iPhone 4G Rumors Heat Up

http://www.networkworld.com

It's been less than a year since the iPhone 3GS launched, and the rumor mill is already churning out speculation about an upcoming iPhone 4G, expected as early as May.

New rumors have been circulating over the past couple of days, saying a new Apple iPhone 4G will be available by June, or even as early as May. Besides the earlier-than-expected launch date (new iPhone models traditionally come out in June or July), potential new features are in discussion as well, such as a better camera, an OLED screen, a removable battery, and different casing.

A Bloomberg/BusinessWeek report quotes an analyst from the Goldman Sachs Group saying the iPhone 4G would have a better camera than the 3-megapixel shooter found on the iPhone 3GS. The iPhone 4G's camera could offer up to 5 megapixels, which would put it on the par with the camera in Google's Nexus One.

The story also speculates that Apple is working on an updated version of the iPhone OS with an overhauled App Store.

iPhone 4G To Feature Touch Sensitive Casing?

http://techgeer.com

It seems the rumors surrounding Apple products just won’t stop. Most of the rumors surround Apple’s upcoming tablet or iPhone 4G, and that date, it’s the iPhone 4G. The latest rumor hints that Apple might be working some of its magic on the iPhone’s casing, possibly giving it a touch-sensitive case, similar to the case that the Apple Magic Mouse has. It will certainly be an interesting whether that is true, though it does build you wonder what will happen to the sales of those third-party iPhone protector casings, wouldn’t they end up preventing the touch-sensitive casing from being used?

Apple source calls the Tablet an "iPhone on steroids"

http://www.techdigest.tv

When it comes to rumours, Boy Genius Report always seem to have some great, reliable sources. I'm not sure where they've picked these sneaky contacts up, but I sure wouldn't mind flicking through their phone book! The latest leak they've picked up on comes from an Apple connect that they say has never "steered us wrong".

Here's the low-down on the fresh details they've acquired.
It's powered by an incredibly fast ARM CPU
The tablet's multi-touch gestures are "out of control."
It runs on the iPhone kernel.
The internal model number is K48AP.
There hasn't been an updated iPhone OS build because there's too much tablet-related code/references in the OS and Apple obviously didn't want that to leak. Oh dear.
The tablet is basically an "iPhone on steroids."

So there you have it. Or at least the rumour concerning whatever "it" turns out to be. An iPhone on steroids? Not sure that's enough for me to be honest. I was expecting the next iPhone to be an iPhone on steroids, I wanted this one to be a tablet on steroids!

Still, rumour and speculation only at this point. Until the end of the month at least, anyway.

iPhone app proves users are willing to pay

http://www.guardian.co.uk

UK's first official paid-for news application has been downloaded almost 70,000 times in its first month.Are people willing to pay for a news app on their iPhone? In the UK, news organisations have been sceptical, and offered their applications for free, among them Sky News, whose app launched in May and has just passed 1m downloads.

iPhone apps from the Financial Times, the Telegraph and the Independent are all free, with the Indy saying its application has been downloaded 59,000 times since its launch last August.

However, figures released today prove that iPhone users are willing to pay for the Guardian app: it has been downloaded almost 70,000 times in its first month, and is currently at number 26 in Apple's UK App Store chart.

Although it costs £2.39, it has been downloaded exactly 68,979 times since its launch on 14 December. It was originally only available in the UK, Ireland and the US, but now launched in most European countries, as well as Australia, Canada and the US.

The Guardian iPhone app sees 70k downloads but how will it pay its way in the future?

http://eu.techcrunch.com

[UK] We knew it was sitting pretty at the top of the paid news chart in the UK but now The Guardian newspaper has revealed that its iPhone app has seen 70,000 downloads in its first month.

Initially launched on the 14th of December 2009 and available in the UK, Ireland and US, the app has since extended its distribution to also include most European countries, as well as Australia and Canada. With much wider circulation, expect sales (and revenue) to remain strong.

That said, the app represents a one-off payment and it’s not yet known how the newspaper plans to make revenue sustainable.

A quick back of the envelope calculation suggests that revenue generated by The Guardian’s iPhone app could be in the region of £117,110 in month one, based on the app selling for £2.39 – although pricing varies across currencies – and Apple taking its standard 30% cut.

We hear that the going rate for iPhone app development in the UK can be as little as £10,000, which if true would – superficially at least – present a very healthy margin.
