if anyone could get good battery life its Apple.
We will not see an iPhone this year. Not next year or the year after. Maybe not ever? Maybe when Charlie sheen starts to sniff snozberries and Sarah Palin gets a brain we will see 4G, but by then we will be long away from 4G.
Dual core will happen. Apple will come up with a fancy name and call it magical. Slower specs then some of the top android phones. (look at the iPad 2. 900mhz? come on now) but yeah. Dual core WILL happen.

Your forgetting Apple is not making 4G. As I said IF anyone could do a 4G phone with good battery life its Apple, but we will not get a 4G phone this year, if not ever.
Also thin is not always the best. Look at the over heating issues with the macbook air. I think the general consumer look at a product based on how well it performs, not a secondary cheese grader.

Dual core sounds better to me. To think that Dual core was in laptops only a few years ago is mind boggling! Technology is so insane.
Example of the Dual core processor would be the new Motorola Atrix, a Power house phone. I wouldn't even call it a phone, it is a BEAST.

then again jobs could say: PEOPLE DO NOT WANT DUAL CORE PHONES. ITS THAT SIMPLE. OUR PHONES ARE ALREADY FAST WITH OUR "MULTITASKING" THAT BLOWS THE COPYCATS OUT OF THE Water

4G, hands down
I'm 999% all the way for 4G. 3G to 4G will provide a bigger performance boost than single core to dual core for what I do on my iPhone.
Keep in mind, of course, that this is based on AT&T providing true 4G (not the "fake" 4G they're advertising now) in my area.
But since I'm not one of those that upgrades their iPhone every time a new one comes out (I only do upgrades on contract renewals), I'm okay with getting a 4G if AT&T will have it out soon after my purchase.
I'd rather wait 6-12 months for 4G than have to wait up to two years to get 4G right after buying a non-4G upgrade.

AT&T is taunting me, BUT I have a feeling that within the next year (the remainder of my AT&T contract) that my town will have 3G. I drove to Mackinaw City and did a speed test of both the AT&T 3G, and the speed via my Verizon MiFi. The 3G speeds averaged around 7Mbps, Verizon averaged around 2Mbps.
As soon as we have 3G here, I am dumping the Mifi and signing up for the tethered plan. I am usually around Wifi, however, when I go shopping I like having Pandora or TuneIn Radio to listen to, and I rarely hit even 500Megs of usage. Only time I hit 1Gig was when my girlfriend and I went to the Detroit Zoo, and that was mostly listening to BassDrive, No Agenda Stream or TWiT Live on the drive down and back.
