New iPhone 4: UK prices to be announced Monday

It has been almost a week since Steve Jobs announced the new iPhone, and pre-ordering is just a couple of days away. So far we know how much the handset will cost customers in the US, but in the UK all we know so far is the price plans for 02.
But a story by Roland Hutchinson on Geeky-Gadgets.com is reporting that a couple of the network providers will be releasing prices for the iPhone 4 on Monday 14 June. The website contacted all five of the operators who plan to offer the new iPhone with the other three not giving any information.
Its seems to have taken a long time to get any information on pricing plans, that leads to people to think the five operators could have been discussing what to charge. With 02 recently announcing that there will be no more unlimited data in their price plans, we will have to wait and see what the rest of the operators will do.
The hope is that with five different operators now offering the iPhone 4 competition on monthly plans and handset prices will be good. How much movement they have remains to be seen but will hopefully mean some good deals for us the customer.
Are you going to pre-order the iPhone 4 on the June 15? What network do you plan to go with?

New iPhone getting June 7th reveal?

Confirmation that Steve Jobs will host Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 keynote raises hopes.

Apple has confirmed that Steve Jobs himself will be hosting the keynote talk at this year’s Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2010 – raising chances that the gathering will be used to unveil the upcoming iPhone 4.

Though there’s no direct evidence to confirm this, if nothing else we know that a new iPhone is both in development and nearing release.

Early builds of the gadget have in recent weeks been spotted (or ‘acquired’)by both Gizmodo and Vietnamese site Taoviet.

Kicking off on June 7th, WWDC is designed to provide advanced advice for skilled developers across five key technology tracks.

The 5000 attendees will be able to attend sessions in the following tracks: Application Frameworks; Internet & Web; Graphics & Media; Developer Tools; and Core OS.

Will the iPhone 4G ship with OS 3.x?

So far all we have heard regarding the iPhone 4G has been rumors, however we must admit once of the most likely-sounding rumors we have heard suggests that the handset will come with iPhone OS 4.0 as standard, however a article on OzcarGuide suggests that this may not be the case.
According to their article the iPhone 4G may infact come with iPhone OS 3.1.2 as standard, this is because Apple may face an anti-trust inquiry surrounding changes to Apple’s terms of service which are being seen by many as anti-competitive, this could perhaps land Apple in trouble with the U.S. fair trade commission.
Obviously the easiest way for Apple to rectify this would be to modify iPhone OS 4.0 so that it doesn’t bring-on an anti-trust inquiry, however with just a month or so until the expected iPhone 4G launch experts doubt that Apple could make all the necessary changes in time.
If all this turns out to be true we could perhaps see OS 4.0 arrive later than planned, no-doubt if this is the case it will arrive via an over-the-air update, which could perhaps kill the initial buzz surrounding an iPhone 4G launch.
Would you prefer to wait for an iPhone 4G running OS 4.0? Or would you be happy with an iPhone 4G running OS 3.1.2?

New iPhone 4G prototype found lost in a bar!

Apple are renowned for their ability to keep secrets, but that may have all changed!

A report on the popular geek blog website gizmodo reports to have found the a lost iPhone 4G in a bar in Redwood City (California).

The phone itself was cleverly disguised as an iPhone 3G in order to prevent attracting attention.

New Features

  • Front facing camera (as rumoured!)
  • Improved back camera (larger lens)
  • Camera flash (finally!)
  • Micro-SIM rather than a regular SIM card
  • Improved display
  • Secondary mic
  • Split buttons for volume control
  • Power, mute and volume buttons are metalic

Whats Changed

  • The back is flat (unlike the iPhone 3G/S) and made of glass/shiney plastic
  • The screen is smaller but has a higher resolution
  • Everything is square
  • 3 grams heavier
  • 16% larger battery
  • Internal components are smaller

Apparently, the phone was remotely “killed” by Apple one they discovered that it was missing, so Gizmodo were unable to get the phone working.

Leaked photos of the new iPhone 4G

This article is marked as obsolete, see real leaked photos here.

As always, there are many different “mockups” of future Apple products; but the image featured here is supposedly a “leaked” photograph of Apples latest and greatest version of the iPhone (4G: 4th Generation).

Apple have refused to confirm if the image in question is a prototype of the new iPhone 4G, but judging from the brushed metal design of the iPad, it may well be similar in appearance.

The speculation behind the new iPhone will soon be put to rest, since Apple will be revealing it’s creation in June 2010. The release of the iPhone 4.0 SDK last week suggests the new iPhone will feature an 8 megapixel camera, a flash and also a front facing camera for video conferencing.
