Clever marketing it's probably the main reason why they released 4s October

So I'll say the same u said “pls stop posting this unintelligent undesirable comments"

Me or u ?! , my question was very SIMPLE name one phone just one better than the iPhone (Not in Camera like me said , cuz I have Sony 13.1 MP camera so I don't care even if the iPhone 5 won't have a camera ) , I think ur answer will be -MANY PHONES OUT THERE- , that's not enough, name one JUST ONE and compare pls I beg u pls !
With the new iOS 4.3 software, iPhone is just running on top of any other phone. I work at a phone retailer and people keep asking when the 'iPhone 5' is coming out and I keep saying 'not this year, I'm pretty sure they will just bring out the white iphone' so I'm so glad that I was right the whole time!
AnonD-4045, 16 Mar 2011The white version is always a more nicer version but it doesnt stop anyone with a black versio... morei personally dont think the iPhone will compete with the n8 anytime soon well no camera wise lol
i think a 5mp camera on a mobile device is more than adequate now an improved lense would be very nice
iPhone Freak, 16 Mar 2011I don't know what's ur problem with iPhones ??? but if u see better phones out there tell me o... morethey don't have problem with iphones - they are an impartial website (mostly). But the point is that
1)there are comparable phones out there for the money (not the HD2, i agree)
and 2)it seems that at the point that the iphone 4 sales will drop the most, ie - just before the announcement of the iphone 5, that they announce the white iphone 4. It seems like a marketing ploy to boost sales to me, and thats probably because it is.
So please think about what you're saying ybefore you make a remarkably uninteligent comment.
iPhone Freak, 16 Mar 2011I don't know what's ur problem with iPhones ??? but if u see better phones out there tell me o... moreWell, I was the one indicating that "better" is not a good choice of word, I was just saying, and I quote: "Purely hardware-wise, there's plenty of top-notch phones". I never said this phone is worse than that phone, so don't freak on me (I did leave the words of the person I quoted in my post, which might give rise to some confusion).
Anyway, my point is: whatever Apple brings to the market whenever, it'll sell. And not just because of high-end hardware, because face it: the iPhone 4 is not the only phone with specs like it has. White or black, I can't justify a 600+ hole in my wallet when there's cheaper alternatives. Brand name and ease of use isn't worth it to me. Allow me to repeat that - TO ME.

P.S I'm not in America) so name one any phone ?????!!!!
The white version is always a more nicer version but it doesnt stop anyone with a black version painting it! waiting a whole year though? what were they thinking! If they going to wait a whole year they might as well do like the ipods and bring out a rainbow range of colours for the consumer. After all, they do pay between £300 and £750 for their iphone and contracts too!
Perhaps Apple are planning for the white iphone 4 to have a higher speced memory e.g 64gb/128gb and or better reception.( if so perhaps that would involve hardware updates which may in turn prevent jailbreaks)
Im hoping Apple concentrates on giving reliable high end hardware ( the camera is awful compared to the nokia n8 as an example) and a phone that doesnt drop calls (like mine does!) The only reason I keep mine is the apps. Really looking forward to the spec of the iphone 5 however I hope it isnt anywhere near as disappointing as a the ipad 2.
if this is true then why dont we see it on apple's website? just like the ipad 2, it was posted on their website weeks before mentionning the date of release.
hahahaha at the guy whp said they will not make bigger screen because all the accessories are made for the current screen size. If here is one thing that is clear, apple do NOT care about their customers and never take that sort of thing into consideration. They love dreaming up miniscule changes to a design that are just enough to warrant their customer have to buy a whole new line of accessories. just look at the lack of backwards compatibility between their computer cables and chargers for iPods and phones - no cross compatibility despite the fact that they are the exact same port....
hmm the problem is with apple releasing this just before the iphone 5 comes out, has created a problem most people now have just stuck with getting the iphone 4 in black.. or waiting for the 5 to come out.. but i can garentee as soon as we get it in store people will be lineing up like last time... But i think they would have lost more sales like that tbh..
