October 4th event to be held on Apple's own campus?
On October 4th, as we reported, Apple is expected to introduce to the world the next-generation of its Apple iPhone. According to sources for All Things D, the event will be held at the company's campus in Cupertino. But what will Apple reveal? There have been a number of different possibilities discussed.

Will it be the Apple iPhone 5 with a completely new design and improved specs? Some believe such a model will feature a dual-core processor, 8MP camera, larger edge-to-edge screen and a home button that reads gestures. Others speculate that Apple will keep the design of the Apple iPhone 4 but upgrade the innards and call it the Apple iPhone 4S. And there are those who claim "inside-resources" in calling for Apple to show off both an Apple iPhone 5 with updated specs AND an Apple iPhone 4S, with the latter being a lower-cost entry-level model.

Of course, Apple has a new CEO in Tim Cook and the combination of new leadership and a home-field venue could bring a whole new fresh feeling to the event. Add in the fact that no one really has an idea what Apple is going to introduce when it comes to its touchscreen smartphone and the atmosphere is bound to be electric in Cupertino a week from Tuesday. And don't forget the speculated next-gen Apple iPod touch expected to be introduced. Like a smaller version of the Apple iPad, the new iPod Touch will have 3G connectivity provided by carriers for data, not for phone calls.

So which Apple iPhone(s) will be introduced at the event? Let us know what you think by leaving us your comments in the box below.

My theory for next iphone. I think there will be a iphone 5 with a 4 ibch display and a very small bezel. It will be on sprint and will ve 4G but not on verizon 4G. It will have an A5 inside with a 10mp shooter back 1mp front. This will include a 1650 mah battery inside and a 720p display. There will also be a iphone 4S which will be 100 dollars. Same design has the 4 but and a5 and 8mp camerea on the back. Otherwise unchanged.

completely off it wont have 4g so its easy to change from verizon to sprint. 3.7-4.0 inch screen. a5 with 8mp camera. with same resolution and lower ppi. iphone 4s with 3.7 inch screen, a5 and 5mp camera and iphone 4 design

bio, your prediction for specs for the iPhone 5 WRT 10 mp camera, 720p display and WiMax are a bit off. Try 8 mp camera with 326 ppi on a 4 inch diagonal measurement display. 720p playback on an external monitor is possible, but no 720p on the display. 10 mp camera, 720p display and LTE/WiMax may make it into the iPhone 6 (LTE/WiMax is dependent on power consumption of the 4G radios in a year).

its my guess and i am sticking with it. I do feel that if apple can include 4G in a reasonably sized device with good bat life they will do it. I dont think they can with lte but prob wimax and hspa. If they cant i dont want them to.

So.. the Galactic Empire is inviting all the journalists onto it's Death Star? Too bad Luke Skywalker AKA Android is going to launch a torpedo to blow the main reactor. Again.

In the end, the Jedi wins and the sith's weapon (Vader) Throws Sidious (Apple) down deep. because their products suck.

It appears that the Imperial Sith Troops (Apple salesmen) have mastered the Jedi Mind trick! They are causing ordinary people to purchase the iPhone. Over and over again!!

I'm starting to fed up with these kind of "Articles" with neither information nor pictures/leaks. And what's worst, still one week left.
