When Meg Ryan's Sally wails "I'm going to be forty!" in When Harry Met Sally, Billy Crystal rolls his eyes and says "...in eight years!"
Perhaps you'll react the same way when we tell you there's a new iPhone coming out...in the second half of 2008. Might as well be eight years, and there's no hard release date set; the rough estimate is provided by Goldman Sachs analysts with access to Apple's Asian suppliers. As for details?
...a second-generation iPhone [is] currently in the "final design phase," the analyst said. The handset is expected to "have a similar form factor as the current version although it could have a different look and will probably include 3G capability."
Bailey estimates that the next-gen iPhone will launch sometime during the second half of the year, but also believes the company will tie (sic) over consumers with "a smaller upgrade with more flash memory earlier in the year."
Just wait for the onslaught of ridiculous speculative renderings, coming soon to ten blogs near you.
