I'm sure most of you have heard all the great things that the new iPhone will feature, and apparently it has sent many people packing...As in packing the sidewalks to get their hands on one. As an iPhone owner myself, I do plan on "trading up" to get the new 4G, but personally, I can wait 'til the hordes of zombies who suffer from touch screen induced fevers ravage through Apple stores worldwide. For those of you who are avid followers of the religion that is Steve Jobs-ism, myself included, beware- because there are already reports on things that this new toy doesn't follow through on. Lower your pitchforks and torches first please!
#5. Can I borrow a Megapixel?
|Written by Lonnie Edwards |
HTC, Motorola, Verizon, Sprint and Nokia have all embraced the megapixel race with 8-megapixel and 12-megapixel cameras. But the Scrooge Macducks better known as Apple keeps it cheap with a 5-megapixel model!
Apple doesn't plan on entering the 8-megapixel class until next year when it debuts a Sony camera in its 2011 iPhone. I'm sure the other companies will have mastered something called "Avatar-vision" by then.

#3. There's an app for that..?
So correct me if I'm wrong but I hear that Apple's hot new iPhone video calling feature, FaceTime, isn't exactly as advertised. To video chat with someone using this feature they will have to have a WiFi connection and not to mention you'll both need that application on your iPhone 4G. So, that friend in Montreal you planned on video chatting with who doesn't have an iPhone but has a Macbook..? You won't be video calling them (insert sad face here)
Rumor has it that Apple's contract manufacturers have cut production rates in half to 1 million iPhones a month. Let's do the math here...500 trillion rabid Apple fans + 1 million phones per month = A lot of sad face icons :(
There are many iPhone fanatics out there who want the 4G, but hate AT&T, unfortunately for you guys you'll have to wait at least another year before you can switch to Verizon, but AT&T is offering deals on the new iPhone at the cost of a 2 year contract extension. Ouch!
# 1. No Verizon iPhone.
