The new iPad's great contribution to the iOSsphere is how it's already fueling new rumors about the iPhone 5.

This week, existential angst about The Name, new iPad's revelations about the new iPhone, being unclear on Clearwire, and a formula for creating your own conclusion about The Date for iPhone 5.

You read it here second.

__________

"iPhone 5 May Now Be Able to Operate on Clearwire"

~ Delaon, PlaneteInsane, summarizing how a phone that hasn't been released may run on a network that hasn't been built

__________

iPhone 5 will have LTE/4G because the new iPad has it

"If the new iPad can make use of AT&T and Verizon's growing next-generation cellular networks, it's a fair bet the next iPhone will include that technology as well," writes Phil Hornshaw at Appolicious, summing up the Conventional Wisdom.

If one product has some New Thing, it's clear that a subsequent, completely different product will also have the New Thing. As Hornshaw says, "a transition to 4G for one Apple device pretty well signals that the company is on board with its capabilities, even as carriers continue to work on building their networks."

Because otherwise, it would be rather strange.

"It would seem rather strange that Apple would add 4G LTE technology to the iPad without bringing it to the iPhone as well," Hornshaw writes.
