    One a year, every year. Nothing until June.

    It won't have 4G. 4G is not ready. 4G will not be ready for years.

    the iPhone 3G is the second-gen iPhone. There is no 3G iPhone yet.

    Well, the 3G in iPhone 3G relates to cellular service; in terms of generations of iPhones, the current one is only on the second generation. So unless a 4G technology emerges (which I'm sure it will, I just don't know when) I only see spec bumps and price drops in the the iPhones future.

    Well, they have to make another one. Not in the near future(1-8 months).

    I think he meant a whole new phone generation. I'm sure they will eventually.

    No, I quoted him a minute after he posted it and hadn't had time to change it.

    I would think its safe to say Apple is already developing the next 2 versions of the iPhone...at least i would be if i were competing in the mobile phone market

    I think they will release an iPhone at least once a year. Since 4G probably won't be ready next year, I'd assume that the 2009 iPhone will just be a re-design with some added features like MMS and video capture.

    GB bumps between Junes, but updates June currently.

    With Snow leopard and Quicktime X etc, i'd imagine it'll be strong on the video front for the 3rd version (v3 iPhone). It'll be interesting to see if they port the Snow Leopard OS to the iPhone, just as the current iPhone OS is related to Leopard. I'd imagine that multi-touch etc will also be cross fertilising with the other Mac ranges, and they'll be adding concepts from all the different ranges across the board.

    A plastic back replaced with a stainless steel back...interesting

    Better not be more than $200 or $300 though...im a 15 year old with a broke behind :p although I'm pretty excited about a 32GB iphone coming sometime before Thanksgiving.

    Keep the thread going guys, post your ideas, and we can send them to apple, if Steve Jobs listens lol :)

    Learn from history

    Look at Apple's history of introducing product upgrades and new products in the buyersguide here, and draw your own conclusions.
