Obvious alert! Analyst says iPhone 5 will be a "radical update"

We know that pre-CES is a bit of a down time for tech news, so analysts have little to do, but this one seems especially unnecessary to us. An analyst for Sterne Agee has gone on record with a couple statements on the iPhone 5...

the title image is just a mockup, not a real render of the potential design. we'd say it's just about a zero percent chance the iPhone 5 looks like that.

Obvious Point #6: Millions of people who are brainwashed by Apple Advertising. Taking things that other phones have already done and making it seam unique and revolutionary.

JESTER_B ----- you must be a brainwashed android fan... for thinking that Apple copied everybody else, you hate Apple so much that you dont even bother to know the whole story which is quite the opposite of what you said. Let me feel you in on a Fact; If it wasnt for Apple and their iPhone, HTC and Samsung would still make TO THIS DAY those buggy flippy phones with only a menu option and contacts button. And Google created android because they saw an increase in popularity of the iPhone and wanted to create somethin of their own, Android would not exist today if it wasn't for the iphone, FACT. Technology works in misterious ways if you didn't know, and im not saying that Apple invented the phone, no, but they started a different market, technology and so forth... it only takes a person to come up with an idea and the rest will follow with their own creation based on that idea... get it? good.

ahmm! Michael H, i think he got that, he was just saying "IF" iPhone 5 looked like that, he'd not buy it. the key word here is "IF". So stop defending it now, we all get it

I realised that too.

iPhone 3G to 3GS = Copy and Paste, Video recording, slightly better camera.

iPhone 3GS to 4 = Flash added to camera, front facing camera, slightly better camera, phone now made of glass.

iPhone 4 to 4S = slightly better camera, some talking robot thing

and reviewers always consider these "RADICAL" changes =.="

It'll just drain your battery for no reason, also it'll be stupider if you have a case on your iPhone.

We can't really go there now can we? Apple users get a little customization and we rag on it draining the battery? I love having my live wallpaper, but it drains my battery too. I think the glowing Apple is cool and with a few more sw upgrades and a bigger screen would make me an iPhone owner too.

No it doesnt look like Nokia's X-Series Model. You must be confused. This is Apple you are talking about, the X-series looks like the iPhone. I have seen the orginal drawing of the iphone 5 like 8 years ago. It was on a piece of toilet paper.
