Has anyone considered the iPhone 4S being announced on Monday and released in September? Surely that would be smart as to make something for people to look forward to, and stop a lot of people being tempted by Android devices such as the SGS2. Not saying it's going to happen, it would be a smart move on Apple's part in my opinion though. EDIT: (adding reasoning from my later post) I don't see why it's unlikely. In the UK, where I live, the iPad 1 price dropped significantly, about 20% cheaper, after it had been released earlier in the USA. This presumably helped to relieve stocks of it whilst gaining market share from the Xoom etc due to lower pricing. And this is Apple we are talking about. They like to make a surprise. Think back to WWDC '10, "you think you've seen the iPhone 4, but you haven't seen anything yet". They combated all the negative hype very well. Also, think about the other phones that were available this time last year. Barely any stood a chance against any iPhone. However, this time round, their is a myriad of competitive devices. The Galaxy S2 is selling very well, 1000000 handsets sold in Korea alone. I think Apple realise this and know they have to get their act together and pull out all the stops this summer, otherwise their market share will decrease.
