    There have been rumours that a new iPhone 3G Generation 2 is coming out in January 2009, with a list of possible features. According to MacRumous' buyer's guide, the iPhone releases an update every 5 months or so. The next one is coming up. One forum suggests that it is actually July 2008, but I think that is a typo - since it has already past.

    So when the heck is it coming out?

    1) The updates on macrumors are software updates.

    NO NEW IPHONE AT THIS MACWORLD. Except a possible storage upgrade.


    It will be more than likely now that we will see a new iPhone every summer.

    MacRumors states that the generation 1 iPhone had a hardware update in February 2008. But like you said, it was a storage update. Any update is better than no update :D.

    Yeah, most of them are fake. Still, I think that a small update is needed. July may be the major release they are talking about. :confused:

    We were wondering in a thread the other day what the next phone will be called. The article called it iPhone 3G Generation 2 which is interesting and as good a name as any I've seen. When it gets shortened, do you think it'll be the iPhone 3G 2G or the iPhone 2G 3G? :)

    Maybe...

    Yeah, this probably will come out in June/July 09.

    Seems Plausible, maybe not really that realistic.

    It will be called the iPhone Air. Notice the tone of absolute certainty (I'm in the know).

    Personally, I kinda agree with the Articles' iPhone 3G 2G.

    Sounds strange, but they'll keep the name. Anything else sounds completely stupid. Or they'll revert to just "iPhone".

    I guess, but I think it sounds better than any other thing.

    iPhone 2G 3G? iPhone 3G 2G? iPhone 3G Generation 2? :rolleyes:

    I don't know about anyone else, but I simply say iPhone when referring to my phone. No matter what the new name is, I will still call it the iPhone. :p

    R2D2 or C3PO? This would make many people too happy (and one person too mad). ;)

    iPhone 3G (Generation 1)
    iPhone 3G (Generation 2)

    Because the announcement at the last event released the new iPods instead of the long-awaited new MacBooks, expect the January MacWorld to be solely dedicated to the new MacBooks.

    No. It's just a blog looking to drive viewers to their site.

    Why not 3G G2 G3? Because 2G implies EDGE?
