Yes..... But.....to call it iPhone 5 would surely require a fairly major hardware upgrade. Unless they have something completely out of the ordinary in the pipeline I would guess it'll simply be a bit more memory and processor power and iOS5. I don't think there would be enough to justify calling it the iPhone 5. I guess the best indication will be iPad gen II in May.

I change my phones regularly ..

the iphone 4 is the first phone I have no real wish to change .. it is a thing of beauty, solidy built and fast with a crystal clear display at night or in sunlight. I had my early reservations, but the comprehensive amount of apps to cover just about any shortcoming is absolutely staggering

plus I am a scrabble addict on it

I was told there's a new Sony smart phone coming out very soon that has beaten the iPhone and the htc in some independent reviews.. I have the iPhone myself but will be looking at a new one soon enough too..I also heard that apple could be changing the face of the new iPhone because a lot of smartphones are similar looking to it now.. Apparently the home button is going so it will be full touch screen!

Anyone tried the Motorolla DEFY ? I've just suggested this to the boss in order to upgrade Polwart into the world of Smart Phones. Claims to be IP67 (and there are videos of it under water and then working fine) so I'm guessing it might be useful on-board as well as in real life... anyone any experience?

The Iphone just works! No messing about and it has more apps than anything else.
