    Everyone does it.....Apple is emphasized for us because we're into it. We're on this site, we've got an iphone.

    I have a blackberry also, Blackberry is coming out with several new/better phones this year alone.

    Its simple company propaganda, no different from anybody else......aside from the fact that Apple seems to do it better

    Slide out keyboard would be very ugly and stupid on the iPhone. The firmware and OS is made for the multi touch screen anyway. Slide out keyboard feels cheap too.

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.

    Sweet! How much do you want for your phone then?

    These rumors are getting out of hand. I fully expect in a couple of weeks to hear about how the iPhone turns into a plane and shoot rockets. As for Apple and a possible new phone, I still think that Apple has it REALLY good with their upgradable FW that can add feature. They can skip releasing a phone this year by instead releasing an awesome FW (3.0) that adds TONS of new features. It extends the life of the current phone, minimizes complains of people who don't want to buy a phone only for it being obsolete months after and let's you push out even more units of a phone that's awesome. Then next summer once most 3G's are almost up for contract, release the new model.

    I bet a new iPhone is released.. Apple knows that by releasing a new iPhone that many of the 3G owners that are still tied to their contracts are going to run out and pay full price for the new one. It's just more money for them. I thought people were crazy when they ditched their 1st gen iPhone and signed another contract for the 3G. I'm glad I didn't. IMHO nothing about the 3G really "wow'ed" me. Hopefully this new one will.

    If anyone wants a perfectly flawless, white, jailbroken 16GB 3g around June, let me know.

    x2 wouldn't it be the same as last year. All previous iphone holders can get the goodie upgrade price??

    This is what I was talking about in another thread. It would be foolish for them to release a phone this year.

    They will probably have a price somewhere in between what retail "should" be and what a new 2 year contract price will be. Let's say the new unit will be 200 bucks with a 2 year contract. They will probably make it 300 bucks if you already have a contract and make you resign another 2 years from the point of the new purchase.

    I do believe the poster was reffering to things like apple purposely holding back on things like MMS for so long. yes newer phones do come out, but when a phone claims to be cutting edge, it generally is. let's take the razer for example. When that thing came out it had a high price, but it was also one of the thinnest phones with the nicest screen in its price-range. Apple claims they have the best, and they could, if they didn't hold things back. Nobody would be this excited about 3.0 if we had the basic features that it is now going to provide us to begin with. No company is better than Apple at not giving you what you SHOULD have had at the start until months/years later and then making you actually feel thankful for it. (referring to their phones here, don;t have enough experience with their other products to judge one way or the other).

    That is not how it works. Apple gets the same amount of money for each unit sold, period. Contract phones are simply subsidized by ATT. In simple terms, this means Apple is still getting retail (lets say 600 for an 8gb 3G). You (the person signing the contract) pays Apple 200 bucks and the rest is covered by ATT in exchange for having you pay an expensive monthly contract. In the long run, Apple probably makes more on new contracts due to the cut they get of monthly bills, although I am not 100% sure of the figures there...

    I'm already being working on slide out keyboard mood for the iPhone and it work and look good you can't even tell the iphone has a keyboard with the new 3.0 SDK it help me to make it work. The only thing I can say is you will have a extra button on the side of the iPhone pop out the keyboard, and is not a apple mood or ideal.

    LOL - it would be foolish for them not to release one.

    BGR is rarely wrong. the speculation on the keyboard is just that, and probably wrong but if he says he has been told a Mid June release then I would be very surprised if it didn't happen.
    Releasing a phone a year is what I'd expect from Apple - it doesn't mean you have to upgrade though!

    * 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 itís also a new iPhone)
    * AT&T is said to be working with Apple to create a unified product with an unparalleled experience across all their products and services.
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.

    You have a choice. If you don't like AT&T use someone else. It is not an iPhone problem, it works flawlesly on T-Mobile in the UK for me.
