We don't even know exactly when the first iPhone is being released!when will the second generation iPhone be released and is it going to allow for enough time to workout the kinks in the first iPhone?
As opposed to Microsoft products?Often for Apple products, later generations have fewer problems
Yes, Apple does offer Dovrak in all of its international settings. On my Mac-book pro, I set it to Dovrak and moved all of my keys around so the layout would correspond. My only concern is that the key positions on the phone would be permanently fixed in qwerty. If anyone has any insight that would be great. Thanks.It seems it would be simple to do this. What about international keyboard layouts? That is similar.
I think that's what we're really talking about, the ability for Apple to move keys around easily because they are soft keys.Yes, Apple does offer Dovrak in all of its international settings.

Agreed. To elaborate further, future versions will undoubtedly have more memory, but what I really want is an iPhone with a slot for an SD card. This opens the door to many possibilities, such as being able to watch a borrowed movie.Future iPhone wishes: More memory and sprint compatibility. Woot!
Seems like you were being a tiny bit sarcastic, but tell me if I'm wrong. I seriously advocate Apple products, but I have also been a technician for quite some time now and it seriously is in the coding and the way the OS is integrated with the hardware, etc. Some OS's are built stronger than others and some (in my oppinion) need to get their programmars together and smack some sense into them and advise going back to the drawing board. It truly makes the difference. All OS's, REGARDLESS of platform, have issues in the beginning. They fix them, and all we can say is "duh!" and they get better and learn from their mistakes.As opposed to Microsoft products?
Actually, I wasn't being sarcastic. I was just pointing out a humorous implicit contrast to the posters claim that "often for Apple products, later generations have fewer problems." (The implication being that for other companies, such as Apple's rival, Microsoft, later generations have more problems.) Not saying it's true, but I found the juxtaposition funny. I do have my opinion, though.Seems like you were being a tiny bit sarcastic, but tell me if I'm wrong.
I really agree with your thing about the camera. The iPhone isn't to replace your camera, its to replace your lame broken RAZR. and don't tell me you don't have a RAZR and don't tell me its not broken, because everyone has had a RAZR and everyone has broken one. And everyone has to shield the screen from the sun when you look at it because the screen has all kindsof dirt or something in it. 2 MP is fine for a camera and its intended purpose on a cell phone. And besides, if you think your not gonna be able to change the resolution on the camera to a high quality, your wrong.I was going to hold off posting here until iPhone v1 comes out, but I'm weak.
We don't need to ask for more internal RAM; it's inevitable and will happen anyway. (Cynic that I am, I'll bet there's already a 16 GB iPhone on the shelf, waiting until January 15, 2008 when it will be announced at the San Fran Macworld Expo.)
- We don't yet really know if battery life will be the problem critics are making of it.
- 3G would be nice but would be a battery drain and I don't need it. It would improve web browsing a bit. If I absolutely, positively must download something big before I get home, I'm sure I can find a hot spot.
- GPS'd be cute, but my car has that already and I don't usually need satellite triangulation when I'm walking around.
- Another port may be handy but is not necessary: you can back up when docked, and input will be via the iPod connector.
- Two megapixels is fine for "These are my drunk friends!" or "What a cute puppy." or "Honey, is this the one you wanted me to buy?" Megapixels alone don't make good photographs. Everyone wants more megapixels. A gigunda-pixel cam would just fill memory faster. I'll be taking serious photos with a device designed for that purpose: a camera. One with a lenscap, btw (buffing iPhone's lens with your handbag won't help your megapixels any).
- Like Jobsy said, "Stylus, shmylus."
The only hardware change I'd write Apple for as of now would be a microSD slot, and a juicier battery if it's an issue. I think much of what I'll want will be on the software end (this includes VoIP if people want it), not the hardware end, starting with a backup app the save not the data but the state of the iPhone.
My 2¢. Okay, 4¢.
I'm with you on these types of features. I think the iPhone is going to be much more than a phone. More like an ultra portable computer, leapfrogging pda and tablet.I'm surprised that this hasn't been talked about yet - or at least I haven't SEEN it been talked about...
But how about remote desktop features? It would be great to be somewhere traveling, and be able to acess my home MAC (files, iTunes) And control my desktop wherever I am.
Or perhaps something that automatically syncs it no matter where you are. i.e. I update my iCal on myiPhone and it automatically updatesd my iCal at home. I think Steve Jobs elluded to this sort of sync-ing - but it will be interesting to see how well it works out.
Are you from Venice? I ask you because I saw that you want 3G on iPhone, and this is an european technology, so I think you're italian like me3G, video, more memory, gps and maybe a lower price and multiple carriers. That's what I'd like to see, if I live long enough.
