Cincinnati Bell uses both Apple iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S placeholders
Cincinnati Bell apparently believes in the rumor that Apple will deliver an iPhone 4S with slightly improved specs. The placeholder for that phone shows a 16GB model with a 3.5 inch screen, a 5MP camera and an A5 processor. The price shows up as $400 before a $300 rebate brings the price to an incorrectly posted $99.99. Of course, it all is a moot point anyway since the copy and the pictures are just placeholders, awaiting pictures of the real devices and real copy.
The fact that Cincinnati Bell shows both an Apple iPhone 5 and an Apple iPhone 4S could be a guess or a response to some information that the carrier knows about. Our earlier story about Radio Shack's inventory system featured a screenshot that showed only the Apple iPhone 5 although the photo did show that AT&T, Verizon and Sprint would be offering the device in the States. On the other hand, a web site called MacPost says that references to the Apple iPhone 4S only are found in the iTunes beta version and is tagged with an image of a CDMA iPhone 4 indicating that the design of the iPhone 4S might closely follow the current Verizon variant of the Apple iPhone 4. With no mention of the GSM model, the Apple iPhone 4S could be a dual-mode device.
We have heard so many different stories about what Apple will be announcing that whatever Tuesday brings, it will be a relief to those who have been following this process from day one.

If it does not have LTE not going to get it. I love android and apple but I am mor exited about LTE than either. I have posted my opinion atliest twenty times but I guess here is one more time. I played with the droid bionic and the Internet was twice as fast atliest compared to my droid x and iPhone 4 with those connected to my wifi. Could be alot of reasons for that but I a pretty sure LTE is that much better and I believe it's worth not getting the iPhone 5 even with the new duel core a5 chips and if it has the bigger screen if it don't have LTE. My iPhone 4 will be just fine to use and don't think it is worth the upgrade without it

Just a theory but wasn't Apple supposed to make a cheaper, plastic iPhone? Maybe that's the 4S? Then they'll have the iPhone 5. If it is, then that sounds good. Apple finally making more options. =)

The good news also is that we should be able to assume that the new Iphone 4S and 5 will work on T-Mobile 3G network. The are only 2 carriers here in the states that use the 1700 frequency band Cincinnati Bell and T-Mobile.
