  • 4th Gen iPhone May Debut June 22nd


    Although the biggest news of the day has been reserved for Apple's powerhouse internal hardware upgrades to their Macbook Pro line, there is also (potential) news worth discussing about the 4th gen iPhone. Ever since the iPhone 4.0 OS was unveiled in grand fashion with long awaited (and long overdue) features including multitasking, Apple fans have been chomping at the bit to get their first look at the 4th gen iPhone in all its glory.

    Although no confirmations have yet come from Apple (naturally), there is speculation that the big reveal could take place on June 22nd. For this particular occasion, Apple has once again reserved the very conference center where the company announced the three previous versions of the iPhone. So all signs, indeed, point to June 22nd proving the 4th gen iPhone's "big day." Knowing Apple, however, we probably won't know for sure until the evening of June 21st. After all, something has to drive the rumor mill until then, right?

    Like never before, the hype surrounding iPhone 4.0 OS is in full swing, months ahead of the new iPhone's debut. For now, Apple simply maintains that the hot new OS will "ship this summer" for both the iPhone and the iPad. And while a dev beta is already available, the lack of backwards compatibility with previous generations of the iPhone is rightfully making the iPhone-obsessed community uncomfortably edgy about the seemingly eternal wait before the new device is rolled out.

    For what it's worth, while no concrete evidence has turned up to suggest the announcement of a Verizon iPhone at the June 22nd event, there have been unconfirmed reports suggesting the possible existence of a Verizon iPhone being used in the US in recent days. Could this be evidence leading to a major development about which we've all been sickened thanks to years of unsubstantiated rumors thus far? Your guess is as good as mine.

      Excellent. I may have the 3GS, but I'll certainly be considering an upgrade... :-)

      Very Very correct, My sister is a executive corporate sales manager at verizon and she hates the fact that we can do both at the same time. So why downgrade to a pinto if your lexus just needs new tires?

(Verizon fanboiz, feel free to tear me apart, but facts are facts. More customers doesn't mean a better product/service by any means. Just like with Mac OS.)

      I agree, I still think we won;t see a fULLY cdma Verizon version of the iPhone, however VZW have plans to have the LTE network for data in mayor markets by the 4Q of 2010, so technically the phone can use the LTE for data and the CDMA for voice and be able to do both at the same time. (highly unlikely in my opinion, but technically possible)

      Unless VZW is going to push a HSPA network layer before the LTE rollout like some of the Canadian CDMA providers have done.

      My problems with this article is there is source links to show that Apple has booked a conference center, and not even a name of the center in question. It's very vague and fuzzy.

      Apple has only announced ONE iPhone outside of WWDC, and that was the original iPhone which was announced at MacWorld 2007. All of these events were at Moscone West during conferences. The last un-named "Corporate Event" that was scheduled at Moscone (now removed) is from June 23-24 as reported last month. I really doubt Apple would do a two day developer conference, 5 days was enough to cram together all of the iPhone and Mac. This year they add the iPad as well.

      Current look at the Moscone Schedule shows NOTHING for the final two weeks of June.

      If Apple were to announce an iPhone in late June, it'd be on June 21st or June 28th, the first day of whatever week WWDC ends up being. If WWDC is delayed til late summer/early fall and Apple wants to do an announcement of an iPhone in June/July they'd either do it at Yerba Buena Gardens or at Apple HQ. They wouldn't rent out Moscone for a simple announcement.

      So does the announcement of a new phone equal its availability?


      I'm holding out for the new gen. If new hardware doesn't come out this year i'm just gonna get a 3GS on craigslist or something. I can't give up my iphone even though the nexus one looks delicious.

      the one thing i ask with the new hardware....more battery life for the love of all that is holy.

      faster processor (faster than 3gs) would be second.

      2 More months without an untethered JB. I hope they can find another hole so they can release it earlier...

      Hey D, I ordered a Nexus One on the 8th, and I'm sending it back today. My first impression was I loved it, thought it was the best thing since the original iphone, but after playing around with it for a week, it just doesn't have the functionality, UI, and ease of use as my jailbroken 3GS. The screen is beautiful, but the lack of full screen video display, no flash 10.1 at the moment, and the horrible UI on most comparable apps, just made me miss my 3GS even more.

      I'm still looking forward to the new iphone though...I'll probably upgrade once again.

      Finally an open review of the iphone vs nexus one from an iphone user. I couldn't find one until yet.

      Also the volume needs to be louder and vibrate needs to be harder.

      If not the next iPhone, for sure go for a pre plus on Verizon, if not, go for the EVO 4G.
