iPhone 5 Out Start of 2011? Let the Moaning and Rumours Commence!
This could be annoying if owning the latest Apple product is extremely important to you.
It appears that the Cupertino-based purveyor of gadgety niceness is developing the iPhone 5 for launch early next year and that this device will feature a redesign as to avoid the widely (but not experienced by me) reported shortcomings of the iPhone 4.
The Wall Street Journal states that â€œpeople familiar with the matterâ€ have confirmed the next generation iPhone will be pushed forward from its annual product cycle to contend with a rise in competitive high-end smartphones running versions of the Google Android operating system. The Wall Street Journal’s contact also said that the iPhone 5 will feature a â€œdifferent form factorâ€.
A Q1 release would mean that actual production of the newest iPhone should start in the next month or so to prepare for a Spring launch.
This puts a little more weight to the repeated claims that US mobile network provider Verizon Wireless is preparing to stock a new iPhone early in 2011.
I wonder if there’ll be some special deals as releasing the next gen iPhone surely would put Steve Jobs in a position where he would have to admit the failings of iPhone 4?
Would it be safe to predict a new antenna set-up? Perhaps 1.2GHz processor and maybe a larger screen and memory?
Maybe it will be completely see-through? Who knows?Â I’m sure one will be ‘found’ in a bar very soon 😉
How annoyed would you iPhone 4 owners be if iPhone 5 was released early 2011?
