3G version of iPhone will be available in 2008
We heard it from Apple CEO Steve Jobs already, but now AT&T also is saying that the carrier will offer a 3G iPhone. According to Bloomberg News, AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said yesterday that a 3G version of Apple's cell phone will be available in 2008. Stephenson didn't elaborate on exactly when we'd see it--though Jobs had said late in 2008--nor did he say exactly what features it would offer. And as for a price (currently the iPhone retails for $399), Stephenson said that would be up to Jobs to dictate.
Many reviewers (CNET included) have criticized the iPhone's lack of 3G support, particularly since AT&T has a robust 3G network. But Jobs has defended the omission by saying that the 3G chip sets take up too much space, and thus would make the iPhone larger, and that 3G use would eat up excessive battery life. Stephenson didn't say whether those problems have been solved, but personally, we'd be willing to accept a fatter iPhone for the chance to browse the wireless Web at 3G speeds. And yes, we say, even with the integrated Wi-Fi.
Man who cares. I have HSDPA in Australia and it's still shit. They claim great speeds but you rarely get them. Give me 5G or 6G and then we are talking. Until then 2G is fine and WiFi for everything else. And as for Video calls. I don't want to see half the fu**ers I call and Im guessing that neither do they want to see me. All Gimmicks. What I like about this phone is it does something NO OTHER PHONE has done simply for as long as they exist. Interact with the user in a nice easy way. So easy, yet so hard it seems .... Also I hae my music. Simplicity ...
That my opinion anyway. iPhone does the trick. But for complete geeks, it probably doesn't
LOL! My thoughts exactly. I had a Nokia N95 before I got the iPhone... I never made a video call, used the GPS a few times (Not to navigate, just checking out capability) and browsed internet using 3G four times.

Despite lacking all those features, im not prepared to let it go.... Yet!
Well, if they keep their Schedule as with Leopard we can happily expect it in 2010...
