      so the only upgrade to v2 will be 3g...

      i doubt it. apple is very particular in moving up a whole digit in their product versions... it might be v1.5... or if it actually is going to be announced as v2 there will definitely be other changes...

      Well camera quality would have to be improved and more features will have to be added; they won't be able to beat competitors a second time in 2008 purely on "hype". If its much different not different from the first gen iPhone (feature-wise), the phone will be left behind by Nokia and LG as they develop more and more advanced phones to try and take down Apple's sales. Multitouch, hype, usability and beauty sold the 1st iPhone, they will definitely have to add onto that for the second 1; otherwise people won't fall off their seats at the press conference for a second time. Eg. the Xbox360 and Xbox360 Elite: 1 HD output and a bigger HDD doesn't make people run out to buy it especially if both consoles play the same games, do the same thing, and one is cheaper does it? Just adding 3G and 3G alone to a 2mp, 8gb iPhone that doesn't record video and requires constant hacking and fights with Apple in order to expand its capabilities will not be smart.

      Like below, I also disagree.

      I'll likely look at one for myself when it comes out. I bought my wife an iphone and have modded it. After using hers, I want one now. The hard part is waiting.

      The only reason I would update would be for a hard drive or much larger flash based memory, like 30 gigs or more. This is all a pipe dream of course seeing as they would need a car battery to power that and the new 3G, but I'm just saying those two things would be my conditions for upgrading. That and until they figure out how to make the new ones work w/ T-mobile.

      i doubt you will be getting hard drives because they take up more energy than flash. I'm pretty sure qualcomm produced 45nm 3g sometime between 1-3 months ago.
