Next Generation iPhone Rumors



the_new_iphone_by_crazyem

AppleiPhoneApps said they had received important messages from internal sources at Apple, for the next model of iPhone. Here’s a whole list of characteristics:

Prize and Models:

  • There will be two models of the iPhone: a 16 GB and another from 32GB. The 8gb model to be no longer marketed.
  • Prices remain the same as the 3G iPhone

Hardware & Design:

  • There will be a 3.2 MegaPixel camera
  • The screen is OLED-type (but not flexible)
  • Given the characteristics of these types of display, the battery will last longer
  • RAM and Process Power will double
  • FM receiver
  • The Apple logo will light up
  • Will add the magnetometer

They also said that the released date will be july 17 2009. I honestly do not think this are news. I think this is only a collection of all the rumors that have arrived in recent days. Obviously take the news as a rumor because it might be true as false.

Next Generation iPhone Component Suppliers



iphone

This is a list of component suppliers for the next-generation iPhone that is rumored to arrive in mid 2009. The component list isn't particularly revealing except it reinforces the rumor that Apple will be using a 3.2 megapixel camera from OmniVision in the next generation iPhone. The current iPhone uses a 2 megapixel camera. The suppliers will begin shipping in May and the first batch is estimated at around 5 million units.

iPhone's Wallpaper with notes and calendar events [AppStore, Free]



iphonepaper

Wallpaper Labeler (AppStore link) and gCalWall Lite (AppStore link) let you add appointments and notes to the home screen. With Wallpaper Labeler, you can enter any text you want to your wallpaper, so you can leave yourself (or whoever finds your phone) notes. The other app, gCalWall, pulls down upcoming appointments from your default Google Calendar and splays them all over your home screen. You have to update it manually, which is kind of a drag, but the dev says that iPhone API won't allow for automatic updating. Both apps are free :-)

In the past you could only use Intelliscreen paid app on a jailbreaked iPhone.

Categories 2.20 - rapid folder opening



Categories updated to 2.20. Here is a changelog:

Launcher: Folders instant loading! Integrated with backgrounder for folders. There is now an option in the settings to "keep resident". When set, the folder only loads once per respring. After that, it stays running in the background (uses no CPU but uses some RAM) to provide instant loading (no load times). Note that this does use more memory so use it sparingly. I suggest that it is ok for 1 - 4 folders but I would not background 20 folders. If you do and have problems, just go back to settings and disable this option on some of the folders you don't use as often.

Sounds like we should use Categories + Backgrounder. In this case folders will open very very quickly.

Avaliable in Cydia Installer.
