The popularity is peaking and why should you buy it if you want class?
It is pretty boring when tou see it all around you. Dont you get it?
I realised no matter how haters say iphone is overrated it still rules the marketshare. Just like ipod back in the days. People might hate it so much but it is the only mp3 player u see 99% of time when on bus or train

Poor apple, now when the poor people wants your phones, the people with money thinks that it is a drag.
furthermore. this is boring design and nothing can make me buy it again.
waiting for nokia to get out with their N9 or this new, whatever is called belle or what name is?
the hill is down 2012 for iphone. end of an era.
[deleted post]Then suddenly it's all about "apple controlling peoples lives?" are you like even thinking before saying what you actually said?
Why do you even care if majority of earth's population is in favor of apple. Live your life, don't mind other people's decision and make your own.
Some people don't like iphone because they don't know how to use it to full extent. Well, all i can say is when you buy a phone what you see is what you get. Never ask for something that was never there because your just making a fool out of yourself.
**cheers to apple fans out there. Don't let haters ruin your entusiasm. :))
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2011You do know your argument is as old as the Iphone itself?
It is also incorrect. Iphone is a... moreIm not arguing it's a fact, Iphone have let down all the fans. I couldn't care less about the mainstream.
If it wasn't for the mainstream following marketing ploys then this phone wouldn't exist. This isn't what the mainstream want, it's what they think they want!!!
Wheres all the exciting new features that we have never seen before???? Oh wait... It's lousy old Apple.
They havn't designed any new features for a long long time. The mainstream only want it, because the mainstream want it. They dont care about specs!!
The true Techies know the specs though: Unreliable, Shocking, Tasteless, Boring Imitation. Apple are weak.
[deleted post]"With other more advanced smartphones on the market, why would you choose apple unless you were a sheep following the crowd?"
maybe, but it's not about phones itself anymore.
I think with appstore/all the gadgets for iPhone is most advanced phone out there by far, no doubt about that, what you can do with iPhone android users or others only can dream about.
Here's few videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dD_9Fhg_pdc
Thats real deal when you use PHONE like you would never think to use, that's advanced! And there's plenty of samekind of things for iPhone/iPad in many category it's not only for musical stuff.
You know smartphone real potential is inside apps when devs are going to searh possibilities of smartphone. Not in phone itself, they really arent that different ;) or much more advanced.
there's something more...
[deleted post]You do know your argument is as old as the Iphone itself?
It is also incorrect. Iphone is a device that caters to the needs and wants (mostly 'wants') of a specific group of people. And a surprisingly large group, too.
The mainstream user.
LinuxUser, 05 Sep 2011That's right, Apple, get your preorders in. Might be a small issue if the screen is only 3.7&q... moreI sincerely hope you are talking about screen size and not something else lol!
[deleted post]Again these sheep talks, try hard, can't you really think any reason why people might want iPhone over something else? Even if the phone itself doesn't have better paper specs.
i give you little hint, the phone itself isn't everything, there's something more...
It's the same reason why iPad sells and other tablets dont!

However, this time Apple allegedly was ahead of the leak and managed to reprocure the device.
Ill try and find the article for you :)
Nokia Rules, 05 Sep 2011The N8-01 will make all the Android phones that comes out after it DOA! The SGS 3 will suffer... moreKeep on living in your dream world. Unless they come out with something unique, it is already a lost race. Knowing Nokia and theit antediluvian O/S, do not bet your last buck on it.
Anyhow, all due respects to your feelings and choice. No hard feelings.
TechnoFreak, 05 Sep 2011If you did not know, Apple products new releases have always been kept a top secret...I know, but usually some hard evidence slips through to create buzz, rather than baseless rumors. Remember the iPhone 4 found in a bar?
Duel, 05 Sep 2011"what can they add to the table that's new, or better, thats supreme to their competition... moreThis is completely true up to the point that Android users would be 'by-default' techies who just look at specs.
The most common Android user is, and more so becomes the mainstream mobile phone user, not the techy.
Techies are a very, very small margin of the world's population, and 'we' only represent a very small percentage of the marketplace. What 'we' do is pave the way for new tech and push the envelope by demanding it; and last I heard, techies are in every branch, segment, and phone brand. Not just Android :)
PLYRZR0, 05 Sep 2011what i meant to say was; that besides apple is so good and lovely and innovating and blabla, w... more"what can they add to the table that's new, or better, thats supreme to their competition atm?
maybe quadcore? single core @ 2Ghz?
otherwise the new iphone is old news on release.."
Most of apple users doesn't buy paper specs, even apple doesnt show these ghz etc. on their web site, it tells everything. Apple users buy things what they can do with that extra power. Android users are into paper specs even they hardly can benefit it (dual core), apple users don't do that :)
All what most iPhone usrs see is that everything works fast and smooth they don't need to know what ghz is or how much memory it has. They like that everything runs smooth, everything what they buy (appstore) runs smooth etc.
So if iphone 5 is samekind of update than galaxy s vs galaxy s2 it's enough. They really don't need to put anything extra to table because clearly even those new specs monsters phones can't beat iPhone 4 sells and for sure iPhone 5 is going better than iPhone 4.
Anonymous, 05 Sep 2011Apple could very well say that they can't make the release date due to unforeseen circumstance... moreNo, again, release is going to be the first or second week of October.
Unfortunately I am obliged to stick to my original source from Bloomberg, I cannot reveal internal sources at T-mobile or Deutsche Telekom. I also report this here because since today this information is public through a newssite and was not reported here yet, which I find odd.
No need to keep guessing, I can safely confirm this to you and everyone else - first or second week of October.
Have heard iphone 5 also have laser display wherein we can have virtual keypad also...
