The New iPhone And WWDC10

WWDC10

*Update: Cupidtino just Tweeted – “’twas the night before WWDC, and the new iPhone launch….”. Further confirming the iPhone launch!

Monday it is rumored that the new iPhone will be announced by Steve Jobs at the WWDC10. There are some other rumors that the iPhone will be available on Monday which was leaked. Another rumor has a June 18th release date.

The iPhone HD or whatever it will be called should make an appearance. If it doesn’t many Apple fans will be let down. I am hoping for a larger screen like on the EVO. It may be awkward to hold but it is better for browsing and typing on the keyboard.

At the Google I/O, Google pulled an Oprah moment and gave all of their audience (developers) a free Nexus One and an EVO 4G before it was available to the public. My belief is that Apple will try to one up Google and give the new iPhone to their audience along with another new gadget. To compete with Google they will probably hand out other great freebies.  What about a new iPod Touch HD?

Expected Keynotes And Announcements

Many believe the following will be announced Monday and let’s hope they are right.

  • Safari 5
  • Mac OS 10.7
  • OS 4
  • Free MobileMe
  • Apple TV
  • New iPhone
  • iTunes.com
  • iPad OS update
  • New iPod (My guess)
  • iPad with OLED and Camera (Me hoping)

Apple is expected to announce a new Apple TV which will be similar or even better than Google TV. The OS 4 is older news and we already know most of the details already. Safari 5 may make an appearance. Mac OS 10.7 is also highly anticipated.There may be some improvements and added functions to the OS.

I am expecting a new iPod to keep up with Zune and other companies that seem to be pushing the envelope. Apple never backs down to a challenge and they always seem to one up the competition. My guess is maybe a bigger HD screen and more storage?

I am excited about the WWDC10. I was hoping to go but it was sold out before I could buy a ticket. I will be buying the new iPhone when it is released. I am also hoping they will announce a new iPad with a camera and an OLED screen. I will buy that one!

The iPhone HD

The new iPhone will have a new design as we have seen many times. The iPhone is being called the 4G  but it will continue to run on the 3G network. AT&T is testing a new 4g network and it won’t be release for a while.

The new iPhone will be faster. Have you seen the EVO in action? You tap an application and before you remove your finger the app is displayed. Let’s hope that is how the new iPhone will run.

Expected new iPhone features

  • Tethering
  • Front facing camera (view, record and share in HD)
  • New Display (960×640-pixel resolution)
  • Battery (better battery life)
  • Processor (a faster processor similar to the iPad A4 chip)
  • In the Cloud (for music on iTunes.com)
  • OS 4 (multi-tasking, home screen folders, unified email in-box, 5x zoom camera and 100’s of other new features)

There is a picture (below) that names the iPhone the iPhone HD.

“smarter, better, faster”

There are a lot of guesses and rumors on the new iPhone’s name. I believe it will be called the iPhone HD. I’m also going with the iPhone 4 HD. They may pull a HTC and name it something like “iPhone Amazing” or “iPhone Brilliant”. What do you think the new name will be?
