    Improved battery life might be the best for my needs . I wish they had a removable battery instead .

    Apple really does know how to give it's customers what they want. Slowly and over lots of time of course.

    From the looks of it, this is going to be a really nice phone. I personally love photography, and always have my phone on me, so I would love the improved camera. Don't get me wrong, the current camera isn't that bad, and it is only a phone, but it's just a little too slow and can ruin some shots if you shake alot like I do. The native video recording capabilities sound nice too.

    It's too bad I just got my 3G back in January.. =/

    ^ Its not a rumor. It works fine

    I just wonder how come no one is asking for multiple app backgrounding??? And very few are worried of a RAM memory upgrade....this would very likely fix all those 30 sec app loading problems, and "The SIMS 3" crashing every 10 mins. Im kinda worried of people only asking the Apple GODS for a lighting up logo...and thats pretty much what where going to be getting

    ^ I agree. I couldn't give a crap about a glowing logo. We need more ram and backgrounding capabilities!

    Default Next iPhone Photos shot
    Did anyone see the first gen/second gen hybrid iPhone with the colored backs? The photos are in the link called Next iPhone Photos shot. I think the colors pictured are the same as the current nano lineup.

  19. #18
    There have been lots of 'designers impressions' of what the next iPhone will look like, some include multi colours a la nano - its not an impossibility but unlikely, no leaks from 'sources' no matter how little creditability they have!

    More RAM is always useful and there are rumours that the next iPhone will have double the RAM.

    The iPhone OS was never designed for multitasking so I doubt if we will ever see full multitasking especially as Apple have stated the battery drain would be too great. If we did then double the memory would not be enough. One of the biggest complaints about WM is how it slows down when lots of apps are open even though it's supposed to manage the memory 'efficiently'. More background like features such as the push notification, is probably the most sensible course for Apple to take.

    Upgrading from a 2G at the end of a contract? Go for the new iPhone.
    Already have a 3G? Unless you really must have the 'latest' I see nothing that makes me want to change. FW3.0 (once it's unlocked) on the 3G is what I'll probably stick with.

    Just my opinion.

    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
