You may want to read this thread .i really hope this is included in the *first* iPhone version, but it would be essential to be able to download content directly from iTunes to the iPhone. it would be downright silly not to include this feature. sprint just upped the ante by announcing that they'll be offering over-the-air music downloads for $0.99. Apple, are you listening?
The iPhone doesn't have a hard drive, it uses flash memory. Hard drives aren't as durable and they take more power and space. I don't think we are going to see an iPhone with a hard drive for those reasons. I wouldn't be surprised to see a new iPod that has the same form as the iPhone with a nice 100+GB hard drive though.I am hoping for the second gen iPhone to have a much much bigger hard drive. Then it could replace my laptop!
i think that is def a possibility and vvery likely, Apple is known t be versatile and easy to use, and im sure they are aware of people's preferences when typing, so it mighht not come standard, but there surely will be an option or a mode change to select the numeric keypad.I wish that the iPhone would have the option to toggle between using a qwerty keyboard and a normal cellphone keypad. Qwerty keyboards on cellphones ain't a big thing here in the Philippines (and in asia, I think) and we are generally more used to the normal cellphone keypad. Oh well, Apple will have more than a year before the iPhone gets here in the Philippines.
Have a nice day!
definitely 3g which i'm not upset about the 1st gen iohone not having...because it isn't widespread as of yet, and i don't want to have 3g if i can't use it everywhere. also compatibility with slingbox would be nice as well. next up is integrated gps with turn by turn voice so i don't have to buy a separate receiver. of course a better camera, with a xenon flash, and the ability to take video at 30fps. and of course more memory..hopefully 30gb... and most definitely a tv out feature so we can watch our videos, browse the web. show pictures/videos etc. on our tv's. that is a must to me, and can be done relatively inexpensively. anything else Apple has up their sleeve i'll let them surprise me, but if the 2nd gen iPhone can come close on these things, it think it will trump everything else hands down.I am hoping for the second gen iPhone to have a much much bigger hard drive. Then it could replace my laptop!
I would like to see a higher MP camera also, but I don't think it's possible. Take for instance, a camcorder - not a dedicated camera. Most have the ability to take pictures, but most will take cell-phone quality pictures (.3-1 MP) unless you go to higher end camcorder (with a much better lens & image sensor - usuall CMOS which is larger). If they wanted to include a better MP camera, they would need to include a better lens and image sensor which would be costly and also add to size of the iPhone.I think I'm gonna have to wait to see what's NOT on the finished product of this one before I know what I think it's missing...
I would like the camera to be massively upgraded -- to at least 6.0 MP. But I say that for all phones in general. You can't tell me that a 6.0 mp camera takes up any more space inside the case than a 2.0 MP... I mean, look at digital cameras alone, the newest ones are like 8.0+ mp and they're SMALLER than the old ones. I think it's a conspiracy
