    Kind of odd that the headphone jack is located at the bottom but Apple knows what it's doing

    Apple is moving the headphone jack to the bottom as the real estate on the bottom has now been freed up with the new (is this the right name?) pin plug in (yes we will all need a new jack, get over it). Heard this point being made on a podcast "The Talk Show":

    I don't know why people keep calling it iPhone 5 when this technically would be the 6th generation. I bet Apple is just going to call this "iPhone" just like what they did for the 3rd generation iPad

    Sooner or later they are going to have to give up the numerical designation. New model every 18 months and by 2022 we have iPhone 10? Sounds stupid. I agree, move it to iPhone and leave it at that, some car companies are guilty of this as well. I cannot get over the 13 or more different model numbers on the BMW 3 series alone.

    "iPhone V" perhaps?

    Plan on picking up 3 of these on a new Rogers family plan (Currently on Telus). As someone who's never owned an apple product, or been part of the hype... how does one order iPhones through Rogers? Does the website start selling them the same minute the Apple stores do, and I just have to get lucky, or how do I go about getting them?

    You wait in a giant line of hippies and get spat on by android users while you wait for that sweet high of getting to open that Apple packaging. No different than heroine really, and then in 12 months you do it all over again.

    In all seriousness though from what I remember with Fido it's first come first serve at the little kiosks and they have very random drops. Expect a few weeks or months before you can get all 3.

    He is trying to be of the people. He too must walk among us. LOL

    I too have an old ass, cracked back, slow as an automatic Geo iPhone 3s. Would not give Rogers the satisfaction of getting more of my money. Telus please take my money today!!!!

    I don't plan on upgrading either, this one just doesn't look as refine IMO.

    Gizmodo is saying they will drop the numeric naming convention:

    BUT everyone and their mom will still call it the iPhone 5.

    I'm upgrading when it comes out. I'm out of memory on my 32GB iPhone 4 for the past year, and was contemplating on going with the 4S 64GB, but at this rate, might as well wait for the "5".

    The iPhone is slow as balls when you're down to 1GB free memory.

    I have only 32GB on my iPhone, it is not nearly enough for my day to day use so I need to haul along my iPod. I would like to see the new iPhone have a MiniDrive like this one for laptops on offer at Kickstarter:

    meh.

    Hates it that they are shrinking the port yet not adopting Micro-USB standard.

    Apple has become the next Sony and I hope it will have the same fate soon.

    I highly doubt apple will go with a micro USB charger port for the iPhone.. That looks to be just a china knock off...

    Can't make money off proprietary white Micro-USB cables.
    I hate Apple for doing this too.
