a screen protector looks like a phone? I can no longer take you serious

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.

Personal attacks are against forum rules

Who cares, exactly? It's an internet forum, not a session of congress or a corporate meeting...
13. Commentator (Posts: 3645; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
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!

This is insane! Apple, it's about time to anounce the next Keynote.
Probably it will be next week, what do you think guys?

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

It's like a gathering of most naive people on the planet - apple fan boys.

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?
25. Commentator (Posts: 3645; Member since: 16 Aug 2011)
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.)

Man this phone has to be the best kept secret in the history of products. Almost any highly anticipated product or device would have been leaked by now. It is unbelievable how apple have been able to keep this thing hidden. Maybe music labels need to pay steve jobs to train them how to keep their cds from getting leaked.

That is it I've given in....Between the onslaught of taco, miz gemini iKing and gallito.....
AND the awesome sight of this screen protector, I'm giving up on my anti-apple ban and will be buying an iPhone 5.

i know its all rumours but if the rumours are true then the iphone 5 is catching up to the gs2 and other dual core android phones...iphone 5 bigger screen-android got,slimmer-android got,dual core-android got etc etc...for me to consider the iphone 5 it will have to surpass my gs2 but i doubt it and i will be just as happy with my iphone 4 with ios5.

Ahahahaha! Dude, you sure are high if you wanna dump iOS for Android, buuut human stupidity is endless, they say :)

I don't really have any feelings either way for Apple or Android or any other mobile OS but it seems to me that Apple are just playing catch up now, and as they only currently release one mobile phone a year (or less) they may need to consider changing their business model as the technology is moving way faster than this. They need to keep every under wraps as they need to launch one hell of an innovative product for it to be a market leader for a year..
Maybe the true competition will come between Windows Mango and Android. Maybe Apple will start launching a bigger range of phones - other manufacturers have multiple handsets in the market so surely Apple could do that too.

Well, I typed something here before and entered it, but then I decided it wasn't what I wanted to say. Seeing as I can only edit my post and not delete it entirely, I guess I'll just fill this in with whatever comes to mind. La de da de da. Ho de hum. De derp de derp de tweedely tum te derr...
