    iPhone 4G - Nope. Totally implies there's a 4g network. The 2nd generation was called 3G
    iPhone G4 - I've read some people call it this already, and I don't know if it's a typo or not, but I like the ring to it
    iPhone A4 - Perhaps. I dunno how big their new chip is, but maybe it can fit in the iPhone?
    iPhone 3GS2 - I hope not
    Uhh, no. I don't think what they call it matters one tit

    I saw mention of iPhone3,1 in the 3.1.2 firmware. So hopefully it will not be just a refresh. Also noticed iProd1,0 and iProd1,1 (Tablet i assume) I just love how when an analyst opens their mouth, it makes the news over here. I'm an analyst too!

    Here's what I see:

    There is going to be at least a 150-300% increase of stories like these in the coming months. There will even be a lot of talk about a front facing cam that has around a 42% chance of making it to final production. Apples stock will rise anywhere from $1-$100000000/share after the announcement of the new iphone, which could take place as soon as now, and as late as 2012. Unfortunately, info like this is all BS. It is what we insiders call SPECULATION and is really more of a gut feeling rather than fact. But no less, it will be reported on Gizmodo, Engadget and ESPECIALLY here. I suppose I will stop reading the news here for a while again /sigh/


    It will be called iPhone: Jesus Ed.
    And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

    Frankly I think they shot themselves in the foot with naming the iphone. They should have just kept it the iphone. They don't rename their ipod lines (ie you don't have an ipod nano 5g, although we still sometimes call it that way), or really any other product. The iPhone is the only "modern" product of theirs, so far, that has been renamed on a yearly basis.

    I'm really not sure what they are thinking with their naming schemes. I mean every iphone just says "iphone" on the back of the case, but they've added the 3g, 3gs to the packaging and the marketing for each release. When you think about it, though, it doesn't matter what Apple calls it we will still buy the refreshed phon and be proud owners of another fine apple product.

    Naming the second iPhone the 3g was one of the more nonsensical things they had done up to that point. Set the wrong precedent. Then the doubled the damage with the S moniker. Stick with one naming scheme, not two.

    he's not talking about his age. what he's saying is that when he was 10, apple was some cheap stock. and now it isn't.

    as for the stock market, that **** scares me man. it jumps around too much for me to put my muhnees into it, and just see them poof.

    i think i'll just bet on making it through med school

    The price for the iphone is good where it is at right now and the data package that u have to have with it. They still beat out blackberry and most windows phones after there ridiculous rebates so if they drop the pricing i will be utterly shocked and surprised. Not getting my hopes up.

    just bc someone wants the price lowered doesnt make them cheap.... I especially am one to not jump all over apple at the release... just like anything else out there.. except the difference bt apple and everyone else is that the pic says it all... Apple is just greedy...

    Ex- A Mac can run all the way up to $3k!! what in the world. whats so special about this computer? when you compare inside for inside its no different than building one..

    The ipad is too expensive.. it needs to be lowered. it makes no sense for a product with 3G and wifi to be almost $800 to only have 64gig of memory.. and we have YET to know the memory on this thing.. oh the big hype is this processor... netbooks fast processors come standard.. apple acts like this is something new and sure enough ppl flock and dont care what it costs just to have something that will come down in price ANYWaY... so sure go buy an ipad or iphone at launch....and ANY smart person in finance knows to get the best deal.. the best deal would be to wait for apple to lower the price.. so while the rest of the world is bragging about the new ipad they paid $800 for when they drop the price then I'll say well I have the SAME thing as you.. the cost for apple in making the iphone is enough to make you mad to not give them any money....therefore the internet is my best friend..

    i will say.. thank you apple for allowing me to pay $29 for your new OS.. now I installed it on my pc's and it runs no different than the overpriced machines you have...

    THANK YOU steve jobs.. you're the best!!

    I just ordered the HD2 from HTC. 1GHz Snapdragon Processor for the win. Just posted my 3G S on craigslist, lol. Sold my 3 year old Macbook Pro and a 3G to get 90 percent of the money.

    If nothing else, gotta LOVE that resale value.

    Lieutenant Dan got me invested in some kind of fruit company. So then I got a call from him, saying we don't have to worry about money no more. And I said, that's good! One less thing.

    Even if they give the iphone out for free they will make a ton of money. All the money comes from those monthly phone bills and the sick contract apple has with AT&T. As a matter of fact, I wouldn't be surprised if they start giving away the lowest end models of the iPhone for free or like $10 or something with a two year contract. It's equivalent to decreasing your monthly bill by just $3-$4 but looks so much better in terms of advertising.

    No, it would have been an even better idea to jump on the stock a year and half ago...c'mon, all of us have the stock app on our phone....

    The only reason the iPhone is so popular is because AT&T is subsidizing it! None other but a true Apple_Fan_Boy would pay full retail price. Everybody else are just followers. Apple has 25% of the phone market in the US I heard. That means 1 out of 4 people have the iPhone. Unlike the followers my iPhone is jailbroken and I get the best use of my phone. On top of that I pay $15 for my data plan. The followers pay $30 and are still locked in a contract. Enough said.
