I really have begun to hate posting Apple rumors, because no one knows if they are real, and are subject to change on a moments notice. That being said, I love reading Apple rumors, but again take them with a grain of salt.
That being said, Kevin Rose formerly of TechTV and of Digg.com fame, has accurately predicted the iPod nano, Core 2 Duo Macbook and Macbook Pros. By doing so he’s earned a bit of reputation for being accurate when he spews out an Apple rumor.
Here are the details he’s found out about the upcoming iPhone.
â€¢ Coming in January to all providers â€¢ 2 batteries (1 MP3, 1 Phone) â€¢ 2 capacities (4GB & 8GB) â€¢ Prices will run $249 & $449 â€¢ Flash memory (surprise) â€¢ Slide out keyboard â€¢ Touchscreen (on outside) â€¢ “Cool” OS .
I have to say, that it certainly doesn’t sound like a Blackberry killer for me, but there is rumor’d to be work started on a 2nd generation of the iPhone.
Either way, it’s refreshing to hear a phone will hit all providers at the same time, not like the staggered approach by nearly every other model of cell phone. At $249, I wouldn’t mind having a second phone. It’s not like I’ve ever had 3 or more active phones with me before 😉
