    Hello

    I see the iPhone 5 is not much different than the actual iPhone, just a few enhancements but... my question is: Can I buy the actual iPhone once discontinued? It is gonna be cheaper.

    The iPhone 5 will have a faster processor (so what) and may be thinner (I do not care).

    Besides that I haven't seen any other enhancement. I believe I would go for the 4s at a cheaper price.

    Any opinion?

    Thank you.

    you can most likely still buy the current gen phones once the new ones are out. AT&T is still offering the 3GS so I don't really see why they wouldn't sell the 4's later on...

    and yes. it will be cheaper

    I'd like to know where I can find the specifications on the iPhone 5 :confused:

    And yes, I'm being facetious. If you don't care about faster (the A5 is beast), size, maybe more pixels in both cameras, maybe a bigger screen, etc etc, then sure, go for the iPhone 4.

    The 3GS is still on sale and it's been 2 years (right?) and sells for $50 (or is it free now?). So I'd suspect Apple to drop the 3GS and drop the iPhone 4 down by $100, like they did when to the 3GS when the 4 came out.

    The 2011iMac is not that different from the 2009 iMac, just a few enhancements. This years XYZ car is just last year's XYZ with improved body style, engine, handling and features; probably no reason to upgrade, right?

    ... The iPhone 5 isn't released yet... Anything we think might not be right... There are rumors, yes, but nothing concrete.

    Most likely, they would drop the 3gs and sell the iPhone 4 for $100.

    my standard advice

    If you need it, buy it.
    If you want it, wait.
