So I have been reading all the threads about the possibility of a iPhone 4s and I realized that something does not quite make sense with that idea. The iPhone 5 is going to have an amazing amount of demand. It is going to take up a large chunk of available iPhone manufacturing capacity and still will likely carry delayed shipping times for a long time after it is released. I don't think that anyone can reasonably argue against that. Why would Apple use up a chunk of there manufacturing capability on an iPhone 4s, a low price (less profit) device when they have the perfectly good iPhone 4 to sell? Logistically it just does not make sense. The advantage of continuing to sell the 4 is that they already have a large amount of supply in the channel, to keep up with demand after the iPhone 5 is released means supplying a much smaller amount of iPhone 4's to the supply channel. If they were to switch to a iPhone 4s it would result in them having to restock the channel which means producing many more units and not dedicating as much manufacturing capacity to the iPhone 5. In addition the logic above I also don't remember hearing any claims that the iPhone 4 production is winding down, just that less are being ordered which would make sense with what I said above. Just my opinion!
