True. but then again, they're just counter attacking Samsung by copying their devices this time.

Yup. It is probably like a SGS2. I think apple patented this long before SGS2. SGS3 would be buttonless and sexier than that piece of crapple iphone.

Wait! I get it now! He's talking about how Apple tries to patent any small device that you play with in the palm of your hand! That's why he brought up all the penis stuff!

they really do get people pumped.

i've always been excited for their keynotes, but i've never been this excited about the keynote announcement.

they should let us know something next week or the week after. but, the keynote wont be until the end of sept.

Really, it was the size of the earpiece-cutout that gave away the front-facing camera? I would of thought that since there was one on the iPhone 4 there would also be one on the iPhone 5, but I guess my logic doesn't... uh... necessarily... follow.........

"Take it with a pinch of salt and due precautions, but this certainly sounds exciting - imagine the possibilities coming with a touch-enabled home key!"

Is this all it takes to arouse an Iphone fan.. Wow

I personally didn't like the push-in home button. It wears out way too fast. Capacitive will make the device easier and less hardware teardown. Constantly pushing that button in would give me carpal tunnel lol.

Article is full of fandroid bashers as usual. Sounds like you're all crying over spilled milk. Why are you all so jealous of the iPhone?

I'm not sure why Android fans are hoping that the next iPhone is gonna suck. I personally hope it's the best phone ever built. That way, Android handset-makers will up their game and churn out even better phones, so Apple will feel uneasy and make an even better iPhone 6, and so on. This happened with the iPhone last year. Every iPhone through the iPhone 3gs was basically the same thing because Apple pretty much controlled the American smart phone market, and was gaining a lot of ground on Symbian overseas. After the Droid and other successful Android phones launched in late 2009, Apple went "oh sh*t", put their noses to the grindstone, and came out with a phone that actually had new features to compete with Android (front-facing camera, high-res display, thinner design, camera flash, etc.)
