    Why are so many panicing over the possible 4s? just because one person said it? there are tons more articles stating the re-design as the iphone 5...plus pics of said cases for a larger screen.

    One source? I'd say about one hundred sources...

    EDIT: Don't be thrown off by my sarcasm.

    People are panicking because they swore the invites would go out today.

    Not really

    I've seen two articles but LOADS stating it will be the iphone 5 plus clear pics of cases being made which show a bigger screen.

    Not panicking, the realization is just getting to me. That there might not be a 5...

    I would take each 'source' with a grain of salt. Don't believe in anyone or you will be setting yourself up for disappointment.

    My great-granddaughter, my neighbor, my pizza delivery guy, my personal dog groomer, that makes it 5 sources.

    It's called sarcasm. I'm exaggerating.

    There is going to be an iPhone 5. In fact, that's all there is going to be.

    I'm not worried about the "only 4s" report today.

    Ad revenue and page hits give them a great motivation to come with some sort of doomsday worst case scenario headline so I don't really trust em' ;)

    The next iPhone release will be the 5th iPhone, regardless of what you have to say.

    Apple wouldn't wait 16 months to release only a 4s. :rolleyes:

    Apple have this locked down, these analysts are just guessing like the rest of us.

    This x10000000000000000

    Just a few days ago a JP Morgan analyst said there will be a 5 and 4s. Now another one comes out today and says only 4s. They know absolutely nothing. The only thing anyone knows is that only Apple knows. In 2 weeks all will be revealed. :)

    In all honesty, i realize that, but i can't consider an A5 chip, and a 8MP camera, plus an antenna which should've been released last year. As a 16month worthy upgrade.

    Same here. Just depends on how cocky Apple is about feeling we will buy their new phone regardless if they really upgrade it or not...

    Right, and here we have a new Android device coming out every other month. The only thing those phones are missing, is iOS. But tech-wise, talk about innovation.

    This is specifically why I want Samsung and Apple's other competitors to win, and for Apple to face great competition so that they start pulling up their socks.

    I understand that they practically have the tablet market, but the smartphone market was once Apple's, with the iPhone original, 3G and 3GS as well. If anything, the iPhone should be the most upgraded out of all of their products. But i guess the fan-base speaks for itself, the next iPhone will sell better than the previous one, regardless.

    The main cause for speculation of no redesigned iPhone this year is the complete lack of evidence of a redesigned iPhone. No components, no leaks from suppliers, no unique-looking phones left at bars... ;) . The only evidence supporting the existence of a revamped form factor for the iPhone is a few Chinese manufacturers that have made sample cases for the rumored product and the renderings that CaseMate posted on its website. With any other recent products, we had loads of information/pics of at least components several weeks before the products were released. We have pics of what appear to be revamped iPhones with the iPhone 4 form factor, and reports that millions of them have been manufactured and are just waiting for iOS to be flashed onto them. We have nothing comparable for the "iPhone 5". Apple may be fairly tight in terms of security, but it is a large company, with a multitude of suppliers. It just seems improbable that we would have this little this close to the event. The only way that I can see an iPhone 5 coming soon would be if it comes out several months after the iPhone 4S, which would be an unusual update cycle for Apple.

    I really feel like it's been Apple's game all along to get us debating whether it's a spec bump or a redesign. Its been nothing but a clever way to stir up iPhone talk. Even my 70 year old dad knows about the iPhone confusion and he doesn't know about anything about technology or computer stuff.

    At the worst, there will be a one month delay on the iPhone 5. No iPod 3G. You guys really need to learn how to sift through these rumors.
