iPhone 4th Generation Available this May
iPhone introduced the 3GS less than a year ago and there is speculation that the newest device from Apple will be available as early as this May. Apple will want to come out with the 4th generation phone earlier to compete with Google’s Nexus One Android smartphone. The new iPhone comes with a list of new features that will surely make it a hit or will it? Some of the new features include a newer, sleeker design, a front facing camera (5 megapixel) with LED light and video capabilities (iChat), making it possible to video conference, True GPS built in and a more efficient operating system. The screen will be updated as well to OLED for power savings and a better image. There are even rumours that there will be a removable battery, this seems to be the least likely as Apple has never had a removable battery in any of their iPhones, iTouch or iPods. The 4th generation iPhone will also be able to use multiple Apps at once, this will be a great feature making the 4th generation more like a laptop than a phone. Many iPhone users find it difficult to cut and paste and move from one App to the next, so this will be a greatly appreciated enhancement. It will be available in 32Gb and 64GB models.
So why would you want one?
If you currently own an iPhone these new features are probably not going to make you run out and buy the 4th generation. Keep in mind that with any new device and operating sytem there will be many bugs that will need to be irioned out. Why would you want to be Apples guinea pig, especially when the 3G is more than enough to do everything you could ever need on a smart phone. On top of this when the 4th generation iPhone is available the 3G phones will come down in price. You will be able to negotiate a better deal when this happens. I would suggest holding off on the 4th generation until the next release. Even if you do not currently own an iPhone, it would still be a better investment to get a 3G iPhone for personal or business use, they are quick, reliable and hassle free.

So why would you want the 4th generation iPhone when the 3G is more than capable?
