Word is leaking out now from some fairly reliable sources that the iPhone 4 could be replaced in the iPhone line by a new iPhone (the "iPhone 4c?", "iPhone 5"?) as early as January!! Here's the first "high-profile" report on this : . New iPhone. According to our source—and we have to say that we find this part hard to believe—Apple is pushing up the release date of the fifth-generation iPhone to early 2011 (as soon as January) because of the antenna issues with the iPhone 4. It’s unknown whether this will be a repackaging of iPhone 4 components in a different shell or something more substantial. We reiterate: it’s hard to believe. But as with so many seemingly far-fetched early reports, it’s not impossible.

In addition to the publics' tainted view -- fairly or unfairly -- of the iPhone 4, it's rumored that Samsung could be releasing an Android 2.2-based smartphone in November with an integrated pico projector. This was one of the enhancements rumored for the next iPhone. It's hard to believe that Apple would allow Android a 7 month lead on them in this area.
