    no reason apple wont be using a 3G Chip now

    http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/071015/lam092.html?.v=101

    The BCM21551 baseband chip was developed on a single, low-power 65-nanometer CMOS die and features Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, FM radio, an FM transmitter, support for up to five-megapixel cameras, 30fps TV out and "advanced multimedia processing." Notably, you won't find integrated WiFi or GPS, but it does play nice with HSUPA, HSDPA, WCDMA and EDGE cellular protocols. Best of all, this system-on-a-chip is available now to "early access customers," and the low, low $23

    Just because this chip is available doesn't necessarily mean apple is going to release the 3g phone soon ... I'm sure they have some kinda of Timeline thats set, based on sales projections and all that stuff... What's going to make Apple the most money ....
    Sure he said that he's waiting on the 3g chip to be more efficient.. but who knows what else is going on in his head...

    But we can still hope!

    Possible. Macworld 2009 is what you meant right?

    Seriously Apple don't look to be wanting move quickly t update any of their hardware (macbooks are still non-sr for a start). On any of the ranges. What makes you think the iPhone is any different?

    This is exactly the reason why Jobs waited on 3G.
