This will be a good upgrade. The iPhone is of course cool, everyone knows it, but it is missing a lot. Hopefully this phone will come with 3G, and video capability. That part i find is stupid, it should be able to take videos...o, and LOWER THE PRICE!

They article is talking about SOFTWARE version 2.0 NOT iPhone 2! Of course there will be no 3G support, as this is a hardware feature.
