    That is true, and the waiting game will continue, to see if Apple decides to use them, also.

    Change the name altogether. I have to say I use the actual phone part by far the least of any other app or service. Being the only phone with the word "phone" in the name and using that the least is kind of strange to me.

    Might be better to call it "iPocketMac" like the PocketPC's of the past. What did they call those little things they used to pass around in Star Trek for people too read info on? iPad?

    More realistically though, I wouldn't be shocked if they just drop any tag and go back to just "iPhone".

    Exactly. That's all that's printed on back of the 3G now. Macs aren't renamed G3, G4, and G5 anymore. Now that the iPhone is so popular the iPhone name by itself may just be enough.

    I don't think they'll drop "phone" from the name, however. When non-techy people are looking for a mobile phone, they might not realize the Apple iMobile can make calls.

    I don't think Apple will go the iPhone HD route. There is already a Samsung Omnia HD and a HTC Touch HD.

    My money is on iPhone, just the name iPhone. Look what did with the ipods and macbooks. After a while, they just called them by the product name. If you look at the model name, it'll go something like MacBook (2009), MacBook (2007)

    I see it being called the iPhone Video or something based on that theme. Apple does an excellent job marketing things that aren't major. But if the v-conferencing rumors are true, then it'll definitely be called the iPhone Video.

    TUAW has rumor saying the name will be iPhone Video.

    Rumor: New iPhone to be called "iPhone Video?"

    IPhone Video sounds right. It differentiates this phone from all the others very clearly

    I like iPhone Pro but I'm going to being more realistic and guess it will be called iPhone 3G.

    " iPhone "

    What other name will fit ?

    - The phone is not going to have 720p.
    - The resolution will most likely stay the same because I haven't heard anything about a new display.

    True, but I think 3G "S" has got to be the worst name Apple has given to any device. I liked my iPhone 3G Pro name and like 10 other guesses in this forum more than "S"

    I thought that at first, but then thought they probably realized the biggest improvement on the device was speed in general. Pro and all those other names are gonna have to be saved for the new iPhone with OLED screen, LED indicator and 5MP cam w/ xenon flash.

    P.S. Yes, that is my wishlist (and BlackBerry Messenger if they can pull this one off) for the 4th gen iPhone. Haha.

    I was thinking by the time the next iPhone came out we would be on 4G, but it looks like that won't really happen until 2011 so you are probably right. Maybe the June 25, 2010 release will be called iPhone 3G Pro. Then in 2011 we will get the iPhone 4G.

    Lol! Maybe there will be iPhone 4G next year, just not on AT&T. That would be embarrassing IMO.
