    Arrow [Fact/Rumor] 2nd Gen(3G) iPhone

    Information confirmed about the new iPhone and rumored.

    What is 3G?

    The 3G iPhone will support an Infineon-based S-GOLD3H 3G chip that will enable HSDPA speeds up to 7.2Mbps (not US confirmed) apart from the current 2.5G iPhone.

    Fact/Rumor

    Fact - Mossberg had stated that a 3G version of the current iPhone will be available in about 60 days and later withdrew his statement.

    Fact - A shortage in current first gen. iPhones makes an indication however it was reported Apple made a 10 million stock transaction with Taiwan Company Hon Hai (Foxconn.)

    Rumor - The new iPhone will introduce a slightly thicker casing then the current, contain a real GPS interface, self facing video call camera, and more practical "plasticy" gloss case such as first gen iPods. These were all stated but never confirmed by trusted sources.

    Fact - After examining the latest beta software 2.0 provided to SDK developers hidden in the ISPW was a GPS file, a Bluetooth file, and a 3G file witch was executed by one developer to reveal a switch to manipulate the 3G state.

    Fact - Apple executive Gene Munster in an unusually cautious (for him) research note on Tuesday advised investors to keep their expectations for the capabilities of the 3G iPhone “in check.” He said the phone is likely to be nearly identical to the current iPhone in form and function.

    Rumor - AT&T's listing a new iPhone model, called the iPhone Black, on its account management site. This was later removed a stated to be a place holder on the website.

    Fact - An internal memo within AT&T has surfaced stating retail employees won’t be allowed to take vacations from June 15 to July 12 because of a “special summertime promotion.”

    Fact - (5/21/08) With all focus on the 3G iPhone no one stopped to think AT&T was not capable of supporting such speeds. AT&T has now revealed that "in the next month, the company will deploy High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA) technology in the six remaining markets across AT&T's entire 3G (third-generation) wireless broadband network."

    Fact - (5/23/08) Telstra CEO, Sol Trujillo confirms the new 3G iPhone will reach speeds up 10 42Mbps. Currently, next G customers are able to achieve speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps. “We have an evolution roadmap with Ericsson which will deliver customers speeds of 21 Mbps in 2008 across our national Next G network - a world first - and 42 Mbps in 2009 using HSPA+ technology. Our partnership with Ericsson continues to break the speed barrier,” Trujillo said.

    Rumor - (5/24/04) Multiple containers of what were marked as “electric computers,” to Apple, Inc arrived in the US and Canada bound. Neither Apple, Quanta, nor any other company has ever used this product description for any shipments to the U.S as they have used "Desktop Computers" for such hardware. Speculation is that these are the long awaited 3G iPhones stated if so 44,000 are able to fit in each container.


    Release

    As we draw near whats rumored to be the 3G iPhones release, Gizmodo has recently confirmed the rumors by saying “someone very, very close to the 3G iPhone launch has told me that Apple will announce their new model at the WWDC Keynote on June 9th.”

    Official release date has yet to be confirmed.

    Retail Price

    AT&T's CFO stated recently that no pricing has been set for the upcoming 3G iPhone

    Pictures

    Rumor - Untill a photo of the second generation iPhone is release by Apple itself all photos are tentative if not completely ridiculous. These are photos rumored to be off the new device.












    More information will be added upon news release......

    Great post. Just to clarify, the evidence found in the 2.0 beta firmware made no mention of improved bluetooth, and the only indicator that GPS might be coming was a switch named "Location Services" which could easily just mean cell tower triangulation (and making that info available to 3rd party apps).

    Inside the latest ISPW beta is "HeadsetBT", "HeadphonesBT", "RoleA2DP" , and "RoleGPS". The name headset and headphones hopefully imply an integrated version and as far role GPS that isnt present in current firmwares but who knows? thanks anyway

    Apple News | 3G iPhone to Reach Speeds of 42Mbps on Telstra?
    Friday, 23rd May 2008, 10:05 am
    Telstra CEO, Sol Trujillo, has announced that network speeds will be super-charged to 21 Mbps in 2008, with further plans to double the figure to 42Mbps sometime in 2009.

    Currently, next G customers are able to achieve speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps.

    “We have an evolution roadmap with Ericsson which will deliver customers speeds of 21 Mbps in 2008 across our national Next G network - a world first - and 42 Mbps in 2009 using HSPA+ technology. Our partnership with Ericsson continues to break the speed barrier,” Trujillo said.

    An anonymous official has told ChannelNews that the phone will "by Xmas" support the planned upgrade to the advanced HSPA+ wireless standard on Telstra's 3G network. This will help drive sales since network speeds will be faster than many fixed-line broadband services, the executive asserts.

    AT&T's mobility chief Ralph de la Vega has said that their company's HSPA network will be improved from the theoretical peak downloads of 3.6 megabits per second to about 20 megabits per second in 2009.
