  • 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.
    thanks JazJon for the tip

      I liked the original back better. Apple will release a new one every year for sure.

      they still need to make some better louder speakers

      I agree! The speaker/loudness sucks. My buddies BB storm is waaayyy louder than the iPhone. I wonder why that is. Hardware size limits for the phone is the only thing I can think of. I hope they improve it on the new one, but I'm not holding my breath. Oh well, at least they are adressing the bulk of their customers complaints.
      Now we need to start complaining about flash, fm tuner, and a few other things just as loudly, and we just might see some results in those as well.

      Same, especially if these FM Radio Chip rumours are true!

      I really hope O2 let me pay out the difference of the phone (+ the cost of the new iPhone). So I pay however months left x 10 subsidy (for me that'd be around 80). Tbh I doubt it very much, but I really hope so!

      I dunno... why would some website be reporting these things but AT&T employees don't even know of any new iPhone coming out? All thats been told is that a new software 3.0 is coming out in June (that we are all now very well aware of) so why would they bother with that if they were just going to have a NEW iPhone? Highly doubt it, or AT&T employees would know by now. Last year their internal top-secret-ish announcement for July 2008's iPhone launch came in.. April or May I think...

      And it's not May yet.
      I would be VERY surprised if FW3.0 does not get released at the same time as a new iPhone towards the end of June.
      So all you AT&T employees should be getting your top secret announcements soon.
      Let us know when you do.

      I was not impressed with the iPhone 3G and kept my gen1 waiting for
      a) the hardware to catch up to my expectations or
      b) my contract to run out.

      Truth told, I'd rather see iPhone on Verizon. They have more signal where I go than does AT&T. With my first gen iPhone screen and battery showing all the wear of harsh daily use over the last two years - I'm SO ready for the new device. Sounds like many of my expectations may be met - and some are only hinted at.
      Must have:
      32Gig Memory
      better camera - sharper optics
      A2DP enabled allowing my Garmin GPS to read the iPhone SMS messages allowed
      Want badly:
      voice dial
      forward facing cam for iChat
      Oled HD Screen
      and supporting external bluetooth keyboard - or slide out physical keyboard ( or provide support for 3rd party vendor case to include attached slideout keyboard )
      dare to dream: 9 inch screen net-media device on Verizon network. ( if this were to come out, I would abandon my iPhone and go with this network media/internet device - and just use my other cell for dumb calls.

      Its June 6, and... nothing. We would've known by now about a new iPhone... Sorry! We are, however, excited about the new 3.0 software that's going to make our 3G's (some partial 2G's) better.

      Of course I officially cannot comment either way, as I'm not at liberty to do so, but my off-the-record opinion is that there is no new iPhone. I definitely work in a department in which we would know. I mean why bother if its just another 3G? Why not wait until our 4G rolls out? But, again, I'm going based on the fact that we knew the last 2 times 2-3 months in advance, and its June and there's been absolutely no talk of one. There has been talk of course of the new software update. I can't wait for that, that'll be super awesome.

      Not sure what's going on but with Apple stating that they will release an iPhone every year and CPW having a 32Gb v iPhone in their catalogue I would be amazed if a new model isn't announced on Monday.

      But stranger things have happened!

      I think that since verizon just released a netbook, it's only logical that AT&T release on. I searched and they have a few but none available in NYC yet

      I'm going to be happy with 3.0 and no new iPhone announced. There will be an updated 3G with 32GB though.
