Iphone 5 Release Date – Specification We Care About

The iphone 5 release date is rumored to be within the next couple months. Those who love the previous versions of the iphone should be very happy with this news. The rumored specifications on the new iphone are quite stout, but this posses a question that could be asked with most technical products.

The rumored iphone 5 specifications are that it will support 4G, increased onboard memory around 1 GB, a dual 1.2Ghz CPU, larger screen with mobile TV capabilities, increased storage memory around 32 GB, 8+ MP camera, some kind of tethering or hot spot support, and the new Apple iOS 5. All the bells and whistles are quite nice and I’m sure consumers will truly enjoy them.

The question is, why hasn’t previous versions of the iphone included some of these features? Why doesn’t the phone support flash player yet? Why doesn’t it support 3d screen savers? Some of this has to do with technical limitations at the time the iphone 4 was in development, but some of doesn’t.

Flash player has been a headache for most iphone users for quite some time now. If you don’t know why it’s not allowed on your iphone, let me enlighten you. Flash player would allow small developing companies and even your average Joe programmer to build and sell flash player browser apps via the web instead of going through the App Store. Apple wants to dominate the App Store by controlling what can or can’t be sold within it. If flash player was installed, they would lose that dominance in the market. So it’s not as if the iphone can’t support it, or that Adobe doesn’t want it on the phone – it’s simply because Apple is being greedy. Apple wrote a specific clause in the Service Agreement to prevent iphone developers from using flash programming.

There is absolutely no reason why the iphone 4 doesn’t support tethering, or hot spots as its most commonly referred to. Guess what… it’s not because the iphone can’t support it. It’s because Apple won’t allow any software written for the iphone which interfaces between the hardware and its wireless capabilities. Again apple simply wants a monopoly within its own App Store.

With all at said, and with the iphone 5 release date approaching soon, I bet you’re wondering if I’ll be upgrading? You know it! However, It still bothers me that big cooperation’s can withhold technology that is needed by the customer base just because they feel like it, or use that as leverage to trickle out products.

The iphone is overpriced. It's the last phone I will ever buy. I pretty much prefer symbian and ovi store is growing at a fast rate too. Symbian is the most feature-rich smartphone operating system.

Is this any better than many of the phones out there. The new HTC phone has 3D video and camera capabilities and dual core. I used to be a 100% advocate of the iPhone but I was really getting sick of their proprietary technlogy and paying for apps that were free on android. I personally thought that the iPhone would have a projection onboard by iteration 5. Guess I was wrong as it appears they are falling somewhat behind in the race now.

A family member actually works for HTC here in Seattle. She said they are raving, within the company, about the new line of phones in development. Now that she has switched to HTC, she'll never go back. I may have to try out an HTC phone. I really do like the iphone although it's really all I known.
