Some believe it's a poor "cut and paste" job where Airport (Extreme) was copied and renamed iPhone.

However, perhaps Apple will be releasing an iPhone with 802.11n support. :p

Why do people get pissed? I'm psyched...a newer, faster iPhone soon? Sweet, sign me up.

iPhone Extreme?

iPhoneBugList notes that they spotted an unusual mistake in Apple's website source code.

One of the HTML product fields lists "iPhone Extreme" as the product name.

Obviously, there is no "iPhone Extreme" that has yet been announced, and so, of course, people are speculating what this could mean (if anything).

"- Extreme" isn't an Apple thing, is it?

"Airport Extreme" edit: ahhhh sananda u beat me to it :)

Like AppleInsider said, I'm chalking this one up to user error in the site coding, not something that will come. I mean, come on, iPhone Extreme just sounds LAME.

Bring on the Extreme and Nano. I'm still happy with my "regular" iPhone. If the Extreme version is twice as powerful with twice the features for half the price, I'll buy it too, not complain that apple is constantly innovating.

Apparently a "cut-n-paste" error.

However, I would not be surprised to see a 16GB iPhone roll out in the new year (just to catch all the suckers who pony up for one in the run-up to Christmas - standard Apple marketing strategy)

I am gonna guess that this was just an error. I don't see why they would call something iPhone Extreme in the first place and second, I think it is still too early for another version of the iPhone. I do believe we will see a 16GB iPhone at MacWorld, but it will still be called iPhone, not anything new.

Can't you already add docs in PDF format to iPhoto and view them on the iPhone?

we already have these 3...

the iphoto route is a bit tedious and i can't download pdf's from the webor idisk and read them offline later.

well, if ical and adressbook are fully editable and sync back to my mac than i'm closer to an iphone than i thought. but i think if you are away from your mac you can only see subscribed ical calenders via .mac and those are not editable. the calendars that you synce back home might be outdated. so it's not a fully web based calendar i guess. same for adressbook. is that correct?

What does it say now? Also doesn't apple always try and hide the things that are true. If they just left it everyone WOULD think its just a coding error and move on with their lives.
Now it just says "iPhone"... They're pretty good about fixing any mistakes, accidental or not.
