    Came across this very interesting article on PCM, a next generation memory that could be used in the iPhone 5. Sounds exciting and could be one of the standout features of the new phone.

    Also interesting is the author's opinion that Apple intended to release this phone last year.

    Any thoughts or has anyone heard of this tech before?

    Don't believe

    anything like this...

    Apple rarely ventures into something totally new when it comes to hardware. Very rare means it is possible but unlikely!

    Apple rarely ventures into new hardware?

    They were one of the first with USB, one of the first with FireWire, one of the first with Thunderbolt, one of the first with high dpi phone screens...

    That's a ridiculous statement. They're just picky about what they actually do choose.

    That's why they were a year late to the LTE game right? And why the i5 will have an outdated, modified A5X processor right? Just saying, they make quality products, but please they have been known to pack lower-end specs in the iPhone while still charging a premium price. Not dissing the iPhone, because it's a classic, great device, but please, the hardware is outdated and still will be in the i5.

    Umm yea it is actually buddy - it's based off old A9 technology... most manufacturers are moving on to S4 (Krait based off of A15) or quad core A9.

    another nugget of wisdom from honeygirl, like nearly every other post...

    -Well, nothing is certain at this point.
    -More than a third of consumers plan iPhone 5 purchase.
    -For me, I have enough money to buy iphone 5 , then i will do.
    -is it really? noboday can make sure the truth.
    -all are not sure so far. may be it is ture or rumor.
    -Galaxy S3 screen is bigger than iphone's.
    -the iphone 5 has not release so far, anything are not sure.

    The slightly larger battery can be explained by its increased voltage, the lower-powered wifi chip, IGZO screen, and qualcomm's lower-powered LTE chip.

    I also don't buy his argument that the 4S was a "stopgap," as it featured completely revised internals. (And if the 4S really was pushed to October because engineers had to "scramble," why didn't we see the iPhone 5 this past June, over a year late?

    The tech sounds exciting, but not this year.

    From what I've seen the last couple years apple HAS been behind in tech. I know they like to stick with what works but if their new phone is only taller not wider it will look funny. Other manufacturers have really been putting out products. Some of them are way too big but typing this on my 4s after looking at my buddies GS3 I can say my screen looks like a baby. But I am content right now. Who knows how I will feel once I get my hands on it but where are all the posters that said apple WON'T make a iPhone with a bigger screen? Looks like they are in hiding. Lol
