    When I googled "iphone 4G", I found lots of postings about it. Do you expect that it will be available this year? Do you think Apple will use the metal case instead of the easy-to-get-cracks plastic case?

    It is only a few months, though, until we start seeing speculation. Informed or more likely not. About what features will be in the next model.

    I think that, with the precedent of the last 2 versions, that there won't be an "iPhone 4G" until LTE is supported. So at least 3 years out for that name.

    Actually, is the next update for 3GS 4G?

    Thanks for all of your replies.

    Agreed, so far it has only been in June or July. However, Apple did introduce a 16GB version of the original iPhone in February 2008.

    And there's very little chance they'll go back to a metal case.

    No to this year and a no for 4G.

    4G has quite a ways to go. We just got an iPhone 3G last year.

    Why? I saw many postings about plastic cases having cracks.

    okay so ive seen like all these new windows HTC phones
    like
    HTC HD2 which has like 5 megapixel and large screen really slim
    flash etc.
    and nokia phones like the n9000

    these phones are better or up to par with the iPhone
    so since apple had from iPhone 3G release till next year to develop a new
    4G cuz the 3Gs was barley an upgrade

    but do u think with all this time
    Apple will finally release an actaul good iPhone
    with like 3-5 megapixel camrea, flash, better overal design
    and such
    or will they give us a ****** update
    cuz i really wanna get the new
    HTC HD2 but imma hold off until i can see the new iPhone 4G
    hopefully Apple puts out an amzing phone

    Because metal cases seriously block both wifi and cellular signals--whereas they travel through plastic much more smoothly.

    I'm buying the HD2 the second it is available in the US. That is one sweet phone. 4" screen? Wow, very nice.
