iPhone 3G thinner and with GPS?
The new iPhone will be 22% thinner than the current one and will have significantly longer battery life than the Edge model. This is what Leander Kahney, author of the well-known blog The Cult of Mac, would have learned from a primary developer who had access to the specifications of the new phone.
Kahney, a reliable source for the pawns on which it counts in the Mac world, in addition to a reduced thickness (which on balance should bring the iPhone around 9 millimeters) and the long battery life (two elements in apparent contrast seen if you It is assumed that the phone will be 3G as third generation telephony absorbs more current and requires a larger battery and therefore a cell phone more often), Kahney also mentions a GPS chip and a doubling of the memory, brought respectively to 16 and 32 GB depending on the models.
The author of the blog also claims that the developer would have received confirmation that the new generation iPhone will be offered by subsidized mobile operators. This is to better compete with the Blackberry which is practically offered on all markets at a reduced price if included in a commercial offer that binds the customer for two years.
Needless to say, as Kahney himself notes, what has not been said that reality is also reflected in Apple's habit of spreading untrue news to confuse the waters to journalists chasing scoops and competitors.
