    Why? The iPhone 3g follow-on was the 3gs, so the 4s wasn't the first time an upgrade appended an s to a previous model. The article indicates the iPhone 5 is under test.

    lol Right, however the next iPhone will be the 6th iPhone, not the 5th. Leaving the 4s to be number 5. The iPhone 4 was called that because it was 4th Gen, not 4g. IPhone 3g was only called that because it was.

    Only bloggers are calling it iPhone 5 because they can't count. That and because of the hype around what they presumed to be the "iPhone 5" which was the 4s.

    Still doesn't address that the article is about the upcoming iPhone 5, expected to be quad core. You did read the article?

    I have to say that from my limited experience with a dual core phone, the ability to take a rapid succession of pictures is amazing. I like where apple goes with this, especially since that is one area iPhones (IMO) leave Android behind. I guess play up your strengths... Steve jobs got that part right always. I know there will be more that quad cores offer, but that is a great place to start.

    I don't think applying your logic to Apple's numbering convention makes much sense. They never had a rule saying the number corresponded to the number of unique versions. Clearly the iPhone 3G was not the third iPhone (it was the second) but they used 3G to tout the 3G capability of the phone.

    The next iPhone could be called anything. iPhone5 is as good a name as any other before its official release. Kinda like how we called the Galaxy Nexus the Nexus Prime before it was officially named.

    Except that it won't be the 5th iPhone, it will be the 6th.

    Handsets with Krait and OMAP5 are expected to be available this year. Both should be much faster per clock and hold a clockspeed advantage as well, over quad-core A9's. I think Android manufacturer's will continue to hold the pole position for performance in the high end market, unless Apple resumes licensing their SOC again.

    Apple has never tried to hold benchmarks in hardware specs if you look at their whole product line. Sure you can buy their products with high end hardware, but if you compare 2 similarly equipped computers, 1 mac and 1 Windows machine, the windows machine typically doesn't perform as well as the Mac in testing. Don't get too caught up in the numbers since it doesn't necessarily paint the whole picture.

    ICS adds the instant pic to Android. you press the button and it snaps the picture instantly like using an analog camera.. better than most digital camera these days which still have a half a second of lag time

    Why are we quibbling over semantics? If someone says the iPhone 5 has XYZ, no one in the world thinks you're talking about the 4S.

    The lag time is required on most cameras to autofocus. In a fully manual and mechanical SLR, you'd have to manually focus before you press the shutter; otherwise you're not guaranteed a sharp picture.

    If ICS is touting zero shutter lag, my guess is that you have to make sure the camera is in focus. Android (or some custom ROMs including manufacturer overlays) allow you to tap on the screen where you want to focus. There is definitely time required to focus, typically 1 second. After that, there is no shutter lag.

    So in the end, don't expect the ability to whip out your phone and press a shutter button and expect a sharp picture. The total time it will take to take a picture will still be the same, but you're just shifting the delay to manual focus, rather than autofocus after the shutter is pressed.

    This is pretty fundamental stuff, even for high-end dSLRs.

    Not quibbling, it just makes sense. If you say iPhone 2, nobody thinks of the iPhone 3G, but that doesn't change the fact that the next one will be the 6th iPhone. Apple could very well decide to call the next phone the 5, and I don't really care. I just see where the other guy was coming from, and didn't think novox's "logic" made sense.

    Regardless of what number iPhone it is, as long as everyone understands what 'iPhone5' refers to, I don't see why we have to point out how wrong that name is simply because the next phone is the 6th Apple phone. Like I said earlier, Apple never followed a rule consistently where the name matched the number.

    Let's get off this track please.

    Exactly! I think it's childish to worry about such things. It's just a name, an identifying word or number, a label... It doesn't matter what Apple calls the next iPhone, they could call it "Tasmanian Devil' for all I care. As long as people know that "Tasmanian Devil' is the newest version to date that's all that really matters. Whatever they call it I'm sure that some people will whine about it, while others will be raving about it :)

    They will definitely whine about it if Apple decides to call the next gen iPhone, 'Tasmanian Devil' ;)
