Take it for what it's worth. Enjoy:
The rumors are coming fast and furious these days. Hopefully that's a good sign release is imminent!
woah, man, so many rumors and it's only may [day] with release not expected until june - even end of june if to be released on the 1 yr anniversary . . . would be nice if at WWDC, the steve just releases it into the wild!!
This seems to fit in quite well with 9to5Mac's story below. I certainly hope it is true, and 9to5Mac have a good track record for accurate rumours.
Black or white instead of metal? Meh. If they do that, it had better at least reduce the weight.
cool, hoping for video chat!
The future is....
boring. All this insider information is going to make the release anti-climatic. Seems like we know everything already. Shape, size, color, features. Can someone please develop a software so i can control my car James Bond style with it?
All joking aside, can't wait for WDDC. Bring on the goods Steve!
A (according to early rumours) red iPhone? That would look ugly (and possibly) 'tacky'.
this is getting tiresome
.............but I guess this is why we call it macRUMORS!!! Keep it coming! I'll get my 3G iPhone soon! Can't wait!
I'm not sure about it looking more like a Blackberry... but I'll go with a sleeker look, which I'm sure Apple will deliver!
I'm hoping it's got a frontside camera - sounds like it may have. This would go well with 3G video calls but also opens possibilities for iChat video as they suggest!
Counting down the days...!
Bah. too much speculation. Does it matter if it has a possible 3rd sensor near the ear piece? Is that a deal breaker?
Well, if the third sensor is a camera, as some have anticipated, then it might be something worth holding out for.
When was the last time Apple chose plastic over aluminium? Rumors of an aluminium encased MacBook make a lot more sense than an iPhone with a plastic backing.
This is 100% bulls****, Apple will never replace the aluminum for plastic.
End of this rumor.
And the obsession with the iPhone continues--)))
If high quality polymer based materials make the iphone lighter and give better reception... bring it on. It is currently a bit heavy in the pocket.
"Plastic" doesn't necessarily mean cheap or less durable. Perhaps I have too much faith in Apple, but I don't think they will make (at least on the outside) this new iPhone have a cheaper feel (unless of course it is a cheaper version).
Definitely exciting times!
I hope they dont put more plastic on it, that would cheapen it in my opinion. I like my metal backing and mine has no dents or scratches at all. I also hope my nice Vaja case still works with the new dimensions.
Agree 100% here. After all, Stevie was the one who was making a point to go totally environmentally friendly. Putting more plastic on the iPhone will certainly raise the hairs of the environmentalist.
Yes, but putting aluminum over all the additional antenna will certainly raise the hairs of all those poor radio signals trying to make their way out of the phone.
very interesting. Let's hope its good
if the phone is 3G then video calls are pretty much part of the deal so a camera on the front of the phone is a necessity. The one I have on my current 3G phone is about as good as you'd expect it to be for video calls, it makes everyone look like Mr Bean.
I also 100% agree as well. No way will it be plastic. If they do anything to the back, I do like the idea of giving it a more tapered feel. It will be easier to get out of my pocket... For some reason I feel like making it a glossy plastic, it would give it a cheap overall feeling, I don't care what people say about "good plastic". Apple isn't one for making things look cheap...
As usual I promise myself not to read anymore rumors on the iPhone, but it's harder thank I thought. Everyday a new thing comes out... and there is still a month (or probably more) to go
..when wireless reception is involved. Even the MBP have plastic "windows", or at least they did in the PB days.
For weight, can be lightened up a bit, but I don't really care. If they need to increase the weight to add GPS, 3G, radio, I don't mind as long as it only raises the weight by a few grams.
I would like GPS, 3G, radio (AM, FM, XM & internet) as well as a second camera (both still & video) on the front for video chats & self pictures. I tried taking a picture of me w/ my dog and it was at some weird angle.
