This isn’t my scoop. Sadly, I am not that cool to know the people who know things. The fine technology bloggers over at Engadget (They get the photo credit too) are spilling the beans on their source (you know, a guy who knows a guy) that has reportedly handled and used the 2nd generation iPhone that is rumored to come out in a matter of months.
Among other niceties, iPhone 2.0 is reported to:
- will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
- have 3G. And proper GPS!
- be glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
- have a headphone jack that will finally be flush with the body.
Some of the Engadget specifications are not surprising as they have been rumored for a while, others like the GPS and fixed headphone port are just what I am looking for.
Many of the rumors are stating that the $$$$ will be consistent with the current generation models. I sure hope so because I want a new phone and I am all but broke and cannot afford to break the bank on a new one.
Now, I know that Engadget is only spewing rumors, but a June/July release does appear certain. After all, some people are reporting that iPhones, in their current model, have sold out and will not be restocked. Apple, of course, is staying tight lipped and enjoying all of the hub-bub-aloo.
Give us a hint Steve Jobs – anything!
