With just one week to go until the Apple Press Event rumors are becoming more frequent, the most popular is that the a new Tablet PC will be unveiled. However, there are those who believe that we could see a new iPhone 4G announced along with iPhone OS 4.0.
The rumor of the Apple Tablet PC device is looking the most likely, but the new 2010 iPhone we are not so sure of. We know that Apple will launch a new iPhone this year, but we cannot see it being this early, past reports have suggested an April or May release, that is two to three months out of cycle.
Much was expected from the iPhone 3GS and its new 3.0 operating system, such as multitasking, but this did not happen. However, according to India.com, the new interface will feature true “multitasking/background running applications” as well as new sync options.
Goldman Sachs’ Robert Chen believes that Apple is putting more into the new iPhone by offering innovation in its hardware and software. The iPhone 4G is rumored to come with a dual core processor, 5-megapixel camera with flash, larger storage, 32GB and 64GB. There were even reports that the back casing will have a touch panel to be used like the Magic Mouse.
Looking at the hardware upgrades the biggest feature would be that new dual core processer; this would make the 1GHz Snapdragon in the Nexus One obsolete.
