    So there has been a lot of discussion about the next iPhone being called the 4 or HD or 4G or whatever.

    Does anyone else think that it may be called something else entirely... Like X or XL.

    Thoughts?

    iPhone X doesn't sound very Apple-like IMO... I'm leaning towards iPhone 4 or HD. :)

    I'm thinking just iPhone. But only time will tell.

    I was thinking that as well. Give it a throwback... I feel like a lot of the new iPhone users don't even know what an original iPhone looks like.

    But, to not give too much credit to Gizmodo, it will be pronounced with a soft G :eek:

    I'd hate for Apple to use 'HD' in the name. Not only is it cliché, but not an accurate description. I'm thinking iPhone A4/ iPhone 3GP (s was for speed, p is for power) / or just iPhone.

    Wow, iPhone HD sounds dumb, like a retro iPod with Hard Drive.

    iPhone HD is my guess. I think going to iPhone again would be fine too.

    Well, it would be very un-Apple-like, but Apple has not been Apple-like so maybe iPhone 3GS-HD

    I'm still hoping for iPod mobile, because it seems to me the iPod brand will die off eventually if they don't incorporate it into the nomenclature of a product that will survive convergence-dom.

    X is the Roman numeral 10. It's pronounced QuickTime 10.

    iPhone IV?

    its a toss up between iPhone HD or iPhone 4G but i think since it will belive to think that the new iPhone will be "4G" capable i think 90% positve that it will be iPhone HD.

    I think either iPhone 4 or iPhone HD are the most likely.

    It IS called OS Ten...

    Agreed. "Oh-ess ten" has always been the correct, and official Apple, pronunciation.

    Pronouncing the "X" phonetically makes it sound a little obscene, like "Oh-ess-sex" or something. Not what Apple wants!

    Yeah, kind of. But they won't call the iPhone, iPhone X (10).
