    I don't see how a unibody would work... there is going to have to be some big plastic area in the back somewhere for the phone to get signal and wifi. You cant put it under the glass on the front, because that would be shooting radiation strait to the brain, and that would really cause problems. Good luck getting that FCC approved. In a unibody laptop there is usually a grey plastic area on each side or the screen where they have their bluetooth, and wifi antenna's.

    Not necessarily. A faster more power-efficient processor would actually get you better battery life.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    That's funny.... that's the same thing I said about the 3Gs.... and I still got my 3G. I wonder how many lucky ones said that about 3G and kept their 2G? In my opinion, they were the smart ones! Those that didn't follow the heard off the Apple/AT&T cliff (for 3G nationwide service and "blazing" speed everywhere you go).

    I'm tired of promises, I will probably look elsewhere if I am going to upgrade, both carrier and phone.

    I hope they DONT change the size of the new model, OR the dock connector and/or pinout. If they do, I wont be upgrading. No way i'm buying all new accessories again (clock radio, charging dock, SkyDock, FM mod, etc). Honestly, they only thing they could do to improve on the 3GS, is add WiMAX capability and a removable battery.
    As far as the assumed enhancements in 4.0, thanks to JB, my phone already does all that stuff!
    Praise the Devs! To each and every one of you who spend your time writing code and making apps for little or no profit... Its YOU that makes the iPhone great, NOT Apple!! From me to you, a million thanks!!

    Touch screen glued to the LCD ? Damm, I will have to charge my customers more to fix that. Already cost more for the 3gs because they changed the plugs to the logic board. Hope it's a fake story.

    The Screen could be bigger and better. A little taller screen could mean more room for a better status bar, or an additional status bar at the bottom which shows which apps are running, and let you switch between apps with ease. The apps could run in a window the same size they are now.

    I don't discredit this statement, but all I want to say is that the iPad is all aluminum (as far as I can tell), including the one with 3G built in.

    The 3G version is the one with a Black plastic strip at the top where the antennae is.

    i really hope apple doesnt keep the same design as the older models. im personally getting tired of that iphone look. i want a new look and feel for the 4th gen iphone. if they do keep the same design then they would just be doing what sony does with its PS3 controllers. i dont hate my PS3 but i also dont like it. my is catching dust. the PS3 controller needs a new design and so does the iphone. if apple made a new design for the iphone i think it would make a lot more people fall back in love with the iphone. and aslo fix some of those iphone OS bugs.

    after looking at how awesome the aluminum unibody macbooks look i wish the new iphone would go back to the first gen look so it matches all the new macbook pros and also keep the current white one to match all the white macbooks or other products in apple products lol or maybe different colors like the ipods but who knows hopefully an aluminum unibody look like the ipad would be cool and as for the reflective surface... video chat camera?!

    lol this is all a bunch of bull. all we're gonna get is a faster processor, and multitasking. i'm predicting that is pretty much it. i mean, we'll get those 2 big things, and like 200 things that you won't really notice.

    like the fact that the 3.0 update came with landscape stocks, and if you held 2 fingers on the chart, it would show you the change.

    stuff that no one notices, or uses.

    My solution for the aluminum unibody would be to make the apple logo bigger at the back and make it plastic with painted chrome. And put the antennas there. I want a redesign a front facing cam and a bigger screen. Developping for the 4G wouldn't be a problem on the AppStore there are many apps with 3gs specific versions. So I would detect automatically which phone you have. I want true 16x9 keep the size but make he screen a bit wider.

    While were at it, let's just carry around a 50 inch LCD in our pockets. Really, the screen is more then suffcient. I can think of a lot more things I'd like before any increase in screen size.
