New iPhone 4G: Will 2010 still be the year?

By Peter Chubb - Jan 27, 2010

The Apple event is now over and we are left with some mixed emotions, we are happy that there is the iPad, but disappointed that Steve Jobs did not announce an iPhone 4G. We are left wondering if we will ever see a 4th generation iPhone this year?

There has been so much hype in the build-up to the Apple event; we just wonder how we and so many others got it wrong. However, we have to remember that Apple are experts when it comes to keeping secrets as well as misleading people. Ok so their tablet device was one of the worst kept secrets, but we have been expecting it for the past ten years.

We do wonder how we all got it wrong with the iPhone 4G, there have been numerous reports that the new smartphone would be unveiled today and launched as early as April or May. Although we have said on a number of occasions that we could not see Apple launching two big devices so close to each other.

There is still hope of Apple launching a new iPhone in the summer, but let me tell you why I think we will not see a new one this year. We were told that the iPad would be available outside the U.S. sometime in June, which is very close to when a new iPhone usually gets launched.

The question you have to ask yourself is, would Apple launch the iPad and an iPhone 4G so close to each other?

    Apple always release a new iphnoe model every year , nearly every june or july . I don't think it will be just the year of I pad since it's not a phone !

    Come one guys,do u actually believe that apple will not release a new iphone this year?Look at how the market share of the iphone is dropping day by day…the iphone will soon stop selling point blank if apple doesnt face up to the growing competition.

    After reading the story, I don’t think he said the ipad will be replacing the iPhone, he was saying he don’t think the iPhone4 or what ever it will be called will be out this year giving the fact apple is releasing the ipad sometime this summer.

    faster more powerful iphone with bigger hds? probably. 4g doubthful

    How is that possible? The iPad does not make phone calls and is considerably larger than the iPhone. Therefore, a market exists for both devices.

    you must have fck big pockets mate

  • Please you arent serious the Ipad is sick as it will replace the Iphone its already intergratnig sim cards the days of the iphone will be soon at hand if the Itablet sells highly

      If tgat replaces the iPhone, I’ll eat my pubes. I cant see people wantin to carry their phone in a back pack, we aren’t int eh 80s. The ipad it just a common tablet with a poor operating system.

      @jonty. Are you serious? The iPad as good as it appears will not replace the iPhone. It is way too big. The 3G it mentioned is to make internet/VPN access available to the more traditional notebook users/road warriors away from the office. This looks to be Apples answer to the netbook pc’s. Stylish, powerful, dedicated and compact. But ultimately as limited as the iPhone as it stll uses apps from the AppStore. As much as I like apple this really is just an oversized PDA. I doubt it even has flash for that full Internet experience every iPhone user has been dieing to see for the last 3 years. I personally refuse to be tied to another 24 month contract to get a step up iPhone which is currently on offer. I just hope June holds more hope for iPhone news.

      ….r YOU serious? who the hell wants to carry around a tablet with them everywhere they go? Exactly how convenient would it be to make a call walking down the street with the iPad, even if you were using a headset of some sort? you need a a reality check apple fan boy, a tablet can’t beat a phone in convenience form factor…ever
