    It's interesting to read this now, and see how inaccurate he was. Leaning towards anything he says about the next iPhone (That it is going to have 2 cameras, bigger space?, and call it the iPhone Pro...)

    Only 1 of those is right, and it's even a possibility :rolleyes:

    Ah, so he was soo good, he was talking about 2008 future predictions?

    I'm not so sure - he predicted
    * January launch on "all" providers, both CDMA and GSM
    * Extremely small form factor
    * Two battery design (with single charger) -- one for playing music, the other for phone functions
    * Flash memory: 4GB for $249, 8GB for $449
    * "Slide-out keyboard"
    * Possibly touchscreen

    "So that covers basically all of the rumors we've already heard anyway."
    "Either way, we don't want to bark up the wrong tree with this one because insider and rumored information is so often totally inaccurate, even if only because radical design changes are known to be made, especially by Steve "loose cannon" Jobs. Guess we'll have to settle in for our usual wait.."

    Anyone for a 8GB 3G iPhone ;)
