Next generation iPhone is fast approaching
Apple has confirmed that the next generation iPhone will be announced next Wednesday at 1pm EST. Interestingly, the number "5" is shown prominently even though this would mark the sixth generation iPhone.
Considering that the third generation iPad was called the "
", we were expecting the next generation iPhone to simply be called the "New iPhone".
Regardless of whatever the new iPhone is called, it's widely expected that the new iPhone will feature a
4" (640x1136) display
, unibody construction,
a smaller dock connector
, and a thinner profile.

No phone has a 1920x1080 display. And likely never will. Because it'd be useless. 1280x720 for a 4-5" phone is quite enough.

Didn't mean to give the impression that they should, hehe..
By HD, I'm following the standard that includes anything that has a vertical resolution of 720p or up (and mostly only useful for marketing rather than function, admittedly). I just thought it was funny that an iPhone can record 1080p and is completely capable of playing it back, though can barely display 35% of the actual resolution (1126x640 vs 1920x1080.. I did the math).

The problem I have with the iPhone, and will appearantly continue to have with the iPhone, is that the screen is just too small to type on. Since there is virtually no added width to the 4" screen, this isn't going to be improved with the 6th generation iPhone.
For Apple, this is embarassing. Almost as embarassing as trying to fill these shortcomings of an untypable screen with Siri trying to save you the trouble.
If RIM hadn't fallen so far behind with BBOS, the combination of the keyboard and touch-screen on the Torch could have been amazing. I love candybar sliders like that. Hell, I still used a Palm Pre (actually Veer 4G) until just a few months ago just because of the slider keyboard!
Landscape sliders don't have the same magic because you need to rotate the phone and use two hands. At that point, you might as well just type landscape on the screen...
