Hey I am considering an iPhone and was wondering what the latest(best) version of the phone is available? Are there better versions planned in the future that I should wait on? Thanks

Well, there were only two versions, if you will - 4Gig and 8Gig, but Apple did away with the 4Gig.

There is rumor -- rumor -- of a 3G (AT&T's 3G network compatible) iPhone for next year (which seems to be confirmed but has no timeframe attached to it). Outside of that, nothing.

There may be something announced at MacWorld Expo in three weeks, I wouldn't bet money on it. Most are guessing the 3G phone will come out next summer, but no one really knows.

I would go ahead and buy it. A 3G phone has been confirmed, but it could be a long time away.

I predict that what with MacWorld and the SDK coming, we iPhone users are in for some interesting (I didn't exactly say good) surprises.

Welcome to the forums!

This is a little confusing for someone completely new. You use the terms 8G 4G and 3G.

8G refers to the 8 gigabyte model that has 8 gigs of memory.

4G refers to the 4 gigabyte model that has 4 gigs of memory, but do not worry yourself with this, it no longer exists and cannot be bought.

3G refers to the speed of the internet over the cellular radio. This means how fast you get internet when you are NOT connected to a wifi router.

I just thought it was kind of confusing talkig about 8G and 4G which are their own things and talking about 3G which is a whole other thing.
