iPhone HD: Front Facing Camera, A4 Chip, 3rd Party Multitasking? June 22nd?
So it looks like the WSJ article about the new iPhones coming this summer left something out of the equation. John Gruber from Daring Fireball implies that the WSJ article is missing what’s coming this summer in the so-called “iPhone HD”. Here’s what we can expect:
Keep in mind thereâ€™s a big difference between â€œisâ€ and â€œappears to beâ€. And they have no actual details of the next-generation iPhone. Nothing. Not the A4-family CPU system-on-a-chip. Not the 960â€‰Ã—â€‰640 double-resolution display. Not the second front-facing camera. Not even the third-party multitasking in iPhone OS 4. All they have is that thereâ€™s going to be a new iPhone this summer, period. Thanks for the scoop, Yukari Iwatani Kane.
Wow. If Gruber is accurate in his “predictions”, this is going to one heckuva summer. It’s obvious that Apple would release a new high resolution display given that rival handsets, such as the Google Nexus One and HTC Evo 4G have incredible displays.
Engadget Reports Tuesday, June 22nd is the Release Date of the “iPhone HD”
After the WSJ article broke, the Engadget team updated their story about June 22nd being the launch date for the iPhone “HD”. Take this with a grain of salt once again.
Apple seems to have had a very busy day today:
- Mac OSX 10.6.3 released.
- iPad tutorial videos posted on Apple.com.
- iPhone 3.2 SDK Gold Master released.
- Spread news of iPhone HD to the interwebs**
** this may or may not be true 😉
Are we seeing ‘leaked’ info on the internet to raise the bar for the next iPhone, only to have Apple come up with even more surprises?
