A big report today from Digitimes, diving into supposed details surrounding Apple’s upcoming iPhone device. A few of the choice quotes from their interview with senior analyst Ming-Chi Kuo?
Apple initiated the iPhone 4G project at the end of 2008. According to our sources, Apple actually has another product codenamed N91 for the project, which offers less change from previous iPhones compared with the N90. It’s a parallel product to back up the N90 in case there are major delays due to significant modifications in casing, display resolution, digital camera support and so forth.
Apple has requested memory module suppliers to provide both 256MB (used in iPhone 3GS) and 512MB RAM for compatibility tests. According to our internal tests, iPhone 4.0 Beta is quite memory hungry compared to iPhone 3.0, and with more complex apps, increased multi-tasking needs and a 5-mega-pixel camera built in, the iPhone 4 needs 523MB RAM
I think most people would be shocked if the shipping device didn’t come with 512MB of RAM, but it’s interesting nonetheless. What do you guys think? Do you believe we’ll see the device everyone has seen (aka the GizmoPhone), or do you think Stevie J. will break out something totally different?
