Rumor: 'iPhone HD' coming this summer Early this morning, the WSJ revealed that a new Apple iPhone was coming this summer, although they had very scarce details.
Says the article: "Apple plans to release a new version of its current iPhone this summer, continuing its practice of annual upgrades at about the same time of year, said people briefed on the matter. The model is likely to be thinner and have a faster processor, two people familiar with the device said."

Later in the day, John Gruber of DaringFireball revealed some specs for the upcoming "iPhone HD," which should see launch in the summer.

Says Gruber: "And they have no actual details of the next-generation iPhone. Nothing. Not the A4-family CPU system-on-a-chip. Not the 960 × 640 double-resolution display. Not the second front-facing camera. Not even the third-party multitasking in iPhone OS 4. All they have is that there’s going to be a new iPhone this summer, period."

The iPhone HD rumor mill has begun.

I'm sure "newer" rumors may be more reliable than past ones, since it's getting closer to the release date, but then again, it's just rumors. Although, knowing Apple, if all they do is give a higher resolution and a better processor, I wouldn't be surprised if that's ALL they will do.

on the upside this is great for anyone who hasnt bought any of the last three generations of the iphone (starting with the original and culminating with the current 3GS),so instead of buying one ,ill hold on to the ipod touch i won a month ago until the 4th generation is released ^^

Better yet, you could just wait for the 5th, then the 6th, then the 7th...and you might be lucky enough to avoid the iPhone all together!

Time to start some rumors!!!

It will come with two lasers, one for each eye, and it will shoot these lasers into your eyes so that they act like polarizing glasses for 3D.

It will have the screen from the iPad, but it will be a 120hz version capable of 3D with polarized glasses/pupils.

It will have a "hover" function...so if you drop it, it will stop before it hits the floor and breaks.

Apple is working with GeoHot to ensure it is jailbroken on the first day; as even Apple knows that no one wants an iPhone that is not jailbroken.

It will still be limited to one provider, but this time it will be T-Mobile.

While it will claim to be "HD", the resolution will be less than that of a DVD, and it will not have a hard drive.

It will not have any SD or MicroSD card slots (not even behind the battery). They will offer SD and USB adapters that many will buy, but no one will ever carry around with them.
