Thumbs up ***Unofficial iPhone HD Thread***

Hey folks, just wanted to start an iPhone thread that I will be updating as news/speculations come in . Of course I'll also add more info from you guys as well . So let's get started.

So far this is what we have this as of 04/08/10:
- New GSM/HPSA iPhone model will be "named/called" iPhone HD, with a June 22nd release?
- New CDMA(LTE?) iPhone model will have a different name, and also smaller, with a summer release
- It will use Apple's A4 SoC
- Resolution of the screen will be 960x640, which maybe implies the same 1:5 aspect ratio
- iPhone OS 4.0
- Front-facing camera, so iChat?

Now, iPhone OS 4.0:
- Multitasking.
- Spell check (like on the iPad).
- Bluetooth keyboard support (again, on the iPad).
- User-defined wallpaper (a jailbreak favorite).
- Tap to focus when recording video, just like with photos, and a 5x digital zoom for the camera.
- Playlist creation and nested playlists.
- App folders for sorting apps! You can even put an app folder in the dock.
- Enhanced Mail! You can have a merged inbox view, switch between inboxes quickly, and sync to more than one Exchange account. There's also threaded messaging (at last!) and in-app attachment viewing.
- iBooks, just like on iPad, only smaller. You can wirelessly sync books between platforms, a la Kindle.
- Enterprise features, including remote device management and wireless app distribution.
- Game Center. It's like Xbox Live, but for iPhone games. Includes achievements, leaderboards, and match making. It will be available as a "developer preview," and out for consumers later this year.

iPhone 3GS and iPod 3G will only support multitasking as the ones before them do not have the "power" to handle it.

Developers are getting plenty of new tricks too:
- 1,500 new APIs.
- Full access to the camera.
- Date and address "data detectors."
- Background audio (think Pandora).
- Background VoIP (think Skype).
- Background location data, both with live GPS for backgrounded turn-by-turn, and cell tower-based for lower power draw.
- Local notifications. Like push notifications, but sends a notification straight from the app without needing a push notification server, perfect for an alarm, for instance.
- Fast app switching. Saves the state of an app and resumes it from where you left off, without dwelling in memory.
- iAd. Apple says it's for keeping "free apps free." The ads keep you in the app, while also taking over the screen and adding interactivity -- using HTML 5 for video -- up to simple gaming in-ad. Apple will offer a 60 / 40 split on revenue, and users can even buy apps straight from an ad.

iPhone OS 4.0 coming summer, while the iPad OS 4.0 will come later in fall

I wasn't responding to you, I was adding to the thread. You'll likely have to wait until Apple's June announcement for that info.
