Predictions I have

....the new 3G iPhone is going to be a complete game changer and everyone will want to have one.

I have spent the last 4 months using nothing but a 3G Verizon Aircard to access my internet. It's a device that slips into the side of my computer. It has a phone number, but it's not a phone. Instead, it connects to Verizon's network to access the Internet.

While it's not as fast as a home cable modem connection, it's plenty fast. You Tube videos, no problem. Do I get impatient with download speeds? No. Only when you need to download a 200MB file do you even notice.

When they put one of these in the iPhone, people will HAVE to have one. Combine that with all of the new programs that are being developed for it, and the sky's the limit.

The wildcard is GPS. I wouldn't be surprised if the new iPhone's GPS is a breakthrough for a phone. Combine 3G internet and a solid GPS, and it will be the killer device.

I might even prefer it over my Blackberry.....

Note: I don't just predict these things out of thin air. When I need to know what's going to happen, I go to MacRumors.

I'm already sold on it. I've been a blackberry user for 4 years now and I'll be buying a 3G iPhone as soon as my contract is up. What Apple is doing on mobile is in a completely different league than any other mobile device maker in the world. Here in Portland I personally know cutting edge mobile development software companies that are betting their futures on the platform that Apple is building. Expect dominance for at least the next three years.

Couldn't agree more.

I'll have to agree with you. I'll migrate from BlackBerry to iPhone as soon as the 3G version is out.

After its release, we'll only be about 4 years behind other places in the world in terms of GPS apps for cell phones. Just had to chime in about my beloved GPS, haha.
