Let the speculation begin.
Starting at 7 a.m. HST, Apple will host a press conference titled, specifically, “Let’s Talk iPhone.”
Hmm. I wonder what the mega-million-dollar Cupertino, Calif.-based company is going to unveil. A new iPhone, perhaps?
It’s no surprise to Apple fans and tech-heads, many who were disappointed the company didn’t announce anything about the latest version of its smartphone at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference in June. The iPhone 5 is due, maybe overdue, and just in time for Christmas, too.
Apple might be a computer company, but it sure seems like a marketing think tank instead.
According to Forbes, AT&T and Apple both blacked out vacation times for their employees in the beginning of October, only furthering speculation about the release of the new iPhone.
Not that we need a new one already. I feel like I just got used to the iPhone 4 — love the improved camera, by the way, but hate the useless flash — and now I’m left to covet a phone I can’t get unless I break my two-year contract with AT&T.
But will this phone be any better? Will it have near-field communication or 4G LTE technology? Will it have a bigger screen and a better, 8-megapixel camera? Will Sprint customers finally be able to download Instagram?
We’ll find out in a few hours.
The real question, though, remains: will I buy one?
We’ll have to wait and see.
