Backtrack a to last year. There were reports that Apple was readying two phones, the 4S and 5. And I am paraphrasing here, 'the iPhone was is a thing of beauty'.... tapered/teardrop design etc. Any one remember those news? Whatever happened to that? Were there all baseless rumors? What if the whole 'longer iPhone 4S is the new iPhone 5' is an elaborate hoax by Apple (they do have the resources to pull off something like this), and this is just Tim 'doubling down on secrecy'? I am not placing any money on this but all my hopes are here. A longer iPhone 4S would be a major disappointment. I was one of those that was expecting a big leap design-wise.
