It seems the only thing the iphone 4G is missing is this. SAMOLED over TFT. Apple will hopefully satify customers with hi res, high ppi, & tout IPS.
WIFI N standard. B, G are a little old, but the majority of people may still use b,g wireless. Making N expensive upgrade, but the important fact is, it's worth it.
Camera depends on the quality of ccd image sensor lens apple want their users to have. 5mp & 720p should be good enough for absolutely anyone providing it's a good component & done right.
It'll be the battery that needs innovation. Apple need not to compete against other products but in fact realize smartphones & in particular this new one will require more battery life than ever. The only way is farwards not backwards or stationary. This is a constant & most important factor for concern for every user.
Apple are not focusing on the latest & greatest technology. Rather providing their users with a perfectly adequate hardware upgrade which will provide more than enough power for functionlity.
Think about this. A good modern cpu with plenty of processing power under the hood, plenty of ram for application memory with speed & convenience in mind.
Generous storage memory, which id above the competition completeley. Don't know whether theres a GPU in there.
Apple will rather be conservative & pull out all respectable requirements.
It seems Apple want to provide a refreshing upgrade in terms of a speedier cpu power, memory, storage that are convenient & capable enough to drive things along better & faster.
Apples focus is probably on a few extra touches & features but simpler, faster & more effectivley than last time.
mark, 05 Jun 2010you can download an app that allows you to listen to pretty much every radio station in the world.Hi Mark , Do u Happens to know the name of this App ?
Does it use WI-FI to stream the music or uses the 3G network connection
Does it reacquire a specific OS update (higher then 3.1.2)
Do u have any idea if it works with 1st Gen. iPod Touch
excited for tomorrow cant wait for the new features to be announced
Actually the old iPhone and the new iPhone looks basically the same, only that the new iPhone cuts out the silver lining around the Old iPhone, and of course the specs seems to be updated, and im going to an iPhone Conference woooooohooooooooo
This phone sucks, since it is the newest one, it should have better features. It is a big disappointment from apple. Compare to Samsung features, Apple is far lacking behind, yet many people still want apple phone. People have no taste of their own, just because your friends have an apple iphone, doesn't mean that it's good. I thought Apple is going to make this phone to have HD video recording, but a big disappointment. I never buy this phone. It really sucks, bad features.
Was really considering getting this iphone until I read it has only another LCD display. After seeing the difference between LCD and AMOLED it was the deal breaker. So its the Super AMOLED toting Galaxy S for me.

It is really a fantastic phone...
but Can someone tell me when is it going to be announced?
Why do you need java when there is the app store much better and slicker....I got my I phone and i never regretted getting em.... :)
Actually it's not bad considering this phones TFT display is IPS variant with the highest TFT PPI yet.
Of course IPS panels already use more than TN, VA panels. I hope they have a monster size battery in development for the higher ppi overall res & IPS factors for concern in a phone using 1GHz cpu. Mind you it's a 45nm & arm cortex are pleasing on battery life.
Good job theres no 65nm snapdragon in there then. That would leave apple needing to work on os efficieny & other factoring overheads.
I never said I didn't like the shape of the iphone. But this is hardly innovative with a few rounded & polished edges here & there
For me, I need a phone without closed hardware & soft architecture, limitations, & only dependant on it's app store.
I'm sorry but java id my thing, & so is flash accelerating 75% of webflash websites. Despite apple having work arounds, it's way inconvenient. Plus apple need to make sure their OS is upto scratch since most other platforms can recogise flash & run it without any wavering drawbacks.
But my overall opinion is I do like thr phone. But apple are expensive & charge for almost everything. It would need to have the other hard to live without defining hardware techs which apple are behind on.
Apple may have had a head start & impressive app store. But nokia's ovi store is soon integrating meamo & mee go. S^3 + devices will gain better wider field dev support. Off course the language is a breeze & also a new framework will inspire non programmers to make programs more easily.
Good luck to apple fans. The 4G will probably be very good phone. But expect some undercuts.
Anonymous, 04 Jun 2010A music phone without radio...?!?!? That too without Java support!!? What the fart is ha... moreyou can download an app that allows you to listen to pretty much every radio station in the world.
I avoided buying apple because of the hardware and the OS limitation that Apple ignored until now....
Spend 1300SGD when HTC touch cruise was launched and then moved to Samsung Omnia II picked up for 800SGD and now using E72(office) along with Omnia II. Finally with Apple 4G it is time for peoples like me who liked apple but didn't buy due to poor specs will finally jump into the apple wagon this summer. My friends called me Apple hater but owning a 4 yr old MAC laptop does not make me a hater but I simply can't come to the terms to buy a under speced hardware....I bought a ipod touch which I think is bit expensive but best serves the perpose for which peoples out there bought the iphone. With iphone 4G I think now Apple is launching a true product where people like me would finally merge there phone, ipod and camera into one. you must have heard a leading bank (SCB) have replaced blackberry with iphone 3gs, and with iphone 4G coming with quite decent (I won't say best) this is surely going to become the corporate mobile of future. Offcourse I donot undermine the 'Desire' of android which is growing at a faster pace and the reviving of Window mobile this year. For as of now I see iphone 4G going to make a big splash this summer matching the highend android phones in terms of hardware. I am not refering to software because apple anyway have a lead here, don't forget they were the first to come up with GUI on computers long before Big brother Bill.
