fourth icon: iPhone missed call (missed the June announcement, pushed back to October)

The 1 on the phone icon is.. it'll be only on ONE carrier... Apple Wireless Network... After Apple puts Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and all the other smaller telecoms out of business with their awesome service... then when the other telecoms can no longer survive... they will be on sale and Apple will take over them all, combine all their spectrum, and create the Apple Super Wireless Network. Now everyone gets free mobile to mobile, no roaming charges, and would only have to pay for landline.

Judging from past invitations, Apple loves hidden meanings. I'm seeing a lot of "4" references here.

- The 4th of October as a double entendre.

- 4 icons.

- The sum of all visible digits, divided by the number of icons:
4+10+280+1=295.
2+9+5=16.
16/4=4

Or, If you take the map icon as meaning 1 Infinite Loop:
4+10+1+1=16
16/4=4.


Ok, I'll put my tinfoil hat away!

what about all the other digits on the clock face?

4+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+280+1 = 363. (not sure where to go from there)

or 4+1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+1+1 = 84 - clearly a reference to the 1984 Macintosh Commercial

or did you mean only the resulting time indicating by the clock hands: 10:00


now where did I put MY tin foil hat?

Have all the previous iPhones been unveiled at WWDC? This would mark the first time that the iPhone had its (technically) own event and therefore it's own coded invite messages. Or did the invites for WWDC 2010 make major references to the '4'?

As an aside, if you're ever bored, look back a year ago at all the rumors, mockups, etc. of what the '4' was "going" to be. It'll give you some good laughs.

Bunch of teardrops until we saw the actual thing on Gizmodo, if I remember correctly.

As we all know, a period is how one ends a sentence. I just used one at the end of that last sentence. And that one. Also that one...

For the Apple invite, it signifies the end of Apple. You heard it here first! Apple is being bought by RIMM, makers of the BlackBerry, so they can start releasing their AppleBerry combination phone: the FruitFone!

Genius, Tim Cook. Pure genius.

4g phones don't exist yet. The lte phones that do exist however drain battery life in record time.

I think there is a high probability of HSPA+ '4G', not so sure about LTE '4G', and definitely not the ITU-T defined LTE Advanced '4G' you seem to be referencing.

I am for one am excited to see the announcement and see what comes out of it. At&t doesn't seem to be allowing people to upgrade early, so I cant until Nov. And unless an iphone 5 is released with a thinner wider screen with curved back, then I will probably wait for the next generation and be happy with ios5 and my iphone 4.

So this appeals to you more than actual new features? Your current phone too fat, skinny, and square for your tastes?

After all these years with Verizon I can finally drop our two Treo BRICKS. Since being grandfathered into a data plan a month or so ago there's now no reason for me to continuing holding back and join the crowd. I hope the rumors are true as we'll be purchasing two right off the bat. Yay for me!! Yay for my wife!!

actually the glass on the back for me is very slippery that is why I use a case, but I would prefer not to. A metal back I'm sure would be easier to hold as well as the shape, and I personally wouldn't mind a slightly larger screen. But also new features are an obvious inclusion in the product, I do not feel my phone slow though by any means, the main feature I would find most useful would be an improved camera.

And 1 could be meaning 1 world phone (CDMA & GSM).
Lets "Talk iPhone" could be meaning it has voice recognition feature.

That's a given at this point. Even though nothing is confirmed, we've known that since the Verizon iPhone was taken apart by iFixit.

No no no, it's 280 new features on 1 new iPhone. Who's going to be the lucky devil?

How much do you think iPhone 4 16GB will cost after the iPhone 5 come out?

Provided it exists? $99.

I see an 8GB iPhone 4 with GSM+CDMA at $99 equally likely.

Interesting invite. It is an iPhone event primarily. iOS 5, iCloud, et al were already talked about. Though, the iPod older sibling should be a focal point of this event too - maybe at the end. Anyhow, I'm excited too.

Remember when the report came out that Apple would be focusing on software-driven product refresh cycles rather than releasing new hardware each year?

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles...s_analyst.html

Yeah, this'll be an iPhone 4 case with some updated guts and a shiny new operating system. Curb your enthusiasm, guys.

What about for an unlocked iPhone 4?

At 8GB? $599. Or whatever the lowest-priced unlocked iPhone 4 is now. Think it might be $699. Whichever.

No need to demonstrate that. It's already superior. They could introduce the same feature as Android and even that feature would be better designed. And the battery would last.

Nah, it's not a risk Apple can take. Not after almost a year and a half. They gotta bring out something new, iPhone 4 design will be iPhone 4S as the cheaper one, iPhone 5 will be kick-ass.

Apple never swore that all phones would come out in June so we can't really say it is late. This could be when they planned to release it all along. And rather than it being delayed because of the verizon iPhone, maybe that release was moved up because they were changing up the time table

If you don't need a data plan, then you don't want a smartphone. Isn't an iPod Touch what you need? I don't understand why anyone would buy a smartphone without a data plan.

Most likely to get an iPod that works as a phone. But you do lose a lot of functionality without the cellular network.

One where no one gives a damn about Twitter integration, i.e. The One Most People Live In. I've been using iOS 5 since beta 1, and while at first I thought it was a huge step forward, after playing with the latest Android build on a Galaxy S II, I learned it's just an attempt to catch up. iCloud is a great idea, but it's not a game-changer, and if the new hardware isn't as good if not better than what is currently on the market, there are going to be a lot of folks like me who jump ship. I like Apple products, hell I'm typing this up on a 2009 13" MBP, but I'm not a mindless slave to everything that comes out of the House Jobs Built like some of you are.

"What I Want" is for the new model to be as good if not better than what the competition has had on the market for months. As long as that is the case, I won't be disappointed. If it's not, I won't be an iPhone user much longer.
