Now that most of the iPad madness has died down (with the exceptions of some new bugs popping up here and there), it's obviously time to go back to discussing rumors about the next generation of the iPhone.
The latest big discussion has stemmed from Robert Watson, CEO of Canadian wireless provider SaskTel, who recently stated that a new version of the Apple smartphone will be available on their service this summer.
According to Apple Insider, SaskTel currently operates on a CDMA 3G network, but it switching to GSM, which should be ready by July 1 in time for a release. Many possible iPhone announcement dates are also swirling, with most people now pointing towards June 22. The actual U.S. release probably wouldn't be long after that.
The name of this new iPhone has also become a popular topic, varying between "iPhone 4G" and potentially "iPhone HD," given that the new model will have a better, higher-res screen. It's highly likely that Apple will release a fourth-gen iPhone this summer (and most definitely by the end of the year), but also as well as on two different carriers in the U.S, which should prove to be a much different but more interesting situation to observe.
One of the biggest upgrades I'm hoping for is a better built-in camera, with a higher megapixel count and a flash. These two features are available on so many other smartphones with cameras these days, so there's no excuse for Apple not to better the integrated camera to some extent. What would you like to see on a new iPhone?
