iPhone Rumors: 3G iPhone Photos


There have been quite a few photos claiming to be those of the soon-to-be-released 3G iPhone.

Since the launch of the next generation iPhone is speculated to be as early as next week by Steve Jobs at the WWDC 2008 Keynote I thought it was about time to join the rumor mill and get your reactions on the 3G iPhone photos.

The rumor mill has been working overtime with regards to 3G iPhone which is imminent.

It all started with iPodObserver posting an image (seen below) of what they claimed was the 3G iPhone but was later revealed to be nothing more than a 3rd party "protection case" for the iPhone.

We then had another set of leaked photos of the next generation iPhone posted by iPhoneClub.nl which depict a white iPhone with a curved back just like the ones seen with the initial rumor.

Then last week MacNN published photos from iDealsChina claiming to be case moldings from Griffin Technology for the upcoming 3G-capable iPhone. The photos of the moldings again revealed the same tapered shape like the earlier two rumors.

We also had a company called XSKN that had revealed a case design of the 3G iPhone as can be seen below (in comparison to the original iPhone case).

And today another photo of the 3G iPhone was revealed by JSN1 a respected member of the “Hackintosh” forums who claims to have taken it at the 5th Avenue Apple Store in Manhattan where apparently the ad for the new iPhone was being sot. As you can see from the screenshot below.

Frankly, I would like to see Apple launch a radically different iPhone rather than just a simple facelift with a more features (it reminds me of a car company trying to extend the life of a model with facelifts and new engine).

I would also be surprised to see just one iPhone model (and that too with just a facelight) as in my opinion if you building a mobile phone business, having just one model not only seems too limited but also too risky.

So what do you think?

    i think they will be just fine… Apple has been doing this for some time now, it will be AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!

  • As I said a few times before…
    Apple has filed multiple patents going from remote charging of a device towards remote syncing of two devices.
    Also have they filed a patent about a LCD screen that can also capture images due to an extra transistor per pixel.

    So, instead of adding holes into the device, it will be slick and dust will no longer be an issue.
    If they have completed the design-pattern they are patenting, the new iPhone will have no front-camera, but the screen itself will capture your face during video-chat. And there will be no buttons at all.
    This all can make the new iPhone vacuum and therefore water-resistant.
    Ow, yes, except for the audio-jack and the speaker off course.
    But I think you get my point 😉

    Give me that buttonless phone that charges and synchronizes by leaving it close to a connector-less dock!!! 🙂

    Apple won't go back to glossy white. Its outdated.

    "Frankly, I would like to see Apple launch a radically different iPhone rather than just a simple facelift with a more features"

    Why the hell would you want that? Its only been 1 year. Its not like theyre exagerating. Why try to fix something thats already sexy. imo the iPhone is perfect on the outside. It just needs all the missing features.

    "Give me that buttonless phone that charges and synchronizes by leaving it close to a connector-less dock!!!"

    You can transfer signals but not power…What you are expecting is impossible. You cannot charge a device wirelessly.

  • seminolejohn

    not impossible to charge that way at all – my electric toothbrush does it, my electric razor does it. No reason my new phone can't do it

  • Hey Bourne,

    Regarding "Why the hell would you want that? Its only been 1 year. Its not like theyre exagerating. Why try to fix something thats already sexy. imo the iPhone is perfect on the outside. It just needs all the missing features."

    You are right but I would like to see Apple offer more than just one model. I should have probably said "I would like to see Apple launch a radically different iPhone and also refresh the current iPhone with the missing features and provide both Edge and 3G versions of the iPhone so that it appeals to wider category of customers"

    We all know what has happened to Motorola after the initial craze for their Razr phone died down.

    Jonathan,

    Though the idea of a buttonless phone sounds interesting, I would prefer features like GPS, video conferencing, better camera etc which are currently being speculated over a buttonless phone.

    cheers!

    I think you should proofread your short article for typos before posting it on the internet.

    As far as the new phone, if it has 3G, copy/paste, multi media attachments in text messaging, and AIM/ichat, I don't really care what it looks like.

    Alright, already with the rumors!!! Lets get this thing out there so we can see what its worth.
    Need to know if I should buy it or stay with my old one.

  • aa

    if this is a rumor why we can see the photos! hope this is not a rumor !

  • Kevin

    Lol to the guy who said you can't charge wirelessly. Ever hear of induction? Just as the guy that talked about his toothbrush and razor charging "wirelessly". They are charged by induction. There isn't any metal to metal physical contact… yet, his batteries are charged. INDUCTION.
