The End of The Wait For The iPhone 5 : Rumors, Roadblocks and Release

PCMag  published this Infographic  created by  allareacodes , on the rumors and speculation on the Apple  iPhone 5 wait for launch. This couls be very likely as the Biggest wait for any  release of consumer electronics device  and as a change Apple didn't reveal a new iPhone at WWDC 2011, instead using it to announce the new iCloud and iOS 5.

The iPhone 5 media Coverage across print and digital has been ground breaking  this includes a lot of rumors, speculation and hype  for the last 15 Months   with some rumors having  more credibility than others. It's confusing for all, but fortunately the folks over at AllAreaCodes have created a nifty infographic listing out key iPhone 5 rumors and when they began.The first rumor, according to this graph, dates back to November 2010 and claims Apple will include a near field communications (NFC) chip in the next iPhone, which would let users transmit information between devices; NFC is one form of technology that powers mobile payments.
Afterwards, people quibbled over everything from the launch date (June, September, October, November?) to carrier support (T-Mobile and Sprint too?) to the curvature of the outer casing (teardrop or box-shaped?).

 And in the leadup to Apple's iPhone event on Tuesday,  the rumors have become more sophisticated to include details like what sort of 4G network it'll run on and the extent of voice recognition it'll pack. Click here for more recent iPhone 5 rumors not included below, as well as PCMag's own speculation over What the iPhone 5 might look like and Six Amazing Phone Technologies We Want in iPhone 5.

Apple's New iPhone 5 To Have 3D Camera

According to Appleinsider Apple has toyed with the idea of adding two or more rear-facing cameras and sensors to a device like an iPhone, allowing pictures to be taken and displayed in 3D.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office this week revealed a patent application from Apple related to 3D picture taking, entitled "Systems and Methods for an Imaging System Using Multiple Image Sensors." First discovered by
AppleInsider, the filing describes a system that would capture, process and render 3D images with the accompanying dual-camera hardware.

The application refers to Apple's approach as a "paradigm shift from the known software-based approaches." It notes that current software must "guess" at how to perform stereo disparity compensation for 3D images.

Those guesses, Apple said, can result in images with artifacts in a composed 3D image that would result in a poor quality photo. Apple's method would instead employ a hardware-based approach with a "deterministic calculation for stereo disparity compensation."

Apple would create hardware with multiple imaging systems, employing separate luma, chroma and depth/distance sensors to capture images that can be turned into a single, three-dimensional picture.
Apple's system would also be able to record video in 3D. Setup and calibration of such a system would be a simple one-time event, the application claims. Another  new patent application from Apple describes iPhone games that would use the device's many sensors and capabilities -- including motion detection, GPS and camera -- to offer a new way to play and compete with friends in a real-life 3D space.

"The game devices can include attachments," the application reads. "For example, a 'gun' can be attached to a game device and used by a player to target other players in the real world game environment. In this case, the orientation of the 'gun' relative to the game device can be determined."

Meanwhile there has been a lot of speculation across the Internet on the details of iphone 5 Features, while iPhone 5 is to hit stores in the Fall, the iPhone 5 rumors seem to be getting bigger with time  From new cameras to bigger screens, more RAM and NFC here is your complete roundup of what you can expect from the iPhone 5.Here is an infographic " which is a mere speculation on the new iphone 5

AT&T vs. Verizon iPhone Battle in Infographics

Now that the Verizon iPhone is official, U.S. smartphone users have an additional choice of carrier when it comes to picking up Apple’s smartphone.
The Verizon iPhone will be available on February 10, 2011. Spec wise, this phone is virtually identical to its AT&T brother, but the difference in network technologies means that there are a few differences in what the phone can do.erizon wouldn’t get into specifics on pricing plans, so for the data plan, we just used its existing smartphone rates. It also isn’t clear if Verizon will be charging for hotspot access on the iPhone (as it does with some of its handsets) or if it will be a free feature.(source : Mashable)

iMac To iPhone : A Decade of Apple

[Graphic based on Brett Jordan's original via TUAW]

It’s amazing to see how things change in a little more than a decade. Back then, Steve Jobs preached the new iMac as the centre of your digital life, the internet machine. Now, the internet machine fits in your pocket.

But with 16 times the memory, eight times the storage and more than double its raw computational power, all in just a tiny fraction of the iMac’s size and at almost half the price, it truly boggles the mind. Back then, if you told this to anyone, they would have thought you were nuttier than Mel Gibson on speed.

It’s even more amazing to see how this tiny little thing has dwarfed the Mac. In 2009, Apple sold 10 million Macs – including the desktop and portables – compared to a whopping 45 million iPhones. And the 45 million is not counting the other iOS devices. Next year, the iPad alone is expected to surpass the sales of all Mac computers combined.( source

iPhone 3 G Availability
Apple's iphone Sales Chart

Development of the iPhone began with Apple CEO Steve Jobs' direction that Apple engineers investigate touchscreens.[Apple created the device during a secretive and unprecedented collaboration with AT&T Mobility—Cingular Wireless at the time,at an estimated development cost of US$150 million over thirty months.Apple rejected the "design by committee" approach that had yielded the Motorola ROKR E1, a largely unsuccessful collaboration with Motorola. Instead, Cingular gave Apple the liberty to develop the iPhone's hardware and software in-house.

On July 11, 2008, Apple released the iPhone 3G in twenty-two countries, including the original six.Apple released the iPhone 3G in upwards of eighty countries and territories.Apple sold 6.1 million original iPhone units over five quarters. The sales has been growing steadily thereafter, by the end of fiscal year 2010, a total of 73.5 million iPhones were sold.

The touchscreen is a 9 cm (3.5 in) liquid crystal display with scratch-resistant glass. The capacitive touchscreen is designed for a bare finger, or multiple fingers for multi-touch sensing. The screens on the first three generations of the iPhone have a resolution of 320 x 480 (HVGA) at 163 ppi, while the display on the iPhone 4 has a resolution of 640 x 960 at 326 ppi.

The touch and gesture features of the iPhone are based on technology originally
developed by FingerWorks. Most gloves and styluses prevent the necessary electrical conductivity;however, capacitive styli can be used with iPhone's finger-touch screen. The iPhone 3GS also features a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
