Another day, another iPhone rumor. This time, however, as reported here, it's coming from a supposedly Foxconn recruitment manager, and one that claims that they, Foxconn, are hiring an additional 18,000 new workers to help fulfill a new order from Apple for the next iPhone, which is also expected to be released sometime this October.
The Foxconn's Taiyuan factory official allegedly gave all the details to South Korea's Maeil Business Newspaper, but whether it is accurate or not I can't say? However, the latest so-called leak contradicts an earlier report that stated that the next-gen iPhone will be debuting this coming May or June.
I don't know, of course, how dependable these contradicting reports are, but I do hope that the next iPhone will be a lot more exciting than the last one, the iPhone 4S, which was seen as being somewhat disappointing, even though it bested basically every other smart phone out there. Remarkably, in spite of all the criticisms, the iPhone 4S went on to become the biggest selling smart phone in history and it saw the introduction of Siri, an artificial intelligent personal assistant. Siri, itself, is expected to be significantly updated in the upcoming release of iOS 6.
In conclusion, all I know is that besides a major or significant upgrade to Siri, what I really would love to see in the next iPhone, the iPhone 5 shall we call it, is a larger screen, but not too, too large as we have been seeing in many of the Android and Windows phones out there. Some of these things have been getting so big that they are becoming somewhat of a challenge to use. I don't want to see that happening, but a 4 or 4.3 inch iPhone would be bloody damn sweet if you ask me.
And that's my 2 cents 4 this wet, dreary Monday, April 09, 2012
