July 17th to see new iPhone

$199 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 32GB version


It seems that every couple of months we don’t even need to try to crank up the “speculation machine,” as our friends of the cult of Apple run to us with the news of what might be with the next generation iPhone.

Just to recap what we know so far is that it will include a more powerful processor and it will only arrive in 16GB and a 32GB version, and in addition double the amount of local RAM is being added. The 3.2 megapixel camera that will be included this time around will be able to do video recording, which is new. Full MMS support for both video as well as pictures this time around will finally be reality.

You will be able to enjoy the video on an OLED screen that will sip less battery power, leading to an increase in battery life of about 1.5 times what previous models have offered. Some sources are suggesting that the latest revision will include a built-in FM transmitter, but we have not been able to get more confirmation of this claim.

The design of the actual housing will undergo several enhancements, including the disappearance of the metal band that has surrounded the phone in previous versions. The back will be of a rubber-tread design, and several of our sources insist that the Apple logo on the back of the new iPhone will glow. The revisions will lead to a sleeker and more streamlined design.

From what we hear the GPS is a ‘go’ this time around and it will offer a turn by turn application for directions. Google map technology is used to identify locations from photos and to provide the user with more information about a location from the photo. The compass technology that everyone seems to be talking about lately will appear in this version.

So, if you like what you see here, we are told that it will be launched on July 17th at $199 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 32GB version with a two-year contract. We will continue to monitor our sources for more updates, but we do think at these price points that some of this could be nothing more than hopeful speculation; however, we think a lot of what they are saying at this point is accurate. Only time will tell.
