Last-minute rumor: iPhone 3GS with longer battery life at WWDC - Page 3

They should call it iPhone without any additions.

This will still just be an 'iPhone' but consumers should have easy access to a more detailed model number or name to help diagnostics. I used to spend a lot of time over in Apple's iMac forums and it's a real pain explaining to everyone that their new iMac isn't an 'iMac (Flat Panel)'. Apple must have known when they release the iPhone 3G that it wasn't going to be their only 3G iPhone.

I have often thought that the black area around the iPhone/iPod touch screen would be idea for solar panels - they certainly won't provide power for HD video but who knows after a few minutes in the sun they might allow you to make that one 999 (911) call.

EDIT; Spooling and grammar.

Does anyone know if this level of battery life improvement would be consistent with the adoption of an OLED screen?

(Which, according to my understanding, is more power efficient.)

Apple has a patent on solar panels actually built *into* the LCD screen. Or something like that. The technology is almost there...

Check out konarka.com. Maybe not embedded in the LCD yet but they have some interesting stuff...?

I have been mostly a "silent" visitor of AI but I have to say that I am very excited with the WWDC and the probably announcement of a new iPhone. I have been thinking of acquiring one but until now haven't done it. I am disappointed with my Nokia and I think it is time for something new and fresh. It is a great experience to come here and read about all the owners experience and their thoughts, but I find it disturbing the constant bickering and arguing about what is the best phone and what is not. Can't we all just get along and enjoy the gadgets what each one has decided to buy? If it suits your purposes, excellent! Use it, enjoy it and share your experiences with others, if not, just move on..

2009 seems to be a very good year to be a tech or gadget fan. With all the competition going on, iPhone, Pre, Windows 7, Snow Leopard.. I consider myself very lucky to be living in such times and hope that the competition keeps squeezing the best out of each company to be delivered to us, consumers..

I would say I'm not a big gadget fan but am a bit of hardware enthusiast. Gadget wise as long as I got my iPhone3G, MacBook, I'm set.

2009 was a good year to get into PC hardware. I also built my PC ~ ATI 4830 512MB, AMD Athlon Kuma 2.7ghz OC'ed 3ghz. Some great bang-for-buck.

Only thing I'd really like is a 23" at work and 23" at home, then run my MacBook in clamshell mode. But 23" is too big for gaming.

I don't care about any new features. I'm simply ecstatic about the possibility of having better battery life.

While that's all well and good, you wouldn't even have that issue if the battery were swappable.

Please announce the tablet @ WWDC- the iPhone battery life is rather tired.

15" Anti-Glare Macbook Pro!!

Four cores and BlueRay would be nice touch.
The danger is that we sleepwalk into a world where cabals of corporations control not only the mainstream devices and the software on them, but also the entire ecosystem of online services around...

Anything but a longer battery life for the iPhone- how boring is that?

She is 19yo, so I guess Nvidia just scrapes by as being a pervert. Is she known as being mean in real life or is it her Hermione character that is a little standoffish?

Hasn't the removable battery argument gotten old?

I have never know anyone who carries a second battery around with them.
Battery life of one battery is more important then the ability to change them out.
Recharge speed is also important, when my phone is low i will change it for 20 min in a pinch and that will get me a few more hours of use.

If the need of a second battery is so important get one of those add on things, that use the double AA's

I am hoping to see some cool tech with the screen. I think it would be cool if they use that multi-layer display approach.

Download the fun apps you want. I use VersionTracker for many of app searches.

It is old and you mention the external packs off a lot more versatility than replacing the internal battery. One of the biggest one is being able to charge the internal and external at the same time if both are low in power.

Why don't you just carry a whole power generator around with you then?

I like this idea; very practical.

I often think it's funny, given that Apple is so fantastic at design, (and they are) that at the same time they seem to miss things like this that would actually be a great benefit to the end user.

For instance, an iPhone that you could (accidentally) drop in a toilet or use in the rain would be a far bigger improvement to the daily lives of the average iPhone user than slightly longer battery life. At Apple headquarters in California it hardly rains at all, but where I live it rains almost every day. I don't think this basic fact has occurred to the Apple engineers yet.

Also, if instead of being the precious jewel it is now and requiring a tiny perfect special case to keep it safe, the iPhone was rugged enough to just toss around like a regular cell phone, or even be sat on (inadvertently) a lot of people's lives would be made much easier overnight.

I think Apple's design team could benefit from going to an actual working-class person's house (some of them must have poor "friends of friends" or something), to see how real people use their phones day to day and what the actual design problems are. When you don't have a butler to hold an umbrella over you or a Mercedes waiting at the curb (or even a car), the problems you face are slightly different.

Or if you turn off 3G. No one buys extra batteries for their cell phones and carries them around even if the batteries are swappable. Since you don't even own an iPhone, you are talking out of your ***.EDIT:

If you gave someone the choice of the exact same battery with the otion of either having it sealed or replaceable most would choose the latter. SO the issue is not old. The arguement on here to support a sealed battery is just tired. It's strictly a fanboy mentality.

Hello- I own a phone, a camera , and a video camera- all of which have swappable batteries. Therefore I know of what I speak. You can put your iPhone back where it belongs now- -OUCH!.

A quote from a teen site ( I only looked this up because I forgot who she was when he mentioned her name:

Quote:
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and the rest of the cast are a dream to work with, said the source Wednesday, But Emma is even more moody than usual. Shes always complaining, showing up late and has upset both cast and crew members with her rudeness. Shes really become a big diva. Everyones sick of it.
