Although as of this point the only real confirmation of a second generation, 3G iPhone coming in 2008 is from AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, news today indicates that release date may already be pushed back. The push back, should it be a reality, is seemingly a result of Apple's desire to keep sales of the iPhone robust during this holiday shopping season - fearing that a looming release of a newer, better iPhone might scare off potential customers.
The next generation iPhone release date may be pushed back anywhere from two to six months. According to statements from Mehdi Hosseini, an analyst from Friedman Billings Ramsey & Company, "recent checks" have indicated that what was believed to be a March or April release for the new, 3G iPhone could now be pushed back as far as late summer.Does this mean that you should resume your off put plans to buy an iPhone for yourself for Christmas this year? Well, as before, that's up to you. Chances are there won't be a second gen iPhone release date that anyone considers concrete until it comes from Apple itself, and that's certainly not going to come until sometime in 2008. So, if you haven't gotten your hands on an iPhone and are itching to - go buy one. If you'd rather hedge your bets to avoid buyer's remorse in 2008, that's an option as well. Just don't expect firm answers anytime soon.

Only real confirmation? How about...
"You can expect a 3G iPhone later next year... We are working on the next iPhone already, the one after that and the one after that."
This from the grandmaster himself, Steve Jobs, during a press conference at at the Regent Street Apple store in London, on September 18th, 2007.

I have also news for you guys! Have you been praying to get your hands on the Apple iPhone? Well, maybe your prayers will be answered a little sooner than you thought. With the news spreading like wildfire, you may need fast payday loans to secure your chance. There have been reports announcing that the Apple iPhone 3G may soon arrive in the electronics section of the nation’s leading discount retailer – Wal-Mart – for a low price. Sources like Apple Insider claim there is a possibility that Apple and AT&T will supply Wal-Mart with the special model that could sell with a two-year contract for $99. While this is still currently a rumor, it may be true: Wal-Mart has largely been confirmed to begin selling iPhones on December 28th. One Wal-Mart store manager had told the San Jose Mercury News that Apple had hoped to supply the discount stores with iPhones before Christmas but were not able to “get them that fast to us.” Another Wal-Mart manager in Milpitas, California had informed the Mercury News that her store would be getting a 4 GB model. She also stated that her store was expecting to receive some iPhones two days before Christmas. On the other hand, MacRumors is reporting that feedback from Wal-Mart staff states that the $99 iPhone rumor is “unlikely.” Click to read more on Fast Payday Loans.

If true, the release of the 3G iPhone in a few months would outpace AT&T (NYSE: T)’s plans to expand its 3G network to 350 new markets in the US. Still, we have no problem dealing with a bit of spotty 3G coverage in return for an early crack at the next-generation iPhone. www.unclepayday.ca ---
