Apple "Let's talk iPhone" event set for Oct. 4
Jim Dalrymple of the The Loop got one of the shiny invites Apple is sending out for their "Let's talk iPhone" event to be held, as rumored, on October 4.
Will we see the iOS 5 gold master (GM) on or before the event? Will we see an iPhone 4GS or iPhone 5, a white iPod touch? All we know for certain is this -- one more week and the rumors will finally be replaced with real products.

At 1 Infinite LoopThere is only one phone to announce.
This goes WELL with the rumors that the new "Apple Assistant" Software will require more RAM. Which will make more sense since the current 4 probably can't handle it. So they will just Sneakily release better hardware specced 4's called the 4S for anyone who doesn't want the 5.

I think that'll be the killer new iOS feature announced this year.
But more Hold down the home button and "Lets talk Iphone" assistant..
Yeah.. Something like that..
The point I was trying to make is that while I'm hoping they will indeed release the iPhone 5, a LOT of people are going to be super-pissed if they merely release an iPhone 4S. The point I raised is that in he actual Apple invite, the name of the phone, whether it be 4S or 5, is NOT mentioned.
If you think it's obvious, well, we all know what happens when you assume.
FACT IS they said nothing except they're talking about iPhones. THAT is it. While it is PROBABLY an iPhone 5, it's people like these replying negatively are the ones who support inserting opinion in news stories, and end up being the reporters who create false assumptions based on "widely held beliefs".
Any scientist could tell you most people's widely held beliefs about the world are completely wrong.
It's like assuming "organic" means anything, when if you break down the word it means nothing in reference to food and has no legal meaning either.
The point is THIS IS NEWS SO STOP CHANGING IT TO FIT YOUR OPINION REGARDLESS OF HOW BADLY YOU WANT IT TO BE TRUE!!!
You must be new here. Here as in planet earth ;)
Regardless of WHAT you believe, next Tuesday CANNOT come fast enough. The change of our regular iPhone release schedule (or at least our expectations) have resulted in sustained suspense over the past three months, and I just can't wait to have an answer. I'm just hoping the hype lives up to my expectations.
But who can be sure?
Couldn't phrase it any other way, eh?
" ONE MORE THING" . ;)
How come TIPB NEVER gets the invitations ?
I don't understand why Apple never gives the priority to real websites and blogs dedicated to iPhone.
Let's go Apple!
Shall I continue, or are you finished criticizing people's writing skills that are clearly far more advanced than your own?
Show me where I posted New or Shold've , ;) When I typed New , it was meant as NEW. Not knew here, but NEW here. get it ?
...I'll say it: voice activated scheduler. (yeah, I know it sound ridiculous)
1. There will now be 4 Tuesdays per week.
2. Apple has figured out how to magically stop time.
3. Apple will unveil 280 giant red water towers to be place on freeways.
4. 1 new version of color green, referred to as "Unicorn tears iGreen"
I find myself asking why Apple has waited this long to release new hardware, whether that happens on the 4th or later...did AT&T request time to catch up? After all, they were probably losing a portion of their subsidies by moving up the eligibility dates of their customers each year...would it be complications with the new iOS? Or maybe, to offset the change in Apple stock prices since the announcement of Steve Jobs' resignation they planned a delayed release of new tech.
My two cents on the "Assistant" upgrade: Why are they focused on that?! It's a cool feature but how many people actually use it? And if you do, let me be the first to tell you how silly you look showing off in public. (Sorry...it's just like wearing your BT headset all the time, whether you have a call or not. It's geeky.) I hope they are spending good energy on true native app integration, Cloud services, updated notifications, larger screen, stronger battery, increased RAM and storage....and for goodness sakes! They had better have the antenna correct!
Something to do with iPhone launch. Does it hint at the iPhone '5' being more prone to damage?!!
