    so with all this talk about just a trash ip4S instead of an ip5, what are you going to buy instead for a new phone if its just a minor upgrade? this isnt just curiosity, i want to take your opinion for selecting my backup. also, how much do you think apple profits will decrease if they release a ip4S instead of an ip5?

    Profits won't decrease, because their are Apple junkies who have to buy every single thing Apple releases, even if it was shit wrapped in a box.

    I love Apple, but if they think they can wait a year and a half and just upgrade the camera/processor, I'm not buying.

    I'm hoping for the Samsung Galaxy S2, and that is something I NEVER thought I would say. But Apple is disappointing me. They better issue a redesign or I'm done.

    Profits will always increase with a new phone, as long as they are priced correctly (e.g. The phone costs $199, when it costs $180 to make).


    Under no circumstances will Apple have negative profits anytime soon (Losses).



    I think they'll release an iPhone 5, a major upgrade. Maybe with LTE in it. Maybe that's why they're pushing it back. Actually on second thought, no. It'll only be 4G. (HSPA+).

    i guess i do sortof see that happening. there will always be some people who will just be "omfg, its NEW!! i have to have the 'new' one, even though its almost the same as the old one!!" sortof like the ipod touch 2g to the 3g, right?;):D:p

    i know they will never loose money, i just meant how much do you think they wont be making, but potentialy could be. (i.e. 3million/month down to 1.7million/month profit decrease)
