iPhone 4 to pack double the RAM of Apple iPad

More RAM to join snappy processor in new iPhone

The Apple iPhone 4 looks likely to pack a hefty punch when it is released next week, reportedly doubling the amount of RAM to 512MB, twice that of the iPad tablet.

If accurate, the new figure will allow the latest Apple smartphone to handle multi-tasking in a swift and easy manner whilst putting the new device more in line with other current handsets on the market.

Although it is known that the iPhone 4 will pack Apple’s A4 processor, the same used in the iPad, it is expected that it has been toned down from its 1GHz potential in order to save the smaller battery of the smartphone.

The 512MB of RAM expected to emerge in the new iPhone would be twice that of the previous iPhone 3GS and Apple iPad and four times that of the older iPhone 3G. These heavily increased innards give reason to Apple’s decision not to allow a multitasking update on the 3G. All iPhone 3GS users will be able to update their handsets to iOS 4 from next Monday (June 21st) bringing multi-tasking to their current devices.

Whilst we are still waiting for a number of UK network providers to release their handset and tariff fees, Apple has unveiled their lofty prices and opened the iPhone 4 up for pre-order, an option that is proving a little too popular for Apple’s website.
