Why the next iPhone won't be called 'iPhone 5'...

I've been getting more and more bugged by people referring to the next iPhone as being the "iPhone 5", so I thought I'd make this simple graphic to explain why numerically it makes no sense for the next iPhone to be referred to as number 5!

You can download a 300dpi A4 sized version from this link if you want to print your own out and annoy inform any of your co-workers / friends / family / bloggers / podcasters when they start saying "what will the iPhone 5 be like?"...

So the new iPhone should simply be referred to as "the new iPhone" :-)

@Pavel: Yep, that seems like the right thing to do ;)
