"basic features, no true multitasking, poor camera, blah blah blah"
Keep telling yourselves this, and it may become true one day.
AnonD-3713, 14 Mar 2011Won't feature NFC support, won't feature true multi-tasking, won't feature true video-call, wo... moreYeah,sometimes even low end phones have more feature then their super iPhone lol
Won't feature NFC support, won't feature true multi-tasking, won't feature true video-call, won't feature widgets, won't feature mass storage, won't feature AMOLED display, won't feature bluetooth file-transfers, won't feature Adobe Flash support. But still, will feature a hell of alot of sales.
But all of these moves are leading up to the iPhone 5 -- a completely redesigned handset -- which our sources say is on track for a summer launch. Right now, the device is being tested discreetly by senior staff at Apple (strictly on campus only). We don't have much info on the phone at this point, but our understanding is that the new device will be a total rethink from a design standpoint and will be running atop Apple's new A5 CPU (a Cortex A9-based, multi-core chip). This device, like the iPad 2, will feature a Qualcomm chipset that does triple duty as the CDMA / GSM / UMTS baseband processor -- from what we hear there's no LTE in the mix at this point.
One other interesting tidbit: Apple is at work on the second generation of its redesigned Apple TV, which will include that new A5 processor. The CPU is said to be blazingly fast, cranking out 1080p video "like running water." It's likely that the A5 will make it into the iPad 2 as well, but we have yet to confirm that.
