All you are doing is causing confusion for legitimate phone buyers and taking up time and space that should be devoted to people asking questions.
iPhone OS will be open source - If you want to tweak a phone that much, get one running Android. Anyone can make Apps for the iPhone, yet it will always be under the control of a stable OS. I can't complain with that.
No more unlocked phone - And this is an issue why?
All VOIP over 3G - How would I call my friends with Nokia 1208s?
Partner with Carl Zeiss lens and Bose loudspeaker - The reason phone manufacturers partner with companies like these is for the name badge that they can plant on their product for advertising. Apple has enough high end cred on its own, they don't need other branding to sell the iPhone.
Completely different design from the iPhone 3G - Because 18 million sales prove that the handset is a fail, lol.
Camera button, call/reject buttons on front - Camera button, maybe, though the less physicall buttons the less that can be accidently bumped. If camera is that important, put its icon in the dock. As for call and reject... if someone calls me, call and reject buttons appear. They are only valid for when someone is calling me, so why should I sacrifice screen space for buttons that are so specific. The one thing I love about the iPhone is that I don't need to navigate around pre-set buttons to do features they weren't designed for.
5MP Camera for back and front with optical zoom and xenon flash and variable aperture - First of all, on the Black Dot list (I believe thats what it was) the iPhone was voted best imaging device. It has been debated countless times on this forum, yet the fact remains, its not the megapixels that count. No one takes poster size photos with a mobile, they stick to Facebook jpegs and at most, a photo print. At this size, 2MP is more than adequate to produce the quality needed. If you really need to zoom in microscopically, or provide professional photos for a wedding buy a camera. Its what they were made for. Yes you can complain, but the iPhone camera is simply quite good, regardless of megapixels.
As for front camera, is a well known fact that no one uses video calls, hence voiding the need, lol.
Multitasking for 3rd party apps - Apple made sure not to have multitasking due to the fact that is would run down the battery. Simple as that. What they have done instead with the new SDK is unlock push updates and such so that you can get updates from say an online chat app, whilst it isn't open. (If this information is incorrect, please correct it, but thats what I gathered from the press release)
Update is free for iPod Touch - No point, because most of the updates you listed are hardware, so it wouldn't make a difference, lol.
IMRAN, 01 Apr 2009its the best ph i ever used only problem if somebody tell me how to forward the massage you can not forward messages. you will have to wait till june july. wen the new soft ware comes out, you can download it for free and it will automaticaly transfer on ur existing iphone
I wanna ask one thing.
Which firmware has the unboxed iphone 3g 16gb?
Anonymous, 01 Apr 2009i like the iphone 3g touch user interface but the things i don't like about the iphone is the ... more5800 has recall because it has many problems.
so how could that be better?
video record and multitasking is not enough to make a phone better. iphone has better user interface, speedwise, capacitive touchscreen, better videoplayer, better musicplayer, better internet browsing, 3G speed, conference call, sms easy text copy cut paste, phone's material quality, 15,000 useful apps, gps softwares... these can make a phone better.
i like the iphone 3g touch user interface but the things i don't like about the iphone is the lack of multitasking and the video recording... They are going to release the new OS 3.0 but it still lacks these two features.... That's why i think nokia 5800 is better.
its the best ph i ever used only problem if somebody tell me how to forward the massage

Anonymous, 01 Apr 2009Hi Folks,
Could anyone in this forum, tell me when is the new iphone is going to be release... moreAs a rule, Apple don't let people know what they are working on and release dates until they have the product ready for launch. This doesn't really apply to OS 3.0 as it has technically been released, just not on a consumer level.
With that said, no one knows when the new iPhone will be released. Rumours are circulating that the new iPhone will make an appearance at the World Developers Conference, in June, (hopefully) with the release of 3.0. Others suggest that Apple will wait til later in the year, closer to the end date of contracts signed when the 3G came out.
Technically Apple haven't even announced that a new iPhone is on the cards (correct me if I'm wrong) and whilst likely and expected, everything remains in speculation.
The thing to consider is that OS 3.0 is almost a new phone in itself. The updates that are on the cards are going to completely change the phone we currently own, plus its a free update. It almost eliminates the need for a new handset altogether. Camera, storage space, size and screen resolution are really the only physical attributes that they could address, and personally, I get by without them now, they aren't majorly outdated features.
When it comes down to it, if you are always waiting for the latest phone you will never end up getting one, because technology just keeps getting updated. The best advice one can give is find a phone that fills all the needs you require, and go with it. I'm personally quite satisfied with my iPhone, and the fact that Apple will keep bringing out software updates to make it better.
So if you like the iPhone, but are waiting for the next model, I'd say don't bother. If you look back to the iPhone 2G and the 3G, sure, there are differences, admittedly, the 3G is better, but the be all and end all of the iPhone has to be its superior UI and OS, isn't restricted to their latest model. Apple take care of their customers, lol.
