iPhone 5 News – Expectations on iPhone 5 Features

The whole world is talking about the iPhone 5 release date. Speculations are going on about its features too. However, there is no confirmation on the release date as well as the features of the iPhone 5. Even though the phone is not in the market, experts have made solid confirmations on the iPhone 5 features based on the iOS 5.1 Beta.

Here are some of the features that you may see in the iPhone 5:

Bigger Form Factor
According to the iPhone 5 news on the testing product that was leaked out, there is a speculation that the iPhone 5 is going to be bigger device. It is expected to have 4 inch display screen. The form factor will be similar to that of iPhone 4S. We feel that the speculation of having a curved glass display is untrue as the rival company Samsung is going to use that technology on their forthcoming devices.

Better Display
The iPhone 5 is also expected to support high resolution display. If the display is going to be bigger, the screen resolution is also expected to be suitable for high quality video-watching.

Quad-Core Processor
With major smartphone manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, Motorola, etc producing quad-core processor powered smartphones, Apple will also make sure that their new device is up in competition with other smartphones. Since the people that have used the iPhone 4S have complained that the phone tends to lag during operations, Apple will not disappoint its users with the new iPhone device. The iPhone 5 is expected to hit the market with the A6 quad-core processor.

4G / LTE Support
The Motorola 4 Droid and Samsung Infuse are few smartphones that are available in the market that support 4G and LTE. So, we think that if Apple wants to stay in fierce competition with its competitors, the iPhone 5 should support 4G and LTE.

Other Features
If you go by the sales reports of the iPhone 4S 64GB devices, you can expect that the iPhone 5 should also be available with 64GB storage capacity. Since there are high expectations on a larger display and quad-core processor onboard, we can also imagine that the iPhone 5 will come with a high performance and long lasting battery.

The iPhone 5 rumors have been around since quite some time. Many people are interested to know the iPhone 5 release date, its features and specs. Expecting that the phone can release very soon, many sites on iPhone 5 are already available on the web.

Foxconn, is a company located in China that manufactures original designs for various products like iPhone, Kindle, Xbox 360. iPhone 5 is believed to design the iPhone 5. An insider from Foxconn has revealed that various samples of the iPhone 5 are passed around the factory, but still there is no update on how the final iPhone will appear. However, we do information that the iPhone 5’s form factor will be different from that of its predecessor phones.

The source also revealed that the iPhone 5 will not have a teardrop shape appearance. Instead, it will be longer and slimmer. Also, it’s high time that Apple upgrades the camera on the anticipated phone. We feel that the iPhone 5 will have 8 megapixels camera.

A source has also let out the news that Foxconn is on the verge of finishing the work on iPhone 5 and are aiming to release the phone in the summer. Not only the iPhone 5 release date is expected to be in summer but also the iPad 3 to hit the stands around the same time.

As far as performance of iPhone 5 is concerned, we expect the phone to be running on quad-core processor. This is understandable because not only the iPhone 5 but also we expect many quad-core smartphones from other brands to be released in 2012.

Few months ago, a popular blog from Japan – Makotakara, claimed that Hitachi and Sony are working on building the display for iPhone 5. It was mentioned that the display would 0.5 inches bigger than the predecessor iPhone 4S. Some tech experts feel that the display of the iPhone 5 will be similar to that of Samsung Galaxy II that measures 4.3 inches. Regardless of the iPhone 5 rumors that are going around, the phone is expected to be longer and slimmer.

Another rumor that most people are aware of is that Steve Jobs was working hard on building a rich-featured iPhone 5. The expectations are set high. We will have to wait and watch to see whether iPhone 5 will be meet all the expectations.

Angry Birds Tips and Tricks

Undoubtedly Angry Birds is the most famous games available for iPhone. This game is so popular that even other OS platforms like Android and Symbian are making this available game available to the people. The reason why this game is so popular is that it is a very simple game and anyone can start playing and enjoying it within minutes. However, the toughest part of the game is to clear the levels and move ahead.

In the game, you are provided with a slingshot which is used to throw birds to get rid of blocks that are made up of wood, stone or other material. Inside the block, there can be more than one pig. By using the slingshot, you should get rid of both – the pigs as well as the structure. You are provided with different types of birds. Each type has a different color. Also, each of the structure has different damage tolerance capacity depending on the material it is made up of. For example, structure that is made of up wood can be broken easily as compared to the structure made up of glass.

To master the game, you need to learn about the different kinds of birds. Here is the low down on them:

Red Bird
Red bird is the simplest weapon to hit the structure. The higher you throw it, the more damage it will do.

Blue bird breaks into three smaller birds and can be best used to break structures made up of glass. For maximum damage, you need to touch the screen just before the bird hits the glass. This will let the bird split into three and cause much damage to the structure.

Yellow bird is perfect for aiming long distance structures. Certain levels will have structures with parts that can only be accessed and hit by yellow birds.

White bird is a special kind of bird as it carries an egg bomb. When you are about to strike the structure, you need to hit the screen in such a way that the explosive egg is released and will go down and hit the structure below it. However, the white bird will continue to fly and hit the upper part of the structure.

Black bird is heavier compared to any bird in the game. You need to launch it at a steep angle and then it will explode to the bottom and will do great damage to bigger structures.

Green bird has the ability to perform like a boomerang. It can do massive damage. However, once it hits the structure you cannot take advantage of the boomerang function.
