Juicy New iPhone Rumors
It's been a while since we've had any truly ambitious iPhone rumors come around the bend. Enter vim3 weblog. The writers there claim that Steve Jobs and Apple have been not only hush-hush about unreleased iPhone features, but have gone as far as to mislead the public in hopes of keeping iPod sales healthy. vim3 states,
"Why would Steve downplay some of the features? Our source says that since the iPhone would be released in June, Apple did not want to affect iPod sales. Apple has not released a new video player version of their iPod since 2005, despite the update to the 5G iPod in 2006."
Included in their list of hidden iPhone features are a user replaceable battery, wireless N support, iTunes media streaming, OTA iTunes downloads. Most importantly, vim3 claims that Apple and Jobs haven't been truthful about the flash memory storage provided by the iPhone (4GB and 8GB models). The blog claims that the iPhone will actually have "substantially larger" storage.
All sound too good to be true? Well ... you know what they say.
