adding 3g would be considered a new radio device would it not? If so it would have to be approved by the FCC.. As i have seen no sign of a new iphone being presented to the FCC, (DT would have posted an article about it I'm sure ;) ) I really doubt we will be seeing a new iphone anytime soon..

It's my guess here it has something to do with compenents, or the 3rd part dev kit.. could be anything who knows? but i really doubt its a new Iphone...
