Yet more evidence of 4-inch display on iPhone 5; plus HD front camera

image

A market analyst with sources "deep within Apple's supply chain" is saying that the iPhone 5 will have a 4-inch display. The resolution will be 1,136x 640, and the aspect ratio will be 16:9, as on a widescreen TV. This compares to the earlier iPhone's 3-5-inch screen and 4:3 aspect ratio. Why 4 inches? More screen space, he says, enhances the user's experience, including being more naturally suited to watching movies. But it's not so much larger that it interferes with one-handed operation or increases battery life. Plus, by simply making the iPhone taller, app developers won't necessarily have to redesign their apps for the larger space. There would simply be some blank space at the top and bottom of the app.

Video on Japanese site offers more evidence for 4-inch screen on iPhone 5

image

The iPhone 5 apparently won't be announced until September or October, but evidence continues to mount that suggests it will have a 4-inch display. Now a video has been posted on a Japanese website showing a front panel for the new iPhone and comparing it with that of a current iPhone. It gives you a clear picture of how much taller the new phone will be. Of course, we don't know if this is a legitimate front panel, and even if it is, we don't know whether Apple will come out with this form factor or some other one that they might be working on.

Apple CEO Tim Cook says "incredible" products coming

image

The blogs are buzzing about Apple CEO Tim Cook's speech yesterday at All Things Digital. As usual, he was circumspect about new products but did say, “The juices are flowing, and we have some incredible things coming out." He was asked specifically about an Apple TV set, and he said that it's an "area of intense interest" for Apple and that the company is "going to keep pulling the string and see where this takes us." One interesting point was that he said that the "S" in "iPhone 4S" stands for "Siri." And perhaps the biggest news is that Apple is just getting started with Siri.
