Get ready: Tuesday is iPhone day.

Tim Cook will take the stage for the first time as Apple’s new permanent CEO Tuesday morning, replacing the recently-retired Steve Jobs to reveal the company’s newest gadgets. Cook may not be the star that Jobs has become, but sources at Apple assure me that the holiday product lineup will be the real star of the event.

The most anticipated product is the new iPhone. Rumor has it that the phone will be called the iPhone 4S, not iPhone 5. We have seen Apple do this before when its flagship phone has not been fully refreshed but rather updated incrementally. The 3G and 3GS are good examples.

I think this update will have faster software and hardware, and possibly some speech-to-text features similar to those Android phones have natively. I also believe the company will upgrade the camera from 5 megapixels to 8 for even better photos and videos.

This will be a hot seller this Christmas, like every previous generation of iPhone. In fact, some analysts have said that the only thing that will compete with the iPhone for holiday sales will be the iPad.
