What will the Upgrade be next year?
Not your wish list...but your 'big-bet' prediction of features on the new phones.

Big bet.....more room. I see a 16GB version as a 100% for the next one.

3G is needed in the technology world we live in as well and I'm saying that being totally satisfied with the current 2.5G speeds.

Software wise I think Apple should know what we want by now:
1.) MMS
2.) copy paste
3.) easier delete for mass email
4.) etc

Hardware:
1.) GPS, but I don't see a real need for it.



so recap: 3G and more memory (probably 16GB)

this phone begs for multimedia expansion
I'm betting:
-MultiMedia messaging
-video camera
-expansion of playable video file types
-copy paste
-extended battery life
-3G (its been the primary critcism of the device from the get-go.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I'd LOVE 3G..but not at the expense of an already very average battery life...at best....(why can't they copy the Nokia battery life feature?!)

I have to agree: 16gb with 3G. Video camera is a possibility. Obviously most software updates will be available on the v1 iPhones as well.

My prediction will be that it does not move as quickly as the current version- no matter what it has on it.
Reasoning? Well it's almost a guarrantee that after the first month- month and a half of initial iPhone sales were specifically the early adopters, most of who are also MAC people. The people buying the last half of the second month through till the newest version comes out are going to be your standard user that just happened to be in a position to get a new phone. Not MAC savvy.
With that in mind, and based on pricing (both original and now) of the 1 million people that bought one, less that a quarter of those people will upgrade again. it's just too much money - even at 400.00
And of the rest of the people that haven't bought anything yet, unless the pricing drops lower and the average user complaints addressed, I don't see too many new users linging up out there, and even less upgraders.

i'd be royally pissed off if we had to upgrade phones to get things like MMS, copy/paste/video camera .. i know 3G and GPS aren't on this but the rest can easily be added with a software update .. and so far we've seen nothing via software updates but some shitty bug fixes that did nothing.
