    I mean there are two speakers. But when music is playing sound is only coming out of one of them...

    It doesn't have 2 speakers, it has 2 microphones. Are you saying sound is coming OUT of one of your microphones??? WHOA!!!

    Speaking of which, what's up with no Dolby Digital 5.1 sound on the iPhone? I mean we're spending good money and we can't get 5.1 sound? C'mon, Apple!!!!!! :D

    I actually want this, + ability to play 1080p via HDMI out. This would of course require more storage capacity and processor/graphic power. But it would be nice to be able to carry with you some of you movies on your iphone and connect it to you friends High Def TV and play them when you visit.

    Products like this exist but only for low def media.

    I guess I will have to wait for 3rd or 4th gen Iphone….

    Update:

    Ecualy why not dolby 5.1 right now? 5.1 music recordings is not that uncommon today.

    Geez, not this again. Why so many threads on "OMFG my iPhone only has one speaker workin'?"

    If there were two speakers on the bottom, how on earth do you expect the other person to hear your voice when your in a call?

    Common sense people, common sense. You need a mic on a phone you know. :rolleyes:

    Is there a way that before people post or enter these forums that a list of basics that they should know pops up. Stating the obvious things like the iPhone has one speaker and one mic and whatever else is asked alot.

    Technically a microphone is just a speaker in reverse, so I guess it kinda has 2 speakers on the bottom ;) .. or 2 microphones.
