  • Three iPhones to be Announced in June?


    It isn't as crazy as it sounds. According to a report by the Commercial Times apple will be launching three iPhones in June. First a 2.75g (edge like the original iPhone), an updated 3g, and a Chinese targeted CDMA version. The updated 3g phone is no surprise as we have already been expecting it for months.

    The CDMA version is a direction Apple will have to go eventually if they want to put the iPhone on every network worldwide. If released possibly some hacking could put that CDMA phone on carriers like Verizon (who refused the iPhone originally).

    The new edge version if it really is real would most likely be very similar to the original iPhone. In fact why not just pick up a 1st generation iPhone off of ebay? I can't really see it as Apple's style to go backwards in product development but it could be a decent move if marketed as one of those phones that you get for free when signing a contact with a carrier -- fully subsidized.

    Might as well throw in here that the Commercial Times report specifically denies the possibility of an iPhone nano. No mini iPhone for you!

    edit: if it isn't obvious that is just an artist's concept of the next iPhone. The image is NOT a real 3rd generation iPhone

      Evidently not.
      The Klipsche, if I'm not mistaken (as I have one of their products) is an portable external speaker system that allows the i\phone to be docked whilst being used to output its music etc.

      On my iPhone 3G, charging is not supported. On my wife's 1st gen iPhone, it does charge the device whilst docked.

      I think this is what the original poster was referring to. Most 3rd party accessories that were charging/compatible are not with the 3G version of the iPhone.

      The 2G had a metal back with plastic covering the aerial. The 3G has a plastic back because it has 2 aerials.
      I never had any issues on the 1st gen phone with reception. I work in out of the way places too so I don't believe the hype. It always performed flawlessly. My issue was the sound quality. The 2nd gen iPhone blows the 1st gen out of the water in that aspect. I got tired of having to ask people to repeat themselves due to the volume not being loud enough. I even exchanged it once thinking I had a bad model, but that was not the case.

      The 3G has one aerial for 2G reception which is the same as the 2G iPhone, the second aerial is for 3G reception, if the 3G had the same back as the 2G you would still be able to get 2G reception just not 3G.

      No,
      one single dock does not work for me. you are missing my point.
      I have 2 JBL donut speakers. One by my bed to charge my iPhone at night and to use as an alarm clock, sexy time music, etc. The other is in the office in my home.

      Then, in my Living Room, I have the Awesome Klipsche system with sub and dock.
      When I go from room to room, I dock my iPhone to charge it & listen to music.

      THE LAST THING I WANT TO DO IS CARRY AROUND A DAMN CHARGER FROM ROOM TO ROOM, WORK, TRUCK, CAR, SHOP, BACK INTO THE HOUSE,ROOM TO ROOM, etc. JUST TO KEEP MY PHONE CHARGED!
      Why?,...When I have DOCKS THAT HAVE BAD *** SPEAKERS, MADE FOR MY iPhone.
      I JUST DON"T UNDERSTAND WHY THE 3G phones don't support charging? SURE HOPE THE NEW ONES DO!!

      No need to SHOUT!

      Apple removed 12V Firewire charging from the 3G - I doubt if they'll put it back in the new one.

      Hella ugly but as if WE would ever see a REAL PICTURE this early in the marketing game and scheme.

      Just another persons rendition of what it MIGHT look like. (yeah right, good luck on dreaming what the Apple designers have in store!)

      Waiting for phones was never this bad, pitty the technophobes... LOL.

      Isamu Sanada does do some nice designs. Maybe Apple should employ him!

      As this is just someone's mock up I really wouldn't read too much into it.

      I've had video calling capability for the past 6 yrears and used it twice, it's really not that good.

      Mine are all just to ugly to want to see!

      It was nice when my brothers family all sang Happy birthday to me on the phone today but I wouldn't want to watch them do it. And I certainly wouldn't want to see what my other brother was upto
