Sounds like Google had a few ideas on updating their maps app for while.  And they were just sitting around for a while in some early beta/labs form.  But all of sudden, now that Apple is expected to give them the chop at WWDC, they want to quickly announce these beta features as soon as possible to save face.   I find it extremely hard to believe this is some coincedence that Google is doing this, in San Francisco, less than one week before the heavily rumored Apple...
  Its a phone.  A device that is pretty much one big screen, with a few little buttons & a connector.  How much different will it ever look than elongated version of the current theme?
I disagree.  They could make the phone is almost the same overall size factor, with a bigger 4" screen, simply by using a thinner bezel.  The phone doesnt have to be "inconveniently large".   4G is already primetime, why do you think Apple has already introduced a 4G iPad?  4G is currently available in every major US city.  Outside of that fact, Verizon already has 2/3rds of the US covered and is still bringing cities online, AT&T is getting close to 1/2, Sprint & Tmobile...
  I disagree with the "lack of common sense" comment.  Sleepy nailed it perfectly when he said that 3.5" was is just too darn small these days. it was fine in 2007, but now, with so much rich media, videos, ability to see full websites, productivity apps, etc, 3.5" is downright restrictive.  I'm not saying everyone wants the ridiculous sized Galaxy Note mini-tablet as a phone.  But the way we use a smartphone these days is a helluva lot different than what we did 5 years...
I dont think its ugly, I just dont think its gorgeous either.  Either way its not impressive enough to make me switch from my 4S.   While I appreciate the competition & motivation that the Android OS and its manufacters (especially Samsung) have provided to Apple and its iPhone, it still seems like a bunch of spec whoring.  Apple competitors still dont understand the attraction to Apple.. comes from the user experience, elegance of its devices and that if they are...
Actually something else just occurred to me.  Since I purchased my iPhone4S (and millions of others) with Verizon in October last year, I'm still locked into a contract anyways.  If a new iPhone5 with 4G/LTE gets announced this year, then I would have to pay full price for it anyways.  My "available upgrade" would be effective until October 2013.  
Works fine enough for me to stay a Verizon customer.  Sucks that I have to pay full price, to keep the exact rate plan I already have.. but atleast I get 4G/LTE speed.. on a proven network.. and still keep unlimited data.  Sprint may be truly unlimited.. but the unreliability of their network and the slow speeds in the DC area make it useless for me.  If Im going to pay for something, it should atleast work.   I currently pay $29 a month for unlimited data from...
The Apple Store succeeded for pretty much every reason that JCPenny will fail under this new guidance.   The success of the Apple Store came from these reasons: 1) It showcased ONLY products made by/for Apple products.  Many products can only be found in an Apple store or online. 2) Apple stores are small, intimate and minimalist by design.  Almost boutique in feel. 3) Consumers were able to directly consult Apple employees before, during and after an Apple...
  Still not a perfect solution.  I looked at straighttalk, and you have to be VERY aware of your data use each month.  Anything over 2GB and they either throttle or STOP your data service.  No I'm not making this up, its all listed clearly in the straighttalk thread over at slickdeals.net.  As with most things in life, you get what you pay for.   http://slickdeals.net/f/3898068-Straight-Talk-to-Allow-Any-GSM-Phone-on-the-45-Unlimited-Plan   Unconfirmed: $42/per month if...
4" sounds like a good middleground to me.   3.5" is too small for me.  Anything close to 5" looks like a tablet and lights up the whole damn house.  4" seems just about right.   Chances are I'll be buying it regardless, but my main concerns are:   1) Bigger screen 2) 4G/LTE 3) Complete redesign
