Millions of people will buy it, but not me, my money goes to the company that truly innovates in 2012, not rests on past success..

I am holding out for the new iPhone. I want a bigger display, dual/quad core, more ram and 10 meg pixel camera. I held off getting the i4S to wait for the newer version. I also hope it has LTE/4G. I and my wife both are waiting for this. I am really excited and it is hard to wait but for now I am more than happy with my i4. To me the i4S was not a upgrade worth missing out on the next version. I just hope it is released in June or July and not October or November. But still going to wait.

Honestly, was the iPhone ever really "cutting edge"? Think about it. When all the Android guys were making their screens larger, bumping processor speed and introducing 4G, iPhone was always just....well....there. They didn't compete by following in the footsteps of those companies. They stuck to their roots and made phones and an iOS that just plain WORKS. As an Android guy, my opinion was the iPhone was antiquated. I didn't make the jump earlier because of it. I thought of Apple as the company who made the computer I used for work and hated. But I got sick of my home PC always updating, crashing, and getting viruses. So I got a Mac, and love it. Then, I got tired of my Droid turning off for no reason, overheating, apps crashing or working slowly, and despite the processor speed, it seemed slow. So I switched to iPhone, and I'll never go back after seeing how flawlessly it operates for me.
The thing about innovation is a company making something that WORKS instead of churning out crap year after year that has so many issues you want to chuck it out the window. Small updates to change things like allowing you to delete individual photos in the stream shows they listen to their users and try to adapt to make people happy. Their customer service proves that. Try getting the same level of service from Dell or Motorola like you get at the Genius Bar or over the phone. Innovation doesn't always means making the same crap your competition turns out. It means being different but making sure you have a quality product to begin with.

I chose bigger display, still want and need a 4" display, if they can rework the phsyical device size and get the bigger display then I'm cool with that. I would have selected all of the above, but quad core isn't a big demand for me, LTE wasn't listed and while we are clearly expecting it nothing is a given and Apple could easily roll out yet another 3G only iPhone and the masses will still buy it (sad but true).
So LTE, bump in screen, remove the home button and perhaps save a small amount of space at the bottom for a slide to home feature

I love my ancient Siri-challenged iPhone 4 (from June 23, 2010), but it's time for an upgrade. I'm 99.9% committed to getting this year's iPhone. (Unless Apple does something insane like making them only in hot pink or adding a sliding keyboard or something...)
I still think Apple will keep the new iPhone about the same size overall as the 4/4S, but stretch the screen slightly and make the "bezel" on the longer edges thinner. 3.9" max. But no, I doubt Apple will change the aspect ratio to 1152x640. That would be an enormous pain for every single developer out there. I think it'll stay 960x640.

I will upgrade no matter what because I'm currently using the iPhone 3GS. I could upgrade today to the 4S, but why do that when the next iteration is right around the corner?
Some of the things I think would be really great though:
- Durable design
- More RAM (1GB)
- 10 Megapixel camera
- A better front facing camera
- Better speakers (Beats Audio?)
- Better camera position on the back. Its current position can cause shadowing on pictures depending on how you hold the phone.
- Glowing apple logo!!!
- It would be great to see a battery that can last 36 hours with moderate use.
I'd still be happy if we only got a few of the things listed above.

I voted other because:
1) my upgrade isnt due till mid 2013 (and i refuse to pay full price for ANY phone in mid-contract)
2) i plan on going as long as i can with my 4S, and as long as the new iPhone(5?) doesnt have any new features that i absolutely have to have, i will just wait it out.
i've never been the type to 'need' the latest and greatest as far as smartphones goes-if what i have works for me and i'm happy, which is most important, then thats all that matter to me

Truthfully, a lot will depend if I can still sell my current iPhone 4S for the upgrade cost. With the new carriers now having the iPhone, I don't know what that will do to reselling costs. Previously, when a new upgrade came out, I would sell my phone for the cost of upgrading to a new one. If I can't do that anymore, that will be a big factor in determining whether I upgrade or not.
Otherwise, assuming there is ANYTHING better, I will upgrade.

Yet another delay with BlackBerry 10 is what's getting me to look seriously at the next version of the iPhone or whatever high end Android device maybe out in the fall. I'm leaning more towards the iPhone though, simply because of my familiarity with iOS and its ecosystem.
