one thing that everyone is missing is the simple business cycle of cell phones/ smart phones / handheld. The turnover rate is 6 months. it has some of the shortest turnover rates of any technology. Every company is out there designing the next big thing, and one of the reasons apple has been so successful is that they are they are the first movers, or innovators. They will lose too much becoming a follower, even by a few months. The iphone has and will remain the innovative product for the company. They cant afford to let another company release any features that would make the iphone look like a follower--- we're gonna see a new iphone, even if its very basic hardware upgrades (camera, 32gig)
Im really hoping to see a crazy upgrade, so i can play higher quality games.

Don't know if the rest of you have seen this yet?
AT&T: New iPhone will be hot, son : Boy Genius Report
It remains to be seen what exactly is meant by some of the statements, but to me it sounds like new hardware in our future.

Are you serious? Of course there will be another one this year. And in the same month at that. July. And there will be all the hype throughout June which is when it will be announced. That just makes perfect business sense. lol...but seriously.

$399/$499 are for those that are not eligible for an upgrade and would like to upgrade early. Requires a 2yr contract.
$599/$699 are for those who want the device, but do not want a contract.

17" MacBook Pro style new battery?
AutoScaling for a 480x600 screen would be amazing if Apple could nail it. Allow an iPhone HD without splitting the platform. But if they can't nail it, might just make scaled app UI elements look like @$$

Quick OT: What's the difference between 2.2 and 2.2.1, except that I am (currently) prevented from unlocking it??

Sales point for existing iPhone 3G's? Maybe. Nowhere NEAR a new iteration of the iPhone. You'll agree with me in early-to-mid July.
And the hype will be created in early June. I don't like Apple very much, but I respect anybody who makes $$$.

The only new thing I want is an iPhone that can be used as a phone! It's too quiet. The speakerphone scks. There is no decent car or home speakerphone/handsfree unit that is good.
I love the iPhone as a gadget, but I need a second phone for talking. (back to the old Motorola V330 which I attach to the Moto syn0614A)
I wish there were a way to clone the SIM card so I could carry my iPhone but talk on a different one.
@phineasboggs The iPhone is much louder than my old SLVR so it's strange to me to hear someone complain about this. I did hear the 1st gen iPhone was quiet, but this has been improved in the 3G (which I have).
You can get any 3rd party headset for the iPhone that you would get for any other phone so not sure how you can say there is not good handsfree units?

And quiet? You might want to check at a local store to see if it's your particular unit?
One thing the iPhone is no match for the BlackBerry is its Bluetooth integration. But when all other BT connections are turned off, it works just fine.
