Apple iPhone 5 (5G): Concept Images and Specifications
The first Concept images of Iphone 5 or iphone 5G has been revealed and shows how the device is going to be.
As reported from RedmondPie, this image of an iPhone 5 prototype has been created courtesy of the guys over at German website Handyflash. The phone really looks awesome and i’d be great if we can see it in WWDC 2011.
The design has been slimed down further and made of thin LED TV, Now come the specs which includes 4G download speeds of up to 100Mbps, an enhanced Retina Display Screen with added Backlight feature, 10.2 megapixel camera and a new generation battery too.
Now if we can only see the 3D function in it it would really rocks.

I would be very, very disappointed in Apple if they made another 3GS like phone. I really hope Apple takes a few notes from this youtube video about the new HTC Sense. Ignore the phone, and the UI but concentrate on the features it adds and tell me that wouldn't be amazing to have on a iPhone.

Dudes, let's stop comparing iPhone 5 to 3GS. It's really annoying. The 3GS looked the same because Steve Jobs was sick. That's why the nano, iPod touch, and many other products also had zero physical changes. Think about it.
Anyway, that mockup is terrible. They didn't even think to use an iOS 4 screenshot...

HTC actually copied a few things from iOS in their new Sense revision... And there really isn't much new in it to be honest. I'm not a hater btw, I absolutely love HTC. They were the first (after Apple) to really put out high quality, beautiful smartphones with good UI. However HTC devices are still not iPhones.. Anyone who owns an iPhone 4 and has used HTC's Sense UI will know what I mean. There are so many little UI cracks in Android and Sense UI that I just can't take it. I know it seems dramatic but really, Samsung's TouchWiz is much better-implemented (though less attractive on face level), but still not iOS...
Apple's UI is literally as close as any UI could be to being PERFECTED. Sense UI has some nice little widgets and such, but it's not close to iOS in terms of perfection...
As usual with iOS devices, they don't do everything that other things may do, but what they do *do*, they do better than anything else.

To start, the ring profiles. Half the time my iPhone rings, I can't hear because I'm either on a bus, or in a crowded area. I love that Sense knows whether the phone is concealed or out in the open. I also like that if it's out and it's too loud, you can just flip it over to silence it. This would be great for when I'm in class and forget to silence my phone, or for ignoring unwanted calls.
Also, I like how they added social feeds to the caller ID. I think that's pretty slick.
Another great feature is how the maps are indexed on the device. I really thought that when Apple bought PlaceBase that we would have had this feature.
While they didn't add a slew of new features, they still added some pretty nice additions to their overlay that would be great to have on iOS. I really don't see what they "copied from Apple". I think they took some ideas, such as the compass orientation in the maps, but I think most of the ideas were pretty original. I hope Apple doesn't lose sight of the iPhone. While the iPhone 4 was pretty innovative, it doesn't seem like it brought the ground breaking experience that the original iPhone did. Although that same impact couldn't happen now due to common-ness of touch screen devices, I still think that they could think of little things to add to iOS like HTC.
Moving on to what I want from the next iOS:
The ability to customize all system sounds.
A android-like CarHome app.
Indexed Maps for better navigation and use in low signal areas.
Cloud music/streaming service.
What I want from the next iPhone:
A 4" screen in addition to the current model.
Better front and rear cameras even though they are already good.
The A4 chip clocked at the same speed as the iPad's.

Live wallpaper: have you ever actually used this on an Android phone? It lags every time you return to the home screen. It's extremely annoying IMO and Apple won't do it until it can be done much better.
Possibly a better camera next gen but the current one is really awesome IMO. 8MP won't make it any better it will just make the pictures bigger, so I'm hoping Apple doesn't go to 8MP.
iPad is slow compared to iPhone 4 actually.
Design will definitely be different to escape the stigma of the current design.
Oh and social feeds in the caller ID.. That's ridiculous. So much unneeded complication. How often do you stare at the screen before you answer your phone? Never. Social news feed updates while on speaker phone with someone (or using headphones), that would be useful.
