    I'm thinking that Apple called the new iPhone "iPhone 3G" because of the Comwave dispute in Canada. Comwave trademarked 'iPhone" in Canada, but they didn't trademark "iPhone 3G", so Apple made their move. Also, rumors pointed several months before WWDC that Apple would change the name for iPhone in Canada, and looks like they did after all. Then I'm assuming Apple decided to call it "iPhone 3G" for the rest of the world too, and they did just that.

    It's called the 3G, because that is the network it is on!!!

    You know, it having 3G capabilities have nothing to do with it.
