Apple inventory system now shows iPhone 4S
According to a tip from an anonymous source, Apple’s inventory system now has a listing for an iPhone 4S with the codename N90A that suggests they may be ready to show off two models at next week’s event.

The iPhone 4 was associated with the codename N90. The addition of the A may mean that the 4S is the incremental update that it has been rumored several times to be. When Apple released the iPhone 4 in June of 2010, they also released an 8GB version of the 3GS model as a cheaper alternative. If Apple does announce a fifth-generation model of their flagship device during their event at company headquarters, then the 4S could simply serve the same purpose that the 3GS did just last year.

We still don’t know for sure that Apple will show off two iPhone models next week, but for now at least we know that the iPhone 4S does exist. The 4S is rumored to feature the same body style as Apple’s current offering but with some improved internals such as the dual-core A5 processor. It is also believed that the 4S could have a better camera but it is possible the rumored 8 megapixel shooter could be reserved for the iPhone 5.

With only 6 more days before Apple’s “Let’s talk iPhone” event takes place, you can expect speculation to reach an all-time high. A new iPod Touch also showed up in the inventory system wearing the codename N81A. The fourth-generation of the iPod Touch sported the codename N81, suggesting that the iPod Touch may only be due for minor updates.

Even though I am not an iPhone fan at all, I am excited to see what the announce next week. Then all these iPhone 5 rumors will be done with and all the idiots I hear saying 50 different things about how the iPhone 5 will be the best phone out there for the next year will officially know it wont be.

The thing is with rumors part of them tend to be true. Not all of the rumors but part. Every rumor I've heard seems to make the iPhone 5 a cool phone but not the greatest out there. People think just because it's the iPhone its the greatest. Your so quick to defend Apple but just slow down a bit and think about it. Even if Apple releases a phone that will be the best out there it will only be so for a couple of weeks until ICS is released. Go ahead and start bitching that I am an Android fan because truth is I obviously am. With that said I have respect for the iPhone and iOS. It just really irritates me that all these people praise the iPhone because it is the most popular phone. Go ahead and start bashing and thumbing me down, I don't care. This is my opinion that with time will be proven to be on the right track.

i agree with u on that ..the iphone is just a phone that's it nothing more. they praise the phone like its a god or that you will be "coo"l if you have one..the iphone would make a great mid range android phone and that's my opinion on that . i hope apple brings out the best phone in history so these sheep can shut the hell up till the next year

Hello Facts train coming though! Android Ice Cream Sandwich is just some weeks away literally so there goes your multi-core optimization BS. Then after that the first quad-core tablets are going to come out a few weeks later, then by Jan of 2012 quad-core phones will be in your face. So YES I am so terrified. When I sleep I have nightmares of dual-core iPhones. I think I am going to have a nervous breakdown! lol It’s like Halloween, I am so spooked! lol

I see dead people, I mean dead iPhones! Booooooo!

It's really hard to get through your post, but a question. Do you have a dual core phone?


Quad cores are coming in 2012 and I'm sure iPhone will have a quad core then as well.

If you can't tell I am a man, then I would guess what I just stated before has happened to you quite frequently huh? Hey I don’t judge, maybe you like that & that is fine with me! I don’t swing that way so let me just say no thank you! Sounds like you are trying to pick me up!

bucky that is so silly, it's like saying a Toyota is as fast as a Ferrari! Why did you GET a Samsung Galaxy S II if it's FINALLY as fast as the non multitasking, weak OS running iPhone 4? Imagine how fast the Samsung Galaxy S II would be if it was running the inferior iOS 4. Imagine the iPhone 4 running Android Gingerbread 2.3.5, you can't because the iPhone 4 can't do it! lol The Samsung Galaxy S II is the planets fastest phone & it multitasks all the time! Very, very silly comment bucky!

acording to my Sponge Bob crystal ball by Jan 2012 ICS will be available in one phone out of 1000..most will still trying to finish with Froyo... quadcore tablets.. will lag so much... that people will dump them and wait for the ipad3..... ICS..lol... dude get Gingerbread first..

gallitoking I have Android Gingerbread for months now, HTC is great with updates. Don't you know that Sponge Bob rocks an underwater Android Gingerbread phone? Because Sponge Bob is cool. Maybe the uptight Squidward Q. Tentacles has an iPhone 4 because you know iSheeps are sad. :-(

Well gallitoking you are partially right. It's a mixture of both, in Europe the Samsung phones all were updated but here in the U.S. the carriers have a lot to say on the subject matter. HTC always seems to get the carriers blessing here in the U.S. first, don't know why, but Samsung does have a good update reputation outside of the U.S. as does HTC. So I guess we are both right!

Let's be honest, the iPhone will not die as fans like taco, ayephoner iKing and others, will buy it and every following model no matter what because it is what they like. And rather then simply saying I don't care if it doesn't have dual core, a 4" screen, open OS, widgets, customization, it is what I like, they will just try to yell and scream how it is the best and the rest of us need to accept it and drink the kool aid as well.

ok lets be honest mr 8ball.... Android will keep sending half baked updates unless the consumer demand to upgrade all the phones at once. not one....... by one....... demand to keep Android open but at least cut down on all the Porn apps that besides a boner . it gives you a virus.... and that please slow down so Android can catch up with Android... to use quality over quantity... and please no more dessert names... as is hard to create a decent app when the Android version is called Ice cream Sandwich

SAE.. man.. there are 6 at the most dual core phones... out of 1000 variations of android.. hmmmm and already thinking about quad core... dont get ahead of yourself. and sent a letter to Google to hurry and update ALL android phones to Gingerbread... before ICS arrives...

117. box (unregistered)


Only 6? (correct me if I'm wrong, but.....)
LG Thrill, Motorola Atrix, Samsung Galaxy S2 (and all variants, of which there are at least 4 currently available), HTC Sensation (and variants, ie. Sensation 4G for T-Mobile vs Sensation for Europe), HTC MyTouch4G, MyTouch4G Slide, Samsung Galaxy S 4G, LG G2X aka Optimus2X, HTC Evo 3D, Motorola Photon, Droid Charge, Droid Bionic, HTC ThunderBolt, LG Revolution, upcoming HTC Amaze, upcoming Motorola Atrix2, plus whatever the discount carriers have... and there's even more variants in Europe, and even more in Asia, like the Fujis & Huawei and such.
While I'll grant you that dual-core isn't that spectacular, just as it is when on a computer, there is definitely some performance improvements, and at increasingly smaller costs in term of power, heat, and battery life. The iPhone4 has been overpriced for almost half a year: it should be priced the same as a Blackberry Torch 4G 9810 ($49.99 with contract) or a mid-level Android or Windows phone, based on specs, capability, and "future proofing". I'd only spend $200 on a 2-year contract phone if it were cutting-edge and absolutely top-tier, otherwise it's best just to buy the phone outright and save the contract for a phone that's outside of my budget

On droid you can install hello kitty wall papers and over clock all day. That's way more useful than using your phone to complete actual tasks.

If you are on your phone strictly to kill boredom, you need a hobby, seriously...working out, reading, competitive eating...anything other than sitting on your phone. Your phone is to temporarily kill boredom with all those games, not say, "See how much of a slacker my phone allows me to be!!"
