I think this one is just sort of a placeholder to get them by for another year before they come out with a new phone with major upgrades. The current one is really good, sure there's some things that could be better but there's no perfect phone and there never will be, for every nitpick you could make about the iPhone you could make something about every Android on the market as well.

I think more than anything this is just to appease the people that have to have a brand new apple device each year. There wasn't really much they needed to upgrade right now. The thing constantly mentioned is the camera, which it might not be what some others have but the 4 still takes really good pictures, if you can't get decent pictures out of it you probably can't take pictures regardless of how many mp your camera has. They're probably just letting 4g get a wider coverage area before they go all in on that but by next year I'd imagine they pump out a new phone that utilizes it.

Releasing a new phone now is more about just giving people the new device than trying to blow people away with something new. The "what'll be on the next phone" stuff started shortly after the 4 was released and I'd imagine that'll just continue. Even though this one probably won't have a ton of upgrades they'll still sell a bunch of them and then next year they can roll out a brand new phone that has major upgrades & 4G and people will forget this one ever happened.

I got a spam-text about winning an Iphone 5 to try out. Do spam texts now exist? Its kind of annoying.

You're not worth the $2.99 and creative juices, and by creative juices, I mean myspace nude pose in card form.

I know and I really hate to come off so fanboy serious here, but what exactly is "new" with this new iOS5? Most of it, if not all is taken directly from Android and other sources.

Especially with this icloud service. It's not new, and it's most certainly not revolutionary.

Yea, the advanced graphics are awesome, but this event really hasn't been anything to write home about. I'm actually shocked so far, as it doesn't feel up to Apple's usual bravado.

I will be upgrading anyway, solely because I can't take the effing reception problems with the 3GS anymore.

The camera is a huge upgrade. If it's as fast as 4g on 3g, it will probably be my next purchase because it's way cheaper.

My 3GS still works fairly well, other than battery life, I think I'll wait for the next iPhone. I'll do all the cool iOS stuff on my iPad 2

4S is cool and all, and Siri looks neat, so far, I have no reason to switch from my 4.

Wow, the 4 is now 99. The 3GS is free with a new contract or 49 bucks with existing one.

No 5 at all. 4S goes to Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint. Looks like I don't have to update yet.

I dunno why everyone was expecting an iPhone 5 when apple has been on 2 year refresh cycles.
