Hard to compare the MacBook Air marketing strategy and the iPhone 4.The MacBook Air's tapered design is because it's a notebook computer. The thin edge is because all that is there is the keyboard. It widens to the other side to accommodate certain ports (USB, etc.).The iPhone 4 has a different set of design constraints, yet is still the thinnest iPhone from Apple. Apple needs to cram a certain amount of functionality and parts (speakers, headphone jack, etc.) into the...
Nah, the specifications measure the thickest part of the unit.The current iPod touch and iPad are thinner at the center of the back. Apple isn't measuring the beveled edges.Note that both the iPod touch 4 and iPad 2's back are flat surfaces, except for the aforementioned bevels. The iPod touch 4 is different from the third-generation iPod touch, which did have a substantially curved back.
Because some rumors are false and others are true. As a matter of fact, most Apple rumors are false, so whatever you read that didn't emanate from Apple.com is probably wrong. Based on the Apple rumor sites' track records, It is highly likely that the curved iPhone display will not reach market. On a side note, a curved display makes very little sense due to the interactive touchscreen nature of the iPhone. The curved display made more sense for a previous version of...
Nah, other things will come into play before the dock connector: after all the iPod touch is thinner than the iPhone 4, plus the case is beveled meaning there's even more exposure. The dock connector electronics should be pretty nominal. After all, the iPod nano uses the same connector and that device has considerably less real estate.Apple may need to migrate to a smaller audio jack first. The standard 3.5mm jack and internal connectors is basically at the limit on the...
Perhaps the carriers will eventually increase the bandwidth thresholds for each tier.
Both Verizon and AT&T have similar frequencies for 4G LTE, 700MHz. Verizon picked up their spectrum allocation at an FCC auction several years ago. The 700MHz frequencies became available due to the migration from analog to digital television. The other company to purchase significant amounts of 700MHz spectrum was Qualcomm.AT&T subsequently purchased Qualcomm's 700MHz spectrum frequencies.Neither Sprint nor T-Mobile USA have any 700MHz spectrum. Sprint is piggybacking off...
Nah, the point here is that the upcoming iPhone won't have an LTE chip: the handset won't have access to any LTE network from AT&T, Verizon, whatever LTE carrier (it has been deployed in a few countries).
The fifth generation iPhone is supposedly going to be released in September of this year, according to many rumors on the Internet.
It depends on the handset manufacturer and which chipsets they utilize in any given handset. While there may be chipsets that cover CDMA, GSM, UTMS, LTE, etc. there will probably be less expensive chipsets that cover fewer network technologies. It is likely that handset manufacturers will continue to use cheaper chipsets in less expensive handsets that don't have multi-network capabilities in the same way that inexpensive AT&T and T-Mobile USA dumbphones purchased here in...
LTE at this time doesn't make sense. The logical progression would be an iPhone with HSPA+. This technology is well deployed on this planet, and even exists here in the USA (which is the laggard amongst industrialized nations concerning cellular technology). Some markets are actually in their 2nd or 3rd iteration of HSPA+.
