    the iPhone 5 will be released for both AT&T and Verizon next Feb (2012) and will anger(?) or disappoint everyone else who's waiting for the next model.



    Doesn't make sense...



    IPhone 5 will come out when it is ready just like any other Product. As far as people getting angry well let them, I'd rather see solid updates than to have Apple avoid moving forward because a customer got angry over a new phone.

    All the stupids will buy the new Verizon iPhone without thinking of the relatively imminent release of iPhone 5. Perhaps Verizon has already worked out a deal with Apple where they will offer a great deal on an upgrade when that happens.



    I'm also a bit surprised they didn't name it something else, like "iPhone 4v" or something. It seems odd to have two products with the same name that aren't actually the same thing and don't even operate if you buy the wrong one for your network.



    5.5 months is relatively imminent?

    Huh?

    I thought it was ALL about choice.



    The big announcement here, tho', was the 5 device hotspot. THAT'S the competition I've been waiting for.

    Verizon, AT&T.... go at it!

    yeah, slight exaggeration from me. sorry.



    still, if you've been waiting for three years, what's six months more? I know if it was me, I'd wait anyway.

    YEAH. If ATT doesn't offer this by iPhone 5, I will make the jump to Verizon.

    I suppose this means it has a sim card slot for traveling abroad to use GSM....this is great news!

    Can I use my iPhone 4 while traveling abroad?



    Yes, customers can use iPhone for voice and text in over 40 countries with data service in over 20 countries. For service availability and rate information, visit International Roaming Rates and Coverage. When travelling outside of these 40 destinations, the Global Travel program is the perfect short-term solution for the occasional or infrequent global traveler who needs to stay in touch when travelling internationally.

    No, I don't think people buying an iPhone4 now are stupid, hell they've been waiting for years and years. They'll see the refined antenna design, etc. it would be a good time to take the plunge for many. I'm on my iPhone4 at least until end of this year and even then I'll be seein' what the iPhone5 brings.



    As for iPhone4 on Verizon or ATT... Those are really "teh stupids" if they get the WRONG BLOODY PHONE for their network!

    I have one word for you...



    HA!



    About damn time Apple.



    And now that it is a reality there will be no more endless mind numbingly boring speculation. I am sure there will still be comparisons, infantile competition and vitriol but at least we all can have iPhones. May the future be more interesting!

    Thank God, I can finally get rid of my buggy Droid phone. The bugs introduced in the Froyo update have annoyed me to no end. The two most annoying ones were:



    1) Cannot connect to Infrastructure WiFi.. ( Worked fine on 2.1 )



    2) Ruined AAC+ Streaming over 3G ( Worked fine on 2.1 )



    3) Camera never seems to work correctly. Very buggy and laggy in all Android versions....



    I can't wait...

    What is the announced feature that you are waiting for in the iPhone 5?

    AT&T will get iphone 5 first just like xbox 360 gets map packs first for every call of duty game.

    Verizon has once again crippled a device.



    Why would I pay more (given good coverage where I am at) for:



    No Concurrent Data/Voice (Verizon users....trust me...this is like power windows in a car...once you have it, you wonder how you lived without it)



    No Free Wifi



    No international coverage (this also results in less demand for selling your used iPhone)



    No Rollover Minutes



    Visual Voicemail will not update while you are on another call



    Unless Verizon has monthly plans at half the price, forget it.

    From the Ars Technical Live Blog:

    Quote:

    Q: more on the constant data/constant voice expectations from GSM - will it be jarring on CDMA?

    Cook is stopping to think carefully on how to answer. Verizon guy is watching him carefully.

    Cook: it's all about getting it on Verizon. The customers who want it there will be willing to make these tradeoffs.



    They didn't solve the simultaneous voice-data issue. So when you are using it as a hotspot, you'll drop your internet connection when a call comes in.



    They also aren't talking about pricing plans yet... Which means either they'll be expensive, or they haven't come to any internal agreements.

    Does that mean we are now going to be inundated daily with stories about iPhone coming soon to Sprint or T-mobile? Of course it shouldn't be to hard for Sprint to provide iPhones to all 10 of their remaining customers.

    Finally the prophecy is fulfilled. And before the end of the world in 2012 too!

    How does the mobile hot spot work if I have another device tethered to my phone and I get a voice call? Does my data connection drop?
