I think anyone looking for a BIG change in battery life is going to be disappointed, but that's just me. *shrug* Maybe I'll be proven wrong ( I wouldn't complain with a longer lasting battery ), but I don't expect my device to consume considerably less power with the next firmware update either.

I really hope it is a major A+ update as has been rumored. Google, HTC and Apple one upping each other constantly is a great thing for us consumers. I look at that HTC Evo and drool. Granted it is on Sprint which would mean changing carriers although I think Sprint is decent in New England. Certainly can't be too inferior to AT&T.
I know it is totally contrary to the iPhone as it stands now but does anyone think that the iPhone will ever have a home screen type page like Android does with Sense UI or WinMo? I'd love to be able to dock it and glance over to see the time, weather, first few emails in the inbox and next couple calendar entries. Or to at least have the option to customize it that way. Major changes to allow customization will keep iphone owners happy longer because you can change up the look and it feels like a new phone for a while.
Cant wait until the 8th!

One thing I really would like to see is a reply to all feature in my email. The attaching of pics also needs to be addressed. I really don't expect much in terms of improved battery life, but then again I really have no complaints about the battery life now. Mutitasking would be sweet, but I am sure that will kill the battery and cause even more complaints from people that just do not understand how many things are running on their iPhone.

I know it's a OS event, but I would love to see if maybe they are going to introduce a new iphone. Like I said, before I get jumped on by everyone...I KNOW ITS AN OS EVENT BUT,......I wouldnt mind seeing if Apple is going to present to us the new iphone!

I was writting one up last night, and forgot to copy the photo first. HUGE pain to not be able to attach things while in the mail app.

I would like to see customizing features such as changing sms tone and email tone, and reoccurring vibration reminders. I miss Blackberry Messenger and now a lot of my friends have iPhones so adding an iPhone messenger would be sweet. Being able to reply to a text or make a call while I'm doing something and a text comes in like my "Hero" would be nice. The combined inbox is another thing I miss about the crackberry. Jailbreaking my 3g was a slow horrible experience I'd rather have native functionality. Other than that I'd just be happy with more than 8GB memory. (should have gotten at least 16GB when I bought my 3G). I'm sure Apple will as always come up with features we should have had from the beginning and act like it is the newest set of features any phone has ever offered.

I'd like to see Widgets like Lockinfo on the Lockscreen and a unified inbox. I don't want or expect my 3G to be able to multitask and apart from audio streaming apps I don't miss not being able to multitask.

Unified inbox, or an easier way to flip between inboxes is a must. Making it a choice should satisfy everyone. Its ridiculous that I have to click back back forward forward to get to the next inbox. (this should have been fixed long ago)
There are some calendaring issues that need attention. If I click on a event that I did not create and reject it, I'm not provided with the chance to explain why and if its recurring it removes the entire recurrance - not just that instance. (perhaps that is specific to the combo of iPhone to Exchange 2007 but still should be fixed) The calendar on the iPhone is more of an FYI tool for me than a real tool I can use to manage my day.
I don't care to clutter the home screen up with information making it look like every old windows mobile device I have ever owned. Something that can be customized would be nice, but don't junk it up for people who don't want to use it as a personal secretary.
Multitasking.. I hated it on windows mobile. It left things in memory and crashed the phone constantly. I quickly learned to live without it (in favor of a more stable device) on the iPhone so I hope this doesn't screw that up. Aside from maybe wanting to stream music over the internet while I do email or be able to keep a GPS style program running in the background I don't really see the big deal.

Multitasking isn't huge because iPhone dealt with a lot of multitasking issues with push notifications. It doesn't handle everything but it's a good alterative for a lot of things. Right now, if they can offer multitasking for music and Internet radio services that would be great.
Heres the only real multitasking options I want... Alarm clocks. There are doZens of awesome alarm clock apps. But none run in the background. I know I can call it up but too many nights I'll forget. I want to be able to have my alarm go off, and either launch a podcast or launch my NPR app which can automatically start streaming the morning news.
The other major feature I want is better notification handling. The badge works fine for email and txt msgs but that's it. It should be in a separate program that keeps all msgs and notifications available to read and delete at your leisure.

Not sure if anyone else posted this, but wanted to throw it out there if not.
