New iPhone Rumors – Here We Go Again

Just found this article about the next version of the iPhone, check out this excerpt:

The new iPhone rumors started in 2008 and began gathering steam after the March 17 release of the iPhone 3.0 software developers kit (SDK), which contained, among other things, configuration files suggesting that the device would have voice controls, a digital compass, an autofocus camera and would be capable of making, editing and sharing video clips.

The next wave hit in mid-April, when Chinese language newspapers 1) reported that Apple had placed orders for 4 million next-generation iPhones and 2) listed purported suppliers for the phone’s chips and key components — including a 3.2 megapixel camera.

A third wave of landed in early May, when someone on a Chinese forum posted what appeared to be an iPhone screen shot with more detailed specs, including:

  • 32 GB of storage (up from a max of 16 GB)
  • a 3.2 megapixel autofocus (as opposed to fixed focus) camera
  • a 600 MHz CPU (up from 400 MHz)
  • 256 MB of RAM (up from 128MB)
  • a digital compass and FM receiver.

Last week saw the publication of the kind of reports that immediately precede a major Apple release: two sets of detailed specs presented as if they were fact.

The first set was leaked to a relatively new site — AppleiPhoneapps.com — by an unnamed source whose credibility the author could not vouch for. The second came from Daring Fireball’s John Gruber — a veteran Apple watcher with one of the best track records in the Valley.
