Okay, when we were waiting for the SR MBs there were endless threads about what was in the pipeline. MR changed their Buyer's Guide advice on the iPhone to Recommendation:Buy only if you need it - Approaching the end of a cycle * sometime last week. IIRC Still no threads with endless speculation about what prompted the Buyer's Guide change. Here is a rundown on the situation as I see it. The iPhone is coming out in UK and Germany on Friday. Is there any chance this could be a new model with minor upgrades and 16GB memory? Then again there is a theory that there will be a new model at MW on 01/08. OTOH there are those who say Apple wouldn't slap the UK, German and Canadian buyers in the face by pulling out a new model within 60 days of selling them iPhone #1. OTOH SJ said there was no 3G model coming for at least six months. Why has the MR buyers guide changed and what are people expecting.
