Apple iPhone 4G Preliminary Specifications
Smart move, Apple ;-) Just look at the delays the Droid Incredible is now experiencing - besides, AMOLED is apparetly even worse in direct sunlight than LCD.

This is so true. I read that my Nexus One has AMOLED, but seriously, I have so much trouble seeing it here in sunny California. I always have to go to the settings with my hand over the screen, trying to navigate and change them from Auto to the highest brightness. Even at that setting, it's still somewhat difficult to see. At least we have an easier option in Froyo to switch it on the Power Controls widget. I'm not trying to complain since I love the OS, but it is really annoying and I'm actually experiencing it for myself.

Its a no win situation...Great AMOLED screen than terrible sunlight reflection..if you get LCD then the quality is not as good. Both suck at finger prints....I wish I could make up that type of technology...or the technology to dissolve all of the oil in the gulf coast...I would be a billionaire right now

Apple has not gone with AMOLED this year because they have got to have a reason for you to buy the 2011 version. come 2014 Apple will run out of hardware & software ideas, where will they go then, they need to release more than 1 version of the iphone to stay in the phone business.

I agree with surethom, When has Apple NOT done this...iPhone, 6 months, iPhone 3g, 6 months, iPhone3gs, 6 months iPad, With little to no changes SO drastic to warrant 3 devices in this current technological age. Even their iPods, cmon what kind of iPod does video but cant take snap shots? WTF?!?! How many Nano's does t take to screw in a lightbulb..lets have a 1/2 inch screen to watch color videos...come on! You are seriously naive if you dont agree, or your the exact consumer Apple is looking for.
