Apple’s policy to upgrade devices once a year seems also to apply to the iPhone. A new iPhone – 3rd generation – is expected to be released at the end of june/beginning of july.
Rumors are circulating about the following features:
- Developers who are already working with the latest beta version of iPhone OS 3.0 now report new drivers for WLAN chipsets allowing 802.11n connections to access points (according to MacRumors.com)
- Also the camera could get an upgrade to 3.2megapixels as those CMOS image sensors have been ordered in large quantity (according to the asian Digitimes.com)
- A video capture function seems to become integrated (according to EngadgetMobile.com)
- A video editing function might become available (according to austrian Benm.at)
- USB tethering might become available (also according to EngadgetMobile.com)
Will the 3rd gen iPhone be the same success story like the 1st and the 2nd generation? Let’s see.
We are very curious on the battle against the Palm Pre, that has been designed by the former Apple Manager and iPod architect Jon Rubinstein.
