4th generation iPhone to come with 5MP camera. Apple tablet to be showcased in January

Not long after finding out that Foxconn has already received orders for Apple’s 4th generation iPhone, we’re now hearing that the new iPhone is likely to feature a 5MP camera.

Reportedly, the 5MP CMOS image sensors are ordered from OmniVision Technologies – which also makes the 3.2MP sensors for the iPhone 3GS.

Taiwanese sources are saying that OmniVision expects to ship 40-45 million image sensors for Apple’s iPhone in 2010 – and that obviously means Apple hopes to sell this (impressive) number of iPhones next year.

In other Apple news (or should we say rumors?), Business Insider has it that the Cupertino-based company is readying a “new, larger mobile device with a higher resolution display” for January 2010. This may be the much-talked-about Apple tablet, or even the aforementioned 4th generation iPhone.

Seeing what the competition has achieved (HTC HD2, Google Nexus One and so on), a new iPhone with a higher resolution display makes perfect sense, doesn’t it?

Regardless of what it is, Apple’s new and larger device will not be available for purchase in January – only a demo version will be ready by then. Well, let’s wait and see what the new year brings.

    ATT currently has no 4G coverage and will be unable to manifest any until aroud 2012. That leaves us begging the question, “who will be the carrier with a 4G iPhone?” Well, lets see, Sprint is the only carrier that has 4G in 33 markets with around 30 millions POPS as of Nov. 30, 2009 and are expected to have 120 million POPS by the third quarter of 2010. Sprint also has twice the amount of 3G coverage of ATT & 14 times that of TMobile. Verizon, if lucky won't have no more than 30 million POPS of 4G by the end of 2010. Owing to this I can only surmise that if Apple decides to introduce a 4G phone in the US in 2010, it surely won't be with ATT. Sprint appears to be the only carrier that can offer a 3G/4G iPhone in 2010, that is if Apple decides to finally untether itself when its contract expires in June of 2010. If logic is to prevail, I do not see an ATT/Apple Exclusivity after this date, it just does not behoove Apple to continue this relationship, lest it wishes to give the competition leverage over the iPhone. We all know the number of applications offered by Apple has reached to the point that you could conclude 'the law of diminishing returns.' How many chess games, translators, dictionaries and iFarts etc are really needed for one to say that their system is better? We all know that MSFT has far more applications than Apple but that does not translate into a better UI or experience. Nor does it indicate one is better than the other. Within months I can surmise that almost every useful application available on the iPhone will be accessable by the WebOS and Android based phones, rendering the different platforms little advantage regarding applications. What will make the difference is Speed, Unlimited Gbs and the the smartphone's Hardware quality.

    Apples 4g relates to the generation of the product… not the technology in the phone…
    iPhone = 1g
    iPhone 3g = 2g
    iPhone 3gs = 3g
    iPhone 2010 = 4g

    “4th generation iPhone to come with 5MP”

    Great. It only took them 3 years… Wonder if we'll actually see an iPhone with flash by 2030!?!?

    *fingers crossed*
