iPhone Notification Light Upon Us?
In this image, there's a small dotted sensor/indicator very close to the proximity sensor above the ear speaker, and it looks veeery similar to the light that indicates when the webcam is in use on iMacs and MacBooks.
Also, if this turns out to be what I think it is, you are permitted to slap me for every time I said this would never happen on an iPhone.

Also, this could be a tester unit designed to look like the 4 for incognito testing of the iPhone 5's new internals.

I want so many things for the next gen phone but I don't care that much about any of them. I would only be upset if they don't fix the antenna, and/or they don't fix the camera sensor 'green dot' issue.

Coming from a blackberry, I initially missed the blinking LED light when I switched to iPhone.
After a few weeks, I realized how relaxing it was not checking for new messages constantly, not mistakenly seeing it flash out of the corner of my eye. At night, not leaving it on the night table so I could roll over and see it flashing in the dark.
Eventually, I was quite happy to have left that hypnotizing, obsessive behavior inducing light in the past.
Now it might be part of my life again?

I think if there is a notification light, it's definitely not going to be optional. They might allow you to select which apps it shows up for, but I think there will be some things for which you can not turn it off. Like SMS.

i think that the inclusion of a flashing led to notify for emails or imessages would be a worthy inclusion.
Surely we could always turn it off for certain alerts or all if you didnt want it to flash, but it seems to be a missing ingredient that many ios users want.

I would like to see a notification light, I also want to see a larger screen. Heck the device could have only those two upgrades and I would buy. I am afraid that apple won't enlarge the screen which may be a deal breaker for me. These big fingers need a bigger keyboard! ... :-)
