    So Guys if v2.0 comes out... do you think we will have to pay for it like ipod touch users did. I know Apple said there doing it on like a subscription basis, but does that include 2.0 releases?

    Also do you think if it is going to be v2.0 there must be more features than this -

    I suppose Apple can call it whatever they want to. With the advent of the SDK, I would think that will qualify for at least a 1.2 or 2.0 moniker.

    As for paying for it. AppleTV and the iPhone are accounted for on a subscription basis with costs being born in a particular way over time. As such, you get the updates for free since you have an on-going payment relationship with Apple (via your cell phone company). The iTouch is accounted for differently (ie- all the money up front), so the cost of software development for major new features gets passed on to consumers when they upgrade.

    Bottomline, don't expect to pay for the upgrade on the iPhone.
