Where have you been all summer? Have you not seen all the leaks? I hate to break it to you but if you think Apple is gonna give us anything other than a stretched 4S then you are dreaming. It's obvious Apple thinks they are on top and always will be and doesn't care to keep up with the competition who has passed them and is speeding off into the sunset. It would take some really revolutionary hardware to impress me, but nothing is out there to indicate they are doing anything other than another incremental bump. We know iOS6 is a big dud and looks like a joke compared to Androids point release of Jellybean. We know we're getting a 16:9 screen to fit another row of stagnant icons, iOS6 doesn't contain anything else that could spice things up.

Sorry but I think I know my friends better than you, their minds were changed by a family member who got a S3, you see, not everybody has blind devotion to a company, even if they are big fans of them. I was surprised they made the switch but apparently the S3 made their iPhones look dated, I'm still waiting to see for myself, I can wait until Sep 12th, although I'm not expecting anything special..
Anyway, if your friends were that much in a hurry to get a new phone that they couldn't wait till Apple made the announcement, then that is their loss, and I doubt they were the die hard Apple fans that you say they were.
I really hope you aren't insinuating that I am one of those fashion victims, as you would be sorely mistaken. I could care less if it looks too much like this or that, I care about the hardware and the software, period. I care about the screen being wider, not just taller, I care about getting a better chip that is much faster, I care about a better camera, I care about getting a notification light, and I care about an operating system that isn't stuck in 2007. I always thought it was the fanboys that cared about showing off their iPhones and Macbooks, putting different colored bumpers on their phones everyday to match their skinny jeans and sweater vests..
Personally, I think people are making too big of a deal out of the whole name thing, and the look thing as well. I've gotten used to hearing about the looks, though. People complain every year about what it looks like, "OMG, the new iPhone looks just like the one last year, I can't get the new one now as no one will know that I have the new one", lmao!
