    Guys I just got off the phone with Tim Cook. Turns out, they sent the wrong invite out. Below is the real one. I have to say, they fooled me guys, they fooled all of us.

    I'm guessing 5 announcements. 1) the new iPhone 2) iPod nano 3) iPod touch 4) iOS 6 - reintroduction with all the features 5) ??? Pretty sure it won't be iPad mini. That's too big to announce along side the new iPhone. (my best guess) - some new iPhone accessory or maybe the new and improved Siri. Although could also be the 5 new features of the iPhone - bigger screen, lte, nfc, new doc connector, & ?? - like indestructible guerrilla glass or something we don't even know about.

    That's kind of my thinking. I still don't think it will be called iPhone 5. I think Apple threw us a curve ball.

    I'm not sure what they will call the next iPhone... but using a numeric identifier makes sense for several reasons.

    Apple currently sells 3 different models of iPhone... they have the "flagship" model that they sell for top dollar - currently that's the iPhone 4S. Then they have the phone that the carriers sell for $99 - currently the iPhone 4. Finally they have the "free with contract" iPhone - currently the 3GS. When the new iPhone comes out, the 3GS will go away and everything bumps down the ladder one step.

    Using numeric identifiers is not nearly as important to the other products that Apple sells, because they only sell one version of each... this is true for the iPod (iPod Touch, Nano, Shuffle), the iPad (iPad and the soon to be announced Mini) and computers (15" MBP, 13" MBP, Retina MBP; 27" iMac, 21.5" iMac; Mac Mini). Sure, they sell different versions of each device, but each model is refreshed (or retired) with the entire product line... so there's no real reason to differentiate the current year models from the previous versions. Apple uses a relative identifier to mark the refresh timeframe (early 2012, mid-2010, etc). However, when the product line is refreshed, the older models are retired and no longer sold (after an initial "fire sale" effort).

    So I firmly believe that the next iPhone will definitely carry some type of identifier to denote it's place in the hierarchy of iPhones...

    I have absolutely nothing to go on, but I am sure they will perhaps strip things away (Ping) and perhaps streamline a couple of things.

    No, not necessarily. It's all part of the rumors and guessing that Apple has us doing. Nothing is known for sure except the date of the announcement.

    LOL I wouldn't mind that since 12/5 is my birthday.

    Granted I know alot of people would be pissed if Apple released it that long. Round up the pitchforks.

    No problem, my friend...I didn't mean for it to be harsh. I was actually watching the iMore Show via the UStream app when I typed my reply. Anyway, enjoy the rest of your shift and stay safe.
