I'm really pumped up for the announcement of the new iPhone, I'll be picking one up as soon as its available. Is any one else planning on getting one?

If there's a new iPhone, I'm going to be in the market for two, but probably near the end of the summer.

I would need the contract fees to be lowered to attract me. I cannot justify £35/month for my usage, so I won't be tempted.

I think with the iPhone having gone out of stock a couple of weeks ago, an announcement is a given at WWDC, even if availability isn't immediate.

So do I Smile However, I'm always Mr. Anti-Rumor, so I always like to preface my stuff with conditionals.

I have to say it comes down to the contacts and the price. I live in Canada so I'm not sure what Rogers is going to offer yet.

p.s. I second your condition CC. This is still all speculation until it hits the shelves.

I'm gonna go for the cheapest £35 a month contract along with the smallest capacity phone. 8GB is plenty for me as I have my trusty 80GB iPod to house all my music. I literally cannot wait for this thing to be released!

As cool as the gadget is I will pass until any one of the following happens:

1. The contract cost becomes more reasonable.
2. I can use any mobile carrier without modification.
3. It makes me breakfast.

My guess is that these won't happen any time soon....sigh.

I've been thinking between the new iPhone and the Sony Ericcson X1 Xperia (comes out in the fall); but so far I'm really leaning towards the new iPhone cause I love my current iPhone.

...so, yeah, I think I'll be getting one.

But that's the true secret announcement, it'll be the iEat and it'll make more than just breakfast, try lunch AND dinner as well Laughing .

Already an iPhone owner, best phone I've ever owned. I'm glad I didn't wait...

I'm one of those poor Mac users, so, uh, no - not paying that much for a cell phone.

I'm exactly the same. I want a 3G iPhone, but I don't want a £35 contract.

My hope is that it's £269 contract-free, £169 with contract. That would hopefully be a 16GB model...I already have an 8GB touch so I don't know that an 8GB iPhone would feel like a big enough upgrade

considering the iPhone is a Touch with a phone, I can't see the prices for an iPhone ever being less than Touch.

current prices are £199 for a 8G Touch. so its not going to be less than that.
