Since the news broke yesterday over what is thought to be the first genuine 2010 model of the iPhone, there have been a number of arguments. Some of those were about Gizmodo who leaked the iPhone 4G / HD / Pro / 3GS-2 or whatever you want to call it. However, let us look at the lighter side of things- how the specs of this rumored concept phone compares to the HTC EVO 4G?
The screen on the EVO is 4.3-inches, whereas the screen on the 2010 iPhone is now smaller than the current iPhone 3GS. The HTC handset will run on Android 2.1, the iPhone will come with the new iPhone OS 4.0, which will come with more than 100 new features.
There is no news what processor Apple will use in the new iPhone, recent rumors suggest the one that is used for the ipad – but will be slowed down to conserve battery life. Speaking of the battery, the 2010 iPhone will have a 16 percent larger battery for increased performance.
The 1GHz Snapdragon CPU will run the show on the EVO, and we know that battery life will be much better than the current iPhone. This handset will also come with an 8-megapixel camera and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camera. The iPhone 4G could have the same setup, but with a 5-megapixel camera instead.
On paper the two handset look to be on the same level, but the details will be in the software, but the iPhone will still have the advantage of the App Store. However, the HTC EVO 4G has the advantage of offering full 4G support.
Are you bothered if a device supports 4G wireless in 2010?
