A smartphone shopper's dilemma: Wait for the next iPhone or go Android 4.0?

Google and Apple have upped their game in 2012, and a new crop of smartphones running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and Apple's new iOS 6 will offer consumers a tough choice when it comes to choosing a new phone.

Apple isn't expected to launch the next iPhone until the fall. But the company gave a preview of what's to come with the unveiling of iOS 6 mobile software this week at its WWDC conference in San Francisco. From what I can tell, the new iPhone will give the current crop of Android 4.0 devices a run for their money.

In this edition of Ask Maggie I help one reader evaluate the likely trade-offs between one of the hottest new Android devices running Ice Cream Sandwich -- the HTC One X/Evo 4G LTE and the Samsung Galaxy S III and the upcoming version of the iPhone. I also explain why older iPhones won't be getting all the features offered in iOS 6.
