Anyone else think this may not be the only iPhone to be released?

I am really happy using my iPhone as a consumer level device. But it feels like just that. None of the software feels powerful enough to be considered to make this a businesss class device.

I can only assume Steve would know that there is more money to be made in the businesss sector on smartphones, but would need to be way more robust in terms of email capabilities, Word Processor, and probably would need a file system to be able to email attachments, even if the device couldn't read or play them. Support for things like Power Point and other Office programs wouldn't be entirely out of the question.

I wonder if this will the the iPhone 2.0 that people are thinking will be out by xmas? I am thinking a more powerful phone that will be (at least) a couple hundred more than the current phone with advertising and features more geared to the businesss class is on the way. Of course this would be after those of us with the consumer level iPhone help them finish getting the major bugs out.

I've sold cell phones before. If you create the right phone for the businesss class, they will pay for it. Remeber the Star Tac like 10 years ago? Those came out at $1000. Before then it was inconceivable to carry a phone in your shirt or front pocket. It was the phone that was the envy of power users and we couldn't keep them on the shelves, even at $1000.

All this is purely speculation, but everything I'm getting seems to point to a second (not necessarily a new) model before xmas.

It's not aimed at a corporate market. It doesn't feel powerful enough, beucase it's easy to use, and stylish. Makes it seem like a toy, at first.
