    [FONT=&quot]After very strong indications from usually accurate sources last week and this week, Apple has finally made it all official by issuing an invitation to journalists for an event to be held on October 4, as predicted yesterday, at its Cupertino, California headquarters, starting at 10:00 am PT. And just in case anyone is in any doubt as to what this event might be about, The Loop actually has a picture of the invitation, which features four app icons, three of which represent the date, time and location, and the fourth of which shows the phone icon! And if you still haven’t got it after that rather big clue, and the months of feverish speculation, then underneath the icons we have just one teasing little sentence: “Let’s talk iPhone.” So there we have it! Interesting that it doesn’t say iPhone 5, just “iPhone”. That might not mean anything of course, simply that Apple doesn’t want to give anything else away until the big reveal on October 4.[/FONT]

    Ok, lets play guess what each pictures means!

    We all will agree on the Date.

    We all will agree on the Time.

    We all will agree on the Place.

    But the 1 on the phone.....

    I am locking in my answer now. One iPhone to be announced. iPhone 4s. I stated it back in May and I am going to stick with it.

    This made it on to the news of my local radio station today.

    I don't think there will be two phones. If its a 4GS then I think we will see an iPhone 5 some time next year (about the same time the 4 was released on verzion). If its the iPhone 5 then I can't see there being a 4GS...

    I was wondering about that 1 on the phone icon too skull. I'm gonna lock in with iPhone 5 as my answer. It makes more sense and if most of the rumors stay true I think it'll be too advanced to just be a better 4. iPhone 5 people! Cross your fingers til Tuesday!

    I agree. I'm already thinking about switching carriers. I hope it's worth it.

    I'm also thinking maybe, the phone icon with the number 1, could mean one message. One important subject regarding two iphones. Obviously, when I first saw the invite, I read into it being only one phone - the 4S most probable. But that icon references to messages. Anyway, I see it both ways. I can't wait. It better look cool.

    I will go with the iPhone 5 as well. They are long over due for a new phone and with all the android competition out there it has to be something spectacular! I don't think Apple will disappoint! I don't rule out the possibility of two phones either. It would be a VERY smart move on Apple's part IMO.

    I really hope it means "1 message" regarding both iPhone 5 and 4S. If there were 3 there, it would have been obvious - 1 - iphone, 2- ipad 3, 3 - nano's/itouch.

    I don't want to read into it anymore - just driving me crazy. Just glad to know we have 1 week left to see what this new iPhone looks like.

    ET needs to iPhone Home.

    I don't think there will be a new iPhone. Think about it- they've only just got round to releasing the White iPhone 4. Look how long it took them to sort that out. They wont stop production of that just yet, so it makes sense to tweak it and call it a 4S or something.
    I cant see them just bringing out an all new model. If they do, i suspect the 4 will run alongside it, like the 3GS currently does.
