iPhone 5 launch expected today according to the BBC
BBC News - Fifth iPhone expected to be launched by Apple
Apple is expected to launch the fifth version of its best-selling iPhone today. Journalist have been invited to a "Let's talk iPhone" event at its California campus due to start at 10:00 PDT (18:00 BST).
Doubts surround how different the iPhone 5 will be to its predecessor though some do expect big changes.
The launch will be hosted by Tim Cook, now Apple's full time boss following Steve Jobs' retirement in August.
As ever with Apple launches, exact details of product features will not be known until the event. Expert opinion is divided with some expecting significant changes.
So, anyone going to be rusing out to get one when they hit the shops?

I will be in for this!
Should get a call from o2 with details as soon as they know, when the 4 came out they upgraded me and posted it out for delivery on release day. I still went to que at the o2 store with a mate for the lols.
If the 3g > 3gs > 4 is a good indication of how good the 4 > 5 will be then I am excite to say the least

I think it will be the 4S, no 5 yet, just like 3G to 3GS
The 3GS was what the 3G should of been
I will stick with my iPhone 4 for now

a big congratulations to all of you saying the 4s.
now more importantly, how many will rush out to buy a phone that is identical to the phone released 15 months ago (because slightly better camera and battery aren't exactly new features).

Apple could easily charge 1/4 for their phone and turn profit on licensing costs for peripherals alone. But they don't, because they don't have to.
Each to their own - I'm happy with my blackberry thanks

I will. I use my iPhone 4 all of the time so I have no issues with shelling out again. I flog my current phone and use that to offset the cost. I don't really buy much during the year so I'm not that fussed :P

friend of mine buys the new iPhone when released and has done since the first one was released. He likes them and he still has all the handsets (but never updates the iOS to the major releases, just leaves them as is) and you can see the difference between the increments in iOS, but hardware wise not much has changed overall apart from slightly better cpu, battery and camera!

I don't think I shall be personally rushing to get the iPhone 4s, I might do as stated above and sell my current iPhone 4 and offset the cost against the new iPhone 4s but as said I won't be rushing.
I shall be getting the iOS 5 though as soon as it becomes available because if anything it is those features that I am liking very much especially Siri.

Based on some sound advice I go for every other version and run my contract accordingly. I beta test the iOS though, for a variety of reasons it is done in spurts, and I am usually happy to upgrade to that on release.
