    my wide ballpark predictions for this year

    1. iPhone 5 announcement 90 % chance including shipping by Oct 5 in tier 1 countries (not China).  Best guess.
    2. iPad mini   60 % chance, shipping by Nov 15
    3. iOS 6 , available worldwide by Oct 31.  (might be on new iPhone before being available publicly)
    4. Revised Apple TV software   90 % chance
    5. Revised Apple TV hardware   50 chance
    6. Apple Television pre-announcement—20 % chance.

    Good predictions. I like the percentages.

    iPad Mini:  90% chance.

    “Copy this!”  LOL  Well, until there’s power over Thunderbolt, I guess USB 3.0 support would be fine.

    Is it some unwritten law of SCM leaks that photos must always be blurry and/or at stupid angles? raspberry

    iPhone shipping by October 5th? Apple won’t announce this Q if they won’t ship this Q. Or maybe I’m misreading your statement?

    Yep.  A Sept. 12th announcement locks a FQ 4 release.

    There was some controversial discussion earlier in this thread about an iPhone mini, but perhaps the road to the iPhone mini will become a little clearer if the iPod nano indeed gets a phone-like shape and wifi as the rumors and this article suggest. Could see this evolve into the phone-capable less-expensive device for underserved markets; maybe sticking with wifi, maybe it has cellular, or maybe something else altogether. Not sure how this jives with the purported unsubsidized $200 iPhone 4 suggested by Munster, though as sensible as I often think he is, he’s also often very wrong (e.g., ATV, China results last quarter, etc).

    Anyway, just was wondering if anyone thought this idea has credibility or is hairball. Some interesting stuff may be overlooked among the more amazing news of the trial, iPad mini, etc..

    That’s why I called the post the “wide ballpark”.  A more precise prediction would be before Sept 30.

    NFC on iPhone ?

    Nope, looks like a custom version of something like this to me. Its placement is perfect for using it instead of a PIN code unlock and even swipe-to-unlock, in addition to wave-to-pay. Maybe Apple is busy licensing swipe to unlock to the Android OEMs right now . . . .

    (Warning: my speculations are 95% of the time completely wrong.)

    No NFC in iPhone 5

    Very likely no fingerprint scanner either then. Know it is a longshot, but would be a killer feature and very Apple-like to eliminate passcodes and maybe one day passwords. Wonder what the new killer features are going to be for this phone then? Processor/RAM/LTE/Display? Is that it?

    Does anyone know if some new frequencies will be supported with the new chip?
    I’m eyeing an unlocked phone for one of the discount providers, but they’re at 1700MZH or some other currently not supported frequency.
