Later this morning, the company will debut its latest iPhone, the fifth in the handset’s history. Though it’s not precisely clear what form it will take, most observers expect the fifth generation iPhone to boast a dual-core A5 processor, 1 GB of RAM, an improved camera, a dual–band GSM/CDMA chip that will transform it into a so-called “world phone” that can supports multiple wireless network standards and a rumored virtual personal assistant that arose out of its 2010 acquisition of Siri. Beyond that, we’re likely to hear more about iCloud (which may steal the show) and its promise of a simple, seamless sync, iOS 5 and its nearly 200 new features and perhaps an update or two to the company’s long-running iPod line. We’ll also get to watch newly installed CEO Tim Cook make his first big product introduction, an event that may well set the tone for his new role.
So join us here later this morning for what promises to be an exciting morning. Our live coverage begins at 10 am PT.
