    Default iPhone "3,1" Suggests Significant Hardware Change?



    Rumors abound this weekend that Apple is holding steadfast to the late Autumn tradition of previous years and is now once again testing new iPhone hardware that could be introduced as early as next summer.

    According to a report from 9to5Mac:

    Today we learned that new iPhones were found using apps with tracking software in the San Francisco area. The news is not surprising since the same thing has happened around this time of year for the past few years. This is the traditional time that Apple starts testing new iPhone hardware for release in summer.
    While the suggestion of "iPhone3,1" has been around for several months, dating back to its discovery in the iPhone firmware last August, the latest find of it in the San Francisco Bay Area could once again prove telling about what's to come for summer 2010.

    Former iPhones were labeled like this:

    * OG iPhone= 1,1
    * iPhone3G = 1,2
    * iPhone 3GS= 2,1
    * iPhone(PA Semi?) = 3,1
    Despite the find, we're still short on details with regard to the next gen iPhone, although there is no shortage of high hopes for its introduction, including wishes for a multi-core processor to dramatically improve performance. Some are even bandying about the idea of a processor from PA Semi, a Steve Jobs favorite. Rumors aside, all that is known for certain is that the 3,1 designation has many believing that the new iPhone hardware will represent a much bigger upgrade than the previous.

    The iPhone 3G wasn't a big upgrade from the original iPhone, hence only the point upgrade in the hardware code number. While it did add a 3G radio and GPS, the processor was still the ARM 11-based Samsung chip that was also used in the original iPod Touches.
    No matter how you slice it or complicate matters with unsubstantiated speculation, Apple is, indeed, clearing the way for a new iPhone offering. And sans any major security leaks, we will simply have to muster the patience to wait until next June or July to see what Cupertino has in store for us.

    I'm hoping for a higher resolution screen first and foremost. Then native multitasking. If it doesn't get the wvga screen, then I will probably be going to android. wm7 maybe?

    Same here (Android though, wouldn't touch a WM phone). I was actually gonna make the switch to the Droid, but the plans are just as bad as AT&T's.

    i think i'm in the same boat as a lot of people. either this thing will be a substantial enough of an upgrade over my 3g (oled screen mayhaps?), or i'll look into android.

    Same here. July 2010 I am free from AT&T! Apple is going to have to come out with some big changes for me to change my mind on going prepaid (and staying with AT&T out of contract of course).

    i'm not surprised that there's another iPhone coming out. It's been like that for the past 2 yrs. The 3G[S] has a fast enough processor and memory (could use a lil more, but good enough). I'm looking more towards the actual OS rather than hardware this time. So, i'm still glad i switched to the 3G[S]. But, Apple this time around has to come out with something completely different in their iPhone OS or else, they're pretty much done for. I'll stick with them..Android is nice but it's OS is still young and could use a lot more refinement. It's been 2yrs Since their OS is out and i haven't seen any major differences in their product..other than that it's been on like several phones. Oh well..still a good OS. I'd use one as a backup phone though.

    COME ON APPLE STEP IT UP! People want multitasking (is offered but only with default applications of the iPhone) and these damn widgets. Good thing there's the jailbreak community. As long as they're around I'll stick around!

    The Pre uses a Tegra chip and hasn't exactly done much to show it off...

    The Zune Hd uses a Tegra chip and once again...nothing spectacular.

    The Pre sucks as a Phone. The OS isn't bad but their Phone is basura!

    I wanna try out one of the Zune HDs.
