Rumor: Leaked 3G iPhone Pics and Specs

Pre-Mac|Life, about a week before any keynote I took care not to peruse Apple rumor sites. I didn't want to accidently catch a glimpse of a leaked image. I enjoy the surprise of every keynote and leaked images spoil that. Because I believe some readers still enjoy the mystery of the Steve Jobs keynote, I've resisted the urge to post the most plausible images and specs to date on the homepage of the site.

 

That being said, CrunchGear has received a series of alleged images of the 3G iPhone. The images seem to be from an ad for the iPhone 2.0 and are reminiscent of the leaked iPod nano images from last fall. Available in different colors, including (RED), the most exciting aspect of the images is the inclusion of the rumored forward-facing camera and mobile iChat AV.

 

 

 

In other iPhone rumor news, Engadget received word that the firmware for the 3G iPhone has been allegedly released and what was found inside isn't really too surprising considering what has been found in the SDK over the past few months.

- Infineon PMB6952 / S-GOLD3 six-band UMTS / HSDPA transceiver
- Murata LMRX3JCA-479 tri-band amplifier
- Sony SP9T antenna switch for GSM / UMTS dual mode
- ARM 1176JZF-S - Main CPU
- Skyworks 77427 chip - UMTS / HSDPA tx 1900MHz, rx 2100MHz
- Skyworks 77414 chip - UMTS / HSDPA 1900MHz
- Skyworks 77413 chip - UMTS / HSDPA 850MHz
- Internal build model number: n82ap
- UMTS Power Saving option - on or off
- Hooks for Global Locate Library (GLL), software that handles A-GPS related commands for the host processor.

 

Both of these leaks should be taken with a huge grain of salt and washed down with a glass of sea water. The specs seem legit, while the images seem too much like the leaked iPod nano images.

 

What's your take?

Take a close look at the events. Japan is getting the iPhone now. There is no way the current iPhone can come close to pleasing the Japanese. This one very well has the potential to do that. Also the picture quality is the same as that of the "fat" iPod nano. Now I don't know how iChat will work on Windows unless Apple opens up .Mac to everyone for free, with the paid .Mac having a lot more than the free .Mac. It fits though. All of it fits. It also makes sense. Apple has been making some clear and bold moves on all things Microsoft. One thing that is Microsoft is Windows Live Messenger. Perhaps Apple is feeling strong enough to take on their messenger, and with support for AIM they very well could end up with more iChat users than Windows Live Messenger users.

But that's all just some food for thought. Either way... I say this is legit. Said the same thing about the "fat" iPod nano and I also called the exact date of Leopards release. I have the same feeling about the new iPhone... >_> now if they would just release it on Alltel's network.

iChat bascally uses AIM. I've got .mac and don't know what you guys are talking about. I video chat with my Mom on her PC (don't ask).

ichat and .mac are two totally different things. ichat is very easily compatible with windows because ichat runs of of aim, or other aim like im services. .mac however does not even have an im service.

You're wrong. .Mac does have a chat service. It uses iChat. Either you've never used it or you don't have .Mac. If my friends had .Mac I would probably never us AIM, Yahoo, or Microsoft Messenger.

Well...You can use a .Mac account to access iChat, so I guess technically it's correct. Though you can still use a free AIM account with iChat to accomplish the same thing.

How can you say it's the same thing. There are features in iChat that only work with .Mac subscriptions. Anyone can view what you're chatting about with your friends. .Mac account and iChat add a level of encryption so you can have a completely private conversation. Try using all the video chat features with your friends on AIM via iChat. It's not the same thing at all. Granted it's not something everyone has because you have to pay for it. It's still an instant messaging service though.
