I agree. I think Apple's iPhone resources will be focused on international versions for awhile. If a new iPhone is released before the middle of 2008, I think it is likely to be a lite version (less features and less expensive).

I also think there will be a new generation of video iPods released before the next version of iPhone. As you know, Apple likes to bring one product into the spotlight at a time so they don't have products stealing the thunder from one another.
Yeah, it seems like they rotate between their products. They did the video, then a new nano and finally a new shuffle (I am not sure about the order but...:laugh2:). The light version bit is possible, but I don't even think they will do that. I think they will wait at least a year to release another version, seeing how it plays out and what they can do to improve. THEN they start making it, so my guess would be a year and a half from now. Plenty of time to use version 1 :laugh2:.

3G would be nice, but the network is still not complete anyway. EDGE is definitely slower, and I've never tried streaming video on an EDGE device, but I can't wait for a second generation iPhone. I'll buy the first, and then pass it down to one of my kids when I buy the second.
Hey, can you do me a favor (and the other people curious on this board)? Try streaming video with your edge device, like something on YouTube, just a standard minute or two video clip and let me know how long it takes to load...

I just wanna hear the length of time people are complaining about here...

I have a feeling some people are being a bit picky...

Anyway, if it's not too much trouble I'd be curious to hear what your results are.
Thanks!

This is exactly what I was thinking. I don't think Steve Jobs will allow it to be extremely slow, with how expensive and hyped this gadget is. I would be interested to see how slow it loads, as well. Anybody?

I'm not sure I could even download any streamlining data on my EDGE phones. Either way I can't do it know anyway as I'm in Florida on vacation for the next twelve days.

this is only my opinion, but GPS isn't that important to me.

a. i have a navigation in my car
b. living in LA, i'm not exactly going to be walking anywhere where i would need directions.

it's not a deal breaker for me.

as for the 3G argument, see the thread re: 3G and battery life below. again, this is my opinion, but i would gladly trade better battery life for no 3G especially since the iPhone has wifi capabilities.

Good points.
