    Recently, rumors have surfaced of a new iPhone that Engadget says may be given the name of the "iPhone HD" and the Wall Street Journal reports that this, along with the iPad, may be Apples 'good-bye' to AT&T exclusivity of the iPhone and may make deals with other cellular carriers (like Verizon). Whether that is true or not cannot be confirmed but there is some evidence surrounding the speculations!

    Along with the rumors of Apple breaking their exclusivity with AT&T there are also speculations of this so-called "iPhone HD" and what kind of improvements we should expect to see along with it.

    And along with that Apple is said to be working on OS 4.0 which will hopefully have a new polished look and be more intuitive, productive, and customizable. We may also hope to see the "iPhone HD" shipped with 4G data capabilities!

    Whether these things are true can't be determined but by the sound of it all, as John Gruber said, it sounds very plausible. All we can do is sit and wait for some more news surrounding these rumors for them to be deemed true.

    I highly doubt they would call it the "HD" due to the fact of the Zune HD and a few HTC phones with that in their title. Apple wouldn't use something that has been taken a few times.

    Yeah they wouldn't call it the HD. Apple have never stuck "HD" on the end of anything before.
    I'm doubting this story very much, since I've seen so many rumours like this so many times, but if it was going to have anything put on the end, it'd most likely be "Pro".

    I do agree that it probably wouldn't be HD; Pro seems like a valid guess.

    Wasn't the 'iPhone HD' called the iPhone 3GS?

    This name definitely been thrown around in the past before.

    Didn't i warn you? Hate to say it but, I told you that you would have felt this way you never realize something isn't "good enough" until you find something better. But no... you told me the 3gs was all you needed
