1) Steve Jobs publicly states that the next iPhone is an "A+ upgrade" (or whatever exciting marketing description he gave to get us all psyched about it)
2) Someone finds the phone and publishes the new features.
3) Apple complains that people don't want to buy the current phones now because the next version is too exciting.
Sorry, but if Apple is concerned about iPhone 3GS sales then I'm not sure why Steve Jobs was out there hyping the next generation iPhone long before this leak happened. This is truly ridiculous.

Apple doesn't force anyone to jailbreak, just like they don't force you to purchase their products, as "crippled" as many claim iDevices are, they still sell far more than their competition, with REPEAT buyers, I highly doubt that Apple's target usergroup will discontinue using the iPhone because you can't use custom themes or listen to Pandora while browsing on Safari (even though Pandora already has the app which supports this on standby for OS 4)
The average user doesn't care about jailbreaking, they care about a seamless user experience where everything "just works" and the iPhone delivers that beautifully.
You sir need an Android.

I don't know how releasing pictures/video of a prototype hurts the sales of the phone, when it's released it'll still be bought by millions. It'll probably hurt their stock, but who cares about that.. lol

I am sick of Apple and their whining and Nazi like posturing. I personally am going to get the HTC Evo and get rid of my iPhone early and finally say goodbye to At&t for lying to me for 5 years about 3g finally coming to my area of Orange County NY. PEACE BIOTCHES!

Apple's keynote will be interesting... Jobs will be pissed because he cant do "One last thing" speach.

Apple is right about the sales I have an iPhone 3GS and my wife an iPhone 3G she was going to get the 3GS but after the hype about the iPhone HD she kept her 500.00$ and is waiting for the relase of the new iPhone HD this summer. I'm sure other people are doing the same as articles on MMI state.

I Wish GeoHot Would develop his own phone! THAT WOULD BE A TRUE iPhone Killer! All those in favor of GeoHot and the likes of him to get together and create some Amazing Phone Say I! At least Droid is open and I really hope for something that will kill the iPhone and make Apple humble, they are the Communist Party of Technology!
