Apple has announced a press conference on the 4th of October entitled ‘Let’s talk iPhone’.
At the conference, we’ll almost certainly see a new iPhone being announced, finally putting an end to the recent rumours. It’ll be interesting to see whether the phone is an all new design, which many are expecting given the extended development time, or a simple boost in the iPhone 4’s specifications. At the very least, I’m expecting the Apple A5 processor to appear on the device and also for it to sport a better camera. I’d be surprised if we didn’t see a new antenna design and a 64GB memory offering too.
The countdown begins…
On Vodafone’s web page describing phones compatible with the company’s Sure Signal device, which creates a mini 3G hotspot using a home broadband connection, four separate listings for an iPhone 5 appeared, suggesting the device will be available in both black and white, 16GB and 32GB versions.
What’s interesting is this list also contains the iPhone 4 and 3GS, and the iPhone 5 is listed four separate times, so it can’t simply be a typographical error. However one element is surprising – where’s the 64GB version? It’s hard to believe Apple wouldn’t increase the capacity of the iPhone, especially when 64GB iPod Touches already exist.
