    I would think a genuine "4G" iphone is about 18 months to two years away, if not longer.

    In a classic case of the hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns in packs of 8, the 2nd Gen iPhone was the 3G. The 3rd Gen iPhone was the 3Gs. The 4th Gen iphone will still be 3G, and the 5th Gen iPhone will probably be 4G.

    I should clarify what I meant.

    "4G" has two meanings: the fourth "generation" of Apple's hardware, and its also the name of the "next generation" of cellular data and voice communication networking.

    These two things are not actually related.

    So yeah, we might get a "4th gen" iPhone as early as this summer, but I would expect it to be basically the same as the 3GS, just a little more/better.

    I was referring in my previous post to an iPhone that was able to use "4G" cell networks, which are only just now starting to roll out. That is what I think will take a couple of years to appear (figure summer 2011 at the earliest).

    by my calculation, that is right about perfect.

    I just upgraded. Ive owned all three and the 3gs is amazing with how much faster it processes. I wasnt going to get one until I convinced my girlfriend to drop her 2g for the 3gs. I sold my 3g a week later and go a 3gs.

    AT&T allows you to upgrade your phone after 18 months not 2 years. Phone upgrades and contracts are separate times. I bought my 1st iPhone 1/1/08 and was able to buy the 3GS on release day.

    the biggest difference in the 3GS over the 3G (i just upgraded about 6 weeks ago) is that the 3GS seems to find contacts faster in apps, like MMS. On the 3G, sending a text and typing the name it took somewhat long to find the contact. The 3GS finds it fast. A seemingly minor thing (especially since I don't text much), but an annoyance when you've got this kind of technology in your hand.

    Voice dialing still sux, especially through a bluetooth headset (jawbone). Amazed that this is still an issue in the face of national pressure to reduce use of phones in cars.
