Vodafone is giving LBM two-thousand devices to upgrade existing iPhone customers, on Friday 7th October 2011. What managers are saying is this is before any stores or networks are launching the new Apple device.

Technology is advancing so fast that the implementation of quad core processors and 2 GB RAM has become possible. It has nothing to do with the OS whatsoever. Whether it be iOS or android, if the device is slow as compared to another one, it is outdated.

What exactly did Stephane Richard say? Because claiming to have spilt the beans, yet not actually detailing what that can of beans exactly contained is not a great 'source'

I love the way people on here are quick to be abusive and accuse people of not being able to afford one as the reason they dont like it. i work in the communications industry and have owned and used many phones including HTC and iphones, personally i got rid of my iphone 4 for a htc, WHY? personnal choice. i thought the iphone 4 was horrible to hold and the 3GS was a better design, i still have and use an ipod touch as i like apples systems but as a phone i prefer the HTC. i think it always comes down to personnal choice, and all those who think its necessary to insult others and their families just dont have the mental capacity to put forward a good argument or comment on the subject they are discussing because some body didnt agree with thier opinion, now bring forth all the insults and critisisms from the minority

I wish some people could learn to spell correctly. :/

Unless the next iphone can make myself a cup of tea then I'd be happy to get it.

By the way, SGSII is rated above HTC Sensation, aside from that when you compare them, you are comparing specs as they run the same OS. Specs wise neither owners have outdated phones.
You're going to need a better argument.

Unless apple comes out with a 1.5 ghz dual core processore with the new IPS display, nfc, hdmi capability and lte it will already be outdated! Apple controls there customers like a puppet by releasing only one phone everyone once in a while and making them believe its the best. Then come out with a different colour like its something so different. There marketing is only effective because the majority of consumers are just straight up idiots when it comes to cell phone technology and apple was the first to learn how to manipulate that group.

However the trend is changing and i think apple have peaked with the iphone 4. Once everyone realizes there is no java or flash and cant do everything online like stream live feeds then bye bye apple. Slowly but surely the people will realize how badly they have been played!

The LG Prada & the original iphone were both announced in the same month...

It would take someone pretty psychic to announce a phone in the same month as the one they'd allegedly copied....

In fact the only company I've seen do anything like that was when Samsung announced the Galaxy tab 10.1. Then the ipad 2 was released & the Galaxy was rushed back off the shelves & back to the drawing board of samsungs copy & development department & hey presto a device remarkably similar to the ipad was released...

Same with all android phones really.

When the iphone came to market there were blackberry, WM 6.1, Symbian & Palm OS (although Palm was dying a death with the likes of the treo deserting that OS in favour of WM towards the end)

that was it. No android in site. & the phones that Samsung were releasing were ugly pale shadows of the superb D500 (Samsung p520 armani aside as that looked lovely - just had a poor UI).

Nowadays we're awash with iphone alike phones all boasting that they did it first.

No they didn't. Without the iphone they wouldn't even exist. It was only after the phenominal success of the original iphone that Samsung, et al decided to start releasing sleek looking phones that copied the iphone's simplicity of design rather than humungous bricks like the HTC TyTyn etc.

It's pretty cool to see that all that all the fans are willing to pay for a mobile that will be out-dated in terms or everything as soon as it hits these lovely markets.

Congratulations Apple fans.
