When Apple released the first iPhone, it was basically the biggest hyped touch screen phone of its kind. As i recall, only other touch screen phone i heard about was the Prada, and look where that is today. After the iPhone was released, companies started developing touch screen phones. Today, off the top of my head, there is the Voyager, Vu, Instinct, etc. All of which try to put the iPhone in the dust, but honestly, they don't even come close. With the 3G iPhone now, at a subsidized price, it now puts the iPhone ahead of all others. Some can argue with MobileTv built in, a better camera, and so on, which in all, those are just the little things, but yet those phones will have it while the iPhone doesn't. For iPhone 3G, we only saw little improvements that we would expect. 3G, GPS, and a slight new design. Now, because of the subsidized price, you obviously can't buy another iPhone next year (which i can almost safely say we will see updates for the iPhone every year around summer time). You can't buy another subsidized phone in a contract, so instead, we will see the next iPhone price set at what the first generation iPhone was at, around $400-$500. With this iPhone, we will probably see huge improvements that just blow away all the other competition that will spark up this year. 3G, 5MP Camera, GPS, 32GB standard, a new look, and so on. Does anyone else see where i am coming from? Opinions? To sum it up, i'm basically saying we will see a big makeover of the iPhone next year. Don't get me wrong, i know the 2nd iPhone hasnt even come out yet, and i love the thing, i'm just looking at the future of this great device.
