    Just for fun, but I was wondering what it would take for current iPhone owners to seriously consider buying a new one next year? Real GPS, a higher resolution camera with flash, video capabilities...sound off.

    3G and GPS in the same unit.

    Everything else that everyone wants, I believe is software updatable so I would only buy a new iPhone if: 3G and GPS were included in the same unit. I would NOT buy a new one if ONLY 3G or GPS was in there.

    The ability to generate an EM pulse that will cause all Zunes within 500 meters to melt down?

    +1, has to have both for me, although I may consider it if it was just GPS, but we know the next version is going to have 3G. Also, hopefully they release tethering as well when they implement 3G. A flash for the camera would be nice as well, but not necessary.

    Enough space to hold all of my music and a bunch of videos- say at least 30 gigs and maybe a finder.

    A hardware refresh will likely be slimmer, and probably 3G. Either one of those would get me aboard.

    If somehow it manages to look way cooler, my techno geek vanity might force me to get a new one.

    everything that would get me to buy another can be done via software update... Which I better not have to pay for

    new one?

    I would buy a new one with GPS, but I also need a louder maximum volume-- I never hear the thing ring in my bag. The international plans should less expensive too-- I also want to be able to use music I own as a ring tone.

    Double storage, 50% faster, 20% slimmer, and a minimum of 30% more cool.

    Basically any change of form and/or function would drive me to buy a new iPhone.
    I'm sure my daughters would be happy to inherit my 1st Gen iPhones.
