[Breaking][Poll] The ultimate iPhone letdown. Brace yourself.




As numerous recent reports have speculated about the added features of the 3G iPhone, MacScoop is reporting some rather disappointing news. They site that “Sources who can be trusted told MacScoop that the next iPhone will of course have 3G connectivity, but not much more, as it will lack built-in global positioning system (GPS) chip and include the same old 2Mpixel digital camera.”

If these details hold any truth to them, we will unfortunately not be receiving the two most requested feature updates. Unless a highly secretive higher-end model is looming on the horizon, iPhone customers and enthusiasts will need to continue to wait.

Additionally, “Other sources told MacScoop that we shouldn’t expect miracles in terms of battery-life as 3G chips are still way more power-consuming than those supporting only EDGE. That would either mean that the forthcoming iPhone has become a bit thicker than the current version so as to include a physically bigger battery or that we shouldn’t expect significant improvements in that area.”

Yet a GPS feature may not be completely abandoned, as Apple could provide some support for external GPS modules through recent iPhone 2.0 software seeds that have been rumored to be sent to some developers.

Let’s all hope and cross our fingers that these findings wont be indicative of what’s in store for us come June 9. If you have a minute please participate in the poll.
