    I'm guessing mid July. Doesn't matter to me as I'll probably stick with my iP4 anyway though.

    That's MY problem, Jerrry.. I don't have one at all yet and can't make a decision..Damm.
    Just go for it. Remember, the contract is the expensive part.

    I'm more concerned of how soon iOS 5 will be out than hardware.

    I think it is a rumor, just a rumor and it will be out in July. They will give devs a month from the iOS event and we will also see the iPhone 5 at the event. Stupid rumors.

    I suppose if it doesn't happen that might make sense... It is a developers conference after all. I guess only announcing/previewing software makes sense. So I am hoping for by September/October (and not just because that's when I can upgrade )

    I can only assume what he is referring to is the leak, in which the Gizmodo editor got his hands on the iP4 before the announcement. Maybe Apple is trying to downplay a June/July launch to prevent a frenzy of people trying to do anything to get a peek? Who knows, I'm just guessing on what his post could of meant..

    I think that author is referring to that blog that had accidently gotten a test iphone 4 and released pics and stuff about it (cant remember the name, I'm thinking engadget but I think I'm wrong)

    I say Apple sticks to its regular schedule (june)... It's just that employees can no longer hit the Cupertino bars.

    Apple is in a precarious situation right now. Many people are coming off a two-year iPhone 3 GS contract and are in position to either purchase a year-old iPhone 4, or jump over to android. As much as everyone is touting the 4's greatnesss, the simple truth is when the average user walks into a Verizon or AT&T store, they are looking for the "best or newest phone - not something a year old. Even the sales staff (at least at Verizon) push people towards Android. Apple will need to release something this summer or risk losing customers.

    Perhaps.

    However, I would argue that many iPhone customers are phone owners because of the iPhone. If the iPhone had never been, they would still not have a phone. It is far easier for me to visualize a PC user buying a Mac than the other way around. To me the time to buy a new phone has far more to do with when Apple announces one than it does with when my contract with AT&T ends.

    I hope the next iPhone finally gets a 4 inch screen! 960x640 will still be amazing at the size. I just need a bigger screen! Sometimes I really do have a hard time reading on the screen and it would nice to have a bigger screen when writing. If the next iPhone doesn't have a bigger screen, I'll go to a ATT Nexus S.

    I can't say I agree with you 100%. I do think what you say is mostly true, but there are many other factors too. The thing is, the iPhone 4 may be a year old, but it's arguably the best phone on the market for a lot of people. When I got it on Verizon, I could have had any android phone, some of which have "better specs" (regardless of performance), but I wanted a phone that just WORKS. I wanted the Apple experience. I wanted a phone that would sync with my computer easily and completely. I wanted the Retina display. For me, the iPhone is the best phone on the market (especially from what I hear about the current Android frontrunners). And short of the Thuderbolt, it's the newest phone to come to Verizon, even though it's a year old. The phone just DOESN'T act like it's a year old phone. There are a lot of factors playing into what phone a person chooses, and I think a late summer/early fall release won't be that big of a deal.

    My God, is three months REALLY that long to wait? I mean, I understand how long one quarter is in the tech world trust me. However is the biannual upgrade going to burn a whole in people's pocket so bad they say "kcuf Apple, if they won't deliver the same time they have in the past I'm going to Android/Blackberry!" I really think not.

    I think the rumors about a later release were pushed out by apple in an attempt to get more sales when they release it in june/july like normal.

    Would be a brilliant marketing strategy though
    I think you are right here. This must be a marketing strategy only.

    Yeah, I also think they will launch it between mid and end of the summer.
