    Default next generation iphone to be unveiled october 4 (official)

    http://www.cnn.com/2011/09/21/tech/m...html?hpt=hp_t2



    (CNN) -- Apple will unveil its next-generation iPhone at an event on Tuesday, October 4, according to a report on AllThingsD, a Wall Street Journal blog network.
    The phone will be available to consumers "within a few weeks" of that announcement, the publication says, citing unnamed sources. CNN has not confirmed this news and AllThingsD acknowledges the date could change.


    The smartphone likely will be called the iPhone 5 or the iPhone 4S, according to the common wisdom on tech blogs. A version of the phone was reportedly found in a San Francisco bar earlier this summer, according to the tech site CNET, but few details about the phone's hardware are certain. AllThingsD also expects Tim Cook, Apple's new CEO, to handle most of the announcement. Cook took over leadership of the much-scrutinized tech company after its iconic co-founder, Steve Jobs, stepped down from the post after going on medical leave.


    "The pressure will be on Cook to turn in a good performance at the event," writes John Paczkowski, "especially after what has so far been a very smooth leadership transition at Apple." The blog TechCrunch agrees: "Apple's future likely hinges more on his on-stage presence than just a piece of hardware."

    aldous huxley was right.
    I dont buy the whole humanity thing, I dont believe in my species. I dont believe in my country. I dont believe in religion. I dont believe in government. I dont believe in big business. I think its a game, a racket, a con. I enjoy not caring because it gives me a detachment, a separation. I see alot of people into politics who believe that 'Oh there's hope, only if we do this'. I dont believe that either.

    Apparently Sprint is supposed to be the first provider to receive the new iPhone. That's pretty lame for existing ATT and Verizon customers.

    4g is a myth to begin with

    I think the percentage of consumers that actually achieve the advertised speeds "4g" is capable of is REAL low. 4g is just a speed measurement of mobile data, and these phone companies are promoting a concept that the hardware simply can't support. just not enough bandwidth.

    who cares if I'm not getting the 100mb download speeds that comes from true 4g?

    I'm getting 10-20mb, and thats a hell lot better then the 2-3mb on 3g.

    The server he is testing with is hosted by comcast.


    edit: also unless they raise the screen size to at least 4", then fuck that bullshit 3.5. After owning an epic touch 4g with 4.65 inch screen, there is no way in hell id go back to a 3.5

    What kind of download speeds do you expect with 4g?

    Eh, data plans cost too much, it's not worth it to me right now.

    and btw, why fuck with iPhone? Every other smart phone out there has comparable features, if not all of the features an iPhone supports and then some... like some features that are redefining smart phone usage.

    I wouldn't know... I've never owned a smart phone or had a data plan before, I had a blackberry like 5 years ago to read email via custom domain smtp, but I gave up on that idea cause my emails were never seriously important that couldn't be just be texted to my phone's texting plan vian innate email address/alias or via forwarding so it didn't make sense to own a data plan that way and so I canceled the plan after like 2 days and got a flip phone with unlimited texting that I've had ever since.... and I still only text like 5 people.

    I know that whole texting shit is for girls anyways... I've seen some girls send/receive like 10,000 texts a month. That's insane. That means you're addicted to drama I believe.

    I'd love to have a HTC Evo with the what dual core processor for a phone lol? That shit looks baller.... but at the same time I got this iPod Touch for free which does everything I need to... why would I buy something for like $500 just to go a little bit faster?

    Idk... I definitly have read the smart phone reviews on youtube etc. and want to get a smart phone, but still I think I'll wait a few years until smart phones become common usage and the price goes down as well as data plans (4g) go down in price.

    Technology often causes problems in my life. I'd probably get addicted to texting/surfing the internet while pooping if I got a smart phone.

    lol I know that 4G/LTE isn't even what it really is yet but what are you talking about with not getting speeds? the minimum I get down is 12 mbps in the suburbs.

    use a 4G phone on vzw for a week and you will never want to use 3G again



    and all I have to say is
