    Bloomberg reaffirms the circulating rumors that Apple will launch a new iPhone in September of this year and is working on a high resolution iPad 3.

    [​IMG]

    They cite two people "familiar with the plans" who indicate that the new iPhone will carry a faster processor and more advanced camera:
    The new iPhone is said to closely resemble the iPhone 4. As expected, the new iPhone will run iOS 5 which is reportedly codenamed "Telluride".

    Bloomberg's sources also report that Apple is testing a version of the iPad that has a "higher resolution screen, similar to the one now used in the iPhone 4". From here, Bloomberg references older rumors that Apple might be working on a cheaper iPhone aimed at attracting customers in developing countries. They seem to believe that work is continuing on this low-end iPhone.

    Finally, they report that the resolution of the new iPad would be "about one-third higher" than the iPad 2. Such a small increase would be a surprise as Apple's method for increasing resolution on the iPhone was to double each dimension to offer simple scaling for apps. It's been expected that Apple might adopt the same technique in the iPad 3, though technical hurdles may exist for such high resolution displays.

    Telluride? Has any other iOS version had a code-name?

    iPhone that's faster with a better camera? I'm all over this. (considering I have a 3GS right now).
    This post said it was going to be a similar design to iPhone 4, and another post said it would have a "radical" design change. :confused:

    One third higher resolution? That doesn't sound right at all, they can't be that far from GPUs that can handle 2048x1536, can they? Why fragment the line with an oddball resolution like that? They didn't do it with the iPhone, and I'd think they'd follow the same pattern with the iPad. The word is they're already writing the more practical "pixel doubled" graphics into the APIs and moving away from the holy grail of continuously-variable resolution.

    Why Are pople so doubtful of a new design? The current design obviously failed with the antenna issue.

    Then why do the verizon phones not have the issue to any significant degree?

    All the iphone rumors conflict. The last one said radically different case, this one says it will closely resemble 4...

    hmm.

    Any chance they are doing 3x original iPhone rez?

    320x480 = original
    640x960 = Retina (2x original)
    768x1024 = iPad 1 and 2
    960x1440 = 3x original?

    that's funny, after the initial hype, I don't hear about the antenna anymore. Also, sales for the ip4 seem to be pretty good.

    This is false cause I just bought an ipad2. The iphone story is true, however. I'm waiting for it so I can upgrade my falling apart 3gs.

    All existing iPad software would be black-boxed? What a mess. I say they'll double it or nothing at all.

    iPad 2 updates weren't great and I didn't need it.
    Got a 15 in MBP to hold me over and will be getting the iPad 3 when available.

    Lower end phone, again with that rumor. Not coming but keep dreaming.

    Iphone 5 cranked up to iPad 2 chip, nice should make ios 5 run like butter. :)

    iPad 3 2012 can't see them wasting the resources coming out with it this year. Hard enough getting an iPad 2 even now. Bought one for my kid and it took almost 4 weeks to get it.

    Retina will be sweet, but on the A5 you will loose the gaming experience that makes the iPad 2 even better. To get any benefit for Retina on iPad 3 it will be another almost year before anything is made for it. You can crank up the spec but if the software is way behind then all you get is another Android. :rolleyes:

    Interesting theory, but I don't think that's quite right either because with odd multiples you still have the problem with things not aligning on pixel boundaries, making things like thin horizontal and vertical lines look bad. Maybe 4X original iPhone rez though? That'd be 1920x1280. That's a lot more than one third more pixels though. And at that point you're not really that far from 2048x1536 anyway.

    the only thing keeping me from buying an iPad is its lack of higher resolution. (I can deal with the OS for the time being.) Apple... Hurry, hurry! I don't wanna have to buy a laptop :(
