Is the Apple iPhone N94 the template for the entry-level Apple iPhone 4S?
described by the Wall Street Journal as being a "tiny iPhone", did make it to the DVT stage in June putting it ahead of the N94. The N97 has had bugs in the technology that switches the phone between specific frequencies, but that probably has been fixed since then. Considering that Sony CEO Sir Howard Stringer told the Wall Street Journal back in April that his firm is providing camera modules to Apple as we reported, these shooters could be ending up on the N97 which could very well be the entry-level Apple iPhone 4S.

Ha! This is going right according to the product release playbook at Apple. Every time there was a new release of the iPhone, the month before release saw intense rumors. Check the rumor sites archives if you don't believe me. Expect September to be filled with iPhone rumors. When the phone is officially released, the market will have been sufficiently frothed and they will probably sell a million units before the first week end is out.

I did not say the churning/frothing of the market by Apple didn't work. I was posting that we are now in the hyper-rumor period and that more should be expected. There are at least 3 Apple/iPhone-related articles that have been put up on PA within the last 48 hours, and PA isn't exactly one of the larger Apple rumor sites.

yup... its a great marketing technique but apple barely needs to do anything anymore--the press does all but everything

Um, Apple is most certainly feeding the rumors. The press provides a willing partner to the churning/frothing activity as they get their eyeball count metrics headed northward. It is all very incestuous....

i don't think apple can feed that many rumors... if they were doing all of them something dud have leaked saying they were--there are way to many for them to start them all..

The press does everything except put the customer IN the store

An argument could be made that stories about supply constraints could make potential customers buy before they might have otherwise bought in fear of not being able to get the product if supplies become constrained.... :-) It is all about churning the market.

So based on the rumors maybe this is the phone that is gonna have the 3.5"-3.7" Screen. I really hope so anyway..

my grandparents, mom and dad have the iphone. they like the screen size it is right now. iphone 4in will please us phone addicts, but for the average iphone user, a 4.0-4.3 inch isnt appealing. they all make fun of my samsung focus 4in screen

Note to Apple: Do not call your phone the N97. It brings back too many bad memories of the Nokia N97.

We here at Apple would never do something that foolish as to name one of our devices like that. We have already written that note to ourselves years ago but thanks anyways.
