    iPhone 5 may have a projected keyboard that you could use and type on any surface you may like to type on.

    Well projected keyboard is I think a long time rumor that exists in the iPhone world that the iPhone will once turn to the use of keyboard using a hologram type of keyboard. i mean with the help of rays a virtual keyboard will be made on any given surface and we will touch the buttons on that virtual keyboard and the keyboard will be image sensitive that will pick the area where we touched the keyboard and use it as an input.
    but I dont think iphone 5 will have anything like that, Apple inc is stuck in the competition with the samsung galaxy, due to which they cannot afford to have any trial based stuff. I hope you agree with me on this!

    I do agree. Although I think it is a VERY cool feature and I would buy it JUST for that feature alone, I don't think we will be seeing anything like this in the iPhone 5. Maybe 7 or 8!

    I think its a bit too soon to say we will have some sort of "projected keyboard" Our technology has come along way but i think its a bit to soon for that.

    What i personally would like to see is the iPhone 5 having some sort of beveled back housing sort of like the ipad 2. I recently ordered a back for my 4s and i hope this gets implemented so we can hold it a bit better and have a better feel in our hands

    There used to be a keyboard that projected a laser keyboard on any surface. Can't remember the name, but I bought it one time at Fry's just to give it a try and take it back, wasn't worth a damn in my opinion....too hard to type.

    I can imagine the whole screen being projected, so say onto the car windscreen.

    Would using that option count as a 'hands free'? Would there be more car crashes because of blondes using as a mirror to put on their slap?

    Would there be more road rage due to perceived rude remarks about others driving blasted across the back screen?

    I thing exciting times are ahead lol!

    I do agree with you but I heard this roomer from a friend that has a friend that works for apple and told my friend so that's how I came about this roomer and so it came from the inside.

    Honestly... w/ Apples track record on the last 4 iPhone releases, we're sure to see an external redesign. That's what I'm looking forward to w/ the next release. Possibly stepping up to 1GB of ram... that would also be nice. :) Flashing red LED isn't going to help me much since I'm color blind.. LOL!!! And a projected keyboard... come one people, this isn't Star Trek.

    It's not yet you have to admit that that advancements in technology are greatly increasing and they have been for the last ten years. But one gb of ram would be nice. I'm also looking forward to a redesign

    Sadly, I bet they're going to create a phone that aesthetically competes with the Droid- builds. Thin to the point it doesn't hold well, and a screen that is larger than any phone needs to be; especially if one already has a tablet as well.
    I've heard a lot, that they're working like crazy to create a new battery chemistry in order to maintain long usage claims with such a thin case. This scares me for an initial launch-I'll let braver people risk it first when it comes to battery technologies.
    I, too, would like to see a "slightly" larger variant if the 4(s) with a beveled backside

    I really want many features as the external keypad, free internet, slim, better RAM and memory space.

    External keyboard... won't happen. Free internet... HA! Talk to your provider about that one. Slim... the iPhone is pretty slim as it is. Better?!? More RAM, perhaps... this would be an excelent addition. Memory space... is 64GB not enough for a mobile phone?

    So very true, external keyboard is something that would ruine the device, though phil has done some good reviews on accessories (external keyboards) so that is likely to be the only option for those who want a keyboard there,

    Free internet?! will never happen! even unlimited 3G data is dying and barely any one offers it and you pay large amounts of money for very low limits 500mb/1GB usually.

    more slim like the ipod touch? would not be very good on a phone imo that slim.

    more ram I think would likely happen, but more memory? that wont happen especially before the ipad gets more of it such as a 128GB version, but I agree I think even 64GB will be too much! lol though you do end up using up space over time with those HD recordings and pics..etc but for at least the next few years I think 64GB will be the max that we see.
