    Correct, with apple not naming the new iPad a iPad 3 its a clear indication they are moving away from the numbers. All their other products are not numbered and I think it's something the fans more than likely started by numbering the phones.

    Not really. The ipad is more along the lines of their computers which also do not have numbers. If the iphone comes out and is not numbered then yes they are moving away from the number scheme. I still think they will keep a number scheme for iphones.

    Because causing mass confusion for people is a bad idea. Just because Apple isn't calling the third gen iPad the "iPad 3", doesn't mean they should do the same thing with the iPhone 5.

    To be more specific every apple line of products don't have a numbering scheme except for the iPhone and iPad. The iPhone and iPad are a little more understandable as previous models are still sold. The others when something becomes outdated apple stops producing, making it useless to keep a numbering scheme.
    I personally think the iPad will do just fine without the scheme and the iPhones won't be that big of a deal. Online sites like eBay and amazon will just start numbering them by generation. The iPod touch seems to do just fine keeping the same form factor.

    Without having a numbering scheme, won't buying accessories like cases for the different phones be confusing? Can accessory manufactures use the term 6th generation or similar if Apple doesn't?

    "Revolutionary, redefining iPhone, that looks exactly like the last iteration and has the Apple trademark built-in obsolescence."

    Think that will roll off the tongue in the next keynote?

    I'd guess since they obviously don't care about the numbers actually matching up to the generation, it's because the iPhone coming out this year will be called the 5.

    2G First
    3G second
    4S fifth
