Walk like an E-gyp-tian. Now that's funny. And I also agree with Phone UI, all these leaks takes all the fun out of it. We basically know everything about the phone before it even is announced. I'll be getting one anyway as I'm currently using a crapdroid. Counting the days!

...which if true means these aren't all "leaks" but instead intentional advance promo work coming from Apple.
One month and three days and counting here as well.
I've been looking forward to this day. My old pre-smart phone died while waiting for Verizon to get the iPhone, so I went crapdroid. Now that I'm off that contract, I've been highly awaiting the next iPhone to come out.

Now that Steve is gone, the fear of punishment for leaks is diminished. We'll see more of them than when Steve was alive.
The iPhone 4 was leaked completely. Steve even acknowledged that on stage.
My curiosity's piqued at why you think Apple would go to the trouble of introducing a brand new resolution and not actually use it. Apple's not the type to put stuff on their hardware that isn't for any purpose. I'm sure you've seen those PC laptops (and towers, of course) with the plastic cut-out for a VGA port, but there's no port and the piece of plastic supposed to be cut out is still there with an outline in its shape. That's basically the equivalent of giving us a larger screen and not using it.
Don't worry! No one was told about retina displays before the iPhone 4 was released and everyone did just fine.
The people denying the apparent new iPhone design are akin to science-deniers. In the face of mounting evidence, they cling to some irrational and illogical hope of something completely contrary to fact-based reality.
Gotta love that, comparing rumors to science!
Mind you, I am not saying some of the leaked parts are not legit. They may well be. I am just saying that TC and co. may actually have an ace up their sleeve, so the doubling-down thing may yet turn out to be as much science as these rumors. We'll see.
