I have a special talent....Everytime I buy a mac product, the new version comes out cheaper, better and a month or 2 later... Done it with a mac book, 5 Ipods, a mac pro, it never fails (and I do read up on rumors) ;-) So, if you guys want to paypal me $20 each, I'll go buy an Iphone and that guarantees a new 3G Iphone that reads your mind and predicts the stock market will be out in 2 months flat ;-) Seriously... I've read all the threads and I am impressed that I cannot find one single one where the "nephew of the maid's colleague who works for the sister of an apple engineer" has heard ANYTHING about a release date, or a feature set... So I'm stuck ! and I need 2 phones, one for my wife too...Big $$ to get superseded in 2 months! If I buy now, you know what'll happen ! I have till May till my current contract with T-immobile expires... Worst case, assuming all I care about is web surfing while the mrs shops, check my email, use video phone and have 200 songs, do I care about an upgrade ? is the EDGE that unbearable right now ? Can you still do video phone well enough ? I'm more into the software features of the Iphone than into the 3G speed (within reason), and the latest upgrade is kinda reassuring, it may mean features that not hardware specific are gonna be backward compatible, maybe... Anyone on those paypal donations ? ;- )I'll refund them if I get one whole year out of this ;-) PS: This has worked with my generator ! 4 hurricanes in one summer before I bought one, zero since I bought it...See?
