    Does anyone knows there will be a iphone3g Pro? I’ve heard about it from my friend and found this news from dealsniper.com

    More advanced features for new version, e.g. 32GB memory, 0.1 inch slimmer, 3.2 megapixels camera, etc......

    I need to buy the 3g for my wife and it stopped me immediately.

    Sounds cool! But I don’t know when it will be released, anyone can help?

    Definitely a lot of info, common sense, and speculation out there for you to try.

    I'd buy a "Pro" model in a second! I love my iPhone 3G but it desperately needs more RAM. In fact, if that were the only improvement, I'd still buy it! ;)

    God, I really hope not! I have an iPod touch (2G) and an iPhone 3G, and let me tell you, the iPhone is MUCH more comfortable to hold than the iPod. That edge is tapered so much it cuts into your hand like a knife. The iPhone's edge is more rounded and therefore FAR more comfortable.

    Try typing an email on a 2G iPod touch. Then try typing the same email on an iPhone 3G. Now tell me which one cuts into your palm - in a knife-like manner - and which one is comfortable to hold. ;)

    Haha. Hilarious. "Slo of Lirpa" ... "April Fools". Going back to sleep now.

    As to the question from the OP...I would definitely get move to a new iPhone as I'm the 1G version and I refused to upgrade until I saw a 32GB version with video support (preferably from a *forward* facing camera for video chat).

    :D

    I got rid of my iPhone 3g because of size and weight. If they can trim that back, I'll get a new one.

    There's NOT going to be an iPhone pro. This is all some huge rumor based on a BAD speculation article. The lady used the words "high-end iPhone" and "low-end iPhone" to describe models. In other words, the "high-end" 32GB model and the "low-end" 16GB model, or maybe some craptastic phone made for "emerging" markets. The problem with the low-end speculation is she said it would be a special phone that ran on 3G, not WiFi. The writer has little clue what she is talking about, yet it seems everybody on here took it and ran with it.

    If anything, you're going to see 2 or 3 iPhone storage models and then maybe a larger tablet device. This whole "iPhone Pro" idea is the dumbest idea on the planet considering the main drawback to most buyers is price. How the F is a more-expensive iPhone going to help Apple make money??

    I would if there was a small (i.e. physical size) version. Damn it I really want one but I just find them too big! Grrr. Also II) if the phone was reasonable price on £20 a month contract UK. Both things are essentially improbable so, No, I won't buy one. :(

    Unless they offer 64-128 GB, a better lens, and give me a pony :rolleyes:, I'm going to wait to upgrade.
    Seriously, 32 GB is not enough storage space. I want to carry my library with me.

    The idea of a 'Pro' and 'Standard' version makes sense as has been discussed in other threads. This gives Apple a way to keep on selling last season's 'Pro' hardware repackaged and at a cheaper price. It also allows them to compete with second hand sales of older models. Then again, that doesn't guarantee Apple will do it...this year anyway.

    Personally my next iPhone purchase will be July 2010. My current 3G + 3.0 should do me until then. By that stage I expect to be buying the 'Pro' Model. Which will likely be iPhone V2.1.

    You know that is just a rumor, right? Just because you heard it from a friend it doesn't mean it's true.

    I bought the 1rst gen iPhone when it came out and then gave it to my wife when 3G came out. Since we still don't have 3G up at the house it's been fine for her. LOL If the Pro comes out we will do the shuffle again if it's worth it.:D
