I'd place money on the 3G iPhone being a few mm thicker which will be mostly extra battery. Jobs will claim they've solved the 3G power issues whilst basking in the glory of his brilliance. Inside will be exactly the same chips he could have used in iPhone v1. The solution will be more battery not better chips.
At the same time they'll add the "most advanced camera ever in an iPhone" which will still be behind the curve.
In Japan mobile TV is the number one feature people look for when upgrading their mobile.
Agreed. iTunes Wireless Store would have made more sense (and why no podcasts?).
Heh. Oh the chips will be a little better, but yeah your solution is probably the one Jobs will go with. And he'll hate it, because he's obsessed with skinny products.
Snerk. If they wanted they could stick a rather nice one in, there are pretty good phone cameras floating around (and no, I'm not just talking megapixels). And why no video recording? (Answer: Jobs doesn't get social networking, therefore Apple doesn't get social networking. And the iPhone has so much potential in that regard….)

The problem is that the iPhone uses GSM networks. In Canada the only GSM network is Rogers (or Fido's, but Rogers owns Fido these days). Therefore the iPhone could only come to Canada for Rogers, which leaves Apple limited negotiating leverage. Neither Bell nor Telus could get the iPhone, it simply would not work on their networks.
The sticking point, from what I've heard, is that Rogers likes to abuse their customers—especially on data rates. If you're a business customer you're looking at ~$100 for 200MB of data a month. Compare with the $20 unlimited data plan on AT&T in the States.
As the iPhone uses a lot of data, Apple wants you to have an unlimited data plan. As Rogers is stupid (& evil) they believe overcharging a handful of people for data makes them more money then having a couple hundred thousand people at (say) $30 a month using somewhat more data.
 Canada has around a tenth of the USA's population, and as they've passed a million in a couple months sold there I don't think it would be hard to imagine a couple hundred thousand iPhones sold here in say 6 months, plus all the other people in Canada that would love to have unlimited data.
