    "Apple is allegedly building two iPhone 5 models in place of a scheduled fall publish. According to an employee of an Apple part supplier, in attendance is good sense to believe with the purpose of the iPhone 5 will really be two devices: A ‘standard’ and ‘pro’ copy."

    Would these versions be welcomed or not?

    Apple already has a split-system.

    They sell this year's phone for one price and last year's phone for a much cheaper price.

    I don't see any reason why they'd give that up and start selling 2 brand-new models at different prices. I don't understand what that gains them over the current system. Any blog that says there will be a 'pro model' but doesn't explain how that's better than the current system doesn't count much in my opinion.

    I don't know but I'm in for one if it looks like that concept image!

    I kind of like the look but the idea of a pro doesn't really sit well with me...unless they keep the pro at the current price and have a cheaper version.

    I call shenanigans. Why sell a cheaper model when people would buy up the more expensive one if the cheaper one wasn't offered.

    That white one does look great, and so thin hard to believe that it will be able to do so much in such a thin case. Either way I have a feeling we will be surprise when it comes out.

    Like to see more interface changes than hardware.

    Is that a brushed metal back I spy? I much prefer the coloured backs :( I like the shape though.

    Same reason Apple sells both iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

    As long as the better iPhone's price does not exceed $299 for the highest version, I don't care.

    I would definitely be in for the pro model.

    I am a little confused why that source posted those pictures then said in their article the next iphone would only be a slight redesign.

    These images look more closely like concept for the next iPod Touch, NOT the next iPhone. Where's the silence switch? Why would it be a curved back? Why the hell would there be a metal back? Where are the Cameras? I'd honestly go Android and never look back in the next iPhone looked like this.
