    1. I hope it does NOT have 4G, or if it does, you can disable it/turn it on and off on the fly.

      Been reading reviews from some of the first 4G phones. The same phone on 3G lasted a day and half on battery — with 4G, it only lasted 4-5 hours!! Unacceptable…

  1. RUMOR: Any news that starts with RUMOR is completely pulled out of someones ass until the TRUE news comes from Apple themselves……..if it starts with RUMOR scroll on to the next news story.

  2. The release of the Verizon iPhone 4 earlier this year does not mean that an iPhone 5 will not be released in 2011. In fact, a June release sounds reasonable. If it happens, you will hear plenty of squawking from early adopters of the Verizon iPhone 4. But that is one of the consequences of rapid product development – do we really want to go back to the old days of stretched product release cycles?

    1. Well, I’m one of those Verizon early adopters, and I’m well aware of how to tell if an electronics item is obsolete.

      If you can buy it, it is.

      So bring on the iPhone 5. I’ll get it, my wife will get the iPhone 4, and one of the kids will get her iPod touch.
