Insides of iPhone HD (4G)

Gizmodo have opened up the “lost” iPhone next Gen

What’s different in the new iPhone HD?

Everything! Looking at the photos, everything is different!!

iPhone 3GS’s inside:

We can see that in iPhone 3GS, a big logic board is main component, CPU is also mounted on the board.

Look at the dropped iPhone next gen, it is like a puzzle! Lots of broken-up parts and mostly sealed between steel plate. We can also see that the boards and part all are squeeze into smaller part and the only part which is larger is the battery.

We can conclude that Apple’s main push for the hardware is not only camera and flash, it is the battery life. Why? Multi-tasking! Multi-tasking is huge in iPhone OS 4.0. It will be draining the battery, no matter how good iPhone OS 4.0 is at handling multi-task. Thus a boost to iPhone’s battery will be huge.

Altthough, we can’t see the CPU chip inside the next gen iPhone, but I’m pretty sure it will be Apple’s custom-made chip. It might not be A4, but somewhat better than the existing ones.

The inside of iPhone next gen is virtually nothing but a big battery, just like the iPad. [Gizmodo]

What’s New in iPhone 4G (Rumored)

After the big rumor news about the lost iPhone in bar, let’s find out exactly what is new in iPhone 4G(Rumored Set)

iPhone HD 4GNew Stuff:

  1. Flash! Can clearly seen above, 2 slots – 1 for camera 1 for flash!
  2. Improved back-camera (slot larger than 3GS – Possible 720p video?)
  3. Front Facing Camera as shown on photo below
  4. Micro-SIM like on iPad
  5. Improved Display ( resolution unknown yet)
  6. Possible secondary mic for noise cancellation as seen on Nexus One
  7. Split Buttons for volume (2 Round buttons)
  8. Power, Mute and volume buttons are all metallic

Changes on look and feel:

  • Aluminum border around case
  • slightly heavier(around 3 grams)
  • Squarish, unlike previous iPhone models
  • 16% larger battery (better battery life?)

Gizmodo reports on the feel of holding the rumored iPhone

Freaking amazing. As a person who never really liked the round mound of a back in the 3GS, the sleeker, flatter, squarer design is super welcome. It feels sturdier than the 3GS, and much less plasticky. The metal buttons give it a heftier feel—less of a toy—than all previous generations. The closest analog to it would be the original iPhone, which is more square and heavy than its newer brothers.

Seems like it is nicer than we though and definately “launched” earlier than we though. Hopefully the Apple employee who lose this iPhone prototype is not going to lose his job as mention by John Gruber from Daring fireball

So I called around, and I now believe this is an actual unit from Apple — a unit Apple is very interested in getting back.

More leaked iPhone HD (4G) photos

Yesterday we posted the leaked photos of iPhone HD (4G), although lots of guys comment it looks fake and ugly. Today we have gotten more photos which is similar to the leaked photos.

Remember before iPad launch day, Engadget did posted a photo of the leaked iPad photo? We never did realise iPhone HD is just beside it!

We can clearly see the iPhone circled in red, it is not the iPhone we have seen before. It has aluminum type of material in between the black plastic/glass.

Macrumors also posted some photos from China, where you can see that the iPhone cases and body part are very similar to the photo we posted.

We can clearly see a slot for front-facing camera, so we can predict the next iPhone will have a camera infront for video chat!

It is just amazing for iPad for grab 0.03 percent of all web traffic in the world just within 1 week!

iPad grabs 0.03 percent of all web trafficNetMarketShare shows that Apple’s iPad which just launched for 1 week, have already grab 0.03 percent of all web traffic in the world. This is remarkable as iPhone average about 0.51 percent, whereas Blackberry only have 0.04 and android at 0.07. So does that means that iPad is the next mobile computing device that will rule the world?

iPad with just 500k around in the world manage to grab such a huge percentage, it will be much much higher after the iPad international launch. So we have to wait and see if iPad as promised by Apple is the best web/content consummation device on earth!
