    Anyone notice this:
    the first one was an iPhone

    the second one was an iPhone 3G

    the third one is an iPhone 3G S

    So whats next? an iPhone 3G S+, and then an iPhone 3G S+ 2nd Gen, followed by the iPhone 4G, then iPhone 4G S, and so on. I kno I am getting carried away but I find it annoying for some reason how the names keep getting more complicated

    Are you suggesting they should have gone backwards?

    1) iPhone
    2) iPhon
    3) iPho

    Yeah. Adding an "s" is super complicated.

    The next one will be named Quincy.

    Thats because I believe whole-heartedly that will be the name of the new iPhone. Don't mess with perfection. Don't mess...with Quincy.

    Well jumping from iPhone to iPhone 3G S in two years, while not complicated is in my opinion odd. I was hoping they would return to the name iPhone. I remember reading that one of the things that made the iPhone attractive was its name because it was simple.

    And iPod Nano didn't stop being an iPod Nano after releases of new generations, nor did macbooks or shuffles or other products

    No, what makes it attractive is that you can do so much more with it than a regular cell phone.

    Why is everybody so obsessed with Pho? :confused:

    I would imagine that the next iPhone will be a design change, and it would be named on it's most prominent feature.

    As with the 3G it was...well 3G

    With the 3GS it was...Speed.

    Because it's amazing. Duh.

    As Anthony Bourdain said, "I'd jerk a rusty butter knife across my best friend's throat for this. Well...maybe not my best friend."

    Okay, Henry then! I suggested Sheila because women are better at multi-tasking. :)

    The iPhone 3GS BAMF, featuring every friggin thing we've ever asked for and more!

    But not really.

    I think they're gonna go into the iPhone and the iPhone Pro next year. The iPhone 3GS will replace the iPhone 3G at the $99 price with the "iPhone" name and the next generation iPhone will be the iPhone Pro. Apple really screwed up with the naming last year and even more this year.

    Next, iPhone XP.

    After that, iPhone 7.

    Unless they come up with a Millennium Edition first.......

    :D
