Apple has an established pattern of releasing new iPhone models in early summer. A new unconfirmed report says that this year's model is going to be out a bit earlier than usual, in late spring.
A report coming out of Europe says Apple intends to launch the forth-generation iPhone in May. Previous models have all debuted in June or July.
Supposedly, the release is being bumped up in response to increased pressure from new competitors, most notably the Google Nexus One and other smartphones running the Android OS.
iPhone 4G: What the Rumors Say
Apple has generally been very good at preventing solid information about its products from leaking out well ahead of their unveiling, but that hasn't stopped the rumors from flying around the Web. However, as the next-generation iPhone isn't expected to be announced for months, all of these are questionable.
A frequently-heard report is that that Verizon Wireless will get the iPhone next year, ending AT&T's long-held role as exclusive U.S. provider of this smartphone.
Many consider an AM-OLED display to be a strong possibility. These screens offer better colors in thinner designs, but cost more to make.
Another unconfirmed report says this upcoming device will have a 2.8-inch display. All previous phones from Apple have had 3.5-inch touchscreens, so the company may be planning to noticeably reduce the size of this product line.
