If the cost of a 32 GB chip is borderline too expensive I'd much rather Apple went with that than a more expensive, higher-res display. I also don't want anything that either slows the device or badly impacts battery life. Perhaps OLED can save the day?

That said, an NVIDIA Tegra processor might be good
Wow: Hands-on With NVIDIA Tegra Prototype Device
I guess the size/power consumption numbers don't stack up well for phone use but that prototype does look sweet.
As an aside, it's also nice to see what CE can do when the WM mess is stripped away.

MacWorld in Jan 2009? Might be too early for a new iphone. By then the iphone 3G will have been in the market for only 6 months. Technologically they can make one now, but it wouldn't make economic sense to introduce it at MacWorld. I am hoping the HD will come out next July. Does it mean they have to increase the screen size? The Storm's screen looks bigger.

Ash and Dizzy, why is it a stretch?
The iPhone was introduced at MacWorld January 2007, went on sale June 2007. People though there was no way a new version would come soon...but...
The iPhone 3G was introduced at MacWorld January 2008, went on sale July 2008. People think there is no way a new version could be coming soon....
Apple updates iPod's every year, why is it a stretch that they do the same to the iPhone?
And think about the changes that happened from iPhone and iPhone 3G. They added 3G, changed the form factor, changed the memory, added the APP store, improved the screen quality and so on. Why would it be to soon for changes like memory and HD screen?

I think 32GB is more likely than a new screen. Also the recently announced 802.11n chip for mobile devices is a possibility. 2.3 and turn-by-turn navigation? Yes please.
And of course, if they do bump the capacity, I'll pay the cash to upgrade

HD is such a relative term. The pixel density of the iPhone's current screen is already quite high. There is a sharp diminishing return on how good a picture can get by shoving more pixels into a set amount of space. That said, if they reach 480p, I certainly hope I can get my broadcast TV on. Bunny ears for the iphone? Sign me up.
