Can you hear me now... http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/183340/evidence_uncovered_of_possible_next_gen_iphone.html

iPhone 3.1 LOL.  Let's see, what 3.1 version remains permanently burned in my brain as something I wake up in a cold sweat screaming about and happily realize I'm no longer trapped inside?  Windows 3.1 rings a bell. 

I know perks, I'll dig deep for anything negative I can say about Apple Wink  It's not negative but rather it's a version number that caused feelings of instability upon reading the article.  I'd avoid this problem altogether if I was Apple and move to a safer version number such as 3.11  ROFLMAO

LOL I get it ... the numbering scheme for Apple you're referencing is a private number - the 3,1 version that was "spotted" was from a usage monitor and almost certainly not what they would publicize. The importance of it is that my 3GS is referenced as 2,1 (and then some other digits for updates) and so the rumor mill starts to go crazy because 1,1 was the original, the 3G was 1,2 and the 3Gs was 2,1 (because of the new internal architecture and processor) - so everyone's thinking something really big is on the horizon.

Could be a phone that's connecting to TMobile - that's the new and latest rumor - that the CDMA net on Verizon is just too much of a leap for the technology but TMobile's is a relative snap. This could be shored up with recent indicators that Verizon is *really* pumping the 'droid adverts and AT&T is scaling back on iPhone buys. I'd say the days of exclusivity are, f'reals, going to come to an end. And given TMob's customer satisfaction, that'd definitely put a bright shiny star on the iPhone's forehead.

May they never return!  But if they do, may we never ever condone them again Grin

yea my assumption is that its basically the 3gs, but with multimode antenna for multi carrier support.
or....

its the tablet.

That would be an interesting obfuscation technique ... but the rumor sites have been rather quiet on that. If they are classifying the tablet as an iPhone then we may be in for a disappointment. I'm really hoping it's more powerful than that.

yea. the only reason I would think it is still open is because the tablet possibly would have 3g built into it. Its not a phone, but like laptops that come with verizon data built in. Same idea.

i doubt it though. I think its the new multimode support, and probably some extra thing to justify it.
