The iPhone of the "future" will be in my tooth or dentures. The display will be virtual, probably in my glasses or contacts. I will scale by opening or narrowing my lids, move the cursor with my eyes, and select with a double blink.
Of course, one reason for locating it in my mouth is to facilitate two-way voice communication. After all, it is a phone.

Briefly, from some of the other features that are appearing on new handsets, I would like to see or rather expect to see on the 4G iPhone; Without a major handset design change ( I think the iphone is sleek and elegant ), I do think a big leap will be made to the UI. The functionality is already in place with the iphone, theres no handset ive encountered that can match the fluidness that iPhone OS presents. When I say fluid, I mean the responsiveness of pinch to zoom, and the way things fluidly move in the os....Now, people want things the way they want things, GIVE US CUSTOMIZATION STEVE!!! Android OS, great layout, not perfect or the best, but widgets, different home screens, etc really appeal to me as features I would like to see on the next iPhone OS UI. Did I mention FLASH support??/
Hardware features I think are a good possibility are.....Better camera capable of HD resolutions, A FLASH, front-face cam for video conferencing, 64gb and 120gb models, and HD screens....Thats just my 2 cents.

I think that Apple actually has the interface and look down but what we will begin to see is a difference in capability. For instance an HD tv or radio tuner built in, imagine being able
to watch local programming live in HD. Imagine the Hulu app finally coming live or just the ability to stream your iTunes library as a native app. The possibilities are endless, you could have live video chat with a front facing camera or have a native app that tracks all your facebook, my space, IM, text etc with instant push notifications. With 4g tech and better battery life what WONT we be able to do?

One can hardly imagine the reaction of the "steaming pile of failure" to this post? Services that bypass us? How do we get our money? How do we carry the load? How do we prevent the users from using these capabilities? How do we support the users? How do we get the users to support themselves? The list is infinite.
It is less difficult to imagine what they are telling Apple. "Not no but hell no!
Not now, not yet, not ever!"

The carriers are becoming a lot more resigned to their fates as "dumb pipes" and ATT is the one who didn't say hell no to Apple if you'll recall - VZW is the comapny of "hell no" and locked down Wi-Fi and GPS (I know they don't do it any more, but they were the last holdout, so pardon me for not rushing into their ***** arms). As far as iPhone 4.0, I am hoping for better notification management, better app organization, faster proc/more ram, higher res screen, new battery and I expect 64GB due to recent changes in memory denisty from the usual suspects. I expect some minor style changes, but nothing huge. 128GB will be the generation after 4 .

Front facing cam, at least 5mp rear camera with flash/image stabilization/macro/higher quality video recording, much higher resolution screen, better processor, more RAM, vastly improved notification system, improved OS, categories, and customizing.
NEEDS at least that just to keep pace with the competition, remember, 2010's phone will have to make do until 2011, so it has to be incredible to stay on top as the competition is taking no breaks.

My first personal hard-drive was the size and weight of a cobble stone, cost $3000, and held 10 megs. Megs!
64G is a lot of storage. Storage/per dollar really does double every year. That said, data expands to fill the storage available to put it in.
