  • [ RUMOR ] Next iPhone Model to be Released in June


    Emirates Telecommunications - Etisalat, a United Arab Emirates, is getting the iPhone February 15th. What does that have to do with you (uh, if you are not in the UAE)? In the same interview with the Dow Jones when Mark Davis, Program Director for iPhone at Etisalat, announced they'd be getting the iPhone on February 15th, he apparently also said although they were getting this version late than many countries, the

    next version of the device, which is due out in June, will be launched in the UAE at the same time.
    Phil Schiller also hinted at this in an interview with David Pogue after MacWorld, when he said that Apple sticks to annual product schedules, of which the iPhone's is in June.

    Recently, mentions of a new hardware revision have been discovered in the iPhone firmware, reaching back a few firmware cycles.

    Other sites are also wondering what happened to Apple's promised Push notification, and noting that a major hardware revision may be necessary to improve backgrounding ability if Push isn't coming. I'm not sure exactly what they're bsing that on though - Ashikase's Backgrounder has been holding up decently. Improved hardware can't hurt, though.

      Didn't mean push, meant background tasks which should have been released a long time ago, as promised, but haven't.

      Battery life sucks on the iPhone, you can't dismiss that. It would become more of an issue with background tasks, which is presumably why we haven't seen this in 2.x as promised yet.

      A newer model with an upgraded battery would be a good platform to launch 3.0, background tasks would be big enough of an advancement to move from 2.x to 3.x, and all in all would be a good enough reason for someone to upgrade.

      Noone really knows right now and it's just my thoughts but it seems pretty realistic. Better than keeping your fingers crossed for some crazy front-camera-ichat-type-thing

      Let me clarify that image is just a concept I found on digg. That would be a sweet iPhone though, especially since my white plastic 3g case just got a crack in it yesterday!!!!

      I hate to say it but i think this is a dreamer because i doubt they will have an ichat camera. Also, why would they go back to the aluminum design when it caused so many problems with the signal.. furthermore, name one device this decade that has had a removable batter. heck even their laptops are getting away from it. However cool the device looks i think it is a big dream of someone. why a square home button i mean what device has square buttons???

      Huh?! First generation iPhones are still selling for $300+ in good condition. The iPhone will hold its resale value... why would you be selling it 4 months before the new ones are even introduced to the market?

      Am I the only one that gets annoyed when people refer to the various models as 2G and 3G? 3G refers to connection speed not 3rd generation. The iPhones that came out before the iPhone 3G were the iPhone. There was no associated speed name with it. People are assuming that because some phones came out before 3G they should ultimately be called 2G being the previous generation but they were actually the FIRST generation. So PLEASE if you have a phone with a gray metal back refer to it as iPhone, 1st generation or iPhone EDGE. If you have a phone with a shiny plastic back refer to it as iPhone 3G or 2nd generation.

      I have that pet peeve too! lol

      There is no such thing as a 2G iPhone It's either a first generation iPhone and an iPhone 3G.

      First Gen iPhone has EDGE speed data connection, second generation iphone has 3G speeds.

      If I read another post talking abut a 2g iphone, I think I am going to lose my f'in mind. BTW don't start calling the new one the 4g iphone unless the mofo does 4g data connections (which it will most likely not).

      i gota agree the 1100mah internal batt for the 3g does suck but i upgraded mines to a 1600mah internal battery i also have the incase power slider which is another 1100mah batt (i think).... I got enough power to go through out the day. im a power user with beejive running on backgrounder and constantly textn and emails and internet i can from 730 am till 2pm on the incase power slider and then i can get up to about 10pm-12am on my 1600mah internal battery... But thats all on constant heavy use on medium use id get atleast another 4 hours.. id like to see that concept 4g iphone come to light id grab 2 in a min to add to my iphone collection... i got 2 1st gens n 2 3gs
