    Ok,let's be honest here. I was disappointed when i didn't see the "new i5" announced. i have only owned an iphone since it was introduced to Verizon in June. I was excited about getting a bright new shiny Apple device but while i was reading rumors of the "new metal back" and "curved glass" I couldn't help but think,man the design of this i4 is near perfect in my mind. I didn't want to lose the glass back or the metal band surrounding the phone but i was confident that if Apple changed the design,it must be something really slick. After all the dust settles I will be very happy to keep this same design. My new device will be"bright,new and shiny" because I have decided to go white with this one. :-)

    I have to say that I am not all that fussed about not getting a redesign on the phone either. I love the design of the iPhone 4 and only really care about changes in it's functionality.

    I still wonder del. You know what I theorized and with all the rumors that floated around it was shocking there was no 5 as well as 4s.

    Anywho, the 4s is still an impressive device, and if I were iPhone inclined I'd be happy with it.

    The rumour mill had me excited to see a new design but business wise, it makes sense to keep the same form. I was assuming it would be a design much like the iPad with an aluminum casing. At least I'm good with my iPhone 4 and I won't feel the need to rush an upgrade.

    "Apple isn’t going to make a new form factor just for the sake of newness itself — they make changes only if the changes make things decidedly better."

    Really? So going from a phone with a perfectly functional antenna (3GS) to a phone which couldn't get half the signal and dropped calls when held by someone with "large hands" was "decidedly better"?

    that wasn't a "form factor" flaw. it was corrected in the verizon version and has been further corrected in the new i4s,so it was internal,not form factor.
