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.

RE: Still no HD..?

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...
