  • Report: iPhone 5 To Deliver Few Modifications Over iPhone 4


    According to the research, findings, and a healthy dose of speculation from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo with Concord Securities, Apple's long-awaited iPhone 5 may ultimately delver only a few, less than groundbreaking improvements over the 4th generation Apple smartphone.

    Based on what Apple's overseas supply partners tell him, the iPhone 5 will not bestow an all-new design or anything - at least from an aesthetic standpoint - that is radically different from the previous four generations of the device. Kuo says the new phone will deliver only "slight modifications" from the last generation. In other words, expect the same body and retina display you already have.

    It should also be noted that almost everyone - Kuo included - has stopped alluding to Near Field Communication (NFC) technology as a possible new attribute of the iPhone 5. NFC would make mobile payments (transactions via smartphone at the point of sale) possible at participating retailers across the US. As it now appears, Apple is once again putting off mobile payments for a future generation product or device.

    All told, the guaranteed iPhone 5 modifications alluded to are those we've already been anticipating - an 8 megapixel rear camera and a Qualcomm baseband (GSM and CDMA). Kuo alleges that the radical overhaul of design and functionality will likely come with the 6th generation iPhone (can you believe we're talking about the 6th before the 5th has even turned up?). Still, the most interesting aspect of Kuo's report is that all signs now point to a September iPhone 5 release.

      Does anyone know if iPhone 5 will support Message Access Profile or MAP through Bluetooth. Most new vehicles, including my new Jeep Grand Cherokee's radio and media center support hands free texting. MAP allows your phone to communicate with your car's radio which reads your messages to you. I can't believe some of the cheesiest phones support MAP and the iPhone does not...

      My wife and I were holding out for the White i4. Since it took so long to be released we figure its worth it to wait a little longer for the i5 in black or white. Honestly I'm glad I didn't get the i4. Can't wait for those dual core processors!!!

      Ok, keep telling yourself that. iPad had thousands of apps available at launch. Devs wont waste their time with the Playbook. They know where the money is. Its iOS. Dont waste your money.

      As a VZW iPhone 4 user,(and first iPhone at that), I will not lie and say I HOPE it's minor changes, I HOPE it's not until sept if not later. Now Athis is all so i don't have to feel like I got screwed buying the 4th gen! Lol hey, at least I'm honest about it.

      Define "professional grade". I've done training on it (because I sell them were I work). They suck.
