The iPhone 4S has already become the second most popular camera phone on Flickr, reaching second-spot behind the iPhone 4 just five weeks after launch, as Apple's iPhone family continues to dominate in this regard.
With a little over 24 hours until Apple CEO Tim Cook showcases the next iPhone, evidence is gathering that the rumoured teardrop-shaped iPhone 5 will not make its debut. Instead, a budget iPhone 4 and new iPhone 4S models will be announced for immediate or near-immediate release, with the iPhone 5 now expected to launch at a later date.
It's been over one month since we published our last iPhone 5 rumour so here's something to feed fan-boys' appetites. Apple will launch two new iPhones next month; an improved specification iPhone 4 and a new "tear-drop" shaped iPhone 5.
As the iPhone 5's inevitable launch date in late September or October draws ever closer, speculators have begun to estimate the device's cost. An image posted on 9to5Mac and sourced from Bloomberg breaks down the iPhone 5's individual component costs and estimates that the device may retail at $620 for a 16GB, slightly less than $649 for the current iPhone 4 16GB model in the US.
