Cars+Technology

Recently I came across a wonderful article by admin, posted earlier today, over on ipad iphone ipod update entitled Cars+Technology that I encourage all of you to read. Below are some little extracts in order to pique your interest!

This another one concept design look normal and it could be possible but the features expectations of iPhone.—————————————————-Some of the features that a lot of iphones fans want to see improve:Improved AntennaAnyone who remembers the launch of the iPhone 4 will remember th antenna issue and that is one of the first things that Apple should try to fix.1080p HDMI OutputI know Apple likes to use its own connections (which just makes things difficult for the consumer) but they need to step up and allow the iPhone 5 to output in full HD mode. it is essential for a high end multimedia device.Improved Battery LifeThis is something that can be expected but more is always better. the iPhone is made to use all the time for everything so a new battery needs to hold up to a lot of heavy use.

the iPhone 5 will be sure to take advantage of the new 4G network AT&T is working on.Flash SupportJust me dreaming. Apple isn’t getting friendly with Adobe anytime soon.______________________________________________________And here are some rumours:The iPhone 5 specs will be evolutionary, not revolutionaryAccording to the Chinese Economic Daily News (via AppleInsider), with the exception of Qualcomm chipsets – which would replace the current Infineon chipsets in the iPhone 4 – Apple’s sticking with the same suppliers for the 2011 iPhone 5G components. We’d expect the basics of the iPhone 5 specs to get a bump – more memory, faster processor, more storage – but DVICE quotes a single insider who claims to have handled Verizon prototypes. The specs? A new antenna, 1.

2GHz processor and a larger screen: 3.7″ instead of 3.5″. the iPhone 5 may also be made from a new kind of alloy, or maybe meat.The iPhone 5 specs may include a digital walletThere’s been some speculation that Apple might include Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the iPhone 5G, turning it into a kind of credit/debit card. however, as Techeye.net notes, “Apple has looked into NFC before” so this might not be imminent.PAY PHONE: Apple patents show how a near field communication-equipped iPhone 5 could act as a kind of credit cardThe iPhone 5 release date will be in the summer…Apple’s established a rhythm with iPhone releases, with new models appearing in late June or early July each year. It’s a safe bet that the iPhone 5 release date will also be late June or early July.

Now then, reading this post started me thinking so I did a google search for some other articles on the subject and found some more greats! For example, this post posted yesterday, by Tiernan Ray, over on BARRONS.com: Tech Trader Daily:

By Tiernan RayStifel Nicolaus & Co. chip analyst Doug Reid today weighed in on the amazing surge in shares of Microvision (MVIS), which makes parts for pico projectors. The shares were up as much as 50% after a report by Ticonderoga Securities this morning led some to believe Microvision could get a boost from a future version of Apple’s (AAPL) iPhone. “One of the multiple reports published today speculates that Microvision technology could be used in iPhone 5, a scenario we believe is highly unlikely,” writes Reid in a note to clients. Reid goes on to say that he sees it unlikely that any pico projectors will find their way into gadgets before 2012: We continue to believe that limited green laser supply in 2011 and the excessive power consumer profile and limited brightness of existing Microvision technology will delay a meaningful ramp of pico projectors for embedded use in consumer mobile devices until 2012 at the earliest. Reid has a Hold rating on Microvision shares.

Yet another fantastic article on the subject came from Chuong Nguyen over on GottaBeMobile posted yesterday, entitled iPhone 5 Rumors Pack in Everything But the Kitchen Sink … which is also certainly worth a look!

TweetShareEmailTweetShareEmailTiconderoga Securities Analyst Brian White is making predictions on some of the new features that Apple may use in the next-generation iPhone 5. White says that some of these technologies include the ability to watch live, over-the-air digital TV and an integrated pico projector to share your small screen display with others on a larger display. White is quoted as saying that these features are “attractive” candidates for the iPhone 5 and he believes the smartphone will debut in June 2011. While those two features can potentially be embedded inside an iPhone, it’s still dubious if those technologies fit with Apple’s overall strategy of creating a halo product that would integrate with and entice audiences to other Apple products.

The ability to watch live TV via over the air broadcast signal may be attractive, but may diminish overall battery life of the product and could potentially cannibalize Apple’s iTunes digital downloads and rentals business. Moreover, while the technology is popular in other regions of the world, digital TV signals on mobile has not taken off. Qualcomm has experimented with a pay digital mobile TV plan called FLO TV, which would allow users to receive streaming television without needing a data plan–that model had failed to take off. Also, as Apple is streamlining its smartphone to more widely fit in more markets around the world, digital TV signals operate on different technologies, bands, and frequencies across the world, requiring Apple to make region-specific models of the iPhone 5. This would make the technology, in my opinion, unlikely to appear as Apple would have to shift its production to accommodate iPhones for specific geographic locations.

99 rental cost on Apple TV, this move makes it more unlikely as free mobile TV may create a further chasm between Apple and studios and networks. In terms of pico projectors, the technology would be an interesting one, but given that the technology consumes a lot of power, it may not be as useful in an iPhone where using the projector could deplete your smartphone’s battery in a few hours. Despite having been on the market for a few years now, pico projectors are still niche. Moreover, Apple already has its own AirPlay technology to share content between different screens, and would more likely be pushing that. Also, given the lack of Apple’s business tools on the iPhone–like Pages, Keynote, and Numbers for documents, presentations, and spreadsheets on the iPad–it would seem unlikely that the business-focused pico projector technology would make it to the iPhone.
