    ...Gah, been waiting since August. When it got to November and Australia had steady supplies i thought 'Oh well, only another month or two. Surely we'll see an update.

    And here we are still on the same model. Anyhow, taking the plunge in a couple of hours! Woo me first iPhone. So excited :)

    I'm not so crazy about the lack of MMS and other software features. I'm so pissed at Apple for not providing us a phone that can shoot video which my current phone could do. Oh well, might as well pick up the phone and order it.

    if you are "pissed" at apple for not providing you with a phone that shoots video...maybe you shouldnt get the iphone then.

    It's been 12 months since the last storage bump. That's about the end of a product cycle when it comes to iPods. I'm not ditching my first gen phone until it hits 32GB, and I'm probably going to wait for the next hardware makeover with the advent of this new battery for the MBP.

    Do you guys think it's worth it to buy an iPhone right now? I mean I don't really see why not, as the biggest updates the iPhone could be getting soon are software updates, and I'm not interested in a 32GB model necessarily

    ^ if you want an iPhone you'll buy one. There is no reason to wait any longer than you already have.

    I figure the sooner you jump on-board the better because we're all going to be stuck on long contracts, and hopefully we'll be coming to the end of our terms just as the new iPhone model is being released in a year or two. :D

    Ahh, whatever, I still love it, but that means I might have to carry my camcorder with me :mad:

    Yeah i know not to go on a contract as there'll likely be new models before the years end, i know it's pricey as hell ($899 AUD) but the flexibility it offers makes it worth the extra cost.

    32gb doesn't necessarily phase me - though knowing my luck it'll happen in the next 2-3 weeks.

    dude, last year the 16gb iPhone got released February 5. This is good reason for me to believe that the 32gb will come out in february as well.
    So heres what I'm doing.

    I'm buying a 16gb sometime in one week/two weeks, and if a 32gb comes out, i'll use the 30 day return police, pay the 10% restocking fee, and happily rock a 32gb iPhone. If not, screw it, I'm not waiting any longer.

    Slightly disppointed, but...

    My iPhone 3G 16Gb is on hold for me right now. Hmm... Why am I wasting time writing this?!?

    Later,

    Dan.

    I am in the same boat, but I decided since I don't need an iphone I will just wait. I've had the same POS Nextel phone for 3 years now and all I really need is the phone part. I like everything the iphone can do especially the ipod part so I am just going to wait. I had my 30gb ipod photo (or classic, whatever its called) for about 5 years now and it's only halfway full. I was waiting for the 32gb iphone so I can finally replace this. With the way the economy is going I guess I'll use that as my reason to wait now.

    yeah i don't think they would've updated the iphone today. they're still continuing the roll out worldwide to more countries, then they spent so much money on r&d and marketing that they have no reason to improve a product they just released 6 months ago.

    also, i think i saw on a thread somewhere that the 32gb nand in the quantities they need won't be out til this month, so it would take some time to announce/get it into the product line

    Always said I'd never get an iphone but when upgrade time came along I spent about 1/2 hour looking at other phones on Sunday before thinking "If I'm going to pay that per month, I may as well just get an iphone!" Nice buyers justification!
    Decided to hang on until today, just in case. No new iphone so I just ordered mine now after getting in from work. Roll on Thursday! :)

    *crosses fingers for iphones being in stock*

    I don't understand the logic of someone waiting until Macworld for a 32gb iphone and when it doesn't materialize immediately buying the current 16gb model.

    If you've been waiting and waiting for a particular spec, why not wait until the next update *whenever* that may be? Just use your current phone until then--what's the big deal?

    So are you guessing they may be able to fit the MBP battery in an upcoming iphone?

    Interesting...:cool:

    Last year Apple silently added the 16GB iPhone the first week of February. It may be the same this year. They never mentioned it at Mac World last year.
