With the iPad out the way where oh where can the Mac rumor focus go – to the next-gen (so-called 4G) iPhone, that’s where, and Bloomberg last month began this speculative gold rush, claiming the new iPhone (which you got to accept, in the words of Douglas Adams, is going to give us a period of “rigidly defined areas of doubt and uncertainty”) will offer a more advanced camera and may have a touch-sensitive casing.
The analyst reckons the new iPhone will “feature a new plastic casing similar to that used for Apple’s touch-panel Magic Mouse released last year”.
“The technology may be replicated in the new iPhone to offer touch-sensitive features on the rear of the handset, Chen said.”
The next iPhone will go into production as early as April and be available to consumers in June or July, Chen said
Oh, and there should be a 5MP camera.
