    I am just wondering why people thing that the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 4s. I hear people saying that because it will be a minor spec bump it does not deserve to be called the iPhone 5. I just wish these people will realize that the original naming process for the iPhone was originally to put emphasis on the 3g radio it had.

    iPhone v1 = Called iPhone when it was released.
    iPhone v2 = Called the iPhone 3G to place emphasis on the fact it had a 3g radio.
    iPhone v3 = Called the 3gs even though it was the 3rd iphone. But with some consumers out there the naming was for the best. I can hear the morons now "Iphone 3 They took somehing out I am not buying it if they took something out"

    IPhone v4 = Called the iPhone 4, (I wonder why) It also gave them a very good comparison name to go against the evo 4g, as people started to believe the iPhone 4 had a 4g radio in it. (those who are not tuned into the tech world don't research the stuff and a AT&T salesman can tell them anything.)

    iPhone v5 = Well why would they name it anything other. it would be stupid to confuse consumers anymore. (iPhone 4s then a year later the iPhone v6 will be called the iPhone 5)

    Because they are not changing the design just increasing ram maybe speed and possibly camera like they did with 3gs
