    Would apple decide to make a iphone 4gs after they release the 4g? And why did apple choose to release a 3gs after the 3g?

    I doubt they'll call the next device the 4G, it would confuse people because it wont run the 4G network. As for if they plan on making a 'insert new name here'S, its up to apple, who knows.

    The S in 3GS stands for speed, it was a new device which ran much faster than the old device.

    The added s is irrelevant. The 3gs was released a year after the 3g (just like the 3g was released a year after the 2g) so apple will probably release a new iPhone a year after the 4g but the name is not certain. Apple likes to refresh all of their products a year after release of the previous one.

    So since the new 4g has 512 mb of ram they would most likely not need to release something new since I'm sure most people have no need for more ram on a handheld device? If they did release something it would most likely be a change on the physical phone structure?

    I'd say they'll develop a tick-tock pattern, ticks being major revisions.

    2G, Higher Capacity 2G, 3G, 3GS, 4G, etc.

    This was visible in the iPt too.

    1G, Greater Capacity 1G, 2G, 3G, 3G w/ camera.

    We'll just have to wait and see.

    That seems strange considering that the iPad only has 256...
