  • [ 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.

      Apple's iPhone Roadmap: 3 New Phones This Year? (AAPL)
      Everything is plausible...

      A 32Gb phone is likely - so is colours as per the rest of the iPhone range.

      The other two? I doubt it. But who knows?

      Then why have other manufacturers just about to released oled phones, seems you way out of date my friend

      ok a little previous but just wait a week the point is I'm certain you will see OLED in mass market phone VERY soon and the price is getting more competative daily. trust me I know..... the other posts on this subject are way out of date and some dont even know the correct terminology

      check this one out http://www.engadget.com/2009/02/09/s...a-touch-s8300/

      I would still doubt if it's viable for an iPhone this year - but I could be proved wrong!

      Having seen an OLED screen in the flesh and also a working 3D TV I'm confident we will see a mobile phone sporting OLED in a matter of months if not weeks. As Apple like to be far ahead of the competition and also given that they need better battery life for the other missing functions to be added I'd be fairly confident that the next iPhone will sport an OLED screen.

      As for the 3D TV it was interesting to see the sample but a production unit! that will take someone a bit longer............

      If Apple wont sacrifice their top of the line parts to make a netbook, why would they sacrifice their top of the line parts to make a crappier iPhone?

      The way I see it, a simple upgrade to the existing hardware and software is enough to keep them in the lead for two years.

      This is the first Apple product I've ever used, and I can see why people love them so much. If the new iPhone comes with a better cam and an upgraded SMS app and keyboard, I'm buying!

      oh and I do hope the next one is open to all carriers. I really don't see why such a fantastic phone needs to be tied to particular carriers, it really didn't do them much good.

      The iPhone is the first Apple device (apart from a MAC I bought but have never used) that I have used - and I agree, it is fantastic. The hardware improvements are, IMHO minor. Nice to have's but nothing essential (to me)and I really don't like that design with sharp corners!

      As to it being open to all carriers? I doubt it. Here in the UK it seems to be going the other way with more and more devices being sold by only one carrier, which I think is a retrograde step.

      Maybe apple should perfect its current products before going out and making new 1s.

      Youre post just shows how hard it will be for Apple to make an iPhone with anything new. Almost everything you mentioned is software related while any need for a new iPhone would be something hardware related. Faster processor? Better camera? They would be improvements, but nothing extrememly significant...

      At the moment it's only a rumour so might not be released anywhere. No dates for the US let alone any other country!

      That rumor has just about zero chance of happening. Like Gizmodo or Engadget said, that is pretty much a Mac formed into a phone...
