  1. Coming up on 3 years with THE original iPhone. What a great 1st generation baby it’s been! Getting the new one next week.

    Any suggestions for the old one?

  2. I will be a little surprised if the new iPhone has an immediate availability. I mean, doesn’t a new phone first have to undergo 30 days of FCC scrutiny? Of course the announcement will come on Monday, but I foresee an early July availability.

  3. You’re KILLING me, Willie G. I hope you are dead wrong. Papa wants the new iPhone now!

    — but I have a feeling you’re right….

    However, wasn’t there a story about ATT canceling any June vacations for store employees, supposedly so they’d be on hand for the rush for the new iPhone?

  4. Good move, since the iPhone 3G only partially supports iPhone OS 4.0 (no third-party multi-tasking).

    People should not call the next iPhone “4G.” “3G” came from support of the 3G network, not because it was the 3rd generation iPhone (it was 2nd gen). I suppose this new iPhone is actually the 4th generation iPhone, but it does not support a 4G wireless network.
