  • Upcoming iPhone Event May Be Held at Apple Campus

    While there is every indication that Apple will hold a special event early next month to unveil new iPhone models, no invitations to the event have been sent out as of yet. New indications now point to the event not taking place in San Francisco at all this year. Instead, it now appears that Apple will make the announcement a little closer to home: at Apple’s own Town Hall Auditorium in Cupertino, CA.

    Traditionally, Apple holds these events in San Francisco, usually at either the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts or at Moscone Center. Both venues are generally capable of accommodating several thousand members of the press. By contrast, Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium only has seats for a couple of hundred attendees.

    This will be the first major product launch for Tim Cook since Steve Jobs resigned his position as CEO last month. Moving the event to a smaller auditorium may actually be a smart move for Apple. It will give new CEO Tim Cook a chance to shine on his own and assert himself as the new head of the company.

    One thing is for certain though: Apple won’t be making any announcements from Moscone Center next month. Oracle's OpenWorld conference is currently scheduled to take place there from October 2-6.

    Apple recently blocked out Apple Store employee vacations for the second week of October. In the past, Apple has held press events days or weeks before actual products ship. It seems likely that this will be the case for this product launch as well.

    Even though Apple’s Town Hall Auditorium isn’t a particularly large venue, it has played host to a number of big Apple announcements in the past, including the unveiling of the unibody MacBook Pro, iOS 3.0, and updated MacBook Air models.

    Hopefully, the home field advantage will be a benefit to Tim Cook as he steps out on stage for his first product launch since taking over the company. It’s sure to be another home run for Apple.

      Pixel density and thus resolution on the iPhone 4 is still more than any other current phone on the market. Battery life is still longer than any other smartphone on the market. The A4 processor with iOS 4 is still just as fast and more efficient than any other dual core processor on the market that I've compared it to in real time. iOS is optimized for Apple hardware so it only needs 512MB RAM whereas Android is bloated and then gets a manufacturer UI skin on top of it (HTC Sense, Samgsung Touchwiz... etc) and needs 1GB just to run properly these days. I actually don't see why Apple would need anything more than an iPhone 4S at this point to beat everything out there.

      I believe this year is the year of the software. If apple comes out with 4Gs/4s that would be fine enough. IMO to keep up with the Galaxy S2(or any android phone for that matter) all we would need is widgets.
