this way they can simply shift inventory around the world and only need to flash the carrier specific portions to meet demands. Not that it will be in high demand by any means (lol).
