  • Second Gen 3G Iphone Confirmed features!
    Well some of this info has been posted before as rumors but it does seem that they are in the testing phase of the 3G iphone. According to engadget it could ship as early as July. Here is a rundown of the confirmed new features.

    PICTURE REMOVED BECAUSE PEOPLE CANT READ THAT THE PIC WAS FAKE

    The first thing people will notice: the 2nd gen iPhone will be about the same size and shape as the first gen.
    It will, of course, have 3G. And proper GPS!
    The most noticeable physical difference is back of the phone is no longer metal -- the whole thing is glossy black, from top to bottom. The volume buttons are now chrome.
    Because it's got a little less metal to deal with, it doesn't have quite as many angular edges. The battery is (still) not removable.
    The phone itself will be slightly thicker than the first gen device.
    The headphone jack will no longer be recessed, and will finally be flush with the body.
    The device itself uses roughly the same size and resolution screen as the first generation product.
    No solid word on battery life or storage capacity.



    Hell Im happy with it being 3G but proper GPS, thats niiice. Obviously take this with a grain of salt since it did not come from Apple directly.

    EDIT: YES EVERYONE I KNOW THE PIC IS FAKE AND YES ENDGADGET CONFIRMED TWO WEEKS AGO THE PIC WAS FAKE, BUT IT WAS THE ONLY PIC OF THE BACK OF AN IPHONE THAT IS BLACK HENCE WHY I POSTED IT

      if they add a pinhole camera to the front of the iphone so you can take pictures (so camera in front and back) gps (how would we pay for this feature especially for us in canada?) possibly add video recording but wont really matter since ushow is coming! and 32 gig hard drive then im definitely going to buy it!

      Bet you its gonna be noticeably heavier than the first gen.

      I dunno, I'm not sure yet, but I think I'll be perfectly happy with my current iPhone (No matter how good the new one looks, I won't let that win me) considering there is WiFi almost everywhere I go and and I have no need for GPS. Guess we'll see what happens.

      As much as i cant wait for the 3G i was spoiled with my Tilt it ran HSDPA which is slowly becoming the new standard, it is if i recall almost 3x that of 3G. I know most of the newer at&t phones come standard with it

They follow what we know so far about the shape, size and color of the upcoming 3G iPhone, and while there's always the possibility of knockoff, a Photoshop job, or some other evil plot to mislead us, we're certainly not going to discount these shots entirely in the runup to iPhone's second coming.

      So a 3G phone will get you faster download speeds on new 3G networks, as they get rolled out right? But for someone like me who is happy to catch some internet wireless through my home network, I should be fine with the GSM version, right?

      I'm wondering, cause I don't think I can wait around for another six months before a 3G model is release and finally jailbroken!

      Sure the phone would have some technological longevity, but who knows what security Apple and AT&T is dreaming up to protect their investments? ~I'll just be pissed if I buy a generation one phone and then the 3G phone can start the car and walk the dog.

      As the post says 3g for sure. So this is what i been thinking.

      I just bought an iphone yesterday. I was going to wait for the 3G but because I have tmobile (still have over a yr left on the contract) I just bought it. Even if the iphone II gets jailbroken with 3g. Im assuming that EDGE will not function therefore wipes out tmobile users for sure.

      I did some research and found out that tmobile did launch there 3G network a couple of days ago in NY but rumors has it that their 3G is different then ATT&T.

      What do you guys think?

      ATTENTION MOD MIRROR...
      as the 3G has been officially "released" can we update this thread with the actual confirmed features? I am asking this since I cannot edit your thread and this would end alot of he said/she said threads. Thanks.
