The next iPhone comes equipped with LED flash?
Probably everyone who holds interest in modern technologies is eager to find out more about the hardware specifications of the next generation iPhone. As we have already told you, the brand new device will feature 5-megapixel camera. AppleInsider now reports that a source close to Apple has revealed the company intends to order millions of LED flash components and Philips Lumileds Lighting emerged as the most probable supplier. Allegedly, due to the sheer size of the order, the parts are intended for the next iteration of the iPhone and supposedly, the iPod touch. Philips Lumileds Lighting is known for its LUXEON branded LED flash chips integrated into devices equipped with cameras featuring 5-megapixel or better sensors. They are highly energy efficient and of really good quality. We wish we knew more about the official release date of the iPhone´s successor, but we guess we will have to wait until WWDC 2010 and the official introduction of the highly anticipated device.

I guess now we'll see multi-tasking and Flash, some plus action maybe.

Flash support and multitasking i highly doubt. if you read through the restrictions in the Open SDK it states firs toff that all apps must terminate on close (meens they are not allowed to run in the backround). also no app can call on another API or intigrate with the stock apps (hence no flash since it's an addon)

And all the idiots of the world will talk about it like nobody else has had a flash alongside their camera for the past 4 years.

Don't forget, Apple will market it as if it were an 'innovation.' Never you mind that we've been able to do apps on our phones since the first dot matrix screen phones.

WOW! IPHONE HAS A 5 MP WITH A FLASH!! Apple just continues to innovate and remain on the bleeding edge of technology. Mix those camera specs with the ability to multitask and I think we may have a revolution in the cell phone market. (Sarcasm... for all you iphone users that didn't pick up on that)

Finally a flash, the iphone is getting into the 20th century. Now currently all the iphone fanboys typically say who needs a flash, you don’t need a flash, who takes photos in the dark. When the iphone has a flash they will suddenly say, look we have a flash, we always wanted a flash, look we can take photos in the dark. This is why Steve Jobs loves apple fans.

Now Apple needs too free itself from AT&T and join the "Real" 3G boys: Big Red and the Now network. Some of might say why would Apple invest in struggling Sprint, but think about it: How popular was AT&T before the iphone?

at&t has always been number 1 or 2 out of the 4 big carriers, so I think at&t was popular before the iPhone. The iPhone won't come to Vzw, I just think it's too late for apple to make a CDMA version of their next iPhone, which I'm betting will just be the same device w/ slight differences in screen size and CPU; and even if Vzw gets LTE up, most of their network will still be CDMA. I'm guessing it'll be a variant, possibly the that tablet of theirs, you know, a subsidized tablet/ smart book replacement from apple for the Vzw crowd.

They were number 1 or 2 because att and cingular merged.

I have a feeling Apple will create a non iPhone phone for us CDMA companies. similar to the iPhone but not exactly. Anyone else think so?

Apples intention is to get this handset on every network. Unfortunately for Crapple, VZW already has a better device on their network and no longer need Crapples limited restricted junk.

Verizon should never carry iPhone because when it first came out it was not for Verizon, why should Verizon want it now since there are so many smartphones available no iPhone is no problem to Verizon.

All of you morons who have nothing better to do to post anything negative anytime anything iPhone related comes up, really need to go back to bed because I am sure it's WAY past your bedtime. Middle School comes early in the morning for you kids. It's a cell phone. If you want to take a real picture, get a real camera.
