A short while back, we tracked the progress of Liquipel, a company which has produced an almostmystical, invisible formula enabling the waterproofing of our treasured, fragile gadgets.
The coating, which looked simple enough to apply in the demonstration videos, then showed an iPhone 4S playing back video and running App Store games whilst submerged in a couple of inches of water.
Having apparently liaised with Samsung and Apple, Liquipel has now rumored to have struck a deal which would apply the apparently magic solution at manufacturing level to the respective companies’ upcoming devices.
Apple decided, that in 2011, it would break the regular launch pattern for the iPhone and deviate from the traditional June unveiling.
The company took to the stage in October instead during the “Let’s talk iPhone” event to announce the details and release date for the current iPhone 4S.
Even though the 4S has only been with us for just over three months, people are starting to speculate and anticipate when we will see the announcement of the iPhone 5.
This just in from the “not surprising since a rising tide lifts all boats” department — stock in Apple’s primary manufacturing partner, Foxconn, climbed to a recent high on speculation that Apple might be using metal casings for the next-generation iPhone.
The speculation is in line with what Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty noted last month. Huberty believes that Apple is moving away from the glass casing used on the iPhone 4 and 4S and moving to a metal casing instead. Foxconn spokesman Cheng-Kuang Liu, of course, wisely declined to comment about the rumors.
There has been much speculation about the next iPhone.
We’re all assuming it’s going to be called the iPhone 5, but then we thought the iPhone 4S was going to have the ’5′ moniker attached to it too, and we all know how that turned out.
But seeing as we’re all fairly confident that Apple will indeed release a new iPhone at some point this year – there has been an iPhone each year ever since the original went on sale back in 2007 – we don’t really know a great deal about what it will actually be.
The iPhone 4S is now three months old, which means the inevitable barrage of rumors and speculation will be hitting our screens in the coming weeks and months regarding future devices from Apple, especially the iPhone 5 and iPad 3.
The rumor train shouldn’t come as a surprise, considering it happens with every product release, but as the Apple products gain more popularity around the world, the focus on the rumors intensifies.
