    I recall seeing an article a few days ago saying the iPhone would
    eventually get 3g, but I didn't bother to bookmark it.

    My personal take on this is that its the customer calling the shots, not
    SJ and Apple.

    It's still going to suck. The reason for not doing it in the 1st one was
    battery life. Now that it's going to be added, there will be no battery
    life. Maybe there going to make a battery access door.

    If that were to happen Plan to carry around a few extra.

    Battery life was _never_ the reason for the lack of 3G on the first version
    of the iPhone. If battery life was a concern then they wouldn't have
    included 802.11g either. Battery life was a rationalization used by Apple
    when they were criticized for the lack of 3G.

    > If that were to happen Plan to carry around a few extra.


    Battery life will be shorter than with EDGE, but will still be acceptable.

    Apple had no choice but to pre-announce 3G, as they are losing a lot of
    sales to other devices due to this issue. The major reason that the iPhone
    has been doing so poorly in Europe is the lack of 3G. Sales have been far,
    far, below expectations. The price is one issue, but people would have paid
    the price if the iPhone had 3G, which is even more important in Europe
    because there is less free WiFi than in the U.S..

    Then by your logic the only acceptable device is a battery in a box that
    does nothing at all.

    I am amused over how some of the iPhone-haters believe they "know" what
    Apple's true intentions were. Hysterical.

    There is a fine line between the iPhone-haters and the fanboys (especially
    in the logic department).

    Geez you're dense.

    I was explaining to Kevin Weaver that battery life will _not_ be an issue in
    the 3G iPhone. He apparently actually believed those that claimed the reason
    3G wasn't on rev 1 was due to battery life.

    > I am amused over how some of the iPhone-haters believe they "know" what

    There's no need to speculate, as the actual reasons for the lack of 3G on
    rev 1 were never a secret, and they had nothing to do with battery life.

    > There is a fine line between the iPhone-haters and the fanboys (especially
    > in the logic department).


    I am neither an iPhone hater nor a fanboy. Just someone that happens to know
    that battery life had nothing to do with Apple's decision to not include 3G
    on rev 1.

    Next time do at least a little research before making a fool of yourself.
    Oxford provides enough idiocy for the entire group, and we don't need
    another one.

    It seems they could have set up the iPhone so this sort of change could be
    done with a software update.

    Wow, is that, like, your best shot? Cuz I gotta tell ya' I'm not really

    I see: "you" were explaining to Kevin Weaver. Just like Oxford you post
    under multiple IDs.

    Bull****. Let's see, Oxford changes posting names and who else does that. Oh
    yea, you just did that too.

    Looks like I was right on the money.

    No, I just see how the battery life SUCKS! Friend has one. No thanks. By
    apple not allowing the end user to change there own is sad. But send it in
    to apple for a replacement. Have to keep that $$ rolling in.

    If the battery burns up in your pocket at least you will know who to sue.
    And luckily that will be Apple and they have the $$$ as you so thoughtfully
    wrote.

    Now go away AssHat

    Frankly, compared to many other smartphones, including mine (an HTC Wizard)
    the iPhone has a phenominal battery lie. I'd willingly weld my phone's
    battery door shut in exchange for the iPhone's per-charge life!

    I wouldn't be happy with that either, although if you're not afraid of a
    soldering iron, I don't expect it to be a problem. Considering how much
    volume of my phone is wasted by the plastic walls of the battery
    compartment that could've been used by more battery volume, I'm not sure I
    completely disagree with their decision.

    Wow! Let's see how Oxford's going to explain a 3G iPhone after he's spent
    five months explaining how it was unnecessary (due to WiFi) and would have
    made it too bulky and power consuming!

    I just bought one of those from Duracell. It's a clear blister pack
    apparently powered by the 4 AA batteries inside, that says it's good until
    Dec. 2013. ;-)
