9to5 Mac has exciting news today that backs up the recent story from TiPB that Apple will start selling the iPhone 5 on either October 7 or October 14, with the former date more likely as apparently the phone is almost ready to be released. According to 9to5 Mac’s sources, Apple will start taking pre-orders for the next iPhone on either September 29 or 30, with 9to5 Mac saying that it believes that Apple will eventually settle on the 30th to start taking the pre-orders. The report also says that the mysterious sources think that the iPhone 5 launch event, which will be held by Apple to announced the phone’s imminent arrival, will be sometime in September, rather than in October, which contradicts what Kara Swisher said on All Things D about an iPhone launch event in October. One thing’s for (almost) sure, we don’t have long to wait to find out who was right!

So iOS 5 should be out sometime early next month. I wish

ICrank, I hope so. At least for the iPad user's sake. I'd hate to have to wait until October to download it. As for the iPhone, I'm having a tough time deciding. Maybe I should look at iOS's stability versus Android openness. And the fact that I have more money invested in Apple. I have a lot of apps that I paid for, and good apps at that. And Android either doesn't have them yet, or they aren't no where near as good.

I have both and I'm keeping my IPad at 4.3.2.

If you don't mind me asking, why?

For starters I don't need the features on my iPad. It's basically my home computer. Lol. Secondly I have a certain movie app that I'd rather keep so I could stream movies to my HDTV...once iOS 5 is untethered jailbroken I'll probably update but I'm not in a rush to do it.

I do disagree, the 3G/3GS design was close to perfect, the iP4 was and still is a good looking phone, but handling it is less comfortable than the 3G/S.

So i really hope the design is closer to the 3G/S

I agree. The ip4 design is my favorite by far.

I'm also quite sure that of the design of the 4 didn't exist I wouldn't use a iPhone period

Ditto. I would've went with the HTC thunderbolt back at upgrade time.

Personally I like the 4 better than the 3G. I own4 of them. I have never had the antenna issue, and it just feels great in my hand. I do not use a case, Steve Jobs would not approve! But I do hope they squeeze every bit of screen size out of the current overall size. I don't care for those EVO-sized phones. I am more exited about the iOS 5 than the phone, my only other concern is storage space... I cannot get my wife and nieces to remove any of their pictures and videos from their phone to their PC's, but perhaps the Cloud will answer that request...at least until I start getting charged for "excess" storage;)

Regardless of overall design, I hope the screen is larger. At lease closer to four inches.
