    We need a separate forum than the iPhone forum for iPhone 3G related things.

    I don't think we do, can you give us any reasons why you think that we do other than saying that they are separate products? The iBook and MacBook share a forum and it is working perfectly fine there.

    Really? I'm not totally convinced. I know we don't need a new forum for each MB, MBP, MP update, but this seems substantively different, no?

    Why? To keep the two products separate.

    Thank YOU!

    We're not going to generate a new forum with new stickies and links every time Apple release a new iPhone. But what we do, is to update stuff as we go along and maybe split off sub-forums if new parallel product lines get introduced.

    The Mac Mini doesn't even have its own forum. The Apple TV does, but the Mac Mini doesn't. Why should an UPDATE of the iPhone have one? It's not substantially different.

    The original iPhone and iPhone 3G are exactly the same except for slight cosmetic differences, GPS, and a 3G radio.

    Oh yeah, don't forget the flush headphone jack!! :rolleyes:

    Well, now. Maybe the OP killed this himself.

    If a Moderator says, "No, we don't.", the wise person would leave it alone! Better to use the existing forums than risk getting banned!

    Be easy on the OP! They've already got 27 posts (nearly 20% of which are in this thread), and obviously have a refreshing and crystalline insight into what MR needs.













    Oh, poo. I forgot that sarcasm tag...

    It doesn't work like that. :D

    It's just my personal opinion; it's not within my power to create new forums but I've been here long enough to know it's a non-starter, especially just hours before a new and highly-anticipated product release.

    On that note I would love to see a AEBS, time capsule, and ipod sock forum added. Thank you. ;)

    really? i mean really?

    a part of me sure hopes that this whole thread was a joke from the start, sadly, it doesn't look that way.

    Is the v3 iPhone likely to have 4G? 801.21? LTE? WiMax?
    Probably better to stick to v3 iPhone, until there's a better word for it. But that's 20 odd million 3G iPhone sales away!

    One for each color? :D

    Let's all relax and chill out over the craziness that will be MR for the next week or so and then look at what, if anything, is needed to do about the 3G iPhone.
