You make it sound like Apple started working on the next iPhone only a few months ago. What I've heard from apple insiders (I mean actual Apple people) is that they start developing an iPhone version more than two years before it's released. That means the iPhone 5S, if that's what it will be called, was in development in the summer of 2011. In the early stages there are probably 6 or more different designs like you say. At this point however they've surely already gone...
The solar panels should be bigger and create a rain umbrella over the charging tables. With the extra power a meak wifi hotspot can be added so while people are waiting around for their phones to charge they can check their email etc. A video camera above to record thefts might also be a good idea.
Agreed. One of the most useful features I've seen that exists on Android (for the area of the world that I live in) is an app that changes the way the phone functions. When a phone number calls that isn't in your contacts, the app will look up the number on the net and display who it is. Someone said that this was easy in Android because the app just takes over some core functionality and does what it needs to do. For security reasons Apple would not allow this but it...
Exactly. You are clueless.
If they can make it thinner, lighter and also significantly trim the side bezels as the rumors are suggesting, that would be quite a feat. It almost seems impossible.
I notice the the side bezel is still wider than on the mini (judging by the home button size) which is probably good because you won't quite be able to hold the bigger iPad in the same way. More thumb room is needed.   My question is what is a "shallow rounded corner"?
What about the general shape of the device? My instinct suggests that the curved back of the original iPhone would tend to make it fall on its back or side. The symetrical front and back of the iPhone 5 combined with a lighter aluminum back and a heavier glass front would tend to make it fall on its face. Also, a lighter and thinner device (i.e. iPhone 5) will fall slower. The iPhone 4 had glass on both sides and fell like a stone.
Ah, but an accessory can be a revolution.
Exactly. I actually tried to use map software on a non-GPS iPad which was tethered to my iPhone. The iPad did not get the accurate GPS location information from the iPhone as I was hoping, rendering the mapping software all but useless on the iPad. I'm going to guess that this feature will be implemented in the next version of iOS.
Finally, competition in the new 8 inch tablet market. The Note 8.0 has a screen area of 28.8 sq.in. The iPad Mini measures at 29.6 sq.in. The Note's dimensions are 210.8 x 135.9 x 7.95 mm. The Mini's dimensions are 200.0 x 134.7 x 7.2 mm. The Note weighs 338 g. while the Mini weighs 308 g. So, the Note is bigger and heavier but has a smaller screen, albeit with higher resolution... for now.
