While at a music festival recently, friends wouldn't get my texts until we left the festival. AT&T is atrocious. Calls drop constantly in DC, especially if you're in Farragut or Dupont. My gf has it even worse with a 3GS.

A Verizon management type told me last week the iP5 definitely has both chips in it.
Which isn't really that ground-breaking: my 30-month-old BB has both CDMA and GSM.

Struggling with the Verizon vs. AT & T thing. Not happy with AT & T coverage bit I like being able to be on the phone and internet at the same time. Tough decision for me.

iPhone 5 is coming in the fall. I'm confident they'll offer a 64 GB model (which I want badly). Fingers crossed they'll bump the screen size up to 4". 3.5" is too small these days.

RIM is 2nd. what is impressive though is that the iphone has around 8% of smartphone sales, yet 25% of the total market share.
Would be pretty sad if Andriod's didn't pass them seeing as how they release a new phone every weekend. I thought RIM was 3rd? Source?

Forbes reports on a new research note from Jeffries & Co. analyst Peter Misek claiming that Apple's next-generation iPhone will be a relatively minor revamp known as the "iPhone 4S" and will debut in September. Misek also claims that Apple will be expanding carrier availability in the U.S. to include Sprint and T-Mobile by the end of the year, with China Mobile also reportedly coming on board."According to our industry checks, the device should be called iPhone 4S and include minor cosmetic changes, better cameras, A5 dual-core processor, and HSPA+ support," he writes in a research note. But he also says that "industry checks indicate Apple will likely announce Sprint, T-Mobile, and China Mobile as new carriers." The "iPhone 4S" name first gained publicity last month in claims that Apple has been providing select high-level iOS developers with souped-up iPhone 4 devices, with the source citing an unofficial name of "iPhone 4S" for the device. Misek's report goes on to note that the next-generation iPhone is not likely to bring compatibility with faster LTE 4G networks rolling out in some markets, as the required chipsets from Qualcomm are not yet available in quantity to support the inclusion of the technology.As for LTE, he says the Qualcomm LTE chipset Apple would have used "is currently not achieving yields sufficient for inclusion in the iPhone 5." He says Apple had hoped to have the LTE chipsets ready, but was planning a version without LTE called iPhone 4S. The claim regarding a lack of LTE compatibility in the next-generation iPhone fits with earlier reports that the required chipsets won't be available to make their way into handsets until 2012. \t\t\t\t\t

My sister is wanting an iPhone and I told her to wait till next month. If the delay is real, then just go ahead and get am iPhone 4. I expect the 5 to be like the 3GS. An overall minor spec update.

I think its worth the wait. The A5, memory, and camera upgrades should only improve the user experience.

Personally I might wait, but she has been wanting a new phone for some time and is a casual user.

Still, I think its worth it. Why buy year old tech when you can get the new one in 3 months. Here's a mockup of the 4S:

Why not wait for the iPhone12? Rumor is it'll rub your balls while you have it in your pocket.
