New iPhone 4G Delay: Androids and Low Expectations Blamed

By Peter Chubb - Mar 29, 2010

Rumors are surfacing that the release of the new iPhone 4G could be delayed, and is being blamed by the onslaught of Androids and low expectations. The recent announcement of a new range of Google Android handsets – such as the HTC EVO 4G has not done the 2010 iPhone any favors.

There is now a worry that the iPhone 4G will not be able to live up to its high expectations – rumors suggest that Apple has shelved its current plans of its smartphone and started work on a newer better design – in looks and hardware.

We know that the iPhone 4G will not be capable of offering 4G speeds; this is because AT&T do not have the facilities in place at he moment. The 4G was meant to stand for the 4th-generation of the Apple iPhone.

There are also worries that the new iPhone would not come with Samsung’s AMOLED display, as they have extended their contract with LG. OzCarGuide is not certain if the LG screens will be as good as Samsung’s – if not then we will not be able to look forward to HD quality.

Do you believe these latest round of rumors, or is it just another story to try and build the anticipation up?

    Hi i think its better for an apple to come up with 1ghz processor, multitask option with 5mega pixel and dual led flash. Furthermore to attract more customers they can put free navigation with guide this will be a vise step from them if they will do it.

    Well regardless they will have to catch up. We've got a lot of handsets pushing 5MP cameras minimum 1GHz Processors, Flash, eventually Sliver light (to a lesser extent) Free navigation systems (Nokia and android) Iphone just doesn't have that wow factor and Apple's usual stance of a slight incremental upgrade just didn't work this time around

    Maybe it’s like Sony with their PS3…. Microsoft released the 360 despite having problems so Sony decided to do proper testing etc. to give the public a proper machine….. Hmmm, still didn’t stop it having problems though.

    I think they should concentrate on putting a flash onto it next and they have to release the next ones with HD Quality, otherwise they’ll be playing catchup. I mean there are others out there with HD quality and if Apple don’t get it sorted, I think they’ll still be popular but could lose out in the long run.
