I just got off the phone with an at&t rep. that told me that the up dated iphone, that will come out the begining of next year will have more memory and run on at&t's faster net-work (3G!!!!!) i didn't here anything about a GPS chip, But thats want the rep told me. That really sucks for rest of us suckers that bought the frist Gen. Iphone, but great for Steve, because not only will it bring in more buyers, but most of us that drop $599.99 will turn around a buy this model ( They should have came out with it the frist time around)

    Too bad the AT&T rep probably has less inside info than we do.

    Steve Jobs announced in January 07 that they would be a 3G version of the iPhone in the future. The AT&T rep is merely speculating that it will be available early next year. Personnaly I'd rather have the 2G version with a decent battery life and better network coverage.

    Totally disagree with your preference. I also don't think it makes sense. When it does go 3G, it will be backwards compatible, just like all high speed devices are. Otherwise, it would be like my VZW phone only working in EV-DO ares...which is obviously not true. I also doubt you're going to see a major problem with battery life just because the network is faster.



    For me, I'm waiting for the next version. 3G, more third party support, better storage, various bugs worked out.

    Did s/he also tell you about the religious proclivities of the Pope? Or the defecation habits of bears?

    It's also going to sport a highly integrated TI SoC and have lower power draw. Technology is a bitch.

    Don't joke about bears. They are godless killing machines.

    Don't blame God if you get in the way of a bear...

    Fine, but that is not what bothers me. I want:



    1. Better speed

    2. More storage

    3. More 3rd Party support

    4. Better call quality.



    I've been told that the iphone is great except for one thing....making phone calls. Anyone else agree? Come on...iPhone 2.0!

    That's generally the story with any phone that has a GSM-based voice channel.

    I didn't realize that. Kind of blows, since it's a phone.
