    nothing "new" about the newest iphone. most of today's newest phones are already practicing what apple has yet to implement.

    this will just give reason to the already dedicated crowd to continue on their current path. ;)

    If thats the new look of the 4G they did a GREAT job.

    Looks very nice. I'm impressed.

    Removable battery is definitely a plus if that happens.

    This statement is definitely interesting in regards to an early April release

    "according to an unnamed KT executive, is because the carrier and Apple have reached a broad consensus to introduce the advanced models as early as possible”

    WOW, they waited THIS LONG??? Surprising considering how fast the 3 previous versions were out.... Sadly you know most of the Apple Fan Boys will be lined up around the corner.... I know too many of them that have had a LEAST 2 versions already. Though at least this time Apple is actually delivering NEW things instead of just adding things that should have been included on the previous model (as in the case of the last 2 'updated' phones).

    the "4g" is a nice phone, but misleading if it doesn't actually support 4g...

    Was it misleading when their second gen iPhone was called the "2G" but didn't support 2G internet? I don't find that confusing at all.

    As for the dual core processor, will that be the first phone to have one?

    Seems like akick in the face to everyone who went out and bought a 3gs, but of course, that's how the phone business is, adn that is if this is a legit article.

    All that is purly speculation and a photoshop job. I am pretty confident that there will be no removable battery on the iPhone ever. Apple is doing away with all their removable batteries on everything, why would they add one to something that has never had one?

    because their customer base has been complaining about it for a LOOOONG time.

    It would be a good move to add a replaceable battery. It's a phone first.

    Will they? Nobody knows except them.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did though.

    How does the ARM Cortex A9 CPU compare to the droid chip, or the Snapdragon?

    I am new to all this, the droid is my first smartphone. So be easy on me. lol

    That looks really nice. JUst have to wait and see but I don't see myself moving from the Droid for an iPhone even though it would play nice with my Mac.

    And that would surprise you why?? They released 3 versions of the phone within a year and half (give or take). Each version wasn't really anything 'new or great' it was just the addition of services that SHOULD HAVE been on the previous phone (especially for the price, the early Gs were ridiculously expensive for what little they offered, but then I think that is part of Apple's Mission Statement).

    Come on, they released the first phone with NO camera and NO 3G support, no copy/cut one a phone with a touch screen.... seriously... It's OBVIOUS they do not really care about kicking their customers in the face. Actually they seam to do it on purpose (at least with the iPhone).

    I have to agree with you, Apple does seem to be kicking their customers in the face when it comes to the iPhone. Even BlackBerry phones had more to offer than the iPhone, except for the browser. Although, everyone has been complaining about wanting the removal battery. Nobody knows what Apple is going to do except for them.
