June 22, 2011 10:09 AM
We're purportedly three months away from a bright, shiny new iPhone model -- dubbed either the iPhone 5 or 4S, if early reports are accurate. And, like with any forthcoming product from Cupertino, the rumor mill has hit a fever pitch, churned by anonymous inside sources "familiar with the matter."

counters with its own sources
and reports that, no, the iPhone 5 won't have a new case, but will include a new 8-megapixel camera and an A5 processor.
