    Agreed. While I really would like to see a new design, it's not the top of my list. I just want a really nice fast iPhone, with a good quality camera with a flash and higher res screen

    Most of the things I really want from the OS are coming with OS4

    If this is true, and Apple goes with plan B, then I'm definitely going with plan C U LATER!!!!!

    EDIT: Ok, I lied...the iPhone had me at hello!

    The UI of the iPhone is so vastly superior to anything else, I'd be happy if they just upgraded the firmware to 4.0. Anything after that is a bonus to me lol

    tell you what, been a big apple fan but recently bought a HTC Desire and not looked back. still curious about the 4G launch but i dont think even at launch it will be as good as the desire. dont mean to wind anyone up but iPhones do get boring after a few years of same ol same

    Do you simply ignore the App Store and all the functionality it provides? Not to mention what we already know of 4.0 like multi-tasking is going to open up a whole new world of functionality for the iPhone series.

    And doesn't the Desire run SenseUI? why not just throw regular android/Froyo on it?

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    Saying that the gen1 and gen 2 phones look "nothing alike" is using the word "nothing" quite liberally...

    To each his own, but all the iPhone OS's UI really is is a bunch of squares on a black screen. Plenty of UI look much nicer, but the phones have simply fallen short in other ways.

    The price has risen since 3.1.3 was released and thus made unlocked ones harder to come by.
    The comment you just responded to was about selling an unlocked 3G for $700. $325 falls about $375 short of that $700 price mark.

    If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is another lame attempt to sell iPhones and service!!! Go D...R...O...I...D!!!

    this is totally Apple. "Lets not release our best product yet, lets dumb it down a little. Give em plan B, then in a year we can release plan A and it looks like we've been working really hard on an upgrade when really by that time, we have a whole new plan A & B for next year!" At the same time I doubt after all this media they would release something with the same casing and camera as the 3G... people are expecting something totally different and if apple doesn't deliver that, they'll really be in the doghouse.. and im pretty sure they know that. We'll just have to wait and see...

    The comment you just responded to was about selling an unlocked 3G for $700. $325 falls about $375 short of that $700 price mark.
    the comment was a response to not being able to get over $300 for a 3g. i corrected my post but even if you can get $250 for a 3g why wouldn't you sell and buy a 3gs for $200 or for $50 more a 32gb for $299. the 3g doesn't even compete with the 3gs. it's like having a car with 10k in engine upgrades and saying it's the same car because it looks the same.

    You aren't going to get a 3GS for $200 unless you are buying it with a contract from AT&T, which means that you are eligible for an upgrade, which means that is probably already your plan. I'm pretty sure at this point most 3G users still use that phone because they can't upgrade yet, not because they are too stupid to go buy a new phone or because they think the 3G is superior. If you have an unlocked 16GB 3G you might be able to find a great deal on a used 3GS and just about break even, but I highly doubt most people are going to sell a 3G, buy a 3GS, and come out ahead money wise unless they can buy a new one with an upgrade from AT&T.

    If the iPhone looks the same then I wont bother with the iPhone anymore. Im not even gonna bother buyin the EVO 4G cuz it runs Android and it sucks. I might as weel keep the iPhone 3GS and wait for the HTC Mondrian running Windows Phone 7.
