Engadget has an article on a new iPod clock radio speaker system. It says compatible with iPhones manufactured after Jan 1. Apparently that's also on the amazon page selling the product. What do they know that we don't?
However inticing a new Iphone this soon would be, I doubt that a third party speaker/alarm clock/ iphone holder manufacturer would have any more inside knowedge of Apples next gen Iphone release plans.
just think about it for a second.... what possible specification change could Apple make to the Doc connector which would force all the "old" iphones to not work. Anything they did to that effect would also mean all the "current" ipods would also not work! which in turn means that everything ipod will be obsolete in 3 months time!! I don't think so
It could be that the current iPhone has a doc connector problem that is being changed so as to be more compatible with other iPods, or it could be a shielding system so the phone can work with speakers without having to be put in airplane mode.
It's probably just the creator of the PDF having a sense of humor. I would do the same thing for kicks if I had a product and a chance to create the PDF for it. Just to get the mac rumor community all worked up throw a, "compatible with iPhone extreme models built after 1/1/2008" in it and let the good times roll.
Too many coincidence... A contest where you can win an iPhone but just in january 2008, and now this product compatible with iPhone made in january...
And when I ask a Rogers Technician how to set my EDGE user and password, he knew the iPhone very well...
That's it, iPhone2 in january with launch in Canada on Rogers.
