    Surely if there is another iphone at a smaller cost along with the 5 it will be the 4s but surely that imples it will be a better verison of the iphone 4? when surely this likely won't be the case?

    Thats the thing though how can it be the 4s or plus when it is said to be a lower end model GB wise?

    Apple claimed the S stood for Speed, and when Apple released the iPhone 3GS it was manly just an internal hardware improvement with no physical changes, so with many rumors floating around that Apple is only going to be improving the internal hardware and not making any physical changes from the current iPhone 4, the internet has decided to call this device the iPhone 4S (to signify no external changes, only an internal upgrade).

    The iPhone 4 Plus just implies that its an improvement to the current iPhone 4 with a few spec bumps (a lose of GeeBee's but a gain of an A5 processor is still an upgrade).

    So the feeling is the 4s will be an upgrade over the 4? ok that makes sense then.

    so it's basically a lower grade to the 5.

    But supposedly (and I cannot find the link) cheaper, built for those people on pre-pay plans to compete with the phones you find hanging in Wal Mart.
