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.
Former iPhones were labeled like this:
* OG iPhone= 1,1
* iPhone3G = 1,2
* iPhone 3GS= 2,1
* iPhone(PA Semi?) = 3,1
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.

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?

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)."To unpathed waters, undreamed shores." -- William Shakespeare

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!
