iPhone 5 to simply get an upgraded 8 megapixel camera and improved antenna, "this doesn't change everything, again"

Apple iPhone 5 to not be magical, revolutionary?

Well slap me in the face and make me wear a turtleneck, rumors are flying that the Apple iPhone 5 will simply feature "slight modifications" from the iPhone 4, including an 8-megapixel rear camera and Qualcomm baseband for both GSM and CDMA models with the iPhone 5 going into production in September.


I guess this will "change everything, again", will it Apple? With Android-based devices getting massive overhauls for what seems every 3.42 seconds this is a weird move by Apple. Also consider that 2011 is looking to be the year of Android, one would think Apple would be pulling out all the stops to release something magical to the market.

With Apple looking to get mass-production started in September it would lead us to believe it will be the rumored late 2011 launch but Apple would be allowed to reach between 28 and 32 million units shipped by years end. This would also shift into the same gear that includes an iOS 5 launch - this would be quite interesting.
