If the event is anything like last years, then an iPad refresh might be on the table, with a new iPad mini with retina display and a new iPad [...]

The iPhone 5 is still expected to hit India by end October as earlier reported by iGyaan.
[quote]iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet, the most beautiful product we’ve ever [...]
Thinking of getting the new iPhone 5, it goes up for Pre-Order on the 14th of September and becomes – Available on the 21st of September 2012. If you are in the US , The iPhone 5 comes in the same 16GB/32GB/64GB white or black models as before for the same $200/$300/$400 under contract, respectively. And just like last year, AT&T, Verizon and Sprint will carry the iPhone 5 with T-Mobile still inexplicably on the outside looking in.

Apple is all set to launch the next generation iPhone 5 at its Moscone centre event. While still no confirmations of the event, several sources in India are claiming that the iPhone 5 will come to India almost as soon as the iPhone 4S did if not earlier. So don’t bother spending double or triple the prices, because the iPhone 5 will be launched in India on the 28th of October 2012 for the same price of the iPhone 4s presently.
So imagine this iPhone 5 at Rs. 45,000/-, iPhone 4s at Rs. 35,000/- and the iPhone 4 at 20,000-25,000/- , Good times? Maybe not!
Apple has invited members of the Press and media to attend, what is supposedly going to be the next iPhone Launch, at San Francisco. Several rumors and leaks despite the lock downs by Apple, seem to have shaken the world of technology. Apple products have by far been the best kept secret, but this time around it just seems everyone knows what to expect. Although rumours of a separate iPad -Mini event seem to be doing rounds, we are still skeptical of any such announcement.
The event starts at 10:30:00 PM IST on 12 September 2012 , we will bring you all the dirt and coverage as we can.
The next iPhone/ New iPhone / iPhone 5 will have some serious changes in design if all the recent leaks are to be considered. German website iFun has spotted what appear to be nano sims, at the IFA floor. If the website is to be believed the German Carrier T-Mobile (formerly Deutsch Telekom) is all set to start selling the upcoming iPhone, or atleast is ready with Sim Cards.
The only thing that really worries everyone at iGyaan is the lack of support for nano sims from our Carriers here in India. Just imagine after receiving a shiny white iPhone 5 (or 4 of them) just after launch, I’ll have to hacksaw my micro sim – Ugh!
Before the journey, Here are the major and upcoming smartphones of India in a spec by spec battle.
Sure there are others and we will continue to add them.

Apple iPhone 4s left a lot of hearts disappointed, including ours for a bit. But, looks like a trend has actually emerged from the depths of Apple , iPhone 3G gives 3Gs and iPhone 4 gives 4s.
Anyway more about that later, the topic of the moment is that people are disappointed by the release of the iPhone 4s not being close to expectations, but Apple numbers speak otherwise.
