  • AT&T Exec Confirms iPhone Details?
    According to a report on BGR an AT&T big-shot has confirmed a few iPhone rumors and reveals some of AT&T's plans for the summer. Most of this we already know but the following is supposed to be 100% accurate + wtf netbook?

    • New iPhone announcement around mid-June (duh)
    • New iPhone will be faster and have a more seamless experience unmatched by any device (could be just talking about 3.0, but we think it’s also a new iPhone)
    • U-Verse iPhone application; will allow control of your home DVR (play, pause, rewind, etc.)
    • The annual iPhone launch is “becoming a tradition.”
    • Nothing official is being confirmed, but they said that people should prep for an exciting time this summer.
    • AT&T is said to be working with Apple to create a unified product with an unparalleled experience across all their products and services.
    • Apple’s 3.0 software should tell us where the iPhone platform is going… uh, k?
    • They said customers shouldn’t need to choose from AT&T’s high-end devices because of features, they should choose based on preferences. The gap in capability should be filled with the new iPhone. Ok, bets on slide out QWERTY, autofocus camera, video sharing, blah blah?
    • Seems like the higher speed HSDPA (7.2Mbps) is being hinted at too which should confirm the earlier rumors of the new Infineon chipset.
    • The $99 3G netbook will start selling this summer, and the first one won’t be a Windows OS.

Instead of driving inovation they are again pilaging there cult like following. First they want to make jailbreak illegal now they want to hold your money hostage every summer. Futhermore, just because apple was first doesnt mean they will be best. Take a look at the nvidea concept phone. I have been on this forum for like 2 years or somthing crazy, and i have seen alot of ups and downs in people moods but this is the first time i have noticed a zombiefication of you people. Dont blindly fall into another iphone crap shoot, look at the devices offerd by other companies that are comming at the same time as this new iphone and devices that will be comming out shortly.

      I second that! The iPhone works quite well for me with Telstra in Australia. Tried it for a while with a Vodafone SIM and it failed with crap reception and dropped calls. So...... I don't know what people's experience with AT&T is like in the US but it's not the hardware and it's pointless to blame the hardware.

      I don't understand why loads of people are going that it would be stupid for Apple to release an iPhone this year. Why not relese one????

      If you haven't figured out, Apple are releasing an iPhone very year like they do with most of their other products.
      I hope Apple release a new iPhone year and hope that all you 3G users that are tied to an 18 month contract can not upgrade so you have to take another 18 month contract out!!!! That would make my day as there's loads of people saying that we don't a need a new iPhone, Apple should concentrate on 3.0 and would be "foolish" of them to release a new iPhone, etc.
      Thank you O2 for offering a pay as you go version of the 3G and hopefully the 3rd gen aswell, so I never have to get an iPhone on contract unless O2 bring back 12 month contracts!!

      Maybe the $99 notebook and the new iphone are the same? Maybe the new iPhone can be carried as a stand alone then you dock it into the $99 notebook (which has a keyboard and a bigger screen?) and the iPhone turns into the notebook's CPU, Memory and communication platform.

      I hate physical keyboards for sliding out just to type "LOL" or "on my way". I hate touch screen for typing paragraphs. You need both on a phone...great physical keyboard & amazing touch screen one. That way you have a vertical keyboard, horizontal, and slide out. win.

      It is going to be faster. Will help you get nowhere fast. With new faster dropping calls you can't even imagine how many people you can annoy, and how much time you can waste. Cell tower switching will become seamless, all you have to do is wait 10 minutes for the phone to figure out WTF is going on. Unparalleled dropped calls, Unparalleled ****** reception, your experience will be unmatched by any other device, or any other service. Less bars in less places, all while displaying full reception. Oh yeah... and you still have to pay $30 a month for this wonderful "service", and maybe extra for tethering even though its not a service and you already pay for "Unlimited" internet.

      I swear... with how ****** AT&T is sometimes I want to sell my iPhone and get a old candy bar Nokia, and go to T-Mobile, or some other phone and go to Sprint. It seems like everyone I know who has those services gets better reception, faster internet, and better connectivity.
      It sucks that you have poor reception. I have been with AT&T for years, travel the U.S. and abroad, and don't have any issues.

      Unlimited internet on the phone and unlimited internet on a laptop are two different ballgames all together. Surely you can see the difference.

      It is a personal choice. I'd much rather have a smaller form factor without a keyboard than a bigger one with a keyboard.
      Others prefer a physical keyboard which is why there have been rumours of 2 new iPhones, one with and one without a keyboard.
      I somehow doubt this will happen but I could be wrong.

      @Captain Chaos - if you do buy silent revolt's phone you will have to sign a legally binding agreement that you will never show it to anyone.


      Or actually use it.

      how about the COLOR of the new iphone??? I know some may find this silly but I still have my 2G original iphone (jailbroken of course) but only because I am waiting on a PINK color option. Yeah I'm a spoiled princess. But reaaly though, this can't be to much of a stretch for apple to accomodate us girls!! Anyone out there heard some hints of what this one's options will be???

      Not Apple, that's for sure. They will release a new iPhone every year.

      What do you mean better back?

      As for colour, there seems to have been very little discussion of this - It wouldn't surprise me but maybe they are holdinhg that joy for next years model!

      The original back was mainly metal with just a bit of plastic over the aerial. As the 3G has another aerial they cannot have a metal back.
