If you don't have an iPhone - you are not limited to a single proprietary app store. You can change and control your device however you like. And you can also customize it endlessly. You aren't locked in a virtual prison and you lose the privilege to pay twice as much for half as much.

If you don't have an iPhone - you don't have an iPhone.

What are your expectations?

The new iPhone will have an A5X processor - dual core CPU and quad core graphics (Quad core CPUs are commonplace now)

4.1" screen with 1154x640 resolution (4.3 HD 720P screens are the standard now)

1GB of Ram (Same)

iOS 6 (LOL)

12MP camera (probably) (Camera will probably be slightly better than many other smart-phones - but that's about it)

A new dock connector (WOW OMG111)

*maybe* something similar to SGS3 smart-stay (exists as stand-alone app on Android)

NFC + iWallet (exists since Nexus S - 16\12 2010(!!!))

Did I say it's going to be a bad phone? No. iPhones aren't bad phones. They just can't be compared to top Android phones.

I'm just saying that if the iFans were expecting something so epic and revolutionary it would cure cancer (like they always - always(!) do) - they better calm down lol. :)

Processor- agree, but, since iOS is so limited, it will naturally preform faster than most comparable processors on android.

Screen- I think more like 4.0 and maybe a slightly different resolution. High-quality retina display with a PPI around the same 330.

Ram- correct, not much use for it on iOS without "true, true" multitasking

iOS6- of course, but hey, its an upgrade from 5

Camera- I think most other cell phones should step it up in this catagory. For a regular sized smartphone camera (aka not giant prueview), the 4S is still one of the best out there... only the One series and a few others really beat it.

New dock connector for smaller size

Smaller bezel (top/bottom)

NOT the ugly back shown the the 3rd picture (Apple wouldn't do that)

I really don't find NFC/iWallet useful.

Sales pitch- "The 4.0" screen on the iPhone is absolutly revolutionary."

Are they making the back look like the front? Is it just going to be blatantly obvious about their two-faced nature now?

Yes! We all need more glass on our phones.

I don't think Apple should produce a phone with a screen that is bigger than 3.5". This is all they know since the first iFragile-phone. And we wouldn't want them to be compared to Android now would we? Or does Apple have a patent on 3.5-5.3" screen sizes already?

I'd be shocked if this is the final design. It's butt ugly. The two tones look cheap and not as minimal and beautiful as it should.
