Cuz that means the owners of last years model feel like their device is a fossil and the new one is all the rave and everyone WANTS IT! And the last years model is the ugly stepchild with freckles and red hair! It's SOO unfair cuz APple does this... I mean we pay $HUNDRED$$$ of dollars on the iPhones not including the voice and data plans... IMHO Apple should only release a new iPhone every 3 years. And that way they don't divide us into camps. It's like right now 3G owners wish so badly they had the faster processor and more RAM of the 3GS, and the video recording and better camera and Voice Control... But nooooo, they can't. I feel bad cuz I have the 3GS and they just have 3G. IMHO who agrees with me?
