iPhone 4G: The iPhone killer

Written By Unknown on Monday, January 18, 2010 | 3:15 AM


iPhone 4G

After Apple launched the iPhone, many companies have been trying to compete with it by launching their own touchscreen smartphones. The Palm Pre and Motorola Droid are two devices that really hoped to be an iPhone killer. The truth is that there is no iPhone killer right now, and that the iPhone has the best operating system. What is the secret behind the iPhone's success? The iPhone operating system is very intuitive and user friendly. The only device that can kill the iPhone is a new iPhone, and that's the iPhone 4G which is launching in 2010.

While no official information on the iPhone 4G has been released,there have been many rumors that have already spread on the web. Everything below is unconfirmed, but I will update this post as we discover more information.

I'm sorry. I like the iPhone as much as the next guy (well, maybe not _that_ much, that guy's a real pervert), but to say the reason for it's succes is the operating system is a bit of stretch. The reason it's succesful if because of the unified design, in which each element compliments each other. The other reason is that it catered functionality (in a slightly more limited form) that was only available in expensive and ill-designed business-phones to the fashion-conscious twentysomething demographic. The OS is serviceable and admittedly better then Windows Mobile, but it has some huge kinks and unfriendly parts.

its already been said in numerous places that it is doubtful that the iphone will support flash.

January 18, 2010 at 6:56 AM

I agree, but according to rumors the new iPhone 4G may have a faster processor and that's why Apple is allowing Flash Player on it.

I'm a big fan of Mac OS X on my computer. On my phone I'm a little more demanding. Flash is cute, but it will be a resource hog, and who wants to see all of those ads on web pages?

MULTITASKING. That's the trick. 16gigs minimum? Good. Then you won't mind me running 3 or 4 apps at once.

I bought a 128 Mac in 1984. The following year I stuffed it with 512K. Andy Hertzfeld wrote a neat little program called "Switcher" that made us think the Mac was multi-tasking. It was many years before Apple allowed true multitasking on the machine.

The problem is that Android, WebOS and even the graybeard Win-Mo lets smartphone users run more than one app at a time.

Surely, the 4G is going to have it? Don't hold your breath.

The amount of *storage* (secondary) - 16GB flash has nothing to do with multitasking. That would be *memory* (primary)- rumored to be 512MB.

Just for clarification.

4G? Sneaky name since VZ doesn't have a 4G network.

The 4 inch screen - no way, the iPhone apps are not scalable to larger screens. Even if there is a tablet that uses iPhone OS it will run the apps in the 3.5" size unless the app's programmer writes an update for the tablet screen size.

The camera rumors are plausible - although VGA would probably be the max for a forward facing camera.

The processor is very far fetched. It would be taking a step backwards to use QUALCOMM's 1 GHz chip when they could use ARM's Cortex A9 multi-core mobile processor - especially since they already have a deal with ARM and they have been using them since the beginning. As we all know, mulit-core is much better than a simple speed increase.

The next iPhone running iPhone OS 4.0? You think?

Memory capacity increasing is a safe bet.

GSM yes, CDMA no. Putting CDMA into a new iPhone would be like putting a 286 processor into the next MacBook Pro.

Flash support - why? Haven't missed it yet.

Wow fail, their trying to copy nexus one

January 19, 2010 at 8:41 PM

idiot everyone knows that this year Verizon is upgrading to a 4g network....>.>

Ok I guess the only phone that can beat an iPhone is another iPhone but that beats the purpose of being an" iPhone killer" if an iPhone is better than another generation of an iPhone it's just a better version it's not an "iPhone killer"

January 22, 2010 at 3:49 AM

Retard, the Gs stand for generation not the coverage.. Now Stop Calling people names dip

January 22, 2010 at 4:34 AM

VG will not have 4G this year..

January 25, 2010 at 2:47 PM

Thank you! People need to understand that the storage memory has nothing to do with how many applications you can run on a device.

After seeing what the iPad turned out to be I'd say most of these "specs" are mere dreams. You will never see Flash on the iPhone OS, ever. That I can speculate and bet money on.

January 30, 2010 at 5:27 AM

The iphone is way too closed for you to even consider the notion of flash player on it. Apple would never allow it, because that's too open for them. They want to control everything about the iphone. They even make you pay for firmware updates to unlock capabilities the device can already do. I'm sorry but a company should let you do what you want with the thing. Just look at their app store; everything must live up to Apple's morals and standards to be allowed in. That isn't how America is run, granted you should have quality standards, but content standards? No. If it offends you, don't download it. The people should make their own moral decisions, not some company. I like Apple's products, just not their control over everything. It's as if they are a dictator and we are supposed to blindly follow. We should be able to fully customize our devices, since we spent so much on them. Android is the clear choice when it comes to this. Android will overtake the iphone in 5-10 years. No question about it.

Apple has its reasons for not allowing multitasking, the main one of these being battery life. If you're running three programs in the background while checking your stock report, the battery life is going to suffer. We may complain about the lack of mulitasking, but right now there are just as many people saying they'd sacrifice that ability for a longer lasting battery.

February 10, 2010 at 7:48 PM

flash support? I don't think so.
Uncle Jobs want you to buy games at apple store, and not play for free in any flash based games site.

frontal webcam? COOL =)

Well, technically it does if you enable dynamic paging... but you don't need much space for that, so the increased storage capacity is still mostly irrelevant.

February 20, 2010 at 5:07 AM

It should be upto the owner of the iPhone if multi-tasking is enabled or not.

Apple should not dictate what features we should get due to the fact the battery will die quicker.

If iPhone wants to dominate the smart phone market, then it should have the features that all the other phones have, such as flash and multi-tasking.

March 8, 2010 at 6:40 PM

Nope, no flash on iPhone.

Steve Jobs told us that Flash sucks and will never be supported on iPhone, but that they support HTML5 instead.

More and more websites are leaving flash for what it is.. Flash is beautiful but not "green" enough.

hey when can i buy da iphone 4g????

March 26, 2010 at 12:35 PM

^ I LIKE THIS REPLY. android and apple will continue to battle for title of "smart phone" or at least best OS. But i doubt either will take "BEST". everyone will like one or the other. i work in best buy mobile and in reality i would say the 4.0 OS will have multitasking and video chat. the iphone 4g will have about 500-600 mhz proccesser 5 mpx camera and 3 mpx for video chat. other than that everything will be the same outside of storage space and the "look" of the phone. possibly a different size and shape just to make more money off of us.

I have o say, if you dont like Apples control, lack of Flash, or anytning else on the iPhone,then you have one choice...dont buy it.
I love my iPhone,so I accept what it is.If I didnt,I would have bought something else.
