(I'm adding "Discuss" to the title so people don't think I'm sharing actual news) Of all the potential new features of iPhone 2 I've seen requested, dreamed about, and complained about around here, two I'd welcome most have gotten no love: 1. More memory 2. A faster CPU They're not sexy new features, so the typical user really shouldn't care. But it's pretty simple. iPhone currently comes with 128 MB of memory, and it doesn't use the remaining flash. If an app runs out of memory, given everything that's running at the time, it quits. This is why your Safari sometimes "crashes"; this is why it happens more often when you're playing music. iPhone's CPU is fast enough for most tasks, but with the advent of third-party apps, a faster one would certainly make things run more smoothly. This wouldn't necessarily create a "split" wherein some apps would only run on the improved new iPhone. That option would be unfortunate, and hopefully developers would still use the current iPhone as the performance standard they have to work with. But the end user would definitely see some "magical" improvements. Apps would start and quit faster (meaning, faster app switching). Fewer crashes and freezes. More open pages in Safari (without having to reload a bunch of them upon return). What's your opinion - how likely and how desirable is this?
