    Who cares!!! Its Apple!! Yet another dog and pony show from the ppl who have perfected it. They cram the same craptastic phone down the consumers throat every year. Cmon Apple! Wheres that innovation at?? Give us something NEW! Not the Iphone 3 repackaged with a diffent case.

    This becomes boring, all these incremental releases are just to keep rumors alive and draw some interest, but Apple cannot do it forever.

    "we could see not one but two new iPhones launch later this year" You dont' have to say 'not one, but two' We know that two isn't one. This isn't the slap-chop. I assume you're letting people know that Apple normally only releases one phone per year.

    I say we start taking bets... what's going to be the 'cool' feature of the 5S? Something Siri-like that's unexpected? Or maybe things other phones are starting to showcase like wireless charging or a waterproof coating?

    Or maybe it'll be boring, like a better battery life or a case that doesn't scratch from bright sunlight.

    I dunno. I can't tell the difference between the original iphone & iphone 5. If you've seen one model, you've seen them all.

    An integrated taser would be cool. Call it the iZapper, find someone you don't like, and have fun depleting your battery.

    What the Hell?! The difference in design from the iPhone 3GS to iPhone 4 was huge.

    I suppose you're right. Never did pay much attention to phones anyway.

    After having the 4s for 18 months and playing on my friend's 5 for a few hours, I think I'm going with the Galaxy SIV when I upgrade. I thought the 4s was awesome until I got an Android based tablet. Now I realize that Jelly Bean can do anything iOS can do, but with more variety and less restrictions.
