New iPhone will have turn by turn directions: release date July 17, 2009

Iphone The new Apple iPhone which has a unconfirmed release date of July 17, 2009 will run the new AAA app and perhaps even provide turn by turn directions for GPS users

AT&T has just announced that it double the speed of its wireless broadband network by 2011. At the same time the American Automobile Association has announced a new app that will allow members of the AAA to use "GPS technology to instantly identify nearby businesses offering deals for AAA members," according to the Associated Press.

This means that the next generation of iPhone will not only run the new AAA app faster, but will also potentially provide turn by turn directions to users.

According to

The net generation iPhone will feature:

  • 32GB and 16GB storage (up from the current 16GB and 8GB models)
  • $199 and $299 price points to be maintained
  • 3.2-megapixel camera (up from the current 2-megapixel camera)

  • Video-recording and editing capabilities
  • Ability to send a picture & video via MMS
  • Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device
  • OLED screen
  • 1.5 times the battery life of the current models
  • Double the RAM and processing power
  • Built-in FM transmitter
  • Apple logo on back will glow
  • Rubber-tread backing
  • Sleeker design
  • Built-in compass
  • The camera, GPS, compass and Google map combined will identify photo and inform about photo locations
  • Turn-by-turn directions
  • However it must be noted that Apple is always very tight lipped about new products and release dates so this news should be taken with a grain of salt as it was obtained from a source beta testing the new iPhone in China.
