“Daring Fireball: WSJ’s Lame Entry in the iPhone Rumors Game”

And they have no actual details of the next-generation iPhone. Nothing. Not the A4-family CPU system-on-a-chip. Not the 960 × 640 double-resolution display.

I’ve been expecting the double-resolution (technically, quadruple-) since January, but the way the iPad shows existing iPhone apps has changed my expectation of how that’s going to work, and not for the better: I’m suddenly afraid that it’s just gonna do pixel doubling on existing apps, and it will be up to the developers to update their apps and handle the new resolution.

Which annoys me because that means some apps would in that case not get the extra-sharp typography you’d expect from the new device. Or at least not right away — but that’s still frustrating.
