Even more rumors: The new iPhones’ specs

Notice the placement of the apostrophe in that title.

Faithful Macenstein tipster Doug writes in yet again with insight into 3 upcoming iPhone models allegedly set to be released.

Just as the iPod lineup developed and branched out, so does Apple have plans for the iPhone lineup. Here’s some of what is being considered:

A “Pro” or “Max” model, that is noticeably thicker than current model (over 15mm, versus 11.6mm for existing iPhone), to incorporate a battery with almost triple the duration of the existing iPhone. This model is also the 3G model. It is targeted for power users and enterprise, meaning people who may use their phone 2-3 days in a row (on a business trip) without accessing a PC or having the time or opportunity to charge it.

Existing iPhone stays the same, along with no 3G, just Edge.

Also being considered, and with engineering and development basically done, is a new entry model, that is slimmer than the iPod Touch (an amazing 6.2mm versus iPod Touch’s already amazing 8mm), and slightly less wide (58.6mm versus 61.8mm for iPod Touch). Screen size is the same; this width reduction comes from the casing. It does not offer video playback and has only 4GB. Could be as low as $159. Name to be determined, internally referred to as iPhone Shuffle, definitely not the final name. Edge, of course.

    No offense Doug, but that’s complete bullshit.

  2. Jamie says:

    Who goes on a business trip and can’t charge their phone for 2-3 days? Do they not sleep? Are they staying in backward hotels that don’t have power sockets in the rooms?

  3. VaughnSC says:

    Wouldnt the ‘Max’s’ extra thickness justify a removeable battery instead of putting a 3-times-the-capacity, but still just as unreplaceable, battery?

    What horrific ethics for you to post rumors from a guy named Doug.

    My guy … his name is Tony. That’s who you need to talk to.

  5. Olternaut says:

    And what about a multitouch device with the same screen dimensions of the ipod
    touch but NO VIDEO PLAYBACK??
    Nope……not going to happen!!!

  6. Chris says:

    Agreed, apple would not do something as dumb as this

  7. Jesse says:

    I fully agree and would put good money on the iPhone Shuffle coming out by the end of the year! Nice job Dr.

  8. Kurt says:

    no 3G? I think not.

  9. LeAstrale says:

    Jamie: Not many i guess.. but that said i have a Nokia N95 now it barely lasts 1½ day and thats not enough i would say at least 2 days of normal usage battery life

  10. Sebdude says:

    I think it’s complelely possible that they will introduce a second or third type iPhone, but a iPhone shuffle with no video playback, thats in the complete opposite directions Apple was heading with it’s current iPod line. The Nano, Classic and Touch all have video playback, why in the world you want to introduce a iPhone without video playback. Neither do i believe it would be smart to introduce a thicker iPhone 3G model, since the current model is really small and if you make it thicker, it would become an iPhone Treo… bad idea… Just update the current model with 3g and another cam infront of the bezel.

  11. fok says:

    Why would anyone want a new iPhone without 3G? Maybe in the US, but for the rest of the world 3G is a must.

  12. ariel says:

    it’s possible but if true it will be more like a 8G, 16G, 32G, with a 4G completetly out of the picture do to flash memory being so cheap right now, I also don’t see them building another EDGE model do to the fact that the iPhone will be available in places where there’s only 3G, even At&t CEO came out and said everything on their network will be 3G within a few months

  13. Michael says:

    Thicker!! Total BS.

  14. Richie says:

    1. Who has not the opp. to charge his phone in 3 days? While sleeping???
    2. Thicker? With point 1, there’s no need…
    3. 3G? 3G!!!
    4. iPhone shuffle??? LOL – without screen or what??? LOL
    5. Without video??? LOL – it’s in every nano!!! LOL

    Sorry, but this is complete BS.

  15. David_E says:

    This is a cool discussion, but what I really want to know is where is the iPod Touch Pro, the one that is at least 1.5 the size as the iPod Touch and has PDA as in Newton… as in iPod Newton?
