The iPhone came out in 2007 and changed the game in the cell phone, and multimedia player world. everyone thinks and expects the next gen iPhone to be sooo much different than the last one. I don't own an iPhone but if I had GSM I would, I used one for 3 weeks and thought it was great. I believe that the iPhone will never change its hardware design in terms of visible appearance. They might add a touch sensor in the front or the side, and possibly try and hide a front video camera, but even that would be odd. It is very possible for them to make a faster processor, and make a 64GB and 32GB model. The camera will most likely upgrade to 5 Mega pixels, and apple will think that its groundbreaking. Apple likes to keep things simple, They have released 3 different devices and from the front you cannot tell the difference. The iPhone excells because its software and hardware work so well together. The 3G has a 400 MHz processor I believe and it works just as fast if not faster than the Hero, Pre, and many other devices. The 3GS launches many apps faster than the nexus and other decives. When it comes to parts, repairs, and making accessories the closer the design the better, plus alot of people say it is boring, it is still the sleekest device out their. The platform and OS is the most stable and smooth out their. No crashes, force closes, error messages, lag or anything. Everyone will throw a fit if the next iPhone has a 480*320 screen resolution, 3.5" screen. to tell the truth the screen on the iPhone is one of the best I have seen, and in terms of typing and using the Screen, The iphone is still hands down the best phone. I have used the Pre, Hero, iPhone, nexus, HD2 and none of them come close to the iPhone, the sensitivity on the iPhone is the best. Not to mention the multitouch and smoothness of scrolling, and panning around images or lists, no device has come close. The reason the iPhone's look will not change is because it works. Yes it may be nice to add a touch sensitive gesture area, and hey they might even do that. But when it comes to landscape mode typing and browsing and gaming it is even on both sides. The Pre doesn't even have an On screen keyboard. The Hero had an extra inch and a half on the right, and WM Phones don't even have auto correct. The iPhone is easiest to use, its simple look and design are what make the OS work as good as it does. In terms of app quality the iPhone is still the most stable one. The games are the best, and the apps are smooth as can be. The developers only have to design an app for one device for the iPhones, and iPod touch. If the screen resolution is different on the iPhone, old iPhone owners will have to wait for new versions of apps, and the tons and tons of apps working smoothly on the platform will turn into the problems android phones have. I am not a developer and their maybe a way to just display the apps on the better resolution screen in the 480*320 resolution, but you know what I mean, people will want to develop for new devices. Lets predict some realistic features that can come on the next iPhone. I can definetly see an improved camera, possibly a gesture/touch sensitive area, and maybe a front facing camera, improved processor and memory will most likely improve too. but in terms of software, I think apple has something up their sleeve, and they are gonna need it. With the release of the HD2, nexus, droid, and EVO 4G coming this summer, apple cannot sit back anymore and expect to outsell the rest. Apple has had a full year to develop a kick ass device, lets hope they follow through. This thread was not made to tell others they are wrong or stupid about speculations but just to be realistic about what apple would do. I am a big fan of the iPhone, because of how easy and fun it is to use, and hope the next gen is gonna set the bar high again.
