  • iPhone 5 Enters Trial Production, Full Production Beginning Quarter 3

    A Chinese publication, China Times is reporting this morning that they have production details regarding Apple's fifth generation iPhone. According to the chinese translation, the new handset is in a "trial production" and will go into full production very soon, in the third quarter of this year. For anyone who's followed Apple's release schedules for the previous four generations of the iPhone, this should not come as any surprise.

    Further details in the article confirm other rumors we've heard about for the iPhone 5. China Times again states that we'll see a larger screen, supposedly to combat the onslaught of Android devices with larger screen sizes. Other rumors restated in the article include the inclusion of NFC technology, which the rumor mill has flip-flopped on, as well as an antenna redesign that would supposedly alleviate the well-documented issues with antenna design of the iPhone 4. There's also a mention of the A5 processor, which would be surprising not to see in the iPhone 5.

    Finally, the report discusses a new scratch-resistant metal chassis, again no major surprises. If this report is any indication, the new iPhone will feature much of the established rumors. It is expected that Apple will release the iPhone 5, barring production delays, in early summer 2011.

      To those of you who have the 3GS:

      I rationalized not getting the 4 because it didn't look like it was that much better of a phone on paper. But I was wrong.

      In December, 2010, I lost my 3GS with 2 months left on my contract. So I went back to ATT and was able to purchase the iphone 4, with a new contract, for $299.

      It really is that much better ...

      If the recent rumors are true we maybhave to wait till the fall or next year. If they can incorporate LTE it may be worth the wait.

      Why would they make an iPhone 5 so quickly? Apple has enough money as it is, and they haven't had it out long enough to notice any real problems. There just going to add unnecessary hardware, and bull crap that will drain the battery. Apple you need to recognize what your doing.
