Let's Talk iPhone

The next iPhone has been the talk of the town lately. Sprint announced it would have unlimited data plans when it gets the iPhone 5. T-Mobile complained that it didn’t get any iPhone love. AT&T thinks it will continue to dominate in iPhone sales and services. After all this posturing, it isn’t a surprise that the new iPhone is likely being announced at an upcoming press conference. Apple sent out simple invitations to the event, saying “Let’s Talk iPhone”. Sounds pretty clear.

Apple has changed up its tablet/phone launch strategy this year, which has led to a lot of speculation. Different manufacturing specs and concept images have leaked, and there are a number of possibilities as to what we will see next week. The iPhone 4S has been discussed in addition to the iPhone 5. Some have even expressed concern that the original iPod may have reached its end of life. It would make sense to leave the bottom end iPods intact, but even Sony ditched the cassette Walkman recently. For the iPod to become a dinosaur this quickly is something, though.

We’ll likely get to find out if the iPod has met its end next week. We’ll also get to see if Apple releases two phones instead of the usual ace. I am looking forward to seeing what Apple comes up with, especially now that Jobs has resigned. Things may start getting even more interesting.

What do you think? Will we see two iPhones? Will the older iPods retire? Let me know in the comments.
