Apple site confirms iPhone 5 name (and LTE support) prior to announcement
The search goof was first found by 9to5Mac, who, we guess, are currently hitting the F5 button of their browsers every 10 seconds. Anyways, the search result has actually found the 'iPhone 5' name as part of a link to the announcement press release, which currently leads nowhere.
Additionally, using the same hi-tech method, 9to5Mac has also found evidence of the new iPod touch and iPod nano, but again, no other information is currently available. We only know that they are coming!
Well, so much for the 'new iPhone' theory, for now at least. The best thing is that all will be come clear in just a few hours. Stay tuned to PhoneArena, as we'll have a lot of interesting coverage for you!
UPDATE: Using the same method, it was also confirmed that the new iPhone 5 will feature LTE. Of course, the page itself is still unavailable, but at least we now know that it's only a matter of hours until it's officially official. Check it out here.

no wonder there's no apple users or fans in here commenting?

Apple fans let the droiders do all the commenting. We just enjoy using a great device.

Magical, revolutionary and highly-innovative (the phone) and sarcastic (me)

It would be ground breaking when iPhone would be banned by Samsung or Google in one or other way instantly after release. :D

More like earth-shattering, 'cause the lawsuit would have to have been filed when there was no official word about the device, Further, the trial would have had toave been held, jury decision reached against Apple, and the judge would have issued a sales ban order. The only way this could happen is if it happened in a parallel universe that was slightly out of sync with the universe we are in. And when the two universes came into contact with each other, the earth shattered (matter-anti-matter thang)....
Sounds like a story line for a movie, eh? Maybe an indie release using iMovie?

Edit - to have (instead of toave). PA you need to not lock up edits so quickly....

I guess people complained about the change in the naming of the iPad (from iPad# to New iPad), and so the iPhone# convention was retained.

That was the point. it was a tongue in cheek write up.

Que in HTC and SAMSUNG time for the useless apple to get banned. Yes being late to the 4G party years later means that you can pay a price. Piss on Apple and it's users...

If Steve were still alive, you would get a shout-out from him at the announcement. Unfortunately Timmy isn't into that kind of esoterica.

Maybe there will be a removable battery and a memory expansion slot.

Don't think so. If they have come up with "Lighteneing" to draw cash out of pocket of end users they wouldn't make loss by doing this. They are cash hungry ...

Big Fruity's theme song, stolen of course from The Who and its iconic hit "Won't Get Fooled Again"
Big Fruitys take: Meet the new iPhoney, same as the old iPhoney.. No you won't get fooled again.. NO NO.. You won't get fooled again... Except the fantwinks...
Big fruity can't innovate so they'd rather litigate. Enjoy your 4 inches of massive screen. I am sure NO manufacturer has NEVER offered a 4 inch screen before, let alone one housed in a rectangle with rounded corners. LMAO WOW 5 rows of icons.. HMM love the fact big fruity CONTROLS your phones, your content. Read the user agreement. Its NOT your media you buy, its Big Fruitys! You just use it!

I'm kind of surprised that they're including LTE, knowing Apple's business tactics I would have assumed that they would have conveniently excluded LTE from this model only to add it to next years and call it the iPhone 5S so that everyone would go buy it again.
