iPhone 5 with limited improvements in July 2011

If you go by just expectations alone iPhone 5 is already super hit even before an announcement of the phone from Apple. After the antenna gate of  Apple iPhone 4,  there is a huge expectation on the next version of iPhone, and going by Apple’s plan in the last few years we should have a new release of iPhone in June-July 2011. But then again going by the tone Steve Jobs set in iPad 2 launch we may not see a huge change in hardware from iPhone 4 except  the antenna.

Another question is whether Apple will call the new phone another version of iPhone 4 like 3GS for 3G.  With not many new enhancements a subversion of iPhone 4 will be the correct approach but again they may want to completely forget the iPhone 4 episode and jump to iPhone 5. With the new A5 processor confirmed to be available for next version iPhone, it is most likely to be christened iPhone 5.

Another factor in the recent months is Japan earth quake and Nuclear disaster which could push Apple’s schedule at least by few weeks if not by few months. And Apple’s have said they dont have any roadmaps from Apple for new product line, but again considering that iPhone 5 may not be much different from iPhone 4 and could be a more refined product, the information leak possibility is also reduced.

So lets wait and see if we get to see the new iPhone 5 this summer.

ATT announces Wifi hotspot for Apple iPhone 4 from March 11

ATT has confirmed that after March 11 (iOS update 4.3) iPhones running in ATT network should be able to support wifi tethering and allowing other devices to use ATT network through iPhone as wifi modem.

The addition was expected as Apple announced the same for ipad 2 during its launch. The iOS 4.3 update unlock it for the all the iPhone 4 devices.

Apple iPad 2 Wish (Guess) List

The much anticipated iPad 2  is going be introduced on March 2 at an Apple event,  but there has been several speculations and rumours, starting with delay in production to iOS 5. But lets not get too ambitious on this.

Well one thing which is almost confirmed is the impending announcement about iPad 2 on March 2 event, after the not so obvious invitation sent to journalists last week.

The following are some of the most expected additions/upgrades

– Certainty is an upgraded processor in the lines of iPhone 4 (ARM).
– Higher resolution , but Retina eye display might be a stretch , but lets see if Apple surprises.
– No 7 inch iPad for now.
– Front facing camera
– CDMA addition to support Verizon.

We might get some new features but at the end of the day Apple could just add the Verixzon support and just lay out a
plan for 2011 just like they have mentioned in the invite.
