    Post what you want / What you expect / What you think is likely to appear at WWDC.


    I'm going with:

    iPhone 3rd Generation
    • Front facing camera
    • a 3MP - 5MP back camera (with zoom?)
    • Hoping for a budget version... i.e PAYG less than $200
    • an iChat app in the new iPhones only which allows free VoIP from iPhone 3rd Gen to iPhone 3rd Gen

    Snow Leopard announcement... Possibly a release date in August

    I'd LIKE to see a tablet... but I think it will be coming in 2010 and will be ANNOUNCED before the end of 2009. i.e... not Monday
    • With the same features as my Macbook, like iSight camera, glowing back Apple

      Please Register or Log in to view images

    • New gestures specific for the tablet - Whole 5 finger gestures!

    When you guys say glowing apple/light at the back, do you mean the apple is made out of glow in the dark material, or that it really lights up using the iphone's power? If its the later.. than.. noooooooooo way would i want that.

    That would drain the iPhone's battery so fast. I don't think Apple will want their phones to die in a few hours.

    Here's what I think will happen:

    • General Stuff:
    • Showcase of 3.0, and a demonstration of a hidden feature that Apple's been hiding from us (Possibly Video Recording or something else.)
    • New, simplified, completely GUI-based SDK, available on both OS X and Windows.
    • Sales figures, increased Market Share, blah blah blah....
    • Mobile iTunes video store.
    • Snow Leopard demonstration + tentative release date/price.
    • Various games/software demonstrations.
    • Capcom announces its 10 games in production for the iPhone/iPod touch.
    • The 3.0 download going live the day of (or after) the keynoye.

      iPhone 3G:
    • 32GB Model introduced.
    • 8GB Model phases out.
    • 16GB model becomes $179.99
    • 32GB model priced at $249.99

      New iPhone:
    • Smaller, cheaper iPhone, called "iPhone Lite" or "iPhone Nano".
    • Matte black finish.
    • Camera Shutter button on the lower right corner.
    • Comes in 4GB/8GB versions.
    • 4GB model priced at $99.99
    • 8GB model priced at $129.99

      New Mac Product:
    • MacBook Air rebranded as the "MacBook Lite".
    • Snow Leopard pre-installed.
    • 160GB and 300GB Solid-State Drives.
    • OLED Screen.
    • 160GB version priced at $459.99
    • 300GB version priced at $549.99

    Trust me you will never EVER get a simplified GUI SDK on Windows.

    Sure
    Matte black finish.
    I highly doubt that one.
    Camera Shutter button on the lower right corner.
    Could see it happening.

    No... 4gb is just too small for an iPhone.
    4GB model priced at $99.99Not happening
    8GB model priced at $129.99WAAAAYY Underpriced.

    guys the backlight on a macbook is actually just the light on the screen going all the way through a clear spot..this is easy to do on a mac because there arent parts in the way..in an iphone there are a plethora of parts that block the screen from the actual back..so its highly unlikely
