    OS 2.0 offered the ability to natively write apps
    OS 3.0 added mms, cut/copy/paste, and push notifications
    OS 4.0 added multitasking, unified inbox etc
    -I personally believe pretty much all of those should have been included from day one and not spanned over 3 years but whatever

    iPhone 3G added GPS, and different case design
    iPhone 3G added video, faster processor and a compass
    iPhone 4G is runored to have front facing camera, (hopefully) complete revamping of the design, higher resoltion display, new processor architecture

    which leads me to my question, what could iPhone OS 5.0 and the iPhone 4G offer besides small features + speed and memory bumps? Could apple have possibly made the final revision as far as major features go?

    Probably non interactive dashboard-like widgets, which can sit on your lock screen (More useful for the iPad). And a unified notification system.

    And I think you should also work 14 hour days 6 days a week, but whatever. It's ok if you don't want to but think other people should.

    Not forgetting the FlashForward native app coming in OS 9.

    Front facing camera on phone version 4? Don't get your hopes up!

    You missed a point on the iPhone 3G: It added 3G :)

    Solar panels on the front to charge it with ambient light.

    I think iPhone OS 5.0 is quite some way off. :) The next iPhone will be released in the summer - a few months away.

    It might have a new case design. The current one is pretty much unchanged for 2 years since the introduction of the iPhone 3G in July 2008.

    It might have a higher resolution display.

    It might natively support video calls and/or instant messaging. If video calls were a feature it would presumably include a front facing camera.

    It will have almost certainly have a faster processor. It may have more RAM.

    It will almost certainly have a better camera and may include a flash this time around.

    There will probably be some new software features that are only available on the new device. Last time around they added voice control to the iPhone 3G S but did not offer it on older devices.
