No iPhone5. Let’s stop with numbers; like the iPad’s third generation, Apple decided to make a little revolution: no numbers for new devices: only Apple iPhone.
The first device was only “The iPhone” and then started the sequence: 3G, 3GS, 4 and 4S once per year. Rumors about the name were sure that the next one will be iPhone 5, but Apple looks tired about this of the numbering and prefers to give the new device a completely new, calling the next one, only Apple iPhone. The same is about for the new McBook: new technology but old name.
This is not an Apple’s idea, infact the same thing often happens with the automakers, which sometimes offer the restyling of their most famous cars, without changing the original name.
In those last month we red some rumors, sometimes very strange, but many of them agree on 4-inch display in 16:9, the combined use of sophisticated materials such as glass and aluminum and the introduction of a quad-core processor performance without equal. Missing, however, evidence to confirm this: or, rather, were missing until a few days ago, until one of the bloggers site iLab Japanese Factory has decided to publish a series of shots and a movie, depicting the assembly process smartphone.
The rumor comes from Japan and not from China or Taiwan, countries where they are typically produced all these devices, but the forms, the space for the new 19-pin connector and the size of the display look just the right ones. Most skeptics have, however, highlighted a couple of quirks in the photos, like the steel frame and the slight difference that separates it from the screen, which seem so out of line with the classic Apple design.
The real coup de théâtre, having us believe, for months, that the presentation would take place with the commemoration of Steve Jobs, now seems determined, however, that the presentation will advance to the next September 12 and the new device will be sold at distance of only nine days, or by September 21.
