New iPhone 4s or 5 soon?

As an iPhone user, who retains their original (damn those 24 month contracts!) iPhone, I'm hoping to get the next generation of iPhone as soon as it is released.

Originally the rumours were for an April 2011 release, now some sites are reporting a July release for an iPhone that will not look that different to and iPhone 4 - an iPhone 4S if you will -  that will have some added capacity and a northern Spring release date in 2012 for an even newer version - an iPhone 5.

The word is that the new iPhone will include an 8-megapixel rear camera and both CDMA and GSM radios, making it a world phone.

Appleinsider also reports:
As for the SIM-less design, last week the CEO of carrier Orange said that Apple will introduce a new, smaller and thinner SIM card in its next-generation iPhone. There were reports last year that Apple was working on an embedded SIM design that would allow users to select a carrier and service plan directly from their iPhone, but it was claimed that those plans upset carriers who felt they could be marginalized by such a move.
The most revealing thing in this, is that it is possible to design a phone that doesn't need one of those pesky miniture SIM's that are impossible to remove without damaging them or your manicure.
