Perhaps they'll finally drop the suffix, and it'll just be iPhone. In a range of prices, and colours. All under the banner if 'The New iPhone'

I would maybe believe that if the iPad Mini had just been called the "iPad" (similar to how the MBA, MBP, and iMac all come in different sizes). But since they didn't take that route, I don't think it's possible they'll take that for the iPhone. Especially because it is much easier to differentiate the iPads (I'd like to look at the 8" iPad... I used to have a 10" iPad... etc). How would they do that with iPhones? "I'd like to get the cheaper iPhone"?? Apple would never want people to think of any iPhone as being cheap.

I think you're on too something. Having two models with numbers would be confusing.

It may be something similar... but iPhone S is too much like Galaxy S, so that's not gonna happen. I do feel like Apple may try to get rid of the numbering system. It is their only hardware that uses it.

The elitist mess in this thread is appalling. Most people can afford a $200 cell phone every two years. I think this is designed more for those going prepaid which is a growing market. You already have $99 iPhones on the carriers. This is for the full price buyers. Your average American cannot afford a $650 cell phone. Apple isn't the status symbol it used to be for the higher end. It's a mass market company that sells to the masses. They are out to make the most $ they can. Only pandering to the upper class doesn't accomplish that. Trust me, the projects are full of iPhones.

With due respect, put your self-righteous indignation back on the shelf and exercise your sense of humor a bit more. It seems to be a bit atrophied.

Yes, though I'd suggest the target is more the global/emerging markets where the flagship iphones succumb to the lower end android phones due to cost. Consider the market potential in India and China vs. the prepaid market in the U.S.
