but Apple had to skip it and just do the 4S because of ongoing lawsuits with Samsung and that they were forced to delay iPhone 5 until they can sort those issues out Seriously, Apple isn't that dumb. they would have known that 4S alone would come and bite them in the a$$ after 16 months of waiting. It cannot have been the only weapon in their arsenal, and many rumors that we've heard all along hints that 4S was supposed to be the complementing model. This coupled with all those rumors that we've been seeing, certainly gives credibility to the rumor that Apple was forced to ditch iPhone 5 last minute and pitch iPhone 4S as the 'new revolutionary thing' That would explain why they looked so nervous though. It was like going to a concert with few OK songs, with big finale, but having to do last minute changes to ditch the finale and encore ================================== it's amazing the amount of ignorance people show Just because it's Apple, people think that they are immune from lawsuits, patent challenges, etc. Don't get me wrong. I'm an apple fangirl too. Got my fair share of cash dumped at Apple Store. But just because I like them doesn't mean that they are free from the real world stuff All you teenage boys that worship apple, wake up and smell the real world. Even if Samsung wasn't directly involved with preventing launch of iPhone 5 as planned (although many sources dictate this), Samsung and other companies do have the capacity to hinder Apple and their products launch, as Apple is heavily relying on other manufacturers for parts, and many patents vital for wireless technology is owned by Apple's competitors. You can press that down button to show your disapproval, but it doesn't change what is actually true.
