iPhone 5 to sport new design, coming in August?

The next-generation iPhone will not be a minor update, according to a new report. Citing a reliable source, Boy Genius Report states that contrary to previous reports which called for an iPhone 3GS-like update, the next-generation iPhone will feature a “radical” new case design, although no additional details regarding the design were available. The report goes on to say that Apple may be planning to hold an event in the beginning of middle of August to announce the new handset, with availability to follow in the last week of August. Prior reports have suggested that Apple will announce its follow-up to the iPhone 4 at its annual music-focused event, traditionally held in September. The next-generation iPhone is expected to feature an eight-megapixel camera, as well as some variant of the A5 processor found in the iPad 2.

I just ponied up for a Verizon iPhone last week after accidentally running my iPod touch through the washing machine. I had every intention of holding out. Oh well, at least I’m locked in on unlimited data…

I got sick of holding holding.  My LG enV touch and iPod Touch 2G were already crapping out.  Needed a replacement for both.  So got the iPhone 4 with AT&T.  And from the re-design rumors, I am happy with the form and shape of the current iPhone especially when they are talking about going back to the aluminum back.

Was going to upgrade when my contract runs out in July but guess I will hold out for the 5. Still using a 3Gs.
