Ok, Ok... So What About This New Larger iPhone Screen?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 12:00 AM

"Apple is testing multiple next-generation iPhones, and we have independently heard that at least one of these devices sports a brand new display."

I think we have all heard the rumors about a bigger iPhone screen, and it really is picking up steam. Now 9to5Mac has released an article about what they say is bound to happen, and Gruber adds his two cents on how this could happen without materially changing the shape of the iPhone. Of course Gizmodo has their own opinion on it. Regardless of what you think, both are interesting reading. What are your thoughts on a larger iPhone screen? Good? Bad?

Are You Going to Buy an iPhone 5? Strike That, How about iPhone 4S?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 05:00 AM

"According to a study by research group InMobi, 41% of smartphone users in the US, Canada and Mexico are willing to buy a smartphone they have never seen. Yesterday Apple announced its next iPhone event to take place this upcoming Tuesday, and everyone is eagerly awaiting what Apple has up its sleeve."

And over 50% will be buying this beauty, or something like it. Now if you are talking about the 4GS, then that drops quite a bit and I don't blame them. I'll wait for the 5 if they come out with something like a 4GS. My iPhone 4 is pretty good as it is so it will have to be something with quite an upgrade on features for me to bite. What are your thoughts?

Here is Your iPhone 5 Rumor Timeline!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 03:00 AM

"Have you gotten a little confused with the timeline of all of the iPhone 5 rumors? You're not the only one."

Quite the info graphic, that has all the history of the iPhone 5 rumors since October of 2010. It will be interesting, as it always is, to see just how accurate some of these rumors turn out to be tomorrow.

iPhone 5 Commercial From Conan O'Brien

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 07:43 AM

"Conan O'Brien, on his TBS show "Conan," addressed reports that an Apple Inc. engineer last week left a working iPhone 5 prototype in a bar where it promptly disappeared."

Who knew Apple had a torture department?

Verizon Set to Cancel Unlimited Plans for Data

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 07:36 PM

"Verizon CEO Fran Shammo told Reuters today that the carrier's unlimited data plans are no more. Verizon will introduce its new pricing strategy this summer, which will now be based on tiered packages - bad news for data hogs."

Couple interesting things about this announcement. One is that they talked about doing something along the lines of a family plan for data. The bigger thing is they gave details about the iPhone 5 saying "it would be a global phone (which Verizon claimed last month) - that it would operate on CDMA and GSM networks. He also mentioned the handset will launch on Verizon and AT&T at the same time, but couldn't give a definite answer about an LTE-capable iPhone 5. Shammo more or less said when it comes to 4G, the ball's in Apple's court." I'd wager he won't be invited to any Apple events anytime soon.

Will The iPhone 5 Look Like This?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 03:43 PM

"This is my next drops a bombshell, claiming that the next-generation iPhone will not be a minimal departure from the iPhone 4, like others are saying, but will be a completely re-designed phone, as Engadget reported earlier this year."

This from a story at "This is my next..." and I have to admit I kinda like it. We don't get too involved in rumors around here but since it appears the iPhone 5 might not show up until later in the year, it's interesting to see what kind of mock ups are out there and eventually how close they come to the real deal. What are your thoughts, yay or nay?

WWDC 2012? Good Luck Getting a Ticket!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 11:30 AM

"Still trying to gather enough money to attend this year's WWDC event in June? Don't bother, since the event is already sold out, ten hours after tickets went on sale."

Even though announced only a few days ago, the ever popular WWDC has once again sold out. Of course, some people are trying to sell their extra tickets for a premium on eBay, but other than that, I don't know how you would get a ticket to this event. And I'm not sure if Apple is going to stop the eBay stuff from happening but if they don't, I would think they would run into problems in the future from ticket scalpers. But getting back to WWDC, they don't expect an iPhone 5 announcement, which will be odd given that it has happened every year since the first iPhone came out, but they do expect a summary of iOS 5 and OS X Lion features. I don't know, I'm still thinking iPhone 5, what are your thoughts?

iPhone 5 to Have NFC Capability?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 07:00 AM

"Apple's next generation iPhone and iPad will supposedly be "Near Field Communication" (NFC) capable, and could feature a "mobile payment system." This would allow Apple fans to use their iDevice in place of a debit or credit card when paying for goods."

According to Bloomberg that is, but it certainly has merit based on other information out there, such as the NFC expert that Apple hired back in August and subsequent reports on the testing Apple has done with this technology. Google has NFC capability in their Nexus S so it certainly isn't outlandish to think that the next iPhone will have this as well. What are your thoughts? Is this something you look forward to or are you kind of "meh" about it all?
