- The camera resolution will improve to 8 megapixels, from 5 megapixels
- The iPhone 5 release was delayed until September to wait for the iOS 5 release. (This is the first time we have heard an explanation for this delay.)
- Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is developing a cheaper “low-end” iPhone for developing countries that will be similar to today’s iPhone 4. This will help the company compete with the Android (NASDAQ:GOOG) onslaught.
The iPad 3, meanwhile, will likely have better screen resolution and a more responsive touchscreen.
IDC is projecting that Android will have more than twice the global market share as the iPhone by the end of the year: 40% for Android (NASDAQ:GOOG) versus 18% for iPhone (NASDAQ:AAPL). This makes the cheaper iPhone even more important.
