On the heels of Apple’s long awaited upgrades to the Macbook Pro line today, iPhone fans may have just as much of a reason to get excited as their Macbook fan counterparts.
Only days removed from the grand reveal of the iPhone 4.0 OS, there is talk that Apple may unveil the 4th generation iPhone two months from now. While sources at Apple would not confirm or deny the speculation, the folks in Cupertino have once again reserved the same conference center in which all other iPhones have been similarly unveiled. The date? June 22nd, 2010.
At present, Apple has nothing to say about the new iPhone, except that the new OS will ship this summer, although a beta for developers is already available. The iPhone 4.0 OS delivers better than 1,500 new APIs, multitasking, a social gaming network, advanced eBook reading attributes, previously unavailable multimedia functionalities, 5x digital zoom, geotagging, and a plethora of bells and whistles that will make the next iPhone the hottest arrival in the smpartphone market this year.
Naturally, with such long awaited features packed into the new iPhone OS (which lacks backwards compatible with previous versions of the iPhone) and the hot new iAd platform on the horizon, Apple’s two biggest products for 2010 (the iPad and 4th gen iPhone) could very well prove to be mobile marketers’ two biggest tools of the trade for the foreseeable future – that is, until Apple releases the next “game changing” gadget.
