Well, its clear that Verizon iPhone rumours will never die until the Phone on Verizon becomes a reality. Now DVICE claims that an anonymous source has provided the website information about new Verizon iPhone. One of the most striking revelations is that Verizon iPhone will have a new antenna and the information has led many to call it Verizon iPhone 5.
DVICE says that the new antenna will be “relief” for users worried about iPhone 4’s infamous “Antenngate”. DVICE adds that the source has the prototype of the rumoured smartphone. An image of the new smartphone has also been displayed along with the sensational report.
In November 2008 Apple hired IBM’s Mark Papermaster to be Apple’s Senior Vice President of Devices Hardware Engineering replacing Tony Fadell as head of Apple’s iPod and iPhone divisions. A court deal later forced Papermaster to wait until April 2009 before starting at Apple.
Sixteen months after being allowed to work for Apple, Papermaster is out.
Speculation abounds that he’s the first casualty of the iPhone 4’s problematic antenna design, but neither Apple nor Papermaster have given a reason for the departure. One could reasonably assume that he may have been asked to resign for the design flaw in Apple’s golden goose — the iPhone 4.
Apple didn’t even wait for the iPad dust to settle before summoning the media to its next big event. On Thursday, journalists will gather once again ostensibly to hear about the next-generation of the iPhone operating system, and possibly an unveiling of the next-generation iPhone hardware.
There have been predictions and wish lists for iPhone OS 4.0 since…well, since iPhone OS 3.0 was released. Many of those items will fail to materialize and will become the seeds of the iPhone 5.0 wish list.
