Here's the skinny: the following information is a set of educated guesses, analyzed facts turned into what I feel will be exactly what Apple will release at their next major keynote event as far as mobile devices go. First, I do not think that the device will have a "5" in the title. Although it's been an eternity in human time since the last iPhone release, that being the iPhone 4 for Verizon
, in Apple time it's only been nearly enough time before the next massively successful release. What I believe here instead is that all four
of the biggest carriers
in the USA will get the newest version of the iPhone inside October of 2011 and that this device will hold more water than just hardware improvements.
