iPhone 5 Has 3 Prototypes, Details Revealed
The speculation on Apple gear never stops, what with a mini iPhone 5, a mini Apple iPad 2, and now apparently Apple has three prototypes of the next generation iPhone each with a different feature if the rumours are to be believed.
According to an article over on Toms Guide, Taiwanese website ApplePro is reporting that an source of the unnamed variety as usual, has handled all three iPhone 5 prototypes, one of which apparently sports a slide out QWERTY keyboard although no other info has been revealed.
Another of the rumoured iPhone 5 prototypes apparently closely resembles the current iPhone 4 but carrying an 8 megapixel camera and delivers improved battery life along with improved hardware, although just what improvements hasn’t been stated.
Then there’s yet another iPhone 5 prototype, which the article doesn’t actually mentions anything about, not sure why, but they do go on about the Apple iPad 2 coming out to play with a camera and thinner profile, which we’ve already heard about.
Of course all this is complete rumour as we all know Apple plays things close when it comes to new gear and we basically won’t know the true of the matter until such times Apple is good and ready to reveal.
Having said that, an iPhone 5 packing a slide out QWERTY doesn’t sound too far fetched as I’m sure there are many out there that prefer a physical keyboard to a virtual one. Perhaps that slide out keyboard is actually a gaming pad to challenge the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play…who knows.
