    I upgrade each year when all new singing and dancing iphone is released.
    This year though, if there isn't a spectacular improvement with the 4g or whatever, I may keep what I have and get an iPad.
    I'm wondering if many others are feeling the same way and therefore could the iPad impact on new iPhone sales at that point

    iPad is an iPod replacement/competitor ( multimedia device capable of accesing the internet)

    it does not compete with iPhones (can make calls)
    or Macbooks (full fledged computer)


    really people its not that difficult

    Yeah and my point is directed at people already with iPhones. Don't think anyone is dumb enough to think an iPad makes calls. You obviously found it necessary to point that out genius

    I think Apple needs to come up with spectacular improvement of the iPhone, or they will lose a significant number of customers, me included.

    Oh you wait! someone will buy it then post a question about how they can't make calls!..just wait!

    New iPhone has to have 5mp camera with video for me or I'll consider going HMC.

    All other features I'm happy with, it really is the dogs bollocks.

    Lose those customers to what? Are you saying that if the next generation of iPhone isn't a big enough improvement over the existing iPhone, you (and others) will abandon the iPhone entirely for something else?

    i think the next iphone revision will be pretty significant, with a slight design change.

    You should have skipped the 3gs upgrade and waiting for this one. I'm still using my 3g phone just fine, but look forward to this summer's iphone.

    Yes, getting tired of Apple's lack of gain on other phones.

    He's probably referring to the Droid.

    Well it has a microphone and runs Skype. I think it will make calls just fine.

    lol, there was no spectacular improvement with the 3gs. Why did you waste money on that?

    No need to worry. Steve Jobs has been quoted saying the update will be an "A+ update". Should be a good one.

    Jobs was even quoted saying the lackluster update allowed google and other mobile developers to catch up. This is why he said the next update needs to be an A+ update. Jobs said so himself. End discussion
