The next phone will be more impressive. New->Refresh->New (rinse-repeat). Apple does this with all hardware.
They did some impressive things with this one, though. It has the best camera and graphics performance, has dual core, larger memory option of 64GB, improved antennae and it's Verizon, Sprint and AT&T compatible with one SKU. Plus, don't forget that iOS has had a major update and that's coming next week.
Apple likes the ~3.5" form factor. They research this ****. Don't expect that to change.
The event was more focused on iOS 5 instead of the new iPhone. Fair enough, iOS 5 is really sweet.
The 3.5" form factor is kinda retarded IMO. While it's still compact, some people would rather have a bigger screen to show pictures to friends, reading, etc. But then again some people like having small devices the size of nickels (zoomy
But I really like my wife's iPhone 4. It's a pretty slick phone, best phone I've ever used honestly.
