    you mean our cell network?:D

    possibly. Wonder what the average size of an app will be. Is 8GB going to cut it?

    Probably smaller than OS X apps as they are basically the same structure and everything. (As far as I know)

    I was thinking the exact same thing, as if he was hinting at the next 3G iPhone, because we know how slow EDGE can be. I won't be surprised if the 3G is released simultaneously with the software update, while leaving EDGE unable to download over the air.

    Maybe but this just makes me think that the 3G phone will not be available till right before the holiday shopping season. Also, I think it is going to be basically the same except for 3G, gps, and video camera, and a newer chipset. I don't know, it is going to be interesting how they implement the 3G iPhone with only pissing off the least amount of people. I wouldn't mind getting a new iPhone for xmas with 32GB.

    Most apps will probably be 1mb or less. Games probably 30-100mb.

    what about Adobe Photoshop Touch? This has to be around 1GB.

    EDIT: except for the fact that I used a parallels mockup of the phone. Doh!

    EDIT: there I fixed it.

    did anyone notice that the icons for the calculator and the itunes store were different in the SDK presentation, The Itunes store had a music note on it and the calculator had square buttons instead of round.

    Man some of you guys need to take the tin foil hats off.
    "Cell network" is a common generic term for ANY cell phone system.
    Same applies to WiFi.
    How many of you say I connect to my 802.11x network... none.
    You all say WiFi. :rolleyes:

    All the apps we currently download via the Installer app can be done so over either the "cell network" (EDGE) or WiFi.
    Apple just took the idea and applied it to their own offering.
