How many people could/would buy an iPhone 5 if it was released tonight instead of the 4S had some companies not moved up eligibility? Would most of you pay the ~$200 to break your contract + the $200+ for the latest version when you just got the 4 a year ago? I mean after all, it's just a phone guys. It's naive to think Apple isn't on a cycle, specifically a 2 year cycle...kind of like the one 99% of people sign up for when they buy their iPhone. The 4S isn't for people that got the 4 at launch..it's for people like me that got the 3GS. I prefer a redesign like everyone else. But I APPRECIATE modest improvements when my upgrade happens to be eligible as well. If you got the 4..quit whining, your lucky to be in that segment of the "cycle".
