The buzz on the internet is that Apple is readying its 3G compatible iPhone for a early summer release. Now, these are rumors of course, but like the old iDiom says, “Where there is smoke, there is fire.â€
One rumor, from the research firm Gatner, is reporting that Apple has already ordered a (big) number if iPhone units from manufacturing. By big number, I mean 10 million. These new iPhones are rumored to be 3G data ready and have OLED displays. If you don’t know, the reason behind a lack of 3G in the current iPhone was supposed to be a lack of battery life. OLED display would give the iPhone back some battery juice. This rumor has teeth.
Another rumor, this one from Kevin Rose, states that a “High Levelâ€ (isn’t it always a High Level Person?) person in a partner company to Apple is reporting the 3G iPhone in June. This rumor has the new iPhone sporting both 3G and GPS.
June is looking good with the release of firmware 2.0, 3rd party applications, and the potential of a major hardware revision. I can hardly wait!
