A weird iPhone Apps site has some prognostications on the new iPhone. The worst thing? They appear to be patently false. Here are their “major” revelations:

# Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device
# OLED screen
# 1.5X The battery life
# Apple logo on the back to light up
# Rubber-tread backing
# Built-in FM transmitter
# July 17th, 2009 release date

The rest of their predictions, after the jump, are things we already know.

* 32GB and 16GB to replace current capacities
* $199 and $299 price-points to be maintained
* 3.2 Megapixel camera
* Video recording & editing capabilities
* Ability to send a picture & video via MMS
* Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device
* OLED screen
* 1.5X The battery life
* Double the RAM and processing power
* Built-in FM transmitter
* Apple logo on the back to light up
* Rubber-tread backing
* Sleeker design
* Built-in compass
* Revolutionary combination of the camera, GPS, compass, and Google maps to identify photo and inform about photo locations.
* Turn by turn directions
* July 17th, 2009 release date

My take is that they won’t do much to the look and feel and they definitely won’t make the Apple light up. FM transmitter? Nah. That’s old tech. And OLED is too expensive and someone somewhere would have run bells if Apple bought a million OLEDs.
