According to the Wikipedia approved rumor by the AT&T boss: “A new version of Apple’s iPhone will be introduced in 2008 that is capable of operating on faster 3G cellular networks.” Besides the 3G support I have some other expectations (at least 6 should be satisfied) too in order to become a next generation iPhone upgrader:
– built in RFID reader/writer: because I’d like to buy and order without standing in line. Also a bit experimental RFID hacking with things around me, like opening the hotel room with a cream cheese box must be fun. (I would wire the RFID modul in the place of the Bluetooth modul on the motherboard) see: Will the Apple iPhone be RFID powered?
– GPS (although I am quite satisfied with the Google Maps Mobile): in the car and on the bike.
– video recorder: basics
– video telephone: just for fun
– longer battery life: a must
– solar panel: for climate change
– Skype enabled: do I need to explain it why?
– flash support: elementary
– copy/paste capability: c’mon!
– file management system: it is a scandal, that there is nothing like that.
– terminal: finally to introduce myself to the UNIX command line of OS X.
– email search within the Gmail client: 3 Google Alerts, 1 human, 3 Google Alerts, 1 human
And a better iSight into my MacBook to make normal picture on the iPhone.
