    How would a software upgrade mange to install an GPS? (Unless the Iphone has an replicator or a very advance 3d printer)

    Very interesting and exciting, indeed. All of these said updates, I assumed were coming sooner or later, anyway, so I'd believe this (or most of it, anyway). Can't wait!

    I'm interested in seeing how tightly the iPhone is linked with macs in terms of these updates.

    So far the iPhone platform is fairly neutral, but Apple didn't get to be Apple by not leveraging its products.

    I'll probably end up getting a mac on my next purchase cycle anyway, but it will be interesting to watch.

    That's easy. Apple wanted to put out the simplest product possible to:

    1) Limit the possibility of embarrasing bugs, conflicts, and other gliches at launch. Once Apple has evaluated the iPhone w/ few apps it can add new ones and be able to trace new problems more easily.

    2) Doesn't scare off non-techies when they are playing w/ the iPhone demos in-store. I think its safe to say those of us on this forum want as many options as possible, but too many choices to non geeks = too complex, which scares them off like a Bijon barking at a 2 mo. old baby.

    Also:

    1) Gives Apple lots of PR flexibility. Whenever iPhone talk/sales start to slow they can launch a new function to get tongues wagging again.

    2) A lot of that stuff just wasn't ready for prime time even if Apple did want to put it in the phone at launch. Remember when Apple delayed Leopard and said it sent everyone to iPhone? Clearly the iPhone had to be in a pre-ramp up stage at that point and the programmers were working on new functionality that wouldn't be in the launch unit, but in a subsequent software update.

    Wishful Thinking, But Interesting!

    Greetings! A very interesting post indeed, but sounds suspiciously like wishful thinking in which we have indulged a bit. It is highly, make that HIGHLY, unlikely, improbable, if not impossible, that an Apple employee would jeopardize his employment releasing such information, even to a friend! Apple is extremely serious about their product development: just think back about the iPhone! Everybody was prohibited from even talking in their sleep! ;)

    God Bless!

    This post was first found on Appleinsider last week and was pulled from the homepage because it was unreliable. I am hopefull that some if not most of these things will make their way to the iphone but not holding my breath.
