    What I really, really wish for from the WWDC about the upcoming iPhone (iff all that has leaked is all they are going to give then I will be a little dissapointed) is a range of phones with different sized screens. I love my iPhone 3G, But the screen is just a little too small.

    When I saw the Dell phones, they hit the nail bam on the head! A range of devices that each cater to different people depending on what they need (not very Apple ethos, which is as I see it, "This is what I think you need").

    The iPad is really nice, I love/hate what Apple made, but for me, I need a slightly bigger screen. I want a device that can happily display my pdf tech books so I can read them full screen and not have to zoom and pan about.

    It also makes remote desktop work a lot better too!

    I don't want a phone and an iPad, I want one device inbetween the 2!

    Anyone else feel the same way?

    agreed a slightly larger iphone screen would be amazing, preferably not too big to fit in my pocket though

    The new iPhone design (assuming it's the real one) is slightly taller than the 3GS.

    The iPad is already a bridge product between the iPhone/iPod touch and the MacBook. I really can't see them releasing anything else in the near future.

    Why not get a Dell phone then?

    I think your going to be disappointed. If you want something with the size of screen as the Dell Streak then buy the Dell Streak. I don't see many more devices of that nature being released.

    :rolleyes:

    My #1 wish is that prior to the show's start, Steve announces my name on stage, guys walk out with one of those giant checks that Lotto winners get, and it's made out for $10 million tax free, courtesy of him, because he picked my name at random in a lottery and declared me the Ultimate Apple Fan. :rolleyes:

    Improvements and APIs in iPhone OS4 which surpass what has already been announced. Otherwise, I can definitely see myself moving permanently to Android.

    Well, yes, of course I am seriously tempted to move to Android too. HTC is pumping out some great phones, only one available in Japan at the mo(desire i think).

    But who am I kidding, we are Apple fan boys and I will probably get the new iphone and get an ipad no matter if Jobs says we are all like moths drawn to the flame and he has no respect for us idiots, he knows what's best for us!

    If Netflix was added to the AppleTV, I would get a subscription. However, I would only want to stream since I usually buy any movie I want anyway. I guess I can stream through my PS3, but that would mean I would need to take out my game disc and insert the Netflix disc and I'm too lazy to do that. ;)

    My number one wish is some type of remedy for iPad users who purchased a 3G model expecting the option of unlimited contract free data--but who now must sign up for and maintain continuous unlimited service to get the deal after June 7th.

    You nailed it. They should allow early adopters who purchased the ipad under the premise that they could have unlimited 3G access on a no-contract basis, continue to have that access, regardless of whetehr they let the connection lapse. That seems like a fair compromise. After June 7, anyone buying the 3G will know that they can't get unlimited, but those who purchased before that date, it seems like a breach of contract.

    I wouldn't even care if AT&T announced that the unlimited plan was going up in price (I expected that), but the unlimited plan becoming limited is bullsh*t.

    Well, its safe to say you can skip the WWDC then because the chances of that happening is slim to none.
    The closest thing to a surprise regarding the physical phone would be a 3GS+ type of phone used for non AT&T carriers.

    But if you are hoping Apple would cannibalize sales of the iPad with a big screen iPhone, keep dreaming.

    I already can on my iPad:confused:, with goodreader.

    I'm hoping that they release OS 4.0 for the iPhone and iPad, with no delays.
    Also hoping the iPhone 4G isn't too expensive in the UK, as I want one.

    I wish for increased memory, along with Parallels or Fusion for the iPhone that would run Android.

    1) proper file system, preferably tied closely to a MobileMe overhaul with cloud storage/syncing

    2) a revamped email app for the ipad which allows you to move messages bt accounts, collapse nested folders, and search within the bodies of emails

    Okay so that's two things.

    That's why I want to buy an iPad, but it would be awesome to be able to have a bigger screen phone, like the HTC HD

    +1 I would LOVE that. Finder for iPhone with MobileMe would be a gamechanger.
