My iPhone wait has been extended

Both Apple and AT&T are confirming that Apple will be releasing a G3 iPhone in 2008.: Apple to Unveil Faster IPhone

The prospect of a new handset may make some shoppers put off buying an iPhone this year, Gene Munster, an analyst with Piper Jaffray & Co. in Minneapolis, said in an e-mail. The number of shoppers who delay a purchase won't be "enough to make a difference," he said.

That may be true, but I know of at least four they won't be selling this Christmas season. No way I'm shelling out $1600 for phones knowing there is something faster coming in a few months. I live in an area with solid AT&T G3 coverage. Waiting is a no brainer.
