    So now we know the shape and the material - how dull. I was hoping for a nice surprise. Actually, now that I have seen Photos and video of the Nokia Swipe I was kinda hoping for something like that.

    How quickly can wireless charging go from almost empty to full? With a cable it is less than an hour give or take, on an iPhone.

    and the iP4 will be even better with iOS 5 and iCloud!



    well there are high probabilities that the new iPhone 5 will:



    - be a combined CDMA/GSM world phone (that can be unlocked post-contract?).

    - support some version of LTE etc.

    - have an even better 8 megapixel camera.

    - have the latest even faster A5 processor chip.



    would that be enuff to get you to upgrade?



    and there is a real possibility it will also:



    - add an NFC chip.

    - have a bit larger screen.



    would that tip the scale for you to upgrade?



    but most of all, with the "let's talk" Apple hype of next week's event, it is certain Apple is going to launch some new Voice UI technology - "Assistant" (perhaps even basic "artificial intelligence"?). and reportedly that requires the A5 chip plus more RAM, so will only work on the iP5 (and iPad 2?).



    would that be an offer you can't refuse?

    No not even close. It would have to either make my life easier and less complicated or make me look 20 years younger.

    if having my voice print using spoken commands would replace all those damn text passwords, which i often can't remember because of the varying pw rules for different sites, that would make my life a hell of a lot easier.

    We're sorry we did not get that, please repeat your password. We're sorry did you say mfuker29? That is not a valid entry.

    one of the letters has to be capitalized.



    but seriously, there would be no more pw's at all. your voice print itself giving any command is it.

    i wuz thinking of iOS apps using the new "Assistant" API's. nearly all the websites i use that require log in also have their own iOS apps with web/cloud backends nowadays. and of course the PW i have to enter the most often by far is iTunes/App Store.

    Noooo. I was hoping it didn't have the teardrop design. The buttons are a pain to use on the iPod touch 4th gen. Hopefully it'll be like the 3GS (not so bad).

    If these cases are accurate there's no question now, the iPhone 5 not only looks like a mini-iPad 2 but it has a larger screen. Why is this not the headline?



    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TU7iC...layer_embedded



    That would appear to be a 4" display.



    And now we have a clear distinction between the high end iPhone 5 (multicore, bigger display, thinner and possibly weighs less) vs the 'low end' iPhone 4s (rebranded iPhone 4) with it's single core, smaller display, greater thickness and weight. Both run the universe of apps but only one of them demands a premium.



    I'm curious to know now what they did to the screen resolution on the 5. Since it is a bigger display, did they up the pixels to match the ipad, 1024x768? Or did they just lower the density. I would bet they're trying to match the ipad resolution, it would give them something else to brag about.



    That also begs the question, could they have finally changed the aspect ratio on the iPhone 5 from 3:2 to 4:3?



    iPhone 4s, single model, $99?



    People will now know with relative certainty that if you can wait 2 years after Apple introduces a new phone you can get the current premium model in an 's' configuration for $99. iPhone 5s for $99 in 2013 everyone.

    I find the iPod Touch 4 slanted edges hard to use - at least without getting a good grip on it with two hands. The flat edge to the iPhone 4 is much better. Even plugging in a dock connector on the iPod just feels wrong with the angle. and it cannot stand on its edge for hands free video conferencing.

    When ATI leaked information it was (if I remember correctly) a semi-official statement from the company itself. This appears to be a photograph of a screen which could have been taken by anyone with access into their database. Will Apple be unhappy? Sure. But I don't expect them to take any action because of one (possible) employee.



    In any case, I hope the iP5 is everything it is being hyped as ... my 3GS is ready for retirement.

    I completely agree with this. Good bye 3Gs <fingers crossed>.

    Wow. I'm panting for the iPhone 5 but - that Nokia Swipe is nice looking. I like the edges (particularly the round sides but flat top & bottom), I like the option of colors. Interesting...
