+Simon Jary Obviously that's a possibility -- Apple, as we all know, is the only tech company that ever engages in such subterfuge. But seriously, people have to find something to write about when they haven't a clue what Apple is really up to so this type of "news" has to suffice.

If photography is important, surely a 1020 would be a smarter and more practical choice for the budding smartphone photographer?

Publisher and contributing editor of PC Advisor, Macworld, Tech Advisor, Digital Arts. Serial social experimentor
I'm the Publishing Director at IDG UK, responsible for Consumer and SME technology brands. I am also a Contributing Editor at Macworld, where I've written a monthly column since 1995 – through the dark days and beyond into Apple's unbelievable era.

I've worked in technology media for over 20 years, and am a veteran of more trade shows, announcements and keynotes than I care to remember.

The obligatory personal Steve Jobs story:
At one Apple keynote I was knocked to the floor by Steve Wozniak rushing to bear hug Steve Jobs, who didn't help me up off the floor. Oh and we shared the same birthday and initials, but I'm allergic to apples.

You can also find me on Twitter and (if you're a pal) Facebook. I think my Foursquare account is still live, but I'm trapped in Denmark.

My professional passions are technology, online and mobile publishing, SEO, social media, branding and digital marketing.

The brand promo:
PC Advisor's website is the World's Number 1 Technology Magazine Website for UK Audience (according to Nielsen Online). PC Advisor has over 1.7m unique users and over 4.5m page impressions each month. There's also a print edition (published monthly), and a range of associated mobile apps: including PC Advisor Daily (iPad), PC Advisor (iPhone and Android), TechHelp and TechFish.
