The latest iPhone 5 rumor; quad-mode LTE support Investment bank Morgan Stanley has added their say to the ever-growing iPhone 5 rumor pool.
The bank says the next-gen iPhone, which will likely be released in October, will include a quad-mode LTE/4G chip from Qualcomm allowing for fast data access no matter what carrier you have.

Additionally, newer touch panel tech will mean the iPhone 5 is thinner. The company could use new casing materials, as well.

Says the MS analyst (via Insider): "What is clear about iPhone 5 is that Apple and its supply chain are positively surprised by the demand for iPhone 4S, which increases confidence in strong sales for iPhone 5 later this year. Overall, the supply chain looks for stronger than market growth for both the iPhone (50%+ y/y vs. market 20-30%) and the iPad (20-40% growth, higher with a lower priced iPad 2)"

Furthermore, the bank says the upcoming iPad 3 will go on sale in March with much upgraded features including a quad-core processor, LTE 4G support, and a high-resolution Retina Display at 2048x1536 resolution.

Quad mode...? Mode what? Mode of transportation? Mode-ous operandi?

I feel like there should be a four-wheeler joke here or something like an animal implication here, but when it comes to blanket firing at Apple products, where do you start?

as a non-apple owner/buyer, for my own personal reasons, what is up with the mass amnesia when it comes to a new apple product? is it really that much better than the last one?
