In June 2007, Apple shipped what may well be the most coveted and successful phone in the world. As June 2008 inches closer, anticipation is turning into expectation, and the tech world is buzzing with the latest machinations of Apple and what it might or might not be doing with its next-generation iPhone. iPhone supplies have been running low of late, both online and at Apple retail stores, and Apple's annual Worldwide Developers Conference is set for June 9 though 13 -- and it's sold out.
As a Palm Treo user (with a keyboard), I passed on the Blackberry and the Treo upgrades. Having the touchscreen keyboard on an IPhone rather than a miniscule button keyboard on the Treo is far superior for me (long nails). The only reason I'm still chained to the Treo keyboard is because I've been biding my time for the 3G IPhone to be released. I paid over $500 for the Treo and am willing to do the same for the IPhone 3G Business model if it keeps the touchscreen keyboard. I am also tired of fighting with the insignificant Web launcher (Blazer) on the Treo. Safari on the IPhone is far superior. I stopped using the Web on my Treo long ago. AT&T, here I come, again. Good-by Verizon. I'll be standing at the door of the local AT&T store when the 3G IPhones are released along with the legions of business users who have been lusting for the upgrade to the IPhone for more than a year.
