    Did they mean 3. quater of fiscal year 2007? Anyway i think it sort of makes sense for the real smart phone to arrive in q3, because thats arround when they have their developer conference.
    I believe so. I just hope they release the first version in January. It will go a long way for me to hold out till Q3.

    I must admit -- the hype of iPhone is fun. It's amazing to see how many people have gone to great lengths "photoshoping" an iPhone concept.

    Wow! Thanks for the link.

    There are a lot of designs floating around out there. Do you think any of them *could* be a legitimate leak?

    I especially liked these:

    Do you think it will have a full keyboard. I've become very comfortable with the full keyboard and it would be really hard to go back to a 0-9 button data entry method.

    It figures...the iPhone I like best won't allow the image to load (first link)...hmmm...conspiracy?
    I downloaded it and hosted it.

    This is a NICE lookin' phone. And there wouldn't be any of that "I ran out of memory" stuff with a 40-80Gig HD

    I read that on another website this past weekend. I was sick and on medication, so I'm not sure which site I was at. That would explain a lot.

    I hope it's released with iTV in at the MacExpo

    Also, if it doesn't have a designated "carrier" will it be GSM? Hope so

    I remember reading many months ago someone speculating that Jobs would announce the iPhone before Christmas to encourage shoppers to hold off on their cellphone purchases for a couple months 'til the iPhone is released.

    So to me, it sounds credible.

    It's very hard to believe...if Steve wanted to REALLY cut into phone sales this holiday season, why not release earlier? Or at least put the tease out and allow everyone to start placing order in early 2007?

    Still, I'll keep my fingers crossed. I've been weak and visited the Cingular store at the mall this past weekend.

    Releasing the iPhone today did not make any sense. Admittedly though, I couldn't figure out what was going to be "punch line" of the hoax posted on Gizmodo. So we now know LinkSys/Cisco owns the name iPhone and they've released a new device today.

    Any idea on Apple's name for their phone?

    Apple Phone ?
    iPod Cell :o
    Call Pod

    I think it's hilarious how the whole media (and everyone else, in-turn)erupts with amazement and disappointment that Apple won't be introducing a product named the iPhone.

    Even money says Apple keeps the name simple: Apple Phone

    Otherwise consider the following "i" monikers such as:

    iCommunicator
    iTeleF
    iSpeak
    iTalk
    iPod-Phone

    Remember, the unit will be more than a phone (hopefully). It should merge the ipod/ pda/ and phone. Thus, "iphone" would not do justice.

    Therefore, here are my thoughts for names:

    ipod mobile (why not keep it in the same family name?)
    igo (though I think the name is already taken)
    ithink
    ipad
    isight

    I have a prediction. As I was thinking today, it occurred to me that the new iPhone/iPod is going to be a wireless connecting appliance that is integrated with iTV, AirPort, and Macintosh Computers. There is a strong possibility that you might be able to access your "iTunes" library remotely and download songs to your iPod/Connect device. Perhaps it will even behave as a RF or infrared remote for iTV. So I thought a befitting name for the formerly named iPhone would be "iPod-Connect."

    iPod-Connect would have the following capabilities -- WiFi, cell phone svcs, Bluetooth, broadband UMTS, Infra-Red or RF, streaming video playback to iTV, etc.)

    Why does everything have to integrate with everything Apple offers? Why can't it just be a phone, designed by Apple, that has such a great UI and syncs 1stly with iCal and Address Book and uses Mail to access your email? That's all I want, something to keep carry my calendar and address book around with in a nice looking phone. I'm tired of my Treo. It's big and bulky and annoying, but I love it too much to get rid of it for something lower.

    Keyboard or no keyboard? Either way, very interesting...
