Apple doesn't give consumers any technical specifications (like RAM size, processor speeds, etc) about iOS devices. However, developers (and other tech savvy customers) have known for a while that the original iPhone, iPod touch, and iPhone 3G had 128 MBs of RAM, while the iPhone 3GS and iPad have 256 MBs of RAM. After all, developers need to know this information in order to develop quality applications. But, in a recent WWDC 2010 session, it was told that the iPhone 4 will have 512 MBs of RAM.
If The Great White North didn’t already feel slighted by not getting the new iPhone 4 on June 24 along with the U.S. and a handful of international locales, the Canadians may yet have a reason to shake their normally laid-back demeanor, assuming a new rumor is true.
By now, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that folks are willing to camp out in the summer heat to grab the latest Apple gadget. Heck, in the case of the iPhone 4, it might not even be a bad idea, considering the nightmare pre-order situation for the device, which is currently fetching as much as $5,000 on eBay.

If you've even a passing interest in iPhone 4, you'll know that despite a series of technical glitches with AT&T's ordering system, the units set aside by Apple for pre-order were spoken for faster than poop through a goose, leaving many individuals with an earnest desire to own the handset frustrated and waiting for an opportunity to make their purchase. Where can one turn to in order to vent their lack-of-iPhone rage? Don't worry friends, you needn't look any further than eBay.
It’s becoming a bit like a B-movie monster that can’t be killed. We speak, of course, of the persistent rumors that a CDMA, Verizon-compatible iPhone is “coming soon.” But now, with only a week to go before the handset launches in the U.S. and a handful of international GSM carriers, a new report claims that a CDMA iPhone 4 is actually in production.
Shhh... do you hear it? There's an iTunes update blowin' in the wind! Apple has released iTunes version 9.2, and it appears to be be chock-full of all kinds of goodness, much of which will prepare the software's users for the arrival of iPhone 4 and iOS.

With Apple pre-orders are flying off the virtual stock shelves, it's no wonder that Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster has increased the analysis of the iPhone sales for the June 2010 quarter. According to his newest prediction, Apple could sell upwards of 9.5 million devices come the end of this quarter. That's up 1 million from the analysts last prediction.
Apple's iPhone Bumpers are doing surprisingly well. Shipping is actually delayed for several colors, including pink, orange, blue and white--which we can't help assuming is because of Apple's decision to omit the white iPhone 4 from its debut date. The colored Bumpers won't be shipping until July 16th, though the black Bumpers will be readily available come June 24th.
