YES! i will be purchasing the new iPhone this summer, probably regardless of the update because i will be coming off the 2G iPhone. I think most 2G owners will feel compelled to upgrade to finally take advantage of the 3G/ GPS and not be worried of purchasing on the cusp of a new device coming. So i will be there for sure!
unless its a "nano", which i doubt it would be, and i think its the stupidest idea anyways

For multitasking, the iphone will need totally new hardware, upgraded OS and wouldn't be compatible with older iphones. Not to mention it would risk not having such a simple UI that is so appealing to its target market.
Combine that with saving 70 or so a month on a cheaper unlimited plan that offers better speed and coverage (for me) as well as much fewer dropped calls and its kind of a nobrainer.
I seriously like the iphone as much as anyone, but the party is coming to an end for AT&T and its price gouging.

As for apps - while I like the iPhone and appreciate the app store, I think it is a little over blown as a competitive advantage - app stores are coming for all platforms AND most of the iPhone apps are crap.
So a Pre for me in the short term and then re-evaluate later this year.

I really hope the Pre kicks off well, I would really like to see some healthy competition to the iPhone.
And let's say the Pre is released in the next couple months, I hope Apple is waiting in the darkness until June with that Pre/iPhone 3G killer!
I voted YES. I have wanted an iPhone since the first one was released and now that my T-Mobile contract has run dry just this past month I am on stand-by at least until June/July (WWDC) to see what, if anything, is next.
But I'm keeping expectations low with high hopes. No need to set yourself up for dissapointment, ya know.
Only 96 days until June 1st! Imagine all the speculation that will have been out by then! LoL, I love it!

I will without a doubt be buying the new iphone when it is released. When you consider the $500 AT&T deposit I will be getting back in June (gotta love opening a new contract as an 18 year old!) so I will have solid chunk of expendable cash coming to me right on time. On top of the screen of my 3G has been cracked for a long time, and it will most likely be about the same price for the new one when it comes out as it would be for me to swap out my current now. I think from here on out I'll be buying a new iphone once a year. Can't imagine having anything else.

The day I turned 18 (25 now), I walked into an ATT Store (might have been Cingular at the time) and signed a contract with no deposit required. Unless you have butchered credit, I dont think one will have to throw down 500 bucks. Thats a lot.
As for getting the next iPhone. No. I wont. I got mine yesterday. I will probably wait. And of course everyone has an Apple store friend and my Apple store friend is pretty sure that there will be no iPhone this year and just a huge software update
