one of the worst kept "secrets" I am glad for the US folks that Verizon may get the nod to carry them as well, I want details already!!

I wonder if this will cause any changes up in Canada?

changes how?

We already have multiple carriers and tethering, it's our US brothers that are in need of change.

The one thing I can see is an abundance of refurbished 3G and 3Gs phones hit the market when the new model roles out, I can't wait to see what they have in store for this edition.... multi tasking please!

only way i see myself getting an iphone is only when i'm not forced into any data or text plan. If that doesnt happen then i'll just go with an HTC phone or the google phone...hmmm....if this CDMA version of the iphone does come out and it can be unlocked to be used on MetroPCS then this might be a good way to get an iphone.

With a jailbroken iphone you can do multitasking apparently, so it's the current software that is the problem, not the phone itself.

Okay...this is confusing to me, because there are different meanings of multi-tasking. You can do just about anything on an iPhone while on a call (multitasking), but I assume you mean being able to switch through apps or have multiple apps open simultaneously? Am I correct?

What I want to see is either Chrome or Firefox on the iPhone!

by multi tasking I mean having several apps open at the same time, like in the doc when the little white light is on. The ability to open the calendar while surfing just by swiping from one pane to the next type thing, instead of having Safari open then hit the home key to close it to open another app

Okay, that's what I thought you meant...just wanted to clarify. I just found a few articles which could be just rumor, but OS 4.0 should have multitasking.

http://www.appleinsider.com/articles/10/03/11/apples_iphone_4_0_software_to_deliver_multitasking _support.html
http://www.tgdaily.com/mobility-features/48813-report-apple-to-support-iphone-multitasking

The reasoning behind it not currently having multi-tasking makes some sense.

Flash will NEVER come to the iPhone, Steve Jobs has said time and time again that it NEVER will. HTML5 is where everyone is heading, even YouTube and now Brightcove has announced they are going HTML5.

quit holding out for Flash on the iPhone, it's NEVER coming.

Even Android is going HTML5 from what I've read.

Several tidbits of information about the iPhone 4G are circulating today:

Front-facing camera
960×640 screen
Called the iPhoneHD
Coming June 22nd
Apple A4 system-on-a-chip
Third-party multitasking
Coming to Verizon and AT&T

4G isnt going be any where near ready by June 22nd. I guess they could still release it but i wouldnt bother upgrading just yet. If they open multitasking on the new phone they better open it on the old ones or there will be alot of upset customers. :)

That ichat app is probably fake but would be unbelievably cool!

That's the third or fourth different time I've seen mention of the front-facing camera. The white case is probably not real though, all images that I have seen are black.

Any word about them coming to Verizon? I am in love with my BB Storm 2, but I still have always liked the iPhone.

There were rumors floating around last week, but they're still just rumors. I'm sure that once OS4.0 is ready for launch and the newest iPhone release (probably June) is announced we'll know more.

you just have to know that when the Veizon CEO says he wants the iPhone it's only a matter of time:

Is this the new iPhone? Gizmodo apparently has one in hand and has posted videos and pictures.

I call bullshit on this.

Apple is the most security conscious company ever, to have this "found" in a bar is bogus. If it is from Apple it is a plant to stir up some publicity.

Front facing camera is cool though

The amount of work that would go into creating your own iPhone as a hoax would be insane...I am usually skeptical too Rob, but this could very well be real.

according to the Gizmodo article Apple has lost a prototype, interesting to say the least... they want it back and if the fella on Gizmodo was smart he would cough it up asap.

does anyone remember when a Chinese worker lost an iPhone prototype? he killed himself.

I doubt Apple "lost" this prototype, just creating buzz.

glad to see I wasn't the only one who thought Gizmodo's handling of the whole fiasco:

http://www.tuaw.com/2010/04/20/apple-we-want-device-back/

It's the flippant, disrespectful (using "Bruce," not "Mr. Sewell," the "burning a hole in our pockets" line and calling the unfortunate late-20s employee who lost the phone "the kid") tone that permeates this letter -- and, indeed, their handling of the entire ordeal -- that irks me. Also, there's no conceivable way they can claim that they didn't know it was Apple's property, "found" or not.

We don't know how this story will end, but Giz's adolescent, "Whoops-a-daisy" mockery won't win them any new fans.

Enjoy those "warm, fuzzy, huggy feelings of legal compliance."

I tried searching but couldnt exactly find what I was looking for, maybe u guys know is there a chart comparing 3G Speeds between Rogers, Bell and Telus? My contract is running out this fall with Rogers and I just want to see which carrier has the best network speeds, I guess it depends on ur location

Phoenix 2.0

100% depends on location.

IMO Rogers is better than Bell.

I heard someone today telling me Rogers has exclusivity rights to new iPhones and Telus, bell etc... its several months after anyone else hear this as well? If thats the case It may be a mute point anyway haha

I put zero faith in that.

every carrier in Canada will have access to the new units at the same time.

I knew it! Camera on the front. I knew about it almost a year ago, the company Im working with is creating video calling from iPhone to our phone.

This will actually make me switch from blackberry to iPhone! Or just wait till blackberry puts out its first camera forward phone.
