AT&T to get a new iPhone this summer?
We aren’t quite sure if you have already had enough time with the iPhone 3G, but as some rumors say, a new successor to Apple’s highly popular phone is coming. According to BGR, the U.S. carrier AT&T is to continue its tradition of renewing the iPhone line each year and as it seems, the next addition should be expected sometime around the middle of June. A few words about what is “known” of its specifications tell us that the new iPhone will stress on advanced speed capabilities, with sources referring mainly to HSDPA 7.2 support. Another thing that is reported is that the “gap in capability” would be filled with new features, but there are no further thoughts on this one, so we are not sure if these would be some hardware improvements, or software goodies, coming with the new iPhone 3.0 software.

So, what would you like to see in the new iPhone – a QWERTY keyboard? OLED display? Better camera?

The new iPhone is now officially announced - you can check the Apple iPhone 3G S Specifications here.

a better camera and file transfer bluetooth would be enough to make me buy it.

Probably just a reference to the 3.0 software, but if not, a OLED display would be nice. I'll pass on a QWERTY keyboard though. As with the above comment, bluetooth file transfer would be nice. (Doesn't the 3.0 software support that though?)

I want there to be a button that you can press that will make you look less like a douchebag when you're holding one.

If everyone has a Storm then that would me those same 12-18 year olds also have a Storm. Psudo trendy Mac-Fags own an iphone. Fags own a Storm. You're all faggots.

Way better? come on you know the only reason you have a Storm is because the iPhone is on AT&T's network! Don't be a deuce bag be a man!

You are their target market. A sheep. How can you talk shit about Iphone users when you blindly follow a phone just because of its name? YOU are Blackberry's target audience.

dont worry apple has no intentions on making the iphone a smartphone/pda. there phone sales thrive off a way diff demographic strictly 25 and under/mid-life crisis range

What are you even saying. If that was an insult you did a bad job at it. And it looks like Steve Jobs is insider80 since he knows what apple plans and doesn't plan on doing. So tell me Steve, what are the new features that apple plans on putting the on the new iPhone?

its not a joke! actually since day one apple has insisted that the iphone will be a multi-media based device aimed at the younger cell phone user its comon knowledge im sorry that you dont know anything about the industry but instead of wasting our time just please dont post anymore unless you have something factual to add to the conversation

dude i dont see the iphone being multimedia based what so ever. again i have no clue what you are talking about insider80!! hahah lol

what factual information did you provide? Apple's intended audience is "strictly" 25 and under/mid-life crisis range? That doesn't sound like a fact to me. When you have an intended audience for a product and you want to maximize profit, it is never "strictly" above or below a certain number. So you don't even know what you're saying. And did Apple announce it was specifically for the people in a mid-life crisis range too? And if I'm right, I remember the iphone having the highest business user satisfaction. But since the audience is strictly 25 and under, I guess the statistics were referring to business users around the ages of 12-25 years of age. And hey, I'm pretty sure the blackberry line was intended for business users but I see countless 16 year olds using them. Intended audience and actual audience don't always match. And since day one, blackberry has insisted that they wouldn't create a touch screen phone. Things change buddy. And its funny how you think you know everything. You can tell me what's common knowledge, what I know and don't know, whose time I'm wasting. You say stop "wasting our time" like you have 50 people in the room with you. If I am wasting your time, then next time you see a comment from E.N., skip it. You're so smart I would have thought that you would have come up with that solution a long time ago. Next time, don't post anything if you don't have some real facts.

ok obviosly the mid-life crisis was a joke but the phone is slated for the 25 and under demographic and as far as the iphone being highest rated for buisness users well thats just hilarious

I don't think it's very much of a business phone either, but hey, that's what the article said.

You're a horrible attempt at a troll. You get a raging boner whenever you think about pissing people off. Be more subtle when you're trolling...don't be so obvious about it.

I also would like to see a better camera. I am hoping for at least 5mp with a flash. I really believe the main improvements Apple can make are the camera and MMS, which should be fixed with the new 3.0 software. Other than that I think Apple will stick with the same formula. A OLED display would be nice. I seriously dought they would go after the 8mp camera. COULD ATT PLEASE make the data charges the same as the other handsets! Probably won't happen though.

"..with sources referring mainly to HSDPA 7.2 support." The 3G iPhone chipset already supports HSDPA 7.2 so if it has anything to do with this it would be the network not the new phone...

instead of putting out a new one every year they should just make one that doesnt suck and then move on to a new model

They've done that two times already and they are now moving on to their third phone that probably won't suck. Try telling Verizon that with their bb storm.

Y doesnt apple try to come out wit a new type if phone?? I mean the iPhone is already good. They should try makin like budget friendly phones or QWERTY board phones. Im not sayin dat the iPhone aint good, it is but no everyone wants a touch screen phone or a phone wit a crapppy camera, maybe they want a better camera or a QWERTY board or something. (damn this was a long comment)
