They say that iPhone runs OS X Leopard which means that they may reveal more iPhone secrets with its release which everyone thinks will be real soon. For all of you PC users who don't know about OS X updates. Apple just released 10.4.9 for an OS update. History shows that usually after the ".9" update the next version is right behind it. Here is a little history below:

2003
October 3: 10.2.8 released
October 8: release date for 10.3 ("Panther") announced
October 23: 10.3 ("Panther") in the shops
10.3 then chugged along, reaching 10.3.8...
2005
April 12: release date for 10.4 ("Tiger") announced
April 15: 10.3.9 released
April 29: 10.4 in the shops
And now 10.4 has chugged along..
2007
March 13: 10.4.9 released

If we use history as a guide I think we should see OS X 10.5 real soon. Lets hope that some more iPhone secrets show up with it.

Here is one of the many things I was reading about it.

"You can add Andy Ihnatko to the short list of people who have played with an actual iPhone, not a paper cutout. Andy spent a good 45 minutes clicking around the interface and let's us know that the how experience was smooth. The phone reacted quickly to his commands (something my Q doesn't do) and he even claims that the virtual keyboard let him type faster than a physical keyboard (that is something I'll have to try myself before I form an opinion of it).

The most interesting note Andy has is that the iPhone is running Leopard. Those fancy onscreen effects are courtesy of Core Animation."

But I'm sure your right. They probably stripped down 10.4 instead of stripping down the NEW os. LOL!

It runs a stripped down version of OSX. Nobody ever said anything about Leopard. Ends your theory right their.

And I think that Apple is gonna come out with 10.4.91.

The keynote states that the iPhone runs the Full OSx. I think that the release time of the iPhone will be the same time Lepard is released. Late spring.

Ok just to set the record straight. Here what Steve Jobs said during the keynote regarding OSX and the iPhone.
iPhone runs OSX. Now, why would we want to run such a sophisticated operating system on a mobile device? Well, because it’s got everything we need. It’s got multi-tasking. It’s got the best networking. It already knows how to power manage. We’ve been doing this on mobile computers for years. It’s got awesome security. And the right apps. It’s got everything from Cocoa and the graphics and it’s got core animation built in and it’s got the audio and video that OSX is famous for. It’s got all the stuff we want. And it’s built right in to iPhone. And that has let us create desktop class applications and networking. Not the crippled stuff that you find on most phones. This is real, desktop-class applications.​

Did you just watch the keynote? Because I almost could bet that that is what Steve Jobs said word for word in his Keynote. I just thought that was kind of funny. Oh wait if I would of just read the top of your post I would of sen that. dam speed reading.

exactly - nothing about using a full version - simply that it will have all of the functions you would want from it in a cell phone - if it was a full version we would have to assume that you could run any Apple application on the iPhone and that doesn't seem to be the case - i highly doubt i'll be able to run idvd, imovie, or garage band on my phone and create something that complex - i wish i could though! - i give it 10 years or so...

I give it three years. a study showed that the processor speed of devices are doubling at a rate of one year. which means that the 400mhz processor in most smart phones today will double to an 800mhz in the next year. so that is my guess for the iPhone. that it will have somewhere around an 800mhz processor.
